One of the most talked about scenes from this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County is when Heather Dubrow kicked Shannon Beador out of her home. The incident is a hot topic among the ladies, especially to Shannon who seems to bring it up every chance she gets.
In her Bravo TV blog this week, Heather admits that she did owe Shannon an apology, but says she doesn’t think Lizzie’s party was an appropriate place to do so. She also calls out Tamra for getting a free pass from Shannon and thinks that Shannon should be angry at Tamra instead.
Sorry I’ve been MIA! I had an epidural to relieve the pain from my sciatica (I get one every year or so …), and this time had a little complication. They poked a hole, and I ended up spilling spinal fluid into the epidural space for five days. Anyone that’s ever had this will know it’s a headache of epic proportions. Finally, I went back in, and they fixed it with a blood patch the day before we shot the Reunion! Ugh! I felt like I had been hit by a bus! I kept thinking, “Why couldn’t I get Botox and filler before the Reunion like a normal Housewife?!?”
Anyway, glad to have it behind me. . .and the Reunion behind me for that matter. I think you will all agree it’s a great end to a great season!
Since this has been a long season and so much was covered at the Reunion last week, I’m going to make just a few comments about tonight’s episode. . .
Dinner party at Lizzie’s part 2: If Shannon was looking for an apology from me, why at a dinner party? Why start the party with “do the Dubrows want to take us down”? Why not talk to me privately before the party? I ran into Shannon at the hairdresser a couple of hours before the party and we made polite conversation. I was sort of hoping we could have a nice time at Lizzie’s party, put some distance between our troubles and THEN talk.
Having said that, I did owe her an apology. But that doesn’t mean EVERYTHING is my fault. It seems every time Shannon has a reason to be mad at Tamra, she gets a pass and it gets deflected to me. I did realize that I haven’t been able to let it go with Shannon, because I felt at this time that she was hurting my friendship with Tamra.
When Shannon stormed out of Lizzie’s party she was obviously upset. I didn’t go outside to see what was going on because clearly I was part of the problem and didn’t want to make it worse.
I asked if we should call an ambulance because as the other women came back in the house they were talking about Shannon as if she was having a mental breakdown. After watching the footage, this clearly wasn’t the case.
I thought it was gutsy of Shannon to come back in the house and say goodbye. Not many people would have done that.
Anyway, next week there are many laughs (thank goodness) and a bit if a twist in relationships. Hope you enjoy it!
Until then. . .

I pretty much agree with everything Heather says in her blog this week, and I’m glad she owns up to the fact that she needed to apologize to Shannon for what happened. Do you think Heather and Shannon will ever be friends?
