As we come up on the season finale of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon Beador declares she is done with Vicki Gunvalson once and for all. The final straw for Shannon was the accusations that Vicki made about husband David Beador beating her – it was one step too far for Shannon.
Shannon says that she was in total shock when the abuse claim was made against David. “I don’t think there are accurate words to describe the absolute shock that went through me when Kelly blurted out the false allegation against my husband. She said it to try and hurt Vicki, without even taking into consideration that this lie is now in the universe and my family will be harmed by it. Clearly Kelly had no concern for my three daughters when spouting out a complete lie, and that is quite evident when she yells out, “How about that?” afterwards. I actually think that repeating a lie is almost as harmful as coming up with the lie itself.”
Shannon, like pretty much all of us, is exhausted over Vicki’s denials and wacky explanations of things. She blogs, “It is insane to me that Vicki tried to come up with a half-assed explanation of why she told Kelly the lie about my husband. Her accusations about David are nothing but false. I absolutely confided in Vicki when we were friendly two years ago but I never, ever said that my husband “beat” me. I would no longer be in my marriage if such a thing were true. What is so devastating to me is that my children adored her and called her “Aunt Vicki”. To make up such a horrible allegation against their father is entirely unfathomable to me. Vicki will hurt anyone, including my children, to promote her deceit. Vicki saying that she “didn’t want to talk about what I was going through last year” is never an excuse for false accusations against others.”
She feels a little bit for Kelly and has been in her shoes. “When you watch what happens on the bus, it is clear that Kelly is hurt by Vicki. I get it. I was in that position a year ago – doing nothing but defending my friend. The same is happening with Kelly. On the Ireland trip, Vicki walked away from any controversial situation and left her good friend Kelly out on her own, just like she has done all year. Vicki continually says “she doesn’t want to get involved,” which is interesting because Vicki had no problem involving us by making numerous negative comments about Kelly that night in the pub before we got on the bus. She is the perfect definition of two-faced.”
Despite the drama, Shannon enjoyed most of the vacation. “The trip to Ireland was actually one of the most fun trips I have ever taken. It shouldn’t surprise me at all the Vicki would be the person responsible for leaving this horrible stain on the good memories. And the fact the Kelly was the one to expose this fabrication isn’t a surprise either. Just another vicious statement from a vicious person.”
Shannon hopes that most people will see that Vicki is a liar and won’t believe the awful things she claims about David. “The indelible problem I am currently facing is that Vicki has put this lie into the universe. Most people will believe the truth, that my husband has not been involved at all with Vicki’s horrendously cruel accusation, because I have only told the truth about our relationship. The bigger issue is that SOME people will actually believe Vicki. NO ONE should buy into the false claims of a person with a history of deception…because it just simply never happened. Vicki has proven time and time again that she has a very loose relationship with the truth.”
Shannon was ill watching the conversation between Kelly and her husband about the bus ride from hell, calling it “more affirmation that Kelly doesn’t care about the damage she may cause to me, my husband, or my children.”
Shannon continues, “I actually feel sorry for Kelly. She stated that she is the only one that has “stook” up for Vicki. She is correct. It is just unfortunate that she doesn’t realize how much Vicki is using her to get back ‘into the good graces of the other women.’ Something Vicki has mentioned often. I was the last new person in the group that Vicki meshed with. I understand where Kelly is coming from. She thought she had a good friend. Kelly is correct— she has done nothing but defend Vicki. But Vicki is delusional saying that she thought we were having a great trip; her closest friend was clearly not having a good time. When Vicki said that she was ‘trying to have (Kelly) fight her own battle and was trying to stay neutral,’ that was another backhanded way of saying ‘I am not your friend.’ It is completely unbelievable to me, nothing but selfish. Vicki didn’t ‘mend fences’. She just proved to us all that she only cares about herself and not her true friends like Kelly.”
She declares that she is done with Vicki. “At this point, my ties to Vicki are severed forever. She made up one of the most unconscionable lies possible about my husband and I still can’t understand how a person can be that evil.”
Tonight is the Real Housewives of Orange County season finale. The ladies gather at Shannon’s to celebrate Tamra Judge‘s victory and to confront Vicki Gunvalson over her harmful accusations.
