The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11 Episode 16 Recap: Old Ghosts, New Beef

by at .  Updated at .

Were Irish eyes smiling on Meghan, Kelly, Shannon and company Monday on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11 Episode 16?

You don't have to watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online to know that the drama follows the OGs from the OC worldwide.

That being said ...

After a rocky start to their vacation, The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11 Episode 16 saw them try to turn things around.

Try being the operative word.

Meghan King Edmonds took along Kelly Dodd as the group headed to a nearby village in an attempt to locate some of her old relatives.

Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Heather Dubrow and Shannon Beador, meanwhile, traveled to a milk farm to meet Ireland’s top cows.

Seriously. These are the contrived storylines put together by the producers in order to get them into interesting locales to stir up drama.

Speaking of which ...

Later, at dinner, Kelly awkwardly tried to make amends with Tamra after the two brawled and bawled so hard on last week’s episode:

“I’m telling you," Dodd told a serious Tamra, "what I did was wrong and I don’t want to harbor any bad feelings or anything like that.”

Judge's response?

“Thank you, but really Kelly, that’s something that’s so hurtful,” she said, clearly not willing to forgive or relinquish the moral high ground.

Later, tensions escalated as Shannon tried to get Kelly drunk again, in hopes of getting her co-star to do and say some absurd things.

At least that's how Vicki put it, saying, “Shannon has this mission to get Kelly drunk, because she knows that crazy Kelly will come out,”

“This is naked wasted all over again.”

When the ladies made their way back to the airport, no one got naked, and not a moment of air time was wasted as the fit hit the shan.


After calling Shannon a drunk, and a controlling one to boot, Kelly Dodd upped the ante by absolutely going off on her newfound rival.

“Why don’t you go shave your chin? With all that hair on there,” Dodd told a shocked Beador, hitting her hard out of left field with that.


What do you even say in response? Shannon didn't even have to answer that, because one of her co-stars did it for her in this case ...

“You know what Kelly, you always take things to a new low,” Heather Dubrow interjected on her friend's behalf ... not that she's worried. 

After all that Shannon has endured, did she really need to be attacked in such middle school fashion? She's not perfect, but come ON.

“Nothing you can say will hurt me, because you’re trash!” Dubrow added, and something tells us this "trash" has yet to be taken out.

If you know what we mean. We mean that in the coming weeks, expect to see more fireworks as Kelly Dodd vs. The World escalates.
