Kelly Dodd shattered the zen vibe on recent episodes of The Real Housewives of Orange County — wrecking a cast getaway with unhinged outbursts and physical lash-outs.

Viewers watched Kelly Dodd strike Shannon Beador and Gina Kirschenheiter during a cast trip to an Arizona wellness resort — landing Shannon in a local emergency room. But Kelly wasn’t buying what the Miraval Spa was selling — and snapped at any cast mate who stepped out of line.
