It was a rough night for Gina.
And we thought last week was explosive!
On Tuesday's new episode of "The Real Housewives of Orange County," Kelly Dodd made Gina Kirchenheiter her latest victim, after smacking Shannon Beador on the head with a mallet while the latter was wearing an energy-clearing metal bowl on her head. (They're at a wellness retreat. Anything goes.)
'RHOC' Recap: Shannon Goes to Urgent Care After Kelly Incident, Nurse Asks If She Wants to Press ChargesView Story
Accompanied by Tamra Judge, Shannon went to urgent care, where a CT scan revealed she had suffered a mild concussion. Despite the diagnosis, Kelly thought Shannon was being dramatic and Tamra was feeding into it.
While Kelly, Gina, Emily Simpson and Braunwyn Windham-Burke waited for Shannon and Tamra's return from the hospital, Kelly asked Gina why she was hanging out with "these old ladies." Gina said Shannon was "at the freaking urgent care" and tried to play devil's advocate, but it backfired big time.
"She's upset that I hit her over the head?" Kelly asked, with Gina replying calmly, "Do I think she's being over-dramatic for the situation? Yes. Do I think you shouldn't have hit her on the head? Yes."
"I knocked some sense into that bitch!" Kelly shouted, before reenacting the smack on Gina. Gina was livid. "Don't f--king touch me, Kelly. Don't f--king touch me. Now I'm f--king pissed. Don't do that. Now I'm f--king out. Don't f--king do that because I already have a f--king court case right now. F--king bitch," Gina loudly muttered as she made her way to her room to pack her bags. "That's it! That's too much!"

Emily and Braunwyn urged Kelly to go apologize, even though she felt she did nothing wrong. So that's the type of "apology" she gave Gina, which only made matters worse. "I'm going home now! Don't f--king touch me! Are you kidding me?! You cross lines! You're out of control!" Gina shouted as she paced all through the house.
"You're out of control," Kelly fired back, which revved up Gina. "I've been nothing but a good friend to you!" the latter yelled. "You know what, Kelly, I can say anything I wanna say to embarrass you, but I won't 'cause you do such a good f--king job of embarrassing yourself!"
"Really?" Kelly replied. "I get DUIs? I get warrants out for my arrest?" After a brief and seemingly genuine moment of remorse from Kelly, Gina decided to bring up how she felt Kelly was "snarky" to her during their girls trip to Beverly Hills.
Ding! Ding! Ding! Round 2.

"No, you gave unsolicited advice," Kelly replied, but Gina felt that "sometimes, you tell your friends what they need to hear and not what they want to hear."
"Well, maybe you should be on a level where I could hear your advice and I could take it if you were accomplished. If you were an accomplished woman..." Kelly said, before Gina cut her off, "Oh, I'm not an accomplished woman?"
"No, you're not," Kelly said, adding in her confessional, "Gina's not an accomplished woman. Her life is a hot mess, and mine is actually in a good place, and she's telling me how to act?"
Kelly insisted she was an accomplished woman because she's "owned 10 homes" and has "millions of dollars." She also said she doesn't "get DUIs," an obvious shot at Gina's arrest. After shouting, "You can't even pay your bills!" at Gina, Kelly repeated, "You're not accomplished," several times.

In tears, Gina stormed into her room to continue packing her bags. Emily followed in an attempt to comfort her friend, but it only led to a conversation neither of the ladies seemed ready to have. Emily said she felt discarded after Gina stopped answering her calls and texts, but the reason Gina stopped answering her calls and texts is because Emily wasn't being understanding about her legal issues. She felt Emily was pushing last week's Las Vegas trip on her and not taking her feelings into consideration.
Bottom line: Emily went to Vegas and performed in a burlesque show to celebrate her 10th wedding anniversary with her husband, Shane, who didn't even attend the performance. His parents did. So Emily likely just really wanted as much support as possible, but Gina was dealing with a DUI arrest, no driver's license and coming to terms with the fact that her husband had an affair and was still the mistress. So when she wasn't getting the support she wanted from Emily, she turned to Shannon, who went through a similar situation last year.
However, the ladies were unable to see each other's side because emotions were running too high, so they just screamed and cried and screamed and cried (on two separate occasions). Emily was offended Gina would befriend the ladies who "treated you like shit for a whole year," but Gina felt Emily's anger and feelings of abandonment had more to do with her marriage than with Gina.
"If you're worried about your image, why are you drinking a bottle of tequila with Shannon in the back of a bus?!" Emily shouted. Gina was pissed. "What's going on with you?" she fired back. "Why are you in Las Vegas dancing burlesque for your father-in-law on your anniversary weekend without your husband?! Like, something's going on there, and that's weird!" Eventually, Emily told Gina to "f--k off!"

Earlier, Kelly had called Tamra on the latter's way back to the wellness retreat to rip her a new one for catering to Shannon's "bullshit," but she was on speakerphone, so Shannon heard every word. When Shannon tried to interject, Kelly said she "called it," cut her off and left her in tears. So the next day, Shannon asked Kelly if she could come over and talk in person. Vicki Gunvalson had arrived late the night prior, and she and Shannon stayed up all night drinking and partying, which Kelly felt only further proved her point that Shannon was exaggerating her injuries.
"Shannon is an extreme narcissistic bitch," Kelly vented to the camera. "She loves people to feel sorry for her, and people need to see that she's a schemer. She's manipulative, and it needs to be stopped."
Later, Vicki tried to cut the awkward group tension by asking Emily how her Vegas show was. That's when Tamra asked why she and Shannon weren't invited. Emily said she didn't think they would want to come, which spiraled into a conversation about how Tamra and Shannon don't know anything about Emily because she doesn't open up or try to make friends. She agreed with what they said, apologized and agreed to move forward in a more positive way.
Vicki then decided that that was the right time to make a speech about how no one in the group purposefully tries to hurt anyone else, which lit up Kelly, who by this point had avoided any and all interactions with her archenemy.
"We don't have any intentions of hurting each other when you ask for dirt on me? You don't have intentions? Those are intentions. You were looking for dirt..." she hurled at Vicki, prompting her to get defensive. Kelly quickly got up and stormed out.
This was all during aerial yoga. How zen!
