“I was happy Vicki showed up, but a little disappointed she wanted to run out the door and wouldn’t really socialize with anyone. As you witnessed, Meghan even tried to bring Vicki into the group conversation. All the ladies told me they had no intention of bringing up Brooks, everyone was OVER IT! It was Billy (Vicki’s brother) that brought up Brooks, then it became a topic of conversation that got ugly fast,” said Tamra. “I can’t help but think that Vicki put her brother and his girlfriend up it, so they could fight her battles. Kind of like what she did with me by showing me the CT scan.”
As per usual, there are conflicting reports about what the reunion will reveal. Shannon insists we “will see the truth” and “it’s clear as a bell.” However, Vicki says, “They wanted me to admit something that wasn’t the truth and I wasn’t going to. You’ll find out.” Clear as mud, considering Shannon’s truth and Vicki’s truth could NOT be further apart. Look below for a breakdown of the three-part reunion and the much-anticipated sneak peek.
For those of our readers who miss the Real Housewives of New Jersey twins, Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano, I have exciting news. <crickets> Um, at least one of you misses them, right? <tap tap> Is this thing on?
Well, then I have exciting news. 😉 On the latest episode of the twins’ podcast, Girls In Heels, Teresa and Nicole revealed whether or not they plan to return to Real Housewives of New Jersey and dished on a new reality show in the works – they already shot the pilot – that will focus solely on their family.
About Tamra‘s baptism, Shannon said, “I am very proud of Tamra’s decision to get baptized. Tamra and I each went through our own horrendous experiences last year and we both found our way to the Lord to help navigate us through. We both have come out of it stronger than ever, and I feel a special connection with her. Tamra’s speech was incredible; she has an amazing heart.”
Meghan took to her blog to share her “SO many thoughts” about the season finale. “How beautiful was Tamra‘s baptism?” gushed Meghan. “I’m so happy for her and it’s nice to see her at a genuinely happy place in her life. I’m glad that the girls and I were able to go to support her and celebrate with her. It’s just too bad that the night didn’t end as well as it started.” Because, Parties by Bravo.
Shannon Beador lashed out on Facebook last night after Vicki Gunvalson‘s appearance on Watch What Happens Live, warning viewers, “I’m so freaking livid right now I want to start swearing.” Shannon was most upset about Vicki calling her a liar and a TV friend, but she also called out Andy Cohen, who did not put Vicki on the spot and ask her any tough questions.
About the statement Shannon asked Andy to share on WWHL, the emotional Real Housewives of Orange County star said, “I texted a comment to Andy. On the day of the baptism, Vicki didn’t know that I had told Heather and Tamra [about the affair]. She found out after the baptism. The day after the baptism, she called Tamra and said, ‘I was the only one who knew about the infidelity.’ Tamra said, ‘Actually, no. Shannon told us on the last day of filming, before the baptism.’ She can eff off. She’s a freaking liar. She can look right in the camera, and clearly after ten years, thinks that she can say whatever she wants.”
Andy tells Vicki that Shannon Beador is still fired up over Rhonda. Shannon texted to Andy, “I understand the affair was eventually going to be featured on the show, but at the time of the baptism, Vicki thought she was the only one who knew about the devastating and heartbreaking thing that had happened to me. She didn’t know I told Tamra [Judge] and Heather [Dubrow].”
Vicki insists, “That’s not true. Tamra told me she told her.”
