Now that we’re heading into the home stretch of this season’s Real Housewives of Orange County, it’s apparently not all Aries parties and Woo-Hoo-ing for (former?) besties Shannon Beador and Vicki Gunvalson. Though she stayed loyal to Vicki and her many delusions aboutBrooks Ayers despite the ladies’ growing skepticism of Brooks’ cancer status, Shannon revealed her own skepticism this week’s episode. Which has led to a more serious rift in their friendship since then, says Shannon.
Shannon argues that she was “loyal to a T” when it came to defending Vicki all season on RHOC. But she told E! News in an interview this week, “When you’re my friend, you’re my friend for life. It’s just that there were so many different, inconsistent stories.”
Heather took to her blog to explain why she talked to Vicki Gunvalson about the speculation surrounding Brooks‘ cancer, “I felt obligated to pull Vicki aside and discuss my feelings about what was going on with Brooks. There is a lot more to this part of the story and it will come out, so you will have to stay tuned to watch this unfold. What I can say is that I didn’t want to be involved in Brooks’ health issues, real or not. However, it was Brooks himself that pulled me into it! You will have to wait and find out how that happened.”
Back at Shannon’s Aries party, Tamra Judge is spitting mad that Vicki is allowing Brooks to call her a liar and a backstabber. The unladylike doth protests too much!
Tamra believes Vicki is so influenced by Brooks (and his lies) she may be turning into Brooks! Shannon is hard-pressed to believe that the never, ever dim-witted Vicki could be bamboozled by a con man, so possibly, just possibly, she knows Brooks is faking cancer but is going along with it. Even Tamra can’t believe that – or at least that’s what Tamra is telling the cameras because the only time Tamra has Vicki’s back is when she’s stabbing it!
Shannon Beador begins this week’s blog with a similar sentiment she seems to express weekly: discomfort. But this time the discomfort is not from watching her marriage crumble on TV; it’s from dealing with the sketchy Brooks Ayers situation the Real Housewives of Orange County has unfortunately made its central storyline this season. Shannon shares, “This episode is heart pounding and uncomfortable for me to watch. So much information keeps coming up and I don’t like the position I am in.”
Shannon claims she was taken aback by the lengths Meghan Edmonds will go to in order to “get to the bottom” of Brooks‘ story. She confesses, “Dinner with Heather [Dubrow] and Meghan was shocking. The speculation and conversations about Brooks’ illness are not stopping and the women continue to ask me why Brooks has not seen one of the world-renowned doctors I referred to him. I don’t have the answer to that question. It is quite clear that Meghan wants to get to the bottom of things. I would never pick up a phone and pretend that I was sick to get information. She will clearly do whatever it takes to try and gather information.”
Confusing times on Real Housewives Of Orange County!Brooks makes me suspicious, yet Meghan Edmonds makes me equally suspicious. Whose motive is weirder?! I love a mystery – Veronica Mars is my favorite show, but Meghan makes amateur private investigators everywhere look psycho.
Brooks Ayers is a professional liar, smooth as snake oil and slathering it on Vicki Gunvalson as the serum of youth. Meghan is a two-bit phony, but she has two luxuries: Time and Vendetta (and internet access). This will not end well.
Things begin with Meghan meeting Heather Dubrow and Shannon for dinner. Everyone gets along now because Shannon saw the light that Meghan is always right (AKA, get along well enough to talk ish about Vicki).
Brooks Ayers, the Housewife that never was (but oh, he might as well be!) continues to find himself the main focus as the ladies attempt to decipher: Does her or Doesn’t he? Have cancer, that is! Meghan King Edmonds has appointed herself the cancer crusader (can she get a superhero cape to go with that?) and is determined to fight for justice by exposing Brooks as lying about cancer. Or at the very least withholding the facts.
Our favorite reality TV stars, like Chelsea Houska, Melissa Gorga, and Leah Remini, love to show off their adorable kids and family photos on social media. Here’s our pick for the sweetest photos from the past few weeks.

“Watching Jimmy and I eat dinner alone at our house was relaxing to see,” said Meghan. “We rarely do that. We travel so much so we either eat on the go or go out and catch up with friends. I think the dinner date at home alone with your spouse is underrated – we need to do more of that!
