RHOC-Reunion-Shannon-Beador

As far as Real Housewives divorces go, the split between Shannon Beador and David Beador is one of the longest. And ugliest. Certainly trumping her friend Vicki Gunvalson’s split from Donn Gunvalson. And rivaling the years-long divorce drama of her Real Housewives of Orange County bestie Tamra Judge and ex Simon Barney.

Since filing for divorce in December of 2017, the former couple has been battling it out in court. Over everything from spousal support to custody matters related to their three daughters. There currently seems to be no end in sight to the conclusion of the former couple’s divorce negotiations. And now David claims that Shannon’s income is much higher than his. He is asking to have his support payments lowered.

I am sure that I am not the only Real Housewives of Orange County fan that was disappointed by the nap-inducing Season 13. Come on, Bravo! Let’s up the drama! One thing that has been a constant on the show is Shannon Beador and David Beador’s marital struggles. Oh, and Dr. Moon’s treating Shannon with the weirdest newest homeopathic treatments.

During a previous season, RHOC fans watched Shannon struggle to forgive her husband for his infidelities. They attended a couples’ retreat, where one of the exercises was holding a” fake” funeral for Shannon. That was creepy! Maybe Shannon and frenemy Tamra Judge should hit up that retreat to have a faux funeral for their toxic friendship.

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.

Let’s be honest. The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion episodes have been better than the regular episodes this season. Then again, that’s not saying a lot. The ladies are really bringing it. FINALLY! Let’s hope this continues into Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14.

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!

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!

Shannon Beador

That was the most boring finale of Real Housewives Of Orange County like ever. I’m not kidding when I say I dozed off as Gina Kirschenigiveup was droning on about how she’s just trying to be a ‘good fweind” to Shannon Beador. I didn’t even wake up when she talked about owning boots that magically impregnate people!

Look here’s the thing: at this point trying to center a whole season around whether or not Shannon is nuts is a moot point. It’s like the most rhetorical question ever asked of the Real Housewives universe. It’s such a DUH that it’s like asking a 45-year-old if they believe in Santa. Or if wine should be included in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.

Emily & Gina

On last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County it was a reversal of the status quo. The Tres Amiga’s took their party hats off to stay home in pant hose. Gina Kirschencasita celebrated her 34th birthday with a depressing party filled with tarnished sequins.

Gina is officially moving into the casita when Matt Kirschenheiter visits their kids. This makes it, like, for real you guys. It’s time for her to grow up and, like, look at the like bank statements for the first time in her entire life. Kelly Dodd, Gina’s divorce guru, helps her cart baskets full of HomeGoods throw pillows and cheap blankets to the part-time living arrangement. It’s sort of like moving into a college dorm!
