Shannon is all about her post-divorce snapback, her line of food at QVC, and her children. Meanwhile, Emily and Gina are upset that Shannon has no interest in being friends with them. Is Shannon being cold to them? Or are they just forgetting about the drama that Gina brought Shannon into? Is it possible that they’re all right/wrong on some level? Not in Shannon’s eyes. She is adamant that she just doesn’t have the time to acknowledge Gina and Emily- even though that is pretty much what she has to do as a cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County.
Shannon is so focused on her own personal comeback that she has adopted a “no new friends” attitude. Then again, Shannon has pretty much never got along with new cast members on this show. So it’s just a different season with the same old Shannon in that regard.
The four them used to hang out together and now that David is out of the picture, Tamra has sided with Shannon, of course. Eddie tried his best to maintain a friendship with David, but apparently his efforts did not work. Tamra revealed that David “dumped” Eddie during last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live.
The thing is this is the type of drama that only happens in the alternate reality of reality TV. In the real world if your disparate friends don’t really like each other you’d just hang out with them separately. After all, it’s not like we’re permanently stuck in high school – or Bravoland – together and forced to interact. But in reality TV land three people who have zilch in common must pretend to be part of an established friend group who is now having problems.
The problem here is that Shannon, as she said, is 20 years older than Gina, and they just don’t have a lot in common other than knowing Tamra Judge(and probably secretly hating her) and getting divorced. Except Gina’s divorce is the Unikitty version of a split. It is sparkly blue eyeshadow that leaks tiny droplets of glitter when you cry, and it is platinum fingernails to replace your platinum ring, and it is repurposing all the expensive bikinis you bought for a couples trip by just wearing them on a girl’s trip.
At this point, it seems like Gina Kirschenheiteris having the most amicable divorce in Real Housewives history. She’s completely sure that she’s ready to move on and she and her husband are on great terms. Sure, Matt Kirschenheiterhas never actually appeared on Real Housewives of Orange County, so we don’t know for sure what’s going on with them, but if Gina says its all good and Matt hasn’t said a peep, then it’s safe to assume it’s all good.
There’s just one problem though: Gina’s costars. They are not buying what Gina is selling and they are giving her such a hard time about her decision to divorce, even though they pretty much all just met Gina and they don’t know her husband.
