Finally we’re seeing some more upbeat scenes on the Real Housewives of Orange County with Shannon Beador, even if those scenes involve squeezing one’s flab and celebrating love with dragon bracelets! This week, Shannon expresses relief that the show is highlighting some of the healing in her marriage, as well as her body.
“I like this episode,” begins Shannon. “Finally you are seeing some fun and positivity!!!” As for her choice to bare it all at the gym, she remarks, “I know, what was I thinking??? I lifted up my shirt and squeezed all the flab on my stomach. I thought that it would motivate me to finally tone up my body and exercise. It has. As most women enter their 50’s, we get a little thicker around the midsection! Today I can say that I am still not the biggest fan of exercise, but I like the results and I am actually becoming stronger and more toned. David is such a workout fanatic so it’s nice that we can do another activity together.”
Last night Shannon Beador andDorinda Medley were guests together on WWHL with Andy. Both ladies got candid about their co-stars and more. Shannon even admitted that ALL of her co-stars knew about David’s affair before she knew!
They start off giving Shannon kudos for being so open and honest about her weight and sharing the number on the scale. She says she lost some weight since filming that.
Last night on Real Housewives Of Orange County reality was a hard-knocks life. Meghan Edmonds cried because being a grownup is really, really, really difficult and she just needs Jimmy to wipe her tears and tell her it will be OK. Unfortunately she can’t find the box of tissues in the moving boxes and she’s pretty sure the movers put them in with her trashcan right next to her self-awareness.
Shannon Beador is on a quest to lose weight; her heavy heart is weighing her down. Despite being 50 she’s never, ever worked out! Shannon visits some trainer/spiritualist who makes her pull up her shirt and then squeezes her chi center, (which if you say that out like sounds like a delicious crispy snack similar to Cheetos!). Shannon isn’t sure what’s making the scale rise and rise (mixing nine lemons with vodka?!) but the likely culprit is emotional baggage.
As a reality TV newbie, Meghan listed “not running into the crew” and “having to wear fake eyelashes” as the only two things that took some getting used to. Otherwise, she was ready and willing to film, “Being on a reality TV show, you have to be okay in front of the cameras, otherwise you don’t have a story. You don’t have a show.”
The discomfort of watching Shannonand David Beador’smarriage crumble on camera during the Real Housewives of Orange Country is off the charts this season (or maybe that’s just me?). This week, Shannon reflects on how tough it is to watch “every single negative moment” she has with David, but reassures viewers that there are good times ahead. She also claims that David is really trying to make their marriage work. Well, I don’t know if the viewers need to be reassured of anything at this point, but let’s dig in to her blog nonetheless!
“What an episode,” begins Shannon. “Such joy and such sorrow all at the same time.” Happy that Tamra Judge visited Vicki Gunvalson before she traveled to her mother’s funeral, Shannon also touches on the “unique relationship” that her own daughter, Stella, has with “Aunt Vicki.” She shares that her girls “of course heard everything that had happened when Vicki was at the bunco party and Stella took my phone and wrote Vicki the sweetest, heartfelt text the next day.”
Tamra is preparing to go to Northern California with her mom to witness her granddaughter’s birth. Sarah, Ryan’s wife, has a scheduled c-section and Tamra is bummed Ryan will be in the delivery room instead of the TAM-MA. After all WHO has more experience with babies?! #Astro.
The whole situation is a bit bittersweet, however, because Vicki is leaving for Chicago for her mother’s funeral and Tamra is sad she won’t be able to attend. Tamra deals with her grief by focusing on how she’ll be the hottest grandma in the OC and that her mom Sandra will be the hottest great-grandma. She instructs Sandra to get a full-body health scan and then have some sex for the other type of full-body scan, so she doesn’t die. Only Tamra would combine sex and death and grandmothers in a heart-to-heart. I’m not sure if that’s a compliment or not…
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
