Is it just me, or does Heather Dubrow‘s return to Real Housewives of Orange County make you nostalgic for the RHOC of yore? While I love me some Fancy Pants, I actually find myself missing the Tres Amigas antics of Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, and Shannon Beador. Which is a sentence I never thought I’d write. But it’s true.
Don’t get me wrong, Shannon‘s doing her best to carry on solo. She ambushed Heather and Terry Dubrow at their welcome back party, with the knowledge of Nicole James‘s lawsuit. Albeit she got Gina Kirschenhieter and Emily Simpson to do her dirty work for her. Girl’s slightly salty that Heather’s chosen Gina to be her number 1 gal-pal this go-round. Although I should think Shannon should just be thankful she’s not the work-in progress that is the marriage of Dr. Jen Armstrong and Ryne Holliday. No messy dinner parties for you!

While we’ve still got Shannon, and she’s definitely stirring the pot from left to right, it’s still not the same. I don’t think we’ve seen a tabletop dance thus far this season. Gasp. We did however have a naked Noella Bergener in the pool though, so that feels familiar.
And let’s be real. Tamra takes any opportunity to make herself relevant in any way she can. Most usually making digs via her podcast with Teddy Mellencamp, under the guise of ‘girl-talk.’ She thinks Heather talks to much about money, Gina and Emily are obnoxious, and called Noella the village idiot. Can’t say she’s 100 percent wrong here, but still.
Shannon was recently on Watch What Happens Live to chat with Andy Cohen about RHOC. And a fan wrote in to get her opinion on Tamra. Most specifically about Tamra claiming Shannon dropped her as soon as she was fired from the show.
The viewer queried, “Tamra said after she left OC you stopped contacting her. Is that true? And do you have regrets with your friendship and things that happened?” Andy hadn’t even finished asking the questions, when Shannon started mouthing, “NO.”
After Andy was done, Shannon answered, “It is not true, and I have text messages to show that. I just choose not to engage in the public. I absolutely was there.” And that my friends is the end of that. That is, of course, until Tammy Sue decides to clap back with a retort of her own.
TELL US- DO YOU THINK SHANNON STOPPED TALKING TO TAMRA? DO YOU MISS THE TRES AMIGAS? ANY CHANCE TAMRA AND/OR VICKI WILL COME BACK TO FILM NEXT SEASON?
