Part three of The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion turned into the nastiest cast war ever when Shannon Beador bitterly fought costars Tamra Judge and Gina Kirschenheiter.

But first, episode kicked off with a discussion about Kelly Dodd's dating life after divorcing ex-husband Michael.

"We saw at the end of the season that you and Michael were getting along pretty great? How are things now?" host Andy Cohen asked.

"He's got a full-on girlfriend now and I have never met her," Dodd said before Cohen asked co-star Vicki Gunvalson if he she had met the new lady.

As fans know, Gunvalson and boyfriend Steve Lodge have remained friends with Dodd's ex after the two divorced — which has caused major friction between the friends turned enemies.

"Yes. I have met her," Gunvalson admitted. "I don't think they're a match made in heaven. She is a lot, lot younger. She is 38. I just feel a 38 and a 60-year-old is a big difference."

Cohen asked Dodd: "Do you want to settle down?"

"I would like to settle down, yes," she responded.

Cohen then changed topics to the nasty fight between Dodd and co-star Emily Simpson earlier this season.

As exclusively reported, the drama between the ladies got heated during the reunion when Dodd, Beador and Judge ganged up on Simpson for consistently defending her controversial husband, Shane.

"I felt like it was disproportionate as to what she said to him based on what he said," Simpson said, referring to Shane commenting on Dodd's ex dating one of Gunvalson's friends.

Dodd mimicked Shane's words at the time of the initial argument: "Really? You are drunk! This is your normal behavior? Ew!"

Simpson recalled Dodd's initial words during the fight: "Okay so 'You're a little bitch. You're a motherf***er. You're a twerp."

Dodd responded, "Actually, I could have said a lot more."

Simpson's friend Gina Kirschenheiter, who also just joined the cast this season, then jumped in, adding, "It was disproportionate. It makes you look bad!"

"What are you the morality police?!" Dodd screamed at Kirschenheiter.

The next topic on part three of the reunion was Judge's "co-dependent" relationship with newly divorced Beador.

While Beador recalled her fight this season with Judge, she started to cry hysterically.

"I don't ask for people's time like I do with you. I felt awful. For me to lean on you the way that I did. I don't do that to people. I thought we were close enough to do that. Clearly it was asking too much of you," Beador sobbed.

"Let's talk about what happened in Jamaica," Cohen said, alluding to Beador's major breakdown on the cast trip. "Why were you so against the women suggesting that you go on anti-depressants?"

"Because you can't handle your life. Look at you. You're a mess. You need help," she responded.

"Is that something David said to you?" Judge asked, causing Beador to break down in tears, again.

"All the time," the single mom said. "You just hit a nerve in me right now."

"Are we going to just walk out of here and you aren't going to talk to me until February when we start filming again?" Judge asked.

"I am sorry for talking to Gina and talking to the girls about my feelings. I just couldn't get it out with you. It is a defense thing. I know you're a good person."

"In my marriage I heard that I was selfish and that I was an alcoholic from day one and that I was crazy," Beador cried. (As previously reported, the mom of three has been trying to cut back on booze after her embarrassing meltdown in Jamaica.)

After a lot of back and forth, Kirschenheiter interjected: "You are an open book on bulls**t!"
