From the very start of this season of Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon Beador found herself in a precarious situation. Shannon confided in Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter about their new castmate, Nicole James. Years ago, Nicole tried to sue Terry Dubrow for a boob job gone bad. To Shannon’s surprise, Nicole is now good friends with Terry and wife Heather Dubrow. Shannon was understandably confused and yes, she was gossiping with her castmates. What she didn’t bank on was Gina immediately going to tell Heather what she said. Thus ruining Heather’s sushi party and putting Shannon on the outs with just about everyone.
Now Shannon is dishing about her side of the story. She recently spoke with the outlet Metro.co.uk to discuss how Emily and Gina are out to get her. Said Shannon, “For some reason, Emily and Gina, when you get the two of them together… I believe that Emily is a different person when she’s on her own. But then when she and Gina get together, they back each other no matter what.”
She continued, “I think they have an agenda where they’re going to… They don’t like the fact that I called them untrustworthy. But if you look at my history with Emily and Gina last season, they hear a story and they run and put it on camera. They put a rumor out about my boyfriend that was absolutely unfounded.” Fair enough but if that was the case, why were you telling them information you didn’t want shared?

Shannon, who has been on RHOC since 2014, explained how things used to be. She shared, “Back in the day when I started the show, there was this unwritten code that if there was a rumor circulating out there, you made sure that it was true before you’d ever discussed it on camera… They can be big pot stirrers. I think they’re probably in cahoots, they’re probably going to try and discredit me.”
She added, “They think that I told them about Nicole because I wanted them to discuss it on camera and that was not my intent at all. I was just speculating with them because nothing made sense to me.”
But Shannon does have to take some responsibility, which she is. She admitted, “I’ll take some responsibility but it’s not 100% on me, not at all. I told two people, not the world. Gina did, Gina told the world.” Shannon also acknowledged that it was a “mistake to discuss it with Gina and Emily. But Gina, take responsibility for bringing something up and ruining Heather’s party… Gina’s the one that made it public and brought it up on camera.”
