Vicki Gunvalson is still standing firm, declaring that she is not guilty of anything in the whole cancer debacle and she is tired of Shannon Beador indicating otherwise. She took to her Bravo blog to share that she is fed up.
Vicki is now in the stage of her post-breakup process where she’s referring to Brooks Ayers only as “him.” We knew he was the Lord Voldemort of the Real Housewives of Orange County but now he’s truly “he who shall not be named.” She blogs, “When I went to Meghan and Jim’s party, I went in with a thought that if I see Shannon, I will simply remove myself from wherever she was. She has continued to put out to the universe that I am a liar, and I’m fed up with it. Everyone who knows me, knows my heart and knows I would never do anything like Shannon is accusing me of. I didn’t lie about “his” illness and I don’t understand why she is so fixated on this topic.”
Tamra insists she wasn’t instigating with Shannon Beador and Vicki, she wanted them to address things and move on. “I brought up the voicemail to Vicki because she could at least say “thank you” to Shannon and they could move on. After all, Shannon did reach out to see how she was doing and tell her she didn’t understand the severity of the accident. I think it was a big step for Shannon to approach Vicki and to tell her she was sorry. It seemed like Vicki clearly wanted to hold on to the fact Shannon didn’t see her at the hospital. Almost like she had the upper hand now.”
Shannon begins, “I want to be clear. I never expected Vicki to call me or say “thank you” after I left her a message. I did, however, expect a text or some acknowledgment that she received my message. I didn’t call Vicki to “save face” and it certainly wasn’t weeks later either, it was days.”
It’s not like Shannon had an epiphany No, she was just tired of everyone pointing out the obvious: she has unresolved issues with Vicki. Of course Vicki resorted to thinly veiled threats basically forcing Shannon to act like her friend, or else, because the best way to start over is by holding a person hostage by potential secrets. ‘Or else’ what…we’re not sure since Vicki has the ‘or else’ in ‘the vault’ stored alongside the date she realized Brooks was faking cancer.
Vicki gushes over her fabulous life and how she’s persevering after being “knocked down.” She starts off, “As I sit at my desk at Coto Insurance surrounded by stacks of paperwork that you wouldn’t believe, I can’t stop thinking about how fortunate I am of where my life is compared to this same time last year. My insurance agency is growing more than it has ever has, I am in an amazing relationship with my boyfriend Steve, my children and grandchildren are happy and healthy and I have wonderful friends surrounding me. What more could I want. I think every time life knocks you down, it’s a testament on how you recover from it. I think the tough times are definitely needed in our lives, so we appreciate the good times. I was knocked down harder than I have ever been in my life last year, but I know I have grown from it and learned a lot from it as well.”
Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador did not start out too buddy-buddy when they first shared screen time on The Real Housewives of Orange County, but they’ve come a long way since then. Tamra, in fact, seems to be one of Shannon‘s staunchest allies this season, in particular. Maybe Jesus fixed it? Hallelujah!
