Kelly Dodd stated her sharp tongue may have come from her mother, who she recently reconciled with. Admitting she had a "really good" childhood, she added, "But my mom is combative, and she's sharp with her tongue," she added, "I think that's where I learn it from. I feel like, if you're gonna fight with me, it's game on." Mike then asked both women to name "that person or these people who are difficult to love." Obviously, Kelly Dodd's person was Vicki Gunvalson. She also mentioned her brother, Eric, and her ex too. Admitting that her initial reaction is to "punch [Vicki] in the face," Mike ended up giving her the tools to help her combat her issues with the OG member of the OC. The episode ends by teasing the season finale which centers around Vicki Gunvalson's engagement party to Steve Lodge, a celebration that Kelly Dodd actually shows up to. In the preview for next week, Dodd is seen getting into a heated argument with Shannon Beador at the event and Tamra Judge is captured storming out of the party in tears. The "RHOC" finale is set to have plenty of drama and fights, but fans are really geared up for the first part of the season 14 reunion which airs on December 18. "The Real Housewives of Orange County" is on Bravo every Tuesday at 9 PM PT.
