As the only remaining OG cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson has seen plenty of Housewives come and go. So if anyone has a lot of experiencing judging new Housewives it’s her.
Gina Kirschenheiter is upset that Shannon Beador does not want to be friends with her. The other new Housewife Emily Simpson’s latest storyline is her desire to have a daughter with her husband Shane Simpson, who does not seem to be on board. At all.
Vicki discussed the last episode in a Bravo blog post. Now that she and Shannon are on good terms since their big hug at last season’s reunion, Vicki jumped to her defense. She wrote, “The topic keeps coming up from Gina that Shannon is being cold to her. I don’t think that is the case at all.”
Vicki theorized, “I think Shannon is a lot like me, where we don’t get super close to new girlfriends right away, and the truth of the matter is Shannon doesn’t have a lot in common with Gina. From what I have seen, Shannon has been nice to her, but they just don’t have a reason to hang out together.” I can think of one reason to hang out together: being cast members on the same reality TV show. Aren’t they contractually obligated to hang out?
So what’s Vicki advice for the brand new Housewife? She said, “I think Gina needs to stop talking about it so much, and just let it be. In time things might change.”
Maybe if Gina gets a second season. Historically speaking, that’s what it takes. Shannon infamously yelled “I start charities, Meghan!” during Meghan Edmonds’ first season on the show. A season later, they were close friends. Shannon and Kelly Dodd argued while wearing seventies-themed outfits and at many other events during Kelly’s first season.
Then Vicki addressed Emily’s desire to add a daughter to her family. She admitted, “The topic of Emily and Shane is getting very uncomfortable regarding her wanting more children. He has made it very clear that he doesn’t want any more and to me that should be enough for her.”
Vicki pointed out, “She keeps talking about Annabelle not having a sister, but she is leaving out that Shane has two daughters, so she DOES have two half sisters. Why does she not bring that up, and why can’t she respect her husband’s decision? Five kids is a lot of responsibility for Shane, and to me he has made it very clear. No more children. Is it me, or is she really not understanding this?” These comments are not going to sit well with Emily, that’s for sure.
TELL US- IS GINA OVERREACTING ABOUT SHANNON? OR IS SHANNON BEING COLD TO GINA? IS IT “UNCOMFORTABLE” WATCHING EMILY & SHANE DISCUSS THE POSSIBILITY OF ADDING A DAUGHTER TO THEIR FAMILY?
