Because of the checkered pasts of many other “Real Housewives” stars, Meghan McCain wrote that she was surprised to hear Bravo fired Jennie Nguyen over resurfaced social media posts. “I was surprised to see that new Salt Lake City Housewife and rookie fan-favorite Jennie Nguyen was fired this week after offensive Facebook posts from 2020 emerged,” read McCain’s column for the Daily Mail. While the former “The View” co-host stated she didn’t condone Nguyen’s posts, she felt that the former “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star shouldn’t have been fired due to the posts.
Ultimately, for McCain — who steadfastly speaks out about her Republican politics — the reason Bravo fired Nguyen is due to her conservative stance despite “The Real Housewives” cast member blaming the problematic posts on her social media team. “Apparently the greatest sin you can commit on reality television isn’t breaking federal laws, physically assaulting someone, lying, cheating or stealing — it’s being a vocal Republican,” McCain wrote. She arrived at that opinion because of all the other scandals the housewives have endured over the years. Ultimately, McCain lamented the fact that nearly everything in life has or will become politicized.
