Real Housewives of Orange County

Shannon Beador in Jamaica

All season I’ve been thinking Real Housewives Of Orange County was boring, or not boring per se, but just… not living up to its potential. An under-achiever, even though the abilities were there. In short, these ladies were lacking in motivation, but then came Jamaica which turned out to be RHOC’s version of The Shining. These images will haunt your dreams, which is perfect for Halloween.

I am beginning to think Kelly Dodd is right about lots of things though. And that truly is a scary place to find yourself in, but Shannon Beador needs help. Is she really calling Kelly and Tamra Judge “all hours day and night” to cry and bemoan how hard it is to make kids’ lunches while also paying the water bill? Is this really going on!? Has Dr. Moon not drained Shannon’s lymphatic sad artery and given her cupping full of good vibes? Or maybe that’s what the vodka was for? Regardless, she’s been behaving this way since her first season on this show, divorce or no, and it’s time to do some soul-searching and re-evaluating. 

Shannon in Jamaica

Even though the first episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast trip in Jamaica was a total bore, tonight’s episode just might make up for that thanks to Shannon Beador.

For the past few episodes, new Housewives Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter have been complaining that Shannon has no interest in being their friend. Episodes before that, Tamra Judge called out her bestie Shannon for being self-involved and not supporting her enough while her husband Eddie Judge endured health problems. During the first episode of the Jamaica trip, Tamra even told Emily and Gina that her husband feels she “enables” Shannon and that she “feels sorry for her.” Apparently that talk was enough ammunition for Gina who earns her orange for next season comes after Shannon during tonight’s episode.

No one can deny that Shannon Beador is going through a lot these days with her tumultuous divorce. Nevertheless, it’s not as if she signed on for another Real Housewives of Orange County season against her will. She agreed to be on this show, and part of that should include interacting with all the cast members.

Shannon has made it clear that she has zero interest in Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter. Say what you want about the two new Housewives, but this just isn’t a good look for Shannon. Can’t she just give them a chance- on camera- and then decide that she wants nothing to do with them? Plus she’s giving them a storyline since they’re both complaining about how she won’t be friends with them in pretty much every episode.

Emily Simpson defends her marriage

The Real Housewives of Orange County cast trip in Jamaica looks like it’s going to heat up next episode with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador screaming at each other. The first episode was pretty boring. Nothing really happened, other than the Housewives growing tired of Shannon’s “me me me” antics.

Shannon refused to room with Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter– right in front of them. Her close friend Tamra Judge even admitted that she “feels sorry for” Shannon and that her husband thinks she enables Shannon in a conversation with Emily and Gina on the beach.

Is it even Fall if you don’t pose for a photo in a pumpkin patch or an apple orchard? Your friends and family members are posting these stereotypical traditional Autumn photos and so are your favorite reality TV stars.

Real Housewives of Orange County alum Meghan Edmonds took her three babies to the pumpkin patch with their cousins. Dallas Housewife Stephanie Hollman and her two sons looked for the biggest pumpkin in the patch.

Tamra complains about Shannon

Let’s be honest: the first episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast trip in Jamaica has been a total snoozefest. Thankfully, the previews for the next episode looks explosive with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador screaming at each other.

Nevertheless, the last episode did serve its purpose. The tension between Tamra and Shannon is downright palpable. Tamra was miffed when Shannon decided to partner up with Vicki Gunvalson for an activity instead of her. Later, Tamra suggested getting into the water so Shannon could cool off and Shannon just stormed off to the van to sit in the air conditioning. Nothing about either of those scenarios is interesting on its own, but it’s setting the stage for next episode’s scream fest.

One episode in and the Real Housewives of Orange County cast trip to Jamaica is far from exciting, but there is definitely some tension building up. Shannon Beador outright refused to cohabitate with the new Housewives Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter. She also has some weird tension with bestie Tamra Judge, which was ignited when she chose to partner with Vicki Gunvalson for an activity and not Tamra. Then Shannon stormed out to “cool off” in the air-conditioned van. Projecting much?

Meanwhile, Kelly Dodd is just there for comic relief, while she copes with a rash. Next week’s episode looks a lot more interesting with Shannon and Tamra getting into a screaming match.

Kelly meets Shannon for lunch

For Kelly Dodd’s first two seasons on Real Housewives of Orange County, she was essentially Vicki Gunvalson’s sole supporter. Now that Vicki is on good terms with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador again, she’s all “Kelly who?” She completely broke girl code by setting up Kelly’s super recent ex Michael Dodd with another woman and going on double dates with the two of them and her boyfriend Steve Lodge.

On top of that, she kept the whole thing a secret, and had zero remorse for being shady. Now this whole thing has snowballed and the former close friends are not even on speaking terms these days.
