This photo is about the only time I remember Shannon Beador smiling on last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live. She was a guest, along with Odd Mom Out’sAbby Elliot, and seemed to be in a very serious mood. It could just be me, but she didn’t seem to be having any fun. Nonetheless, she answered a lot of questions aboutVicki Gunvalson, Kelly Dodd, and talked about her daughter’s cringe-worthy questions to David.
On Vicki jumping in the car and calling Brooks Ayers after David screamed at her during the 70’s party, Shannon says, “I think that she misses him and I think it was an excuse to call him.”
I feel like there should be some sort of Real Kids spin off show within the Real Housewives franchise, because it seems like a lot of them have inherited a penchant from drama from their reality TV mothers and there others who have taken things even further with legal troubles and other controversies.
The Real Housewives kids have caused a lot of trouble over the years…from DUIs to public hair pulling to domestic violence accusations. There have been plenty of headlines about these reality star kids – thanks to their mothers’ fame – throughout the years.
Jeff Lewis andHeather Dubrow both have enormous egos and always have to be right, so, naturally they don’t like each other. Now that the two started arguing over who more rude and obnoxious (a toss-up?!), they just can’t quit! Interestingly, they share mutual friends in Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador. Oh dear – that makes for awkward future get togethers (roll the cameras!).
Once again, this is another Real Housewives of Orange County season that isn’t look so good for Vicki Gunvalson. Obviously no one is over that whole cancer scam from last year and Shannon Beador is the one really leading the charge. Personally, I think the cast members and the fans would be able to forgive Vicki if she just took responsibility for her actions and stopped changing her story to play up the victim persona.
Everyone has been blinded by love and I don’t think Vicki is an awful person, but her inconsistencies are way too much for Shannon and the rest of the cast. So, when the ladies say something that’s objectively offensive about Vicki, you know the OG of the OC will be ready to pounce so she can successfully defend herself (for once). It’s definitely a good way to get people to stop talking about Brooks Ayers– at least for a minute.
If you’ll recall, Kelly came on the show as a friend of Meghan Edmonds, but that’s not the way Kelly acted during the latest episode. Now Kelly is defending Vicki (yet again- yawn) and clarifying the insults she threw at Meghan.
“What is up with Kelly Dodd?” – me, every single time I watch Real Housewives of Orange County. I am all for giving people the benefit of the doubt and evaluating people based on your own experiences with them, but I don’t get why Kelly thinks she can have an opinion on the Vicki Gunvalson madness from last year when she wasn’t even in this friend group then.
Kelly came on the show as a friend of Meghan King Edmonds and I keep forgetting that since she is so attached to Vicki. The latest episode was also pretty perplexing when Meghan tried give her some advice about Vicki and Kelly reacted so rudely about it. As of now, no one on this show (except for Vicki) is friendly with Kelly, so maybe Kelly should have taken on her advice and things would be going better for her.
Thankfully, Heather did not dissect Vicki’s non-pology to Shannon Beador, or anymore about Brooks. Just my two cents before we dive in: I don’t think Shannon should forgive Vicki – of all the women who Vicki betrayed with Brooks’ scam, Shannon was hit the hardest (on top of David’s affair), and truly was a friend to Vicki. I want to stop discussing Brooks, but it seems the scab just continues to fester amongst the cast and they aren’t ready to move on from what happened.
