The RHOD mom recently revealed that she experienced three car accidents while filming Season 1. "I don't know if you noticed, but last year I had three different cars during the ten episodes, because I had three different accidents during filming," she told AOL Entertainment. "I would get so flustered! I wrecked my car, my loaner car and then my car again. I lost my insurance, so I also had to get someone to drive me around [this season]."
Of course, this season has had its own stressors for Stephanie, most notably her falling out with onetime bestie Brandi Redmond. "I felt so lost, almost to the point where I wasn't healthy," she said, referring to when she and Brandi weren't on speaking terms. "My world had stopped. For me, I went in [to this season] wanting to find myself. I knew I could learn from the experience, because whenever something bad happens, you can grow from it or you can let it control you. I wanted to grow from it and become a better person."
Though Stephanie said she felt like she "was in mourning" during this rough patch with Brandi, she ultimately found that experience to be beneficial. "I will say that it was the best thing that ever happened to me," she said. "I think she might say the same thing."
In fact, Stephanie recently tweeted that she doesn't have any regrets when it comes to penning the Bravotv.com blog that inspired much of the drama.
But the tension between Stephanie and Brandi is far from over on RHOD. Catch a sneak peek of how it will unfold in Monday night's episode at 10/9c, below.
