Shannon Beador didn’t mean to ruin Brooks Ayers’ birthday dinner. But Vicki Gunvalson was on the war path as soon as Shannon insinuated Vicki’s (now ex) boyfriend’s less than stellar reputation was again under attack. So, ruin it she did. Shannon defends her motives in this week’s Real Housewives of Orange County blog, as well as explains her struggles disciplining her children – and living through Tamra Judge’s booty workout class!
Noting that this week was not her favorite episode, Shannon begins by reflecting on the mangled attempt she and husband David made at disciplining their toilet-papering twins. Upset more about Stella hurting her foot during the TP-ing incident than the incident itself Shannon explains that the twins “have become more defiant and it is completely understandable with what they have been through in the last year. That being said, it was important for David and I to come up with some sort of ‘consequence’…It was David’s idea to write a letter. I thought it was a bit harsh, but went along with it. I was not excited that David reminisced about his prior bouts with pumpkin smashing as a child, but that is the humorous side of my husband.”
Last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County was psychic friends vs. psychotic love! The real question is – is a psychic really qualified to diagnose the validity of your cancer? Also, Shannon Beador pees herself when she runs – time for Lisa Rinna to get the ladies of RHOC a Depends connect.
Let’s just say this was an episode full of mixed messages – starting with Shannon’s parenting. Shannon’s pre-teen twins were caught toilet papering the neighbor’s house and Shannon is using this as an example of how she and David are a unified front. Shannon has NO tolerance for childhood pranks – she whips out her crystallizing zen goggles and attempts to stare her daughters down with the evil eyedometer set on ‘gentle,’ but her kids merely laugh. Shannon’s daughter Adeline calls Shannon out for being no fun unless she’s drunk and Shanon’s face freezes in a shocked expression.
Claiming their trip to Mo’orea was “absolutely the best trip we have taken in 10 years of filming,” Vicki says, “I enjoyed getting away as it had only been four weeks since my mother died, so the timing was good to try and reflect on my life, my future, and what’s truly important. I wrote a lot in my journal and had a lot of quiet time to figure out my ‘new normal’ without my mom. It’s been six months, and although the tears are not as frequent, my heart is very heavy with sadness.”
The couple was constantly defending their relationship–which caused a rift between family and friends–to anyone who would listen. Coming up on this season, Brooks will be accused of faking cancer (not to be confused with the time he was accused of hiring a hit man), although it’s a claim he and Vicki vehemently deny….of course, they also denied engagement rumors. The pair has issued a joint statement on their break-up through their PR representative.

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.
Vicki doesn’t spend a lot of time on social media, but she took a few moments to address questions and comments from followers this week. When a show fan asked Vicki how she could be with Brooks “knowing” that he’s faking cancer, Vicki lashed back. “HE is NOT faking cancer….it’s a fake story that the girls made up. I have lost 3 friends to cancer and my Aunt. It’s a TV show.”
Remember that time the ladies of the OC went on vacation together and it actually ended on a positive? Of course you do…it was this week’s installment! Sure there was drama when the Real Housewives of Orange County invaded Mo’orea, but it didn’t end with a screeching Tamra Judge promising never to return. Hasty words, I guess. Despite the constant tension between Shannon Beador and Meghan Edmonds (or Meghan KING Edmonds, as Shannon calls her…like she’s disciplining a child who has done something bad enough to warrant the dreaded three names), their last supper ended with laughter instead of screaming.
The women had some fun along the way, as well, with Heather Dubrow leading the charge to ignore comfort zones and keep things light. Lizzie Rovsek hasn’t quite recovered from the insanity of last year’s girls’ trip, so she tried to stay in the background and out of the squabbles. She keeps a surprisingly level head when rehashing Sunday’s show.
Gushing about the trip, Meghan shares, “It made me smile to watch these last couple episodes of our trip because of how much fun we all had together. It was an exhausting girls’ trip, but I would go again in a heartbeat! …Especially since I have so much going on right now.”
