When Kelly Dodd came face-to-face with Shannon Beador in the ladies' room at the Quiet Woman restaurant on Monday's The Real Housewives of Orange County, relations between the two SoCal moms escalated -- and fast. Lukewarm conversation turned into a full-on argument -- that even ended out in the dining room when Shannon threw a plate to the ground.
"Even if I don’t even like somebody, I still try to be cordial and try to be nice. And for her to, right off the cuff, to say, 'What the hell are you doing here?' was like really? Like, I’m not supposed to be here? This is my Regal Beagle," she told The Daily Dish. "Like, this is where I hang out. This is my neighborhood bar, everyone wanted to come here. I know everybody there. I mean, I wasn’t trying to start a fight with her. It just escalated. She was still in the bathroom, and Lydia’s doing her prayer thing, trying to get everything straightened out. I went to go see Tamra. Tamra and I have — were at odds with each other, but I wanted to be the bigger person and be together and be nice and try to make amends with Tamra. Then, that’s when Shannon came around and telling me off and telling me to get out of her table. So I don’t like, like when Heather Dubrow told me to get out of the restaurant. I don’t like somebody doing that to me. It’s like, you’re not the authority, you don’t own the restaurant. It’s not your table, it’s not your place. Her weakest link was her weight, so that’s why I said, 'Keep eating' because I wanted to hurt her. There’s always things that you regret or think you could’ve done something better or — but it was what it — happened that way."
The dinner marked a first for Peggy Sulahian, who hadn't had the opportunity to hang with the OC crew until that very night. "Poor Peggy! Poor everyone! Poor the patrons that were there," Kelly shared. "Everyone stopped. The plate was so loud, I can't believe it didn't break. It was so loud. The whole restaurant was quiet and everyone turned around."
So given the unforgettable events of that day, does Kelly still hang out at the Quiet Woman? In fact, she does, and she even went there three days later with Vicki Gunvalson. "I go there at least twice, three times a week," she said. "It's literally across [the street]. I eat there all the time. Everybody knows me by name. I know all the waitresses. I know the cooks. I know everybody."
