Unfortunately for Shannon Beador, this is another Real Housewives of Orange County season when she’s not getting along with the new girl. However, there are two new Housewives this time around- Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter– and they are both at odds with Shannon.
Shannon is all about her post-divorce snapback, her line of food at QVC, and her children. Meanwhile, Emily and Gina are upset that Shannon has no interest in being friends with them. Is Shannon being cold to them? Or are they just forgetting about the drama that Gina brought Shannon into? Is it possible that they’re all right/wrong on some level? Not in Shannon’s eyes. She is adamant that she just doesn’t have the time to acknowledge Gina and Emily- even though that is pretty much what she has to do as a cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County.
Shannon discussed the last RHOC episode in a Bravo blog post. She wrote, “I have heard rumblings that Gina and Emily are saying that I’m not taking the time to get to know them. I have been swamped and don’t have a lot of time.” Sure, she is probably a busy person, but she is literally getting paid to hang out with these women.
Nevertheless, Shannon continued, “That being said, Emily and Gina have not been the friendliest of girls to me. I was falsely accused of talking about Emily’s marriage, which didn’t happen, and Gina basically blamed the Emily/Kelly [Dodd] argument at Eddie’s [Judge] birthday on the fact that I tried to diffuse Kelly’s anger.” Those are valid reasons for Shannon keeping her distance, but some of her closest friends on this show have done WAY worse to her. Should she just give them another chance?
Shannon declared, “No, I am definitely not making time for Emily and Gina when I don’t have much of it.” Then she teased, “Until next week when Emily and Gina continue to get their feathers ruffled…” Well, of course. Shannon vs. the new Housewife has become a go-to storyline at this point and pretty much a guarantee to get a second season. There is no doubt that this will continue during next week’s episode and even a few after that.
TELL US- SHOULD SHANNON GIVE EMILY AND GINA A CHANCE? DO YOU THINK GINA AND EMILY SHOULD COME BACK FOR A SECOND SEASON?
