Watch What Happens Live - Season 12

Shannon Beador begins this week’s blog with a similar sentiment she seems to express weekly: discomfort. But this time the discomfort is not from watching her marriage crumble on TV; it’s from dealing with the sketchy Brooks Ayers situation the Real Housewives of Orange County has unfortunately made its central storyline this season. Shannon shares, “This episode is heart pounding and uncomfortable for me to watch. So much information keeps coming up and I don’t like the position I am in.”

Shannon claims she was taken aback by the lengths Meghan Edmonds will go to in order to “get to the bottom” of Brooks‘ story.  She confesses, “Dinner with Heather [Dubrow] and Meghan was shocking. The speculation and conversations about Brooks’ illness are not stopping and the women continue to ask me why Brooks has not seen one of the world-renowned doctors I referred to him. I don’t have the answer to that question. It is quite clear that Meghan wants to get to the bottom of things. I would never pick up a phone and pretend that I was sick to get information. She will clearly do whatever it takes to try and gather information.”

Although she loved her Aries party – complete with pool-dragon! – Shannon admits she was “apprehensive when getting ready for the party.” She continues, “I don’t like to continually be put in the position where negative things are being said to me about my friend. Telling Vicki [Gunvalson] about it blew up in my face at Brooks‘ birthday dinner, so I am not going to let that happen again. I don’t want to doubt her or Brooks because I would never want to be doubted by one of my friends.”

Grateful for Meghan’s “very kindhearted gift,” Shannon still doesn’t trust Mrs. Edmonds’ motives in digging for dirt, especially in going so far as to contact Brooks‘ ex-girlfriend for inside information. She claims, “I was again floored by the information delivered by Meghan that she had contacted one of Brooks’ ex-girlfriends who apparently alleged that Brooks had faked cancer in the past. She is definitely on a mission to get to the truth. And then to hear that Brooks found out about Meghan’s plan. I know they cannot be happy about it.” 

“I understand why Brooks and Vicki are upset that Meghan reached out to one of Brooks’ ex-girlfriends,” offers Shannon. “I also understand why Meghan is upset that a statement was made about her marriage. I’m not sure why Brooks said ‘consider the source’ when Vicki was the person that told Tamra [Judge]. And I understand why Tamra would be upset that her credibility was questioned. It is just a big mess.” Yes, it is a big mess. But that’s why we watch, I guess! 

Shannon closes her blog by clearing up the matter of Vicki “asking” her for help with Brooks finding a reputable doctor versus Shannon “offering.” She claims, “I would have done the research for Brooks’ illness whether asked or not. Vicki did ask me for my help, though, on the same day that she found out about his diagnosis.” Well, that clears things up! (Kinda.)
