Shannon Beador wants us all to know, again, that she will never forgive Vicki Gunvalson! And after seeing Vicki mock her on this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County, Shannon is “Done!” She’s “F–king DONE!” OK, just kidding – she’s actually still not done talking about Vicki, but she is opening a restaurant.
“One of my least favorite parts of the show is watching back what other people say about you,” shares Shannon, who failed Reality TV 101. “It can get quite frustrating and hurtful when people don’t accurately describe your intentions and say cruel things.”
What Shannon means is that it can be quite frustrating being forced to associate with
psychos The Vicktims and The Kelly Dodds of the world. Shannon’s advice to Vicki is that she “should practice what she preaches” and be the obsequious one, instead of demanding that Tamra and Shannon did something “unforgivable” to her.
“To hear Vicki say that she has been such a good friend is laughable to me. She says she is going to ‘punish’ Tamra and I for not being her friend? There’s only one bully in this group and she certainly started our ‘punishment’ last year as she tried to destroy families,” seethes Shannon. “Mission accomplished, Vicki. Keep it up.”
“And then to hear Vicki and Kelly whispering and mocking my weight gain… I know they have never gained substantial weight ever in their lives,” Shannon continues. “Glad they got a laugh. Nothing but cruel.”
NOT to defend Vicki, but I don’t know if she was mocking Shannon’s weight necessarily, but probably shocked by the weight gain considering that they hadn’t seen each other in months. Then Shannon was wearing a giant kaftan, which made her look larger that she is.
“It’s funny to hear Vicki talk about Tamra ‘throwing grenades and then walking away and everyone needing to be OK with it.'” Shannon writes in her blog. “No, actually that’s what Vicki does over and over again. The end of last season is proof of it.”
Likewise, Kelly is also wrong – Shannon totally takes ownership, guys! Like how many times has she admitted to regrettable behavior? Or that The Quiet Woman display was an embarrassing debacle? Kelly on the other hand, according to Shannon – ownership?! Never!
“Kelly seems to get the wrong take on things quite often,” continues Shannon. “Watching her speak with Vicki and recount her meeting with Tamra and I was frustrating. I never said Vicki was responsible for weight gain. This story is getting old. And then here we go again with Vicki and her lies. She has proof of nothing. But she does have a long history of lying and is clearly not stopping it any time soon.”
“I definitely think Kelly came to the Quiet Woman to stir things up,” Shannon adds, “but I would like to forge ahead, so I don’t plan to discuss it with her anymore.” (Filed Under: “I Don’t Believe You…”)
Shannon also takes issue with Lydia McLaughlin continuing to insist she had good intentions. “The bottom line is Lydia knew we all didn’t get along and had no right to invite or try to include Kelly in a dinner that Tamra and I invited her to. Seems like Lydia and Kelly are trying to spin a different story so that they seem innocent with only good intentions. I don’t think they did a successful job.”
Shannon claims that the Sip-N-See “reaffirmed that I have finally reached a place where Vicki’s presence doesn’t mean anything to me. Asking for one cocktail when everyone else had been drinking all afternoon and when the event was over has absolutely nothing to do with seeing Vicki. Not sure why anything is being made of it.” AKA why Tamra made an insinuation that Shannon was drinking to deal with Vicki?
Anyway, in other Shannon news, she’s decided to funnel her love of food into opening a restaurant. “I’m actually opening up a restaurant…” she told Bravo’s Daily Dish podcast. “You’ll see that on the show this season. It hasn’t opened up yet but my logo is nine lemons – ’cause that’s me!” Oh silly me – I would’ve thought the theme would be Sour Grapes…
TELL US – DO YOU THINK VICKI WAS MOCKING SHANNON’S WEIGHT? WOULD YOU EAT AT SHANNON’S RESTAURANT?
