Shannon Beador and Braunwyn Windham-Burke Claim Kelly Dodd Apology Was Phony

Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson used to be friends. At least, friends of the Housewife variety. The Real Housewives of Orange County stars were at odds last season over Vicki introducing her ex Michael Dodd to a new woman after their split. Even worse, they had an ugly dispute at the Season 13 reunion when Vicki insinuated that Kelly was a cocaine user. Funny how that could make someone angry!

Since then, the two have been feuding, often trading barbs on social media. During the cast trip to Arizona, Vicki repeated a story she had allegedly heard about Kelly being banned from her daughter’s school. Kelly, of course, called Vicki out for spreading ugly rumors. Astonishingly, the two apologized to each other at dinner on the final night of the trip. Were the two really ready to repair their broken friendship? Two other RHOC stars think something was amiss with the apology-fest at the Miraval retreat.

Vicki Gunvalson Gives Update On Her Relationship With Ex Donn Gunvalson

The OG of the OC, Vicki Gunvalson, is navigating her way through her first season of being demoted to Friend of status. Coming back for her 14th season must be difficult for the Real Housewives of Orange County cast member, but you have to respect the fact that she didn’t just walk away from the show. Vicki probably didn’t want to give up her status as a reality star, despite the embarrassing demotion.

Viewers have watched Vicki through the years–building her business, raising her children Briana Culberson and Michael Wolfsmith and undergoing numerous cosmetic procedures. Not to mention her shady shenanigans with ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers. Although Vicki is now engaged to Steve Lodge, many viewers have maintained a fondness for her ex Donn Gunvalson. So, where does their relationship stand today?

Vicki Gunvalson Suing Ex-Boyfriend Brooks Ayers For Unpaid Loans & Fraud

Oh this is RICH, pun intended. Remember when Real Housewives of Orange County’s Vicki Gunvalson was hooking up with grifter Brooks Ayers? How could you forget? Their sordid co-dependency cost Vicki friends, damaged her relationship with daughter Briana Culberson and put a huge dent in her reputation. But you know Vicki, she gotta have a man and that DISGUSTING LIAR Brooks guy was one for the record books.

Vicki was single for 5 whole minutes after her association with Brooks McCancerscammer ended when she eventually moved on with Steve Lodge. Apparently, Steve is still hanging in there. Bless his heart. But Bravo is bringing down the hammer and forcing hoping an on-camera engagement will take place to secure Vicki’s continued spot on the show. In the interim, Vicki and her insurance company have recently been accused of defrauding an elderly woman after her spouse passed away. Hello Vicki? Yes, I have Karma on line one for you – and Karma is happy to hold until you take the call…
Now Vicki is on the other side with a lawsuit of her own, and all I can say is – good luck with this one, dear.

The Real Housewives were all about that mother/daughter time this past week. Real Housewives of New Jersey OG Teresa Giudice celebrated her daughter Gia Giudice’s eighteenth birthday! Yes, you read that correctly. Gia Giudice is eighteen years old. How old do you feel now? Personally, I’m feeling ancient right about now.

Meanwhile, Teresa’s costar Danielle Staub went to a play with her daughter Jillian Staub. Additionally, Kyle Richards posed for a mother/daughter photo with Sophia Umansky. Then, Vicki Gunvalson got her daughter Briana Culberson to wear matching pajamas on a cruise.

Then, there were some sweet son photos as well. Bachelor alum Sean Lowe hit the beach with his sons Samuel and Isaiah in Hawaii. Also, Dallas Housewife Stephanie Hollman shared a photo with her. Scott Disick posted a photo cuddling with his youngest son Reign.

In other reality star updates, braces are all the rage these days. Kelly Dodd and her ex Michael Dodd took their daughter Jolie to get braces. Yes, they even marked the occasion with a family photo. Which, is actually pretty sweet. 90 Day Fiance alum Anfisa Nava showed off her new braces.

Stassi Schroeder, Erika Jayne, Kathryn Dennis, and Bethenny Frankel, struck a pose and showed off some chic outfits. Then there are other reality stars who cropped out their outfits and went for the selfies. Luann de Lesseps, D’Andra Simmons, LeeAnne Locken all posted selfies this week.

And of course, as per usual, there were plenty of reality star couple photos on Instagram. Margaret Josephs and husband Joe Benigno went to Miami.  Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss posed for a couples selfie with their men Mike Hill and Todd Tucker.

Shannon and Tamra face off on RHOC reunion

Last night was part three of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion. Which means this bizarre season is finally over. Part 3 was all about Shannon Beador, as pretty much every part of everything is. As Shannon said, “I’m sorry for being me me me me me!”

Is Shannon crazy? Is Shannon an emotional wreck? Are the voices in Shannon’s head actually Tamra Judge reading a script from David Beador‘s iPhone on how to manipulate and condescend Shannon into a meltdown? #yes

But first a Kelly Dodd montage! Kelly is dating, dating, dating and ignoring Jolie who Michael Dodd is dating. But Vicki Gunvalson isn’t! Obviously, she is very invested in what is going on in Michael’s life.

Shannon Beador

Last night was part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion. Shannon Beador found herself behaving like a real-live normal woman for a change.

Part one of the reunion ended with Kelly Dodd screaming into the phone and crying. Part 2 opened with Vicki Gunvalson apologizing for repeating a rumor she heard about Kelly  using cocaine. While that is all nice and good, we know that Vicki’s apology is as sincere as the one Kelly gave for calling Vicki a “pig” and a “fat ass.” Shannon, however, ermerges as the unlikely voice of reason when she points out that the negativity and tit for tat is really hitting too low and isn’t making either woman feel (or look) good. And no amount of plastic surgery erases a bad attitude!

All eyes are on Lisa Vanderpump these days. If you’re searching for her, don’t look anywhere near the Beverly Hills Housewives. She’s not hanging out with any of them these days, but she does spend time with some beloved animals. Recently, she shared a photo of herself holding a giant bunny.

Flipping Out cast member Jenni Pulos posted a photo of herself and her new puppy named Jax. She did not specify if she named him after Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor, but that’s the first “Jax” that popped up in my mind.

Vicki Gunvalson & Shannon Beador RHOC Reunion Part 1

Left to her own devices without editing or intervention Vicki Gunvalson will always shoot herself in the foot, then still try to put on heels and hobble away. Last night’s segment of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion was the perfect example of Vicki at her most Vicki-ness. Reunion part 1 was also way better than anything we’d seen all season.

The most important part of any reunion is to dissect the outfits. First of all, Shannon Beador looks great! I don’t know if it’s the glowy spray tan indicating a break from Dr. Moon‘s holistic practices of wiping Shannon’s entire body in tan resistant mineral powders to ward of surface level UV free radicals, or the 30lb weight loss, or finally shedding her toxic friendship with Tamra Judge, but Shannon looks better than we’ve seen her in years. THIS is the divorced Shannon we were craving all season!
