“This is bulls—,” Dubrow said of the “vulgar, vile display” from Dodd. Standing up from Tamra Judge and Meghan King Edmonds‘s Japanese dinner party, she shouted: “I’m done. This is not okay. This is low-based bulls—, and I am not doing this.”
“I don’t even want to be associated with this,” she cried on the phone to her husband, Terry, in the car ride home. “I don’t want anybody to see me with this woman.”
Dubrow’s language was nothing compared to the words Dodd threw towards Shannon Beador.
“You’re a friggin’ c— is what you are,” she snapped at Beador. “You are despicable.”

The attack stemmed from gossip spilled at Beador’s disastrous ’70s party a few episodes back by her friend Nina.
“I heard her. She said you suck d— to pay your bills,” Edmonds repeated, of Nina’s claims.
“Could you imagine – you’re a mother and you’ve work your whole life, hard, and you’ve never done anything wrong and some girl is over there calling you a prostitute?” Dodd wondered. “It’s disgusting a mother could say such horrible things about somebody they don’t even know.”
While Beador protested that Nina never specifically said she was a prostitute, her defense only angered Dodd, who said she no longer believed Beador’s claims of innocence in the ’70s party attack.
“Who says that for my daughter to hear?” Dodd asked Beador. “That’s why there’s laws for defamation of character.”

Coming to Beador’s defense, Judge attempted to put things into perspective for Dodd. “You said a lot of s—, too, so if you’re going to talk s—, you gotta be able to take it,” she told her. “If [Nina’s] lying, why do you care? Is she affecting your life?”
“Yes, you dumb f—,” Dodd shot back at Judge. “Yes! I don’t want my daughter to hear that.”
But calling Judge a “dumb f—” wasn’t going to help Dodd’s cause. Despite, ironically, having advised Beador “not to engage” with Dodd at the party, Dubrow exploded.
“Kelly, this is not okay,” she told her. “I think that you are probably a very good person at heart. This behavior is not acceptable. Leave.”
When Dodd wouldn’t, Dubrow did instead. “I’m so disgusted by what’s going on that I feel like I’m choking,” she told viewers. “I feel suffocated – I have to get out.”

Dodd did her best to apologize for her words, telling both Judge and Beador that she was being impulsive and had overreacted. “I didn’t meant to call you that,” she said. “I’m so sorry – I was just so upset that that just came out of my mouth and I did not mean that, honest to God.”
Judge – whose baptism and Christianity were a big part of her story line last season – felt compassion for Dodd.
“I feel like this women needs to be loved,” she told Beador. “You look in her eyes and you see pain.
She explained to viewers: “When I was in my marriage to Simon I was in so miserable that when somebody pissed me off it was my chance to get all my anger and frustration out and directed towards them. And I really feel that’s what’s going on with Kelly.”

But despite Judge’s insistence and Dodd’s regrets, it appears Dodd’s anger may have severed any chance she had of being friends with Beador and Dubrow. Both Housewives appeared to be done with her by episode’s end.
“Kelly Dodd – that vicious woman – has attacked me three times in a very short period,” Beador said. “I can’t take it anymore. Three strikes, you’re out.”
“I have four children, a husband, and a really good life,” Dubrow told Judge. “That girl? I do not want to see ever again.”
