Things get insanely scary on the upcoming episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, as the girls have a scary close call while hitting the sand dunes in a Polaris RZR side-by-side.
In case you’re not familiar with the Polaris RZR, it’s a side-by-side ATV, and the girls, with plenty of money to spare on renting one, decided to strap themselves into the highest powered 4-seating option available: The Polaris RZR 1000.
Below is a picture of what a Polaris RZR 1000 4-seater looks like, just for reference:
As you can see, these things are built to take on some serious conditions, and also hit some very serious speeds.
As Tamra straps herself in the driver’s seat, with Heather Dubrow taking on the role of her front-seat passenger, Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson climb into the back of the four-seater.
That’s when Tamra’s brother, Kenny, warns the ladies before venturing out that they need to keep their limbs inside of the vehicle at all times, in case they would flip it:
If this thing goes over, the last thing you want to do is stick your hand out.
This bit of advice definitely freaked Heather out, as she responded:
What do you mean if it goes over? Don’t say that.
Unfortunately, this was some sound advice, as that’s exactly what ended up happening.
So, the ladies set out on an epic rollercoaster-like ride through the desert. The girls can’t contain their excitement as the wind whips them in the face, along with some sand, and their screams fill the air in excitement.
Things take a terrible turn right after Tamra says that she’s getting scared, and then you see the ATV flip, as Kelly’s helmet flies off of her head, and the camera cuts to a deafening silence.
Luckily, the girls didn’t appear to be terribly hurt, as the roll bars protected them from severe harm, but it was still scary, and Vicki and Tamra suffered concussions.
This is what Dodd had to say about the whole incident:
I still have nightmares today thinking about what happened. Vicki had a concussion, so did Tamra. It was just a really, really bad accident.
