These first few episodes of the current Real Housewives of Orange County season have been tough for Shannon Beador. From the screaming match at a toddler’s birthday to throwing a plate full of food to struggling with weight loss, Shannon has really been going through it. That’s why it’s the perfect time to get away from life (and the social media haters) and go on vacation.
Shannon, her husband David Beador, and their three daughters are enjoying some family time in Hawaii and documenting some of the key moments on social media.
She starts off her latest blog by pondering Tamra’s issues with deflection and her inability to accept blame. “Watching Tamra talk with her mom about her lacking in communication skills is exactly what I have experienced with her as well. Tamra blaming everyone else and not taking accountability for her own actions is typical. I’m so tired of Tamra constantly talking about how “I ATTACKED HER MARRIAGE”, because she knows it is the farthest thing from the truth. She is focused on this to attempt to get others to be on her side and to take the focus off of her own issues. The fact is the fact. I didn’t attack her marriage – I want her happy. But the truth is, I don’t want to continue to talk about it publicly or privately because I don’t care one way or another. Tamra is the one who keeps bringing it up, not me. I don’t care about it – it’s dead to me.”
Is a Real Housewife even a Real Housewife if she doesn’t slap her name on a million business ventures? Apparently not. Even someone like Vicki Gunvalson who actually has a legitimate and successful insurance business is all about the side businesses.
Vicki has been a full-time cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County for the entire run of the show and she actually does have a real company, so it’s strange that she of all people would delve into all of these random (and usually unsuccessful ventures). From the bacon- flavored vodka, to the failed charity, to the app, and everything in between, none of it really makes any sense. Yet here she is again with another brilliant business proposition.
Anyone who watches Real Housewives of Orange County or follows Tamra Judgeon social media knows that she is very open- especially when it comes to discussing her body and appearance. She has been very forthcoming about everything from getting implants to taking them out to face lifts to fitness and everything in between. Now Tamra is discussing something that is actually pretty scary: skin cancer. Tamra reveals she initially thought that she had a freckle, but she got it checked and it is actually melanoma.
Even though Peggy has zero bonds with anyone in the cast coming into this show, she honestly does have a point about them dwelling on the same issues forever and ever. Then again, she clearly hasn’t seen this show since the crux of Real Housewives is drudging up issues from the past over and over again. Not only that, but it’s just such a dicey situation with tough accusations and Peggy has no idea what she’s talking about since she didn’t know any of these people before joining the cast. She didn’t even watch the show beforehand.
I’m pretty sure that Shannon Beador has said that she’s “done” with Vicki Gunvalson and wants nothing to do with her at least once during every Real Housewives of Orange County episode this season. On one hand, that’s completely understandable given all the shit that’s gone down between them. On the other hand, she could leave the show if she really wants to avoid Vicki.
Fortunately for Shannon, this last episode was way better for her than the first few from this season. Throwing a plate full of food at a restaurant and getting into a screaming match at a toddler’s birthday party were not the best looks for her, so I don’t blame her for chilling out a little bit after all that went down.
Even though it was reported everywhere that Meghan Edmonds would not be returning to Real Housewives of Orange County this season, she is back. She didn’t interact with any other cast members for the first three episodes, but she is back and even she thinks this season is boring.
And that is something most of us can agree on. Minus Shannon Beador’s iconic plate toss, this season has been a total snooze. Hopefully it picks up.
