On The Real Housewives of Orange County this week, there’s rifts between the ladies after last week’s horrific dune buggy crash — but can they be fixed?

Shannon Beador and Meghan King Edmonds refused to visit Vicki Gunvalson at the hospital and this week the pair have dinner at Meghan’s house in La Quinta just a few hours after the accident.

But when Meghan reveals Vicki sent her pics of her on a gurney following the crash, Shannon questions the motivation behind them.

And there’s much bemusement at Kelly downing a beer after the accident.

Vicki and Tamra Judge both had to be airlifted to hospital after their dune buggy did a barrel-roll after leaping into the air during their visit to Glamis Dunes.

Heather Dubrow and Kelly Dodd were both also inside the vehicle but managed to escape unscathed.

But Shannon is dubious about the whole then, and says: “It’s hard to gauge the severity of this accident when Heather and Kelly are popping a beer.”

Meghan says texted Vicki to check everything was ok, adding: “She said, ‘I’m hurt and it was scary and she sent a couple of pictures…”

Shannon asks what she means by “a couple of pictures”, and Meghan shows her a picture of Vicki on a gurney with a neck brace.

Shannon: “Wait a minute. Are you kidding me with this? So here she’s on the gurney and someone snapped a picture of it…and she’s sharing that with you? Really? That’s just strange to me.”

She adds in the B-Roll: “If I’m real injured and I’m in a helicopter, you’re not going to find me taking selfies of myself.”

But can the ladies all make things good again.

This week’s The Real Housewives of New York also see Meghan visit Vick in a bid to make things better between them, and Shannon also tries to fix relations.

Meanwhile, Tamra thinks about delaying her fitness competition.

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Mondays at 9/8c on Bravo.
