So, that went well.

On April 2nd, Tamra Barney, Vicki Gunvalson and Heather Dubrow were filming for the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Barney was at the wheel of a Polaris RZR (a dune buggy) in Glamis, CA (a desert town near the Arizona border), when it flipped over after going over a hill.

Sources told TMZ over the weekend that Barney "had been warned several times by the people training her to slow down."

One witness saw Gunvalson throw up and complain that she couldn't feel her fingers, and both ladies reportedly complained of neck and back problems.  

Both Judge and Gunvalson were airlifted to the hospital, but were thankfully released over the past few days with no serious injuries.

Judge updated fans via Facebook last night:

So many text , tweets and phone calls asking if this is true. I can confirm it is. Thank you for your prayers and concerns. We are both beat up but very lucky to be alive. I've never been so scared in my life. As the driver I have an overwhelming amount of guilt and just happy that the 4 of us are alive. 

Gunvalson took a photo of the helicopter that airlifted them (weird) and wrote:

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. #itwasntourtime

Though reports never mentioned Dubrow, it's thought she was involved, per her own Instagram update:

"Deep sense of gratitude for my family today. #blessedbeyondmeasure Thank you to all who follow us , we are honored."

Judge was livid about reports insinuating that she was intoxicated at the time of the accident.

"TMZ get your story straight! whoever is giving pictures and statements you are an insensitive POS," she wrote on her Facebook page.

"No alcohol was involved I am currently NOT drinking due to my upcoming fitness competition and it was 11:00 in the morning. No one was training me or telling me to slow down. I have been riding since I was young.

"It was an unfortunate accident coming off a top of a dune and landing wrong. What is wrong with people? are they that miserable that they want someone else to look bad?"
