Kelly Dodd and her husband, former Fox News correspondent Rick Leventhal, are getting shredded over their "classless" Halloween costumes, but he's hardly sorry.
On Oct. 31, Rick dressed up as Alec Baldwin's character from "Rust," whereas Kelly donned a Native American headdress — both of them posed with prop guns.
"Kelly celebrated her Native American heritage & I celebrated the great American film actor Alec Baldwin #happyhalloween🎃," he captioned two photos, one of which showed the former "Housewives" star holding a gun to her head.
Under normal circumstances, Kelly's headdress would likely get the brunt of the criticism (and it got a lot,) but most of the scathing comments were reserved for Rick. Fans, many of whom have defended the controversial couple in the past, shredded the duo for seemingly making light of the incident on the set of "Rust," in which Alec accidentally shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins while rehearsing a scene.
"You two have no class," one person said. "Your [sic] perfect for each other."
Another added, "I am a conservative and usually support you and Kelly but this is poor taste… I'm sure you wouldn't be dressing up like that if it were your daughter that had been shot."
"I always defend you two, but this is pathetic," a third person added.
Droves of people noted that Halyna has a young son who will now grow up without his mother, something that is clearly no laughing matter.
As fervor grew, Rick scoffed at the backlash, telling Page Six he has no regrets.
"In no way was I trying to offend anyone, except Alec Baldwin," Rick said. "He's a jerk and deserves all the heat he's getting."
Several of Rick's Instagram followers suspected that Kelly was behind his costume, which was dubbed "insensitive," "not funny," "classless," "embarrassing" and more. A handful of fans actually applauded the costumes, but those voices were largely drowned out by the critics.
Some people suspected that Kelly and Rick hoped to ruffle feathers with their outfits now that she no longer has the "The Real Housewives of Orange Country" platform, having been fired from the Bravo show in June 2021.
"Trying with all the have to stay relevant! In poor taste but they know that," one person said. Another added, "Trying to stay relevant likeeee."
Speaking about the duo's costumes, Rick said, "We planned our costumes weeks ago, and I just decided to be [Alec] at the last minute."
