Real Housewives Of Orange County: Kelly Dodd storms off after friends again bring up group sex rumor

A nasty sex rumor about Kelly Dodd had the cast buzzing on Tuesday’s episode of The Real Housewives Of Orange County and left her yelling at all of her friends.

As the season 14 episode opened, new cast member Braunwyn Windham-Burke revealed that she was planning to tell Kelly, 43, about the sex rumor.

Vicki Gunvalson, with whom she had shared dinner with the night before, nonchalantly mentioned that she had dirt on Kelly, which castmate Tamra Judge jumped at, asking ‘the train?’.

It turned out that someone had started a rumor suggesting Kelly had been part of a ‘train,’ having sex with eight men in a row and Braunwyn felt she had to tell Kelly.

‘This is absolutely ludicrous,’ complained Kelly, just back from a restful trip to Aspen with her daughter Jolie, 13. ‘I’ve never even done a threesome, let alone a train.’

As they all gathered to catch up the next day, their friend Gina Kirschenheiter, 35, was having her own problems. 

She’d lost a sunglasses case with the keys to her home.

‘No passport, no license, no keys to either of the houses that I have,’ she observed. ‘I’m telling you I’m really not adulting well lately.’

Gina had been struggling recently, and her friends planned to take her to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills for the first time, to ‘pop my Rodeo cherry,’ she said.

‘It’ll be pink and shiny and filled with diamonds,’ Braunwyn cracked.

Before the trip, Gina met with her therapist Lynnette Wilhardt to discuss what had been going on in her life, particular with her ex-husband Matt, who helped raise their three kids.

In February, Gina got a DUI, which she told Lynnette was ‘a reality check.’ She said she had been too stressed out from trying to hold her life together, and had made a really bad decision.

She had gotten that aspect of her life under control, but another issue loomed, Gina noted. She had discovered that Matt was dating a woman with whom he had an affair years before.

‘It’s a gut punch,’ she confessed, crying. ‘And I didn’t tell anybody. I told nobody ’cause I just kept thinking, it’s my family, and I wanted to protect my family, ’cause I didn’t want my family to be broken up.’

‘I do hold everything in and I think I can handle everything,’ Gina told the cameras later. ‘I’m like, ”I’m fine, I’m gonna manage this, I’m gonna fix everything”.’

‘And then it gets to a point where too much stuff builds and happens, and you realize it’s like holding poison inside your body, and it’s just starting to kill you.’

She had to make a choice, she told Lynnette.

‘I feel like it’s either me or him at this point, because I’m drowning in his secrets and I can’t do it anymore.’

Lynnette suggested Gina acknowledge she was enabling Matt, which she agreed to do.

‘It’s obviously embarrassing for Matt, but it’s also embarrassing for me,’ Gina admitted. ‘Nobody likes to feel like they weren’t good enough.’

Making things even harder was the fact that their four-year-old daughter Sienna appeared to be having developmental issues, struggling with her fine motor skills.

Gina thought about asking her ex to move nearby to help, but couldn’t handle being around the woman with whom he’d had the affair.

On top of everything, Shannon Beador, 55, was quoted on a podcast as saying that she thought Gina or her castmate Emily Simpson, 54, might be the next to leave the show.

Emily fired back, making a crack about Shannon being jealous on Twitter.

She also was preparing to perform with a dance troupe called Sexxy for her 10-year-anniversary with her husband, Shane, which they would celebrate in Las Vegas.

Shane, however, said he wasn’t comfortable with the idea.

‘I’m not surprised that Shane shot her down,’ Kelly sniped in a confessional. ‘He’s not a man’s man. Let’s just put it that way.’

At Braunwyn’s house, husband Sean prepared to take their seven kids to Beaver Creek, Colorado, for an annual family trip, while she stayed home and worked on her book.

‘I’m a caregiver—that’s my natural state,’ Braunwyn said, adding that knowing her kids would be okay without her was ‘a hard pill to swallow as a mom.’

She thought back to her own childhood, when her mom was in a band called Candy Apple, she took baths in a bucket, and she sometimes saw cocaine on the table.

‘Now I look back, ’cause I have a four-year-old, and I’m like, ”Wow. That’s not cool”,’ she said.

The ladies gathered to take Gina on the trip to Rodeo Drive, buying her an outfit at Boulmiche.

‘S***, if I knew that sharing my feelings and emotions was going to score me an $800 outift, I would have been spilling my guts a long time ago,’ she cracked.

Emily sat down with her at the store, and told her it was okay to ask for help and Gina repeated that advice back to her.

‘I just feel so overwhelmed, and I feel so much anxiety,’ Emily admitted. ‘I feel like I am just hanging on in each aspect of my life.’

She revealed that her husband, an aspiring lawyer, had not been home for 10 days straight, and was holed up in a hotel, studying for the bar exam.

Inside the store, Shannon was getting upset that no one had brought up Emily’s Tweet, or another one in which she put down her new business.

Over lunch, Emily apologized, which Shannon finally accepted.

‘It’s all good,’ she said. ‘I’m done taking about it.’

They then ended up talking about the rumor Vicki was circulating about Kelly.

‘I don’t really give a f***,’ Kelly fired back, walking off to talk to Jolie on the phone. ‘Why are you even bringing it up? It’s ridiculous. You guys can all go f*** off. All of you.’

She wondered why Shannon and Tamra Judge, 51, hadn’t told her about the rumor.

‘Now I’m questioning if you’re my friend or not,’ she sighed.

Gina tried to make it better by telling her not to be defensive.

‘Just shut up,’ Kelly said. ‘You’re irritating me.’

‘This is supposed to be my day,’ Gina retorted.

‘Maybe shut the f*** up, and it will be your day,’ Kelly sniped.

In a preview of next week’s episode, Shannon was shown telling Tamra that Gina had missed her court date for the DUI, and the judge had issued a warrant for her arrest.
