With The Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion coming up, the OC ladies are scrambling to clean up their individual messes. They also seem to be taking one last virtual shot at their enemies before that reunion couch footage airs. Shannon Beador is no exception, writing in her blog this week about all of the “rumors” she could have spread about Kelly Dodd (but didn’t). Which means she’s not a bully, at least in her own judgy eyes!
Shannon begins with whining about production having to inviteVicki Gunvalson and Kelly to Tamra Judge’s party. Shannon claims that she and hubby David Beador “didn’t have a choice because we didn’t create the guest list. Vicki and Kelly are responsible for putting a horrible and false allegation out there about my husband. I don’t want to see or talk to either of them… understandably so.”
Apparently rumors that Kelly has a secret boyfriend named Frank have been well-known through the OC, and several cast members heard them prior to filming, during, or after.
“This is like not new news in Newport. I’ve heard it; we’ve all heard it… We’ve been hearing it forever,” declares Tamra. “For me, it’s like a rumor, so none of us brought it up on the show.” (Except Shannon…)
All of these women are ridiculous, in my opinion. I’d call them high school mean girls, but I think seventh grade girls are even meaner. Maybe that’s a better comparison. Each clique is so concerned with accusing the other of same exact things both are doing. I want to scream, “You’re all talking shiz! You’re all horrible friends! You all need a stylist who knows the meaning of the term ‘age appropriate’!” They’d do better just walking around holding a mirror up to one another because they are all the same: gossipy, insecure, hateful, and, of course, constantly the victim. Duh.
Given the contentious nature of this season, it’s only natural that the ladies react just as contentiously in their blogs. Heather Dubrow calls out Meghan Edmonds, Kelly Dodd, and Vicki Gunvalson in her blog this week as the ultimate sh*t-stirrers / backstabbers, and she’s not holding back! Citing Meghan as two-faced, Kelly as a troublemaker, and Vicki as the revenge-seeking “puppet master,” Heather claims that the reunion to come “will not disappoint.”
Production sources attest that Tamra did share the photo with cast and crew, also making a slew of rude comments about Vicki. That in itself is mean, but where it potentially gets illegal is in the hands of a minor! Tamra is also accused of sharing the nude photo with guests at a party and allegedly asking a 15-year-old girl to post it on social media.
Being that it’s Tamra and Kelly, they can’t control their itchy social media fingers anymore than they can control their mouths. Kelly was the WWHL guest after the finale. Several callers lied to get through moderators, then live and on-air accused Kelly of having an affair with “Frank.” Andy was not happy. Following the show, Kelly posted incriminating screenshots showing Tamra communicating with the callers and supporting their efforts.

Tamra, is of course in spin mode, back-pedaling and blaming a rogue Facebook group and insisting she was just as much an innocent victim of their actions. Because she’s a good Christian, it’s never her fault!
Kelly Dodd has had an epiphany – she ain’t gonna make her marriage look bad on TV no more! After calling her husband Michael Hitler and a narcissist, Kelly realized words hurt and she ought to think before she speaks sometimes!
Kelly’s experience on Real Housewives Of Orange County was “[very] therapeutic” and “more of help in our marriage.” She learned the ever-vital communication skills from watching herself act like an a$$ repeatedly.
