Shannon Beador Real Housewives Of Orange County Season 14 Premiere

The Real Housewives of Orange County cast has come under fire for their comments and behaviors during the coronavirus pandemic. Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and Kelly Dodd all hung out in close proximity for a selfie, which sparked outrage among the fans. And David Beador’s fiancée and mother of his future child Lesley Cook shaded Shannon for this gathering. And, let’s not forget the many times that Kelly has made ignorant comments about coronavirus.

Previously demoted and eventually fired Housewife Vicki Gunvalson slammed the California governor for refusing to open up nail salons when she wanted to get a manicure. At the very beginning of the stay-at-home orders, Tamra Judge caught flack for keeping her gym open. And, most recently, the cast traveled to film a trip, which also incited criticism. And now, Shannon has revealed that she and all three of her daughters have tested positive for the coronavirus. Presumably, Shannon was not on the Real Housewives of Orange County cast trip.

Shannon Beador

Are the cameras rolling for an upcoming season of Real Housewives of Orange County? I’m going to need some reaction scenes with Shannon Beador after she found out that her cheating ex-husband David Beador has a baby on the way with his fiancée, Lesley Cook.

Yes, Shannon is in another relationship and she seems pretty happy with her new boo, but this is Shannon after all, a woman who is famous for her “Are you kidding me?”-filled freak out sessions.

Braunwyn Windham Burke Emily Simpson Shannon Beador Kelly Dodd coronavirus

Some of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast members caused some controversy when they posted photos hanging out during the coronavirus pandemic in the midst of  a stay-at-home order in California. Yes, they wore face masks, covering their mouths and noses. Yes, they seemingly had less than ten people with them. But, nevertheless, a lot of people were outraged when they reunited and took a selfie, mere inches from each other’s faces.

This was probably the one time Gina Kirschenheiter was actually happy to be excluded. Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and Emily Simpson were present for the coronavirus gathering. Even recently fired Real Housewives of Orange County alum Tamra Judge commented with a face palm emoji.  She’s not the only one throwing some shade though.

Vicki Gunvalson And Tamra Judge’s Previous Contracts Prevent Them From Appearing On Other Shows For One Year

In the cast shakeup heard around the world–OK–in Housewife Land–the departures of OG Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge from the Real Housewives of Orange County were recently announced. After Vicki’s demotion to Friend of last season, her exit was not a total shock. Tamra’s departure was a little more surprising. Housewife OG’s and long-time cast members are probably shaking in their Louboutins–if they are smart and their reality egos allow for reflections on their Housewife status.

Vicki went out relatively classy–thanking her fans for their support. Tamra took her leave when she was only offered three episodes to wrap up her storyline. Then she appeared to unfollow her former co-stars on Instagram. Who could blame her? Being shown the door has to sting. If all that wasn’t enough, both Vicki and Tamra have more fallout to deal with from their lives as former Housewives–besides tarnished reputations, that is.

David Beador Lesley Cook engagement

First comes nude hiking photos and then comes marriage. While that’s not a conventional saying by any means, Shannon Beador’s ex-husband David Beador popped the question and is now engaged to Lesley Cook, his costar in that infamous nude photoshoot.

I wonder if Shannon’s reaction to this news was filmed for Real Housewives of Orange County Season 15.

Braunwyn Windham-Burke Real Housewives Of Orange County

Finally we have reached the end of the line with Real Housewives Of Orange County. It has been a long and confusing season of many Housewives I do not particularly like. Tamra Judge, I am looking at you. Furthermore I am so thankful I will no longer have to type Brauwnyn Windham-Burke‘s exhausting name, as exhausting as the woman herself, every week. Ugh.

Among the many revelations from part 3 of the reunion, we learned that skanky behavior has always been a cornerstone of the show’s foundation and Andy Cohen will not have you argue it any other way. Boobs out, girls!

We open with Vicki Gunvalson accusing Braunwyn of violating the show’s moral compass, causing Vicki to lose 2 clients. I’m sorry, so dating cancer scamming Brooks Ayers meets Vici’s clients “moral compass”? Andy reminds Vicki that she has flashed her tits at the dinner table, given fake blow jobs (in addition to plenty of low blows) and participated in the Naked Wasted episode with Gretchen Rossi, so why the revisionist history??

Kelly Dodd Real Housewives Of Orange County

OK, so once again rolling in super tardy with a recap. This time for part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion. Sorry Vicki Gunvalson – I respect Christmas more than I respect you!

Legit question, though: Vicki wasn’t even a ‘Housewife’ this season, yet she is the star of this reunion? There she is, sitting in the supremo spot next to Andy Cohen, and at this point 3/4 of the reunion has been dedicated to dissecting Vicki’s antics and her fights on the show.

Part 2 was all about Vicki’s failed friendship with Kelly Dodd, and once again they promised to bury the hatchet in each other’s backs. First, though, they rehash the train rumor, the cocaine allegation, the throw mama down the stairs off a train tale, the broken hand in a bar con-woman catfight… You know, all the classics!

Shannon Beador Shades Kelly Dodd Over Her Engagement To Rick Leventhal

It’s hard to believe we are at the end of season 14 of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Some highlights of the season for me were getting to know Emily Simpson a little better and Gina Kirschenheiter chasing after a dramatic Tamra Judge in the finale. Plus Kelly Dodd taking no prisoners on the cast trip to Key West–and on Part 1 of the reunion. And dare I say, Vicki Gunvalson’s demotion?

Lowlights include Tamra and Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s make out session, Dr. Deb’s tough love maternal instincts and some of the Tres Amigas’ escapades. Kelly and the Amigas were at odds most of the season over everything from Shannon Beador’s Miraval retreat gonging to the ugly rumors spread about Kelly. Over-the-top retaliation by Kelly, including inserting herself in the Jim Bellino lawsuit fueled the feud. Will the Amigas and Kelly ever find their way back to each other? Shannon recently made it clear that she and Kelly are still on the outs.
