The Real Housewives of Orange County ladies have some opinions on the Keto diet: Tamra Judge tried it — but she got sick, and now speaks out against it. Gina Kirschenheiter thinks it's "stupid." Alum Heather Dubrow and her husband Dr. Terry Dubrow similarly call it just plain "dumb." Vicki Gunvalson's daughter Briana Culberson and her husband Ryan have famously dropped a staggering 107 pounds on Keto.

How to Watch

But for her part, cast mate Kelly Dodd is down with the idea of the Keto diet — and she's giving it a try right now. Sitting down with Bravo at HQ in NYC, Kelly explained she was on day four of the program. And she was relieved to find that boozing was compliant.

Taking out her phone to share her browsing history — because what says more about a person? — Kelly revealed that she had been researching whether her drinking was going to be kosher on the plan.

"I started the Keto diet four days ago," Kelly explained while scrolling. "So I went to look to see what kind of alcohol is good. And I didn’t know this. Fun fact: rum, vodka, gin, tequila, and whiskey have zero grams of carbs. Who knew?"

She continued, "But red wine white wine and light beer have three to four grams, so I guess I can drink straight-up tequila on my Keto diet," she enthused. "And vodka — the rest I don’t like."
