"ARE YOU ENGAGED YES OR NO??" the fan asked.

That's when Dodd came in and set the record straight. "No babes," she responded.

Dodd sparked engagement rumors when she told fans via Instagram that they were getting married on 10-10-20.

Turns out, that was a joke, but it didn't stop her co-stars like Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson from talking about it on live television.

When the "RHOC" duo were asked about the "engagement" by Andy Cohen, they didn't hold back.

"They just met!" Tamra exclaimed.

"It is ridiculous," Vicki stated. "I don't even think it's been two months."

When Andy asked if they thought the engagement was real, Tamra slammed Dodd saying, "She was probably drunk!"

Vicki responded by stating that her co-star "just wants to get married."
