Shannon Beador Says Heather Dubrow “Comes After” Her This Season; Denies Kelly Dodd’s Claim That She’s “Afraid” Of Heather

All kinds of mess was started at Chateau Dubrow on The Real Housewives of Orange County after Gina Kirschenheiter spilled the tea with Heather Dubrow that Shannon Beador had been talking about a lawsuit involving Heather’s husband, Dr. Terry Dubrow and housewives newcomer, Nicole James.

“If you ever come after me or my family ever again,” the Dr. and Mrs. Guinea Pig author chastised Shannon, “you are going to lose a lot more than just my friendship. This will cost a lot. And I’m not saying this as a threat. I’m saying this as a promise.”

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Shannon shared her thoughts about what she felt about Fancy Pants’ wrath. “I was absolutely floored, I really was… She did threaten me. And accusing me of going after her family, taking it to that next level, for the things that she said to me, going through my head was, ‘Are you gonna kill me?!’ Shannon revealed, “watching the show is always the hardest thing, because I know what I filmed. I just don’t know what other people are saying behind my back. So, it’s always difficult to watch those things and, yeah, there are some things that are being said about me that are upsetting.”

Gina explained away that she had to tell Heather because at one point in her life, she was at a barbecue and everyone was whispering about her husband “having an affair, and I can relate to her.” Shannon did not buy Gina’s excuses: “[Gina] even said on Watch What Happens Live, she said to Andy [Cohen], ‘You can thank me now, Andy!’ She had a big smile on her face.”

Shannon shared that it is difficult for her to watch the show, saying, “I just don’t know what other people are saying behind my back… There are some things that are being said about me that are upsetting.” Despite all of the drama, Shannon’s friendship with Heather and Gina is “cordial”. “We all get along. I’m not in a major argument with anyone today.”

However, Shannon also warned that Heather will come for her later in the season when Heather does something Shannon doesn’t actually agree with: “I’m not gonna lie, she comes after me this season that she doesn’t come after other people for, and I fight back when that happens.” Shannon continues to convince herself, “I’m not afraid of her. My very first season, I had issues with both she and Tamra [Judge] as a first-season Housewife. That was pretty, pretty difficult, but I did it. I handled it. I’m not afraid of her. Or of anyone.”

That directly goes against a comment Shannon’s friend, neighbor and former co-star, Kelly Dodd, recently made on her podcast, Rick & Kelly UNMASKED. “She’s afraid of her!” Kelly asserted on a recent episode. “She doesn’t have her real friends to back her up. So she has to kiss [Heather’s] a**.”

Shannon let Kelly know that being afraid of Heather certainly “isn’t [her] f*cking plate”. “That bothers me that she says that about me, and I haven’t had a discussion with her about it yet. No, I’m not afraid of her at all. Not at all. I do feel badly about what happened, that that information from 20 years ago got out there,” in vindication against Kelly’s comments.

I mean, personally I would not like it. I could see myself being mad at Shannon too, but I would definitely be mad at Nicole first. What Nicole did was creepy, but no more than the Dubrows eerily laughing it all off. But Heather has to forgive Nicole to prevent the actual surgery and what happened from her comeback season’s storyline, so she disproportionately placed all the anger on Shannon if you ask me.
