The newbie begins her Bravo blog, "I have to say that when I started filming RHOC I knew it was not going to be 'the Shannon Beador show' — that I was going to be shown in both positive and negative lights. I also understood that despite multiple hours of filming, there would only be a few moments shown on the screen. Everyone in our family tends to joke with each other, but often times on film it doesn't appear very funny. And now for week two, I find that some of my not-so-proudest moments have been chosen to air."
So! Shannon Beador. Oh my. On one note she's sort of quirky weird, she's also sort of crazy insane, but at the very least she's very real. She just puts it alllll out there. Whew.
Last night on Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon's marital implosion continued. This lady's love tank is filled with cruelty-free diamonds, and non-toxic particalizied air mixed with lavender scented essential oils but not love.
Things begin in Hawaii where Tamra Barney is trying to be a good friend to Vicki Gunvalson. You can see Tamra struggling, reading the cliffnotes she wrote on her hand about how to be empathetic and encouraging. These human emotion thingies are foreign concepts. Heather Dubrow is nodding and smiling, shooting Tamra reassuring looks that she's being OK. Remember it's like acting, you have to get into character she had coached her before this dinner while Vicki was examining seashells up the beach.
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 daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week! Enjoy!
So what is it like to join one of the most successful of the Housewives franchises? Radar Online sat down with Shannon Beador to find out about her eccentric beliefs and the ups and downs of filming with veteran Vicki Gunvalson, Heather "Fancy Pants" Dubrow and feisty Tamra Barney.
TamraBarney Judge and Eddie are working hard at CUT Fitness and after 8 months in business are breaking even. Good for them! She compares the venture to having a newborn and then mentions that Eddie is five-years-younger than her and the deep sexy voice (debatable) he uses to teach classes gets all the ladies' revved up. It makes Tamra jealous – and insecure about her age. Tamra says she's doing everything she can to look younger. We can tell….
The OGs of the Real Housewives line-up are back next week. The Real Housewives of Orange County has had many ups and downs, but last season the ladies thusly represented on the drama front and brought in big ratings!
Everyone's relationships were thrown in a blender as friendships fractured and reconnected. Tamretchen fell apart (like no one saw that coming) and Tamricki was restored to their rightful order as queen bitches. Businesses were opened, weddings were planned, the Dubrow marriage was strained, and Lauri Peterson staged a dramatic comeback!
The topsy-turvy season began with a brought back from the dead Alexis Bellino who had to go on Xanax to deal with Tamra Barney. Yes, she was so desperate to famewhore she needed psych drugs. While Alexis focused on relevance and opening a tramboppily boob-bouncing for Jesus trampoline park, Tamra opened C.U.T Fitness.
Part of last season's Real Housewives of Orange County storyline for Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson revolved around their wine club "Wines by Wives". Bravo is playing a marathon of reruns today and it must have sparked some conversation about the company because Vicki shared this afternoon that she's no longer a part of it. And was shocked to find her photos on the site.
If you'll recall, Vicki and Tamraargued last season about who wasn't pulling their weight with the company (which launched in May 2012). Vicki posted to Facebook this afternoon, "Wines by Wives customers: Some time ago Vicki ended her affiliation with WbW — and was surprised her image/presence was still on their site. Vicki was shocked/dismayed to hear followers were having trouble with their orders. Vicki reached out directly to the owner of WbW and asked for immediate resolution. Thanks to all of you who brought this to our attention. -The Vicki Team-"
If you go to the WbW site, they have several photos of Vicki, but they have removed her from the "who do you want to drink with" page. Still featured? Kathy Wakile, Tamra Barney, Adriana de Moura and others.
Season 9 kicks off April 14th. Friendships are put to the test, says Bravo, when the "quirky yet fearless" Shannon Beador and "opinionated beauty queen" Lizzie Rovsek blast onto the scene with fresh attitudes and bold opinions. The line for the Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, and Heather Dubrow pity party forms to the right, my friends. See ya on the left – I'm excited for new blood.
