Though The Real Housewives of Orange County never disappoints in the drama department, the ladies are really kicking it up a notch this season.

“We’ve had some intense drama,” new cast member Kelly Dodd tells PEOPLE Now interview. “We get into a very bad car accident. Heather [Dubrow], Vicki [Gunvalson] and Tamra [Judge] – the four of us roll over an ATV, and two of our costars get seriously, seriously hurt.”

Dodd says that some injuries were so bad that not only were her costars hospitalized, they were also medically evacuated from the scene.

“I still have nightmares today thinking about what happened,” Dodd admits. “Vicki had a concussion, so did Tamra. It was just a really, really bad accident.”

The new Housewife also teases the rest of the “roller coaster” season, adding that they “had some tense drama in Ireland.”

Aside from the medical emergency, Dodd also opens up about the explosive ’70s party fellow Housewife Shannon Beador threw that created multiple confrontations.

After an exclusive clip from the fallout shows Dodd trying to make amends with Beador, the new girl on the RHOC block defends her actions that night.

“At the time, I felt like she was nasty and ugly. I didn’t mean she was ugly on the outside, I wasn’t talking about her personal appearance,” Dodd says. “I meant like inside – she was acting ugly.”

And although Beador isn’t as receptive, she is open to someday being friends.

“I’m trying to hug it out with her!” Dodd says. “I’m trying to make amends, I’m trying to make peace but on her side, not so much.”

But the drama isn’t stopping Dodd from wanting to come back!

As to whether she’ll return for another season once this once warps, Dodd says, “I hope so! I enjoyed it – it was a great experience.”
