No matter how you feel about Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd, you have to admit that the drama at the ’70s party seems very suspicious. I’m not saying that Shannon threw a themed event with the sole intention of exposing Kelly, but I find it very hard to believe Shannon had “no idea” her ratchet friends knew Kelly. Please. Shannon has hated Kelly from the start, so I’m sure she was complaining about her to someone and figured out those two annoying women hated Kelly as well.
I don’t think the whole situation was elaborately planned to discredit Kelly, but at the very least, it definitely seems like Shannon encouraged the gossip and shit stirring. And in a #TotalHousewifeMove, Kelly is determined to prove that.
So I’m not at all surprised that she tried to skew that whole fall out with David Beador at the 70’s party in a way that makes it seem like she was innocently attacked. Sure, Tamra Judge believed her when Vicki shared her side of the story during the next episode, but there’s no way that she could get away with that considering that the cameras were rolling.
The discord between Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd went from zero to one hundred – real quick. Right off the bat these two did not get along and there was really no real reason for it. That initial tension escalated into some insanely sketchy shit: i.e. Shannon’s out of control ’70s themed party.
It’s still up for debate whether or not Shannon ambushed Kelly when her rude friends took digs at Kelly and her marriage. It looks super shady in all honesty. I don’t believe for one second that Shannon had no idea that those women knew Kelly, but it’s hard for me to figure out if that whole interaction was premeditated or not. And Shannon and Kelly have very different views of their history.
The show begins with a lot of banter between Heather and her assistant Natalie. While I think they’re cute together, I’m getting to the meat and potatoes (two things Heather probably doesn’t eat!) to focus on their discussion of Real Housewives of Orange County because the podcast is almost 90 minutes.
Heather warns there are no “bridge episodes” this season and it’s a nonstop whirlwind. “Something happens every week of this entire season – it was nuts.”
Kelly and Shannon‘s lunch on last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County was so beyond awkward – and I still don’t know what to think about that party. It seems like such a weird coincidence that two people who couldn’t stand Kelly were more than ready to start shit with her at Shannon‘s party. Was it a set up?
Yeah, I don’t care how much Kelly Dodd annoys the bejesus out of me (and probably Tamra Judge‘s sculpted patootie), Shannon Beador set her up at her 70’s partaaay. Which was not necessarily OK. And it was, well, ugly. Honestly, I think most of us, the Real Housewives Of Orange County ladies included, are gonna pretend Shannon is innocent on the principal of their dislike for Kelly, but the double-teaming of Jaci and Nina, three boobs, and a bull dozer, are all too coincidental.
And you know what they say: If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck – it’s probably a Real Housewife training for a fitness competition and practicing in her lucite stripper heels!
Andy points out that he saw Gage’s assistant Matt in an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians. Is he now Kris Jenner‘s assistant? Jenni confirms, “You heard it here first. Matt no longer works for Jeff Lewis. Stay tuned, see how it unfolds in season 9.” Andy says “another one bites the dust. How many freaking people has Jeff fired?” Jenni says, “it’s a bit of a revolving door but there are some people that stick around.”
Love her or hate her, you have to admit that Tamra was meant to be on reality TV. This woman always has an interesting story line going on and she has a keen sense of knowing which Housewife to turn against at the right time. She has had so many highs and lows in front of cameras, so it’s got to be hard for her to pick a favorite moment on the show.
