Shannon Beador ‘Has Enough Allies’ To Stick Around on RHOC if Alexis Bellino Returns

Oop, sounds like Shannon Beador might see blood in the waters of Real Housewives of Orange County and she’s trying to get ahead of it. According to Radar, if alum Alexis Bellino makes a return, she’s ready and waiting.

Challenge accepted! Where is Andy Cohen to make a comment when you need him? Season 18 of RHOC will most likely be all about Shannon. Last September she was involved in a hit-and-run DUI and was arrested after blowing over three times the legal limit.

She’s had to partake in alcohol counseling, obviously. Shannon is also on probation and was forced to pay a small fine in court. Lately, her ex John Janssen has been snuggling up with Alexis and it’s throwing Shan into a tailspin.

Please give Alexis an orange immediately!

Insiders are saying no cast decisions have been made regarding Season 18. So I guess there’s hope Emily Simpson either becomes interesting or finds another job. But Alexis canoodling with John is certainly giving people something to talk about.

Amid a break-up with her man and annoying Shannon because she exists in this world, Alexis and John were photographed together at seemingly the only eating establishment in Orange County, The Quiet Woman. Shannon has made it clear the photos didn’t please her one bit.

Despite Alexis’ new villain era, Shannon won’t fly into a rage or start screaming, “You’ll all see the TRUTH” if Lex gets thrown an orange. Allegedly.

The source added, ”We are still aways away [from casting].” Apparently, Shannon also feels she has enough allies on the show to keep her from dealing with Alexis. Who are these allies and are they in the room with us right now?

Another person said, “I think she has enough allies on that show. Especially if they bring Vicki [Gunvalson] back.” They might also be at risk of losing a large group of viewers who no longer wish to see Vicki whooping it up. Then again, Vicki basically threatened Bravo at BravoCon and said she wanted to come back full-time or nothing.

Newport Beach streets are saying John and Alexis are getting pretty friendly and staying in touch. This could get interesting.

Real Housewives of Orange County Season 18 will return in 2024.
