shannon and david beador at rhoc reunion

It’s been a rough season for Shannon Beador as both her marriage and her sanity were questioned and inspected on Real Housewives Of Orange County

While many of her castmates rallied around her in support, Heather Dubrow as not one of them. After a testy reunion where both Heather and her husband Terry continued to complain about Shannon and her marriage continued to be under strain, Shannon is fighting back. First, she posted a photo of her in bed with David to quiet down all those divorce rumors being spread by naysayers.

“‘We’re Good!’…See?!” Shannon wrote

One situation Shannon isn’t putting to bed is the drama with Heather. In fact, for her, the reunion made it all the more apparent that this isn’t ending anytime soon. 

Heather apologized to me numerous times in this episode, which might give for hope for a future relationship with her. The problem I have is that the apologies came with a ‘but’ or some sort of excuse attached to it,” Shannon laments. “Heather said that she felt ‘picked on’ by Vicki and Tamra to explain some of her behavior towards me. If she felt ‘isolated from everyone,’ why didn’t she take the advice that she has repeated multiple times this season and “go to the source”? I never heard the theory of being ‘ridiculous, sensitive, and prickly’ when I had a sit down meeting with Heather to clear the air.”

Shannon believes that Heather’s tension with Vicki and Tamra made Heather so insure she intentionally created drama with Shannon. “I believe that Heather had some sort of agenda with me,” Shannon explains. “On multiple occasions, she constantly repeated the same term to ‘describe’ my character –‘scary angry’ and ‘yelling’ at the forefront.”

“And now, six months after Heather’s repeated belief that I ‘yelled’ at her at my Christmas party, she confirms that I did NOT yell and that it was a ‘misfortunate choice of words’ (a ‘misfortunate choice of words’ that was used over and over again. . .),” Shannon adds. “It is bizarre to me that Heather believes she can deliver what I consider to be a qualified apology and expect instantaneous forgiveness. I just wanted a moment to process and understand it all. I wish it had been that easy for me when I apologized to her continuously throughout the season. Double standard.”

“One of my buttons this season has been Heather attempting to downgrade that she ‘kicked me out of her house’ by saying that she ‘asked me to leave.’ She herself said at Lizzie’s party that she ‘kicked me out’ of her house. Enough,” Shannon states.

As for Terry Dubrow‘s aggressive anger towards David, Shannon really doesn’t understand. “Terry’s comments in the Reunion completely threw me for a loop,” Shannon says. “He heard minutes earlier that David and I resolved our “email” issue less than 24 hours after I received it, yet he chose to make the insensitive comment that it was ‘odd’ that I would show up at his house when I should be at home discussing my marriage with my husband. David and I were in a good place and had resolved everything when I went to their house. I came to speak to Heather for one reason — to confirm that Tamra had betrayed me because the ‘source’ denied that she had.”

“But the biggest surprise to me in the entire episode was Terry’s inability to take responsibility for his inappropriate statements and behavior at Vicki’s party. He called my husband stupid, demeaned his profession, and coined him a ‘penis,'” Shannon reminds us. “Terry attempted to explain it all away, but his excuses make no sense and it didn’t work. And to somehow give Eddie a pass for his comment about Heather ‘riding Terry’ is beyond ridiculous. Once again, if the Dubrows had practiced what they preach and contacted David about his ‘spread the legs’ comment, Terry would have instantly received an apology from my husband and not have ‘lost two months of sleep.'”

Finally, Shannon tackles the drama with Tamra Barney. “Tamra was absolutely a ‘pot stirrer’ this season,” Shannon states. “She went back and forth between Heather and I at many different points. It doesn’t matter what excuse Tamra gives for going to Heather with information about David’s email, I do not believe that she betrayed my trust because she was looking out for my best interest. It was never in my best interest for Heather to know anything about the short argument I had with my husband or the email that he sent me.”

I am tired of Tamra insinuating that I am a ‘liar’, ‘crazy,’ and have a ‘drinking problem.’ I don’t use alcohol as an excuse for forgetting things this season — but Tamra has on more than one occasion,” Shannon insists. “Tamra insinuates that I am ‘crazy’ because I had one outburst at Lizzie’s party, yet Tamra can scream over and over again. And what is truly troublesome to me is that she swears on her children that she never said Terry wanted to ‘take the Beadors down’ when Vicki confirmed that she actually did say it.” 

Shannon says that overall while it was a difficult season, she has no retreats. And I guess she’s ready to come back next year. I personally enjoyed Shannon’s contribution because she seemed authentic and honest about her situation, albeit a lot loopy and a little drunk! Hopefully she won’t change.
