Season 12 of the Real Housewives of Orange County was a shitshow especially for Shannon Beador, who dealt with gaining 40-pounds, a crumbling marriage, and a whole lot of friendship issues.
During a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, reflected on season 12 and talked about her fresh start in life.
Shannon, who announced her and David’s separation at the season 12 reunion, opened up more about their split telling Andy, “When we filmed the reunion, we had been separated for five weeks. There was a part of me that thought finally getting out there would be a sense of relief, but in actuality, it made it official and it made it real. I’ve been having good days and bad days.”
Adding, “Last week I saw he took his wedding ring off and that’s inevitable, but it’s just making the adjustment.”
However, Shannon refused to end the conversation on a bad note telling Andy, “No more downer tonight. It’s all good. This had to happen. Good times are ahead.”
Unfortunately, Shannon can’t move forward just yet because of the upcoming reunion where all the drama of season 12 will be rehashed.
Speaking of rehashing drama, Shannon admits that some of the comments made by her bestie Tamra this season really affected her.
“Yes, my feelings were hurt a few times. I did have talks with her about it. You guys see little clips of things here and there. She tells me what really happened,” Shannon explains.
Yet Shannon takes part of the blame; owning her bad behavior this season, and admitting, “I know that I was so volatile this season that she was kind of afraid and walked on eggshells a little bit around me.”
While Shannon is able to forgive Tamra, one person she can’t forgive is Vicki. Shannon made it clear that she never believed Vicki’s apology in Iceland was the real deal, saying “I think if you really wanted to make an apology, you would do it off camera. You wouldn’t do it after two cocktails. You wouldn’t do it when Tamra is whispering in your ear ‘apologize now.’ It wasn’t very sincere.”
To wrap up the evening, a fan asked Shannon to “name three people that you’re not ‘done’ with from this season.”
“I’ll say Tamra Judge,” Shannon responded. Also adding, “I’ll say, Kelly Dodd. At this point, there’s not many others. I can’t do that.”
Thoughts on Shannon’s interview? Do you think Shannon is new and improved? Was Shannon volatile during season 12? Will we see a new Shannon during season 13? Do you think Vicki’s apology in Iceland was sincere?
