Kelly Dodd also reacts to fan support criticizing Bravo for airing the allegations in the first place.
"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" alum Brandi Glanville seemingly had quite the reaction to Tuesday night's explosive episode of "The Real Housewives of Orange County," which saw Kelly Dodd's co-stars speaking openly about a rumor involving Dodd and a "train" of multiple men.
"The moment you swear to not talk about a RUMOR you may have heard within ur group, yet you KNOW 100% your on f--king camera your a f--king hypocritical asshole," Brandi tweeted after the episode aired, adding a hashtag we assume was supposed to say "gross."

Although Brandi didn't mention anyone by name, it's pretty clear her tweet was aimed at the stars of "RHOC," after Tamra Judge blurted out the "train" allegation on the show during a group dinner at which Dodd was not present.
During the dinner, Vicki Gunvalson cryptically claimed Kelly had beef with her because she knows "more than I've said." That led to Tamra shouting, "Are you talking about the train?" The room got quiet. Vicki's face dropped as she insisted, "Tamra, do not talk about that!"
"We had a code of silence that none of us were gonna talk about the choo choo train," Gunvalson said during a confessional. "Tamra, Shannon and I discussed it, and I said nothing good can come from this. This is all gonna be super damaging."
On Tuesday's new episode -- which began moments after Tamra's outburst from the week prior -- Judge elaborated further, explaining to the camera that pulling a train means having sex with multiple people, one right after the other.
"I heard the train rumor when Vicki heard it, and my mouth's been shut ever since I did. This is not okay," Shannon Beador said during her own confessional. "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."
During dinner, the ladies agreed they didn't want to continue the conversation, but that's exactly what Tamra ended up doing in the car on their way home. "It's just a rumor that [Vicki] heard," she explained to the cast members who were in the dark. "She said, 'Eight guys pulled a train on Kelly.'"
At that moment, Gina Kirschenheiter tried to shut it down, saying, "We're never bringing this up. We're never letting Vicki bring this up. This is where it lies and dies." But newcomer Braunwyn Windham-Burke thought that meant "don't tell anyone else," not "don't tell Kelly."
So she called Dodd and told her. Kelly was pissed. So was Gina. "This is absolutely ludicrous! I've never even done a threesome, let alone a train," Kelly said in a confessional. It wouldn't be the last time the allegations came up -- see our full recap here.
For her part, Kelly posted about the episode prior to it airing, before reacting to a couple fan tweets about the allegations after it ended.
"Going to Beverly Hills for some retail therapy," she captioned a photo from the ladies' day on Rodeo Drive. "It's [supposed] to be @ginakirschenheiter day, but the focus was on lies and rumors which are about me! See who the snake is..."
Following the show, a fan tweeted at her, writing, "@RHOC_KellyDodd GIRL, I've had a train pulled on me and it was great. So if it's true then GET YOUR LIFE. If it's not true then F--K EVIL VICKI. She is the goddam worst and should have been fired! @Andy @CotoInsurance @TamraBarney @ShannonBeador."
Dodd's response: "That's hilarious."
Another 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."
To that, Kelly responded with a simple "Thank you."
"The Real Housewives of Orange County" airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
