Tamra Judge and Kelly Dodd finally went toe to toe in an epic battle when the two could no longer keep their distance from each other during a girls’ trip to Miami. The “Real Housewives of Orange County” castmates, who’ve been in a full-out war over the past three weeks, confronted one another in Tuesday night’s episode, which ended by Tamra screaming at Kelly to “go suck some d—- for money” because she says that’s what her co-star “does best.”
The night was not without drama amongst all of the ladies. Prior to Dodd and Judge’s showdown, Braunwyn Windham-Burke convinced all her castmates, including Vicki Gunvalson, to head to the Sunshine State for a little rest and relaxation. Kelly took the most convincing but after a one-on-one with Braunwyn over margaritas, she was in and pledged to keep her distance from the Tres Amigas. The trip was pretty mild until the women got on their party dresses and headed to the hottest strip club in town. Tamra dressed in a tiny bright-pink dress and got up on a side stage to get attention, something Kelly was quick to judge. Dodd had the ultimate slam when she stated to the cameras that Tamra was “a thirsty chick” and thought she was 20 years old.
Kelly Dodd also made trouble with Shannon Beador that night when they got back to the hotel from the strip club. Screaming across the lobby at her co-star, Kelly told Shannon that the hair she was sporting (which included long extensions) was wack. “When you get over 50 you don’t need to be wearing hair extensions,” Kelly was heard shouting at Shannon but only after Beador accused her of tugging on the hair, something Dodd denied. Things really peaked between the trio the following day at the pool. After Shannon confided in Braunwyn that she felt attacked by Kelly, cameras panned to the pool bar which showed Dodd all by herself on her computer and having a drink. She looked peaceful while solo until Tamra and Shannon went in on her.
Prior to the blowout, Braunwyn tried to be the peacemaker between Kelly, Tamra, and Shannon but it just started drama. When Beador and Dodd started arguing over the week prior, which was when Kelly went after the girls over their role in the Jim Bellino lawsuit, Kelly shouted at Shannon, “It had nothing to do with you!” That’s when Tamra jumped in and stated that Kelly meant for the comments to hurt her, not Shannon. The duo finally addressed the train rumor which left Tamra screaming at Kelly from across the bar, “Go suck some more d— for money. That’s what you do best!”
Tamra and Kelly’s feud was definitely the highlight of the episode but Vicki also announced her engagement to Steve Lodge, an event that she ~~purposely~~ left Braunwyn and Kelly out of. Besides the feud and Vicki’s giant rock, Shannon Beador finalized her divorce to David Beador revealing her $1.4 million divorce settlement after several tearful weeks of thinking she’d get nothing. “RHOC” airs on Bravo every Tuesday at 9 PM PT.
