The “RHOC” star found herself under attack from fans because she let it “slip” to Vicki Gunvalson about a private conversation she had with Dodd.
Tuesday’s episode was all about Vicki’s high tea birthday party. She and Dodd have had a bad relationship with each spewing accusations against the other.
Fans thought they had made up, but Dodd reignited the fight when she told Tamra she wouldn’t be at the party because “the only celebration I’m doing for her is going to her funeral.”
It appeared that Tamra wasn’t going to tell Vicki but once the alcohol started flowing she spilled the tea and acted like it was on accident.
“She wants me dead?” a shocked Vicki reacted before breaking down in tears.
Fans saw right through Tamra’s ways and instead of throwing Dodd under the bus for her funeral comment, they immediately began slamming the messenger on social media.
“@BravoTV the clip where @TamraBarney let’s [sic] it ‘slip’ about the funeral…just feels staged or better yet…shows just how much Tamra is just evil to cause drama. Really?! #Bravo #RHOC #KellyDodd,” wrote one fan.
Some questioned her motives.
“I’m not buying that @TamraBarney’s slip about your comment of going to @vgunvalson’s funeral in the car wasn’t intentional. But yet you did say it so? Hard to fault her completely,” wrote another.
@TamraBarney pretending to accidentally mention your funeral comment was poor acting… no fucks given about how that would make anyone feel. Just stirring the pot

Lots of fans are over Tamra and blame her (and her mouth) for most of the drama this season.
“Tamra is always the one starting s— & making it look like others were the ones bitching! She mentioned that whole train thing, she told Vicki what you said about her funeral? She is always dropping bombs & running for cover!” added a fan.

Lots of fans predicted Tamra would tell Vicki during the birthday extravaganza.

“RHOC” fans on social media called her things like pathetic and made fun of her.

It ended with Vicki throwing more shade Dodd’s way, this time accusing her of pushing her mother down the stairs.
Once Tamra mentioned the funeral comment, the OG housewife lashed out. “I have not talked about her looks, I have not talked about her family, I have not talked that she pushed her mother down the stairs,” she said.
Tamra, once again instigating, responded, “She pushed her mom down the stairs?!”
Dodd sat down with Andy Cohen on “WWHL” following the episode to talk about the incident.
“RHOC” is on Bravo Tuesdays at 9 PM PT.
