Kelly Dodd and her husband, Fox News reporter Rick Leventhal, have contracted Lyme disease, she revealed.
"The Real Housewives of Orange County" star shared the news on her Instagram Story while filming Rick taking medication.
"So, we tested positive for Lyme disease," she said. "I've never had contact with a tick in my life."
Rick, however, said he's battled Lyme several times before, and an antibiotic pill has typically cured him.
It's not known when the couple contracted the tick-born disease, but they were recently in Turks & Caicos for a friend's birthday. That trip made some headlines after a fellow vacationer detailed her alleged experience with the reality TV star.
"I'm doing my Christian service…I'm in Turks and Caicos right no [sic] and I look and see Kelly Dodd laying out right next to me. She was actually super sweet and very hammered lol. My fiance took our pic and said 'we loved when you called that girl's husband a [expletive] dweeb and nerd,'" the fan wrote about the encounter.
The woman claimed Kelly basked in the idea of being in the public eye.
"She also said she finds out next week if she gets a contract for the show," the woman claimed. "Side note, she was laying out watching housewives clips lol! We later saw her at the conch shack and she came up and started chit-chatting. I'm pretty sure she was loving being recognized."
Kelly, though, lashed out at the fan, hitting back at claims she was drunk or loving her celebrity status.
"Hey (the woman) you & your fiance and stepdaughter recognized me & asked for pictures. You were so excited & I was only nice & graciously posed for pics with you all," Kelly wrote in response. "You call yourself a Christian and then come after me on another page with lies & digs? I wasn't drunk & wasn't watching clips of myself. I was scrolling Instagram posts. No good deed goes unpunished."
