Real Housewives of Orange County has been filled with drama from the first episode. Kelly Dodd has a new man– again. Kelly sent her former bestie, the newly demoted Vicki Gunvalson, an Animoji pig that called Vicki fat and ugly.
Kelly also let the world know that she thinks her RHOC co-stars Tamra Judge and Vicki are “stale,” and that Tamra should be the next Housewife to lose her orange. Then Vicki, Tamra, and Shannon Beador called Kelly “a train wreck” on the Jerry O Show. What is the fascination with trains this season?
So, when Shannon, Vicki, Tamra, Gina Kirschenheiter, and newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke met for dinner, it wasn’t long before Kelly was dragged through the mud. Vicki, who is working overtime to get her orange back, told the ladies that she knows a terrible secret about Kelly. Then, Tamra blurted out, “What…are you talking about the train?” Tamra will throw anyone under the
train bus to keep her Housewife position.
According to toofab, the Tres Amigas made a pact to
destroy save Kelly’s reputation. In a confessional from RHOC, Vicki stated, “We had a code of silence that none of us were gonna talk about the choo choo train. Tamra, Shannon and I discussed it, and I said nothing good can come from this. This is all gonna be super damaging.” Tamra revealed on the show that pulling a train means having sex with multiple people, one right after the other. I must admit, I was shook by this allegation.

During her confessional, Shannon was clear about her feelings about the rumor. “I heard the train rumor when Vicki heard it, and my mouth’s been shut ever since I did. To put a notion out there that a woman would have sex with multiple men in front of others is disgusting, and I will have no part of that rumor,” Shannon stated. The Tres Amigas pact to never let this information be known was an epic fail. I guess keeping their mouths shut was truly “Mission: Impossible” for this group.
On the way home from that shocking dinner, Tamra told her co-stars, “It’s just a rumor that [Vicki] heard. She said, ‘Eight guys pulled a train on Kelly.'” Then Gina told her co-stars that the rumor “lies and dies” there in the car. Apparently, Braunwyn decided that Kelly needed to know about the rumor, so she called and told her. Braunwyn may be new, but she is already trying to secure a spot for next season.
An enraged Kelly told the RHOC cameras that “This is absolutely ludicrous! I’ve never even done a threesome, let alone a train.” She is also hurt that her supposed friends did not tell her about the vulgar gossip.
But Kelly is getting some support from a surprising source– former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville. Brandi is no stranger to starting rumors. Or being the subject of them. The RHOBH alum took to Twitter to share her thoughts. (please excuse the spelling in this post.) “The moment you swear to not talk about a RUMOR you may have heard within ur group, yet you KNOW 100% your on f***ing camera your a f***ing hypocritical a**hole. #gtoss,” Brandi tweeted.
Although she doesn’t name any particular hypocrites, it is a fair assumption that Brandi is referring to Kelly’s RHOC co-stars. Kelly also took to social media to express her feelings. Before the episode about the train rumor aired, she posted on Instagram, “Going to Beverly Hills for some retail therapy.. it’s supposed to be @ginakirschenheiter day .. But the focus was on lies and rumors which are about me!!.. See who the snake is… #rhoc #bravotv tune in @[email protected]”
Kelly also received fan support after the already infamous episode aired. Toofab reported that a fan tweeted, “@BravoTV shame on you Bravo! Tamera, Vicki & Shannon coordinate that smear against @RHOC_KellyDodd & any other company would have fired their employee. They shouldn’t have said it, YOU shouldn’t have aired it! It’s getting way below the belt.”
Kelly responded to the tweet saying, “Thank you.”
It looks like this event is the catalyst for the end of Kelly’s friendships with Tamra and Shannon. Vicki was already on the outs. Viewers will no doubt see the fall out from the “blame train” as the rest of Season 14 airs.
TELL US- DO YOU THINK THAT TAMRA BROUGHT UP THE TRAIN RUMOR ON PURPOSE? SHOULD BRAUNWYN HAVE TOLD KELLY ABOUT THE RUMOR? DO YOU THINK THAT KELLY WILL FORGIVE SHANNON, TAMRA, AND VICKI?
