Kelly Dodd made a stunning confession about joining "The Real Housewives of Orange County" on Tuesday. She shared her thoughts with fans about how she felt following Monday night's episode in which she upset several of the other cast members with her behavior.

Kelly Dodd felt targeted

Dodd wrote in her blog on Bravo that after aggravating Vicki Gunvalson, infuriating Tamra Judge, and alienating Heather Dubrow, she felt ostracized. The "RHOC" star apologized for offending anyone with her joke about Jewish people, but was truly bemused by the sensitivity of the women.

Kelly expressed her shock over Tamra coming at her the way that she did -- not only for the "bold face lie" she said about having Kelly's realtor look into Heather's finances, but over the comment made about her daughter. Kelly told Shannon that it's no wonder Tamra's daughter doesn't talk to her. After Shannon took this information straight to Tamra, Tamra went scorched earth on Kelly. What happened next was a tense exchange that cameras didn't catch, but viewers could hear the commotion.

Did Tamra hit Kelly? Kelly claims she did, and was in a lot of pain after the incident. Dodd also complained of being traumatized following their heated exchange.

'Real Housewives' franchise is all the things she wasn't prepared for?

What's surprising to read about Kelly Dodd's thoughts after the show, is the stunning confession she made about signing on as a Housewife. She knew her life and the life of her family would be exposed appearing on the show, but admits she had no idea her reputation and character would come under scrutiny based on "reckless scheming." What's more, she reveals that she didn't expect to be the target of rage from the other women.

Her confession is stunning in that anyone who's familiar with "Real Housewives" knows, scheming and making someone the villain is existential. Maybe Dodd figured she wouldn't be targeted on "RHOC" or that she'd be villainized this season.

"The Real Housewives of Orange County" airs Monday nights on Bravo at 9 p.m., ET/6 p.m., PT.
