The Real Housewives of Orange County ended the season with a fight, a facelift and a fall in the pool.

Shannon Beador's feud with Gina Kirschenheiter exploded when the two stars confronted each other at Emily Simpson's Femme Fatal party and Tamra Judge was in the middle of it all.

"I have a hang-up with the Femme Fatal because I feel like it is going to be a big orgy," Judge confessed while getting ready for the bash with Beador. "All these old ladies in leather getups with their saggy tits and whips. That can be fun," she joked.

Judge warned Beador that Kirschenheiter wanted to clear the air with her following their Jamaica fight.

"It is so funny that Emily is going to try and put labels on me or diagnose me when this is a girl that threatened someone's life," Beador told Judge. "It is so irresponsible and unethical to put a medical label on someone. It is potentially damaging."

"I think they're both sh*t stirrers," Beador said about Simpson and Kelly Dodd.

Soon, Judge, Kirschenheiter and Beador got into a heated argument at the Femme Fatal party held at Simpson's mother-in-law's mansion.

"I blew up at a dinner party after having a few shots," Beador confessed, but insisted to Kirschenheiter: "I am completely mentally sane."

"Shannon, please don't kill the messenger," Kirschenheiter begged, saying she was trying to be her friend. "I'm concerned because of what your friends are saying and the way you're acting!" which infuriated Beador.

"The way that I'm acting?" she yelled.

"I'm just telling you your friends are concerned for you," Kirschenheiter continued. "If you're fine you're fine, I don't even care. I'm trying to be your friend too. I don't wish you any malice. Your name will literally never come out of my mouth again."

Kirschenheiter said in her confessional that she expected Judge to be on her side.

"The fact that Tamra doesn't defend me over it is upsetting. I've never given Tamra any reason to believe I would damage her friendship with anybody. She's blinded by Shannon's bullsh*t."

But Judge turned on Beador in her confessional.

"She internalizes everything, and she can't let it go. She's like my ex-husband, if she's pissed off about something 10 years ago I'm still hearing about it. She has to let things go and move on."

Beador explained her meltdown when Simpson and Dodd joined the conversation.

"I drank a lot that night and I got emotional and I'm really sick and tired of my mental capacity being… I'm working so hard at being non-reactive that is what is so frustrating to me," she said.

Simpson told her that she never "made a diagnosis" about her but apologized for the situation.

"If I hurt your feelings that was not my intent. Shannon, I hope you and I can get to a place where we move forward."

But bitter Beador didn't really believe her. "Do I think your apology is getting sincere?" she said in her confessional. "I have no idea."

"I think that went well," Judge said about the blowout . "She's just Shannon. That's all I can say. She's f**king amazing. She is."

Kirschenheiter disagreed. "F**k," she said while Dodd weighed in. "Shannon's behavior is really erratic, and I think that is what is frustrating to Gina."

But Beador insisted she was not mentally unstable. "Life is incredibly good. I have been able to navigate raising three daughters on my own. I can do this on my own and my kids are going to be ok."

Vicki Gunvalson did not take part in the bizarre argument, but she did join the women who praised her for her recent facelift.

"Do I look any different?" she asked the ladies. "You got rid of your gobble wobble," Kirschenheiter said, which wasn't well-received.

"Holy crap that makes me want to go get one," Dodd said.

The episode ended with updates about the women.

"Shannon has lost over 25 pounds and is 10lbs away from her goal weight. And, for now, she is fine with Archie being the man of the house."

"Tamra and Eddied sold their home and are moving into a gated community. No need for a housewarming party…"

"Gina is in the process of finalizing her divorce. Which means no more sex with Matt…"

Gunvalson spoke about her desire to marry her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, and asked him to go to premarital counseling with her.

"Vicki and Steve have not yet gone to premarital counseling…and she's still waiting for a ring," her updated revealed.

"Kelly has started dating a new guy she met through Shannon... but she's keeping her 'bench' full, just in case."

"Emily still wants another daughter, but Shane does not. She paid the embryo storage fees for 2019… in case she changes his mind."

Simpson and Kirschenheiter ended the wild party by falling into the pool, fully clothed!
