During Monday’s episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County Tamra called out Shannon for being a “Debbie downer” during their group trip to Jamaica.
“Shannon and I go through what I like to call a little tough love … Because she was really stuck in a place and she just needed to snap out of it,” Tamra told Us Weekly. “I feel like she was just not moving forward. She was just always the Debbie Downer. Everywhere we went, she was very, ‘David did this and this happened and this happened.’ We’re on vacation, just have fun! We want you to have fun!”
Over the last year, Shannon’s life has been in a tailspin after her husband, David Beador, ended their 17-year marriage.
Currently, Shannon and David’s divorce drama is playing out on season 13 of RHOC.
And while Tamra has sympathy for Shannon, she feels she needs to move forward and not dwell in the past.
“She was just having a hard time and I get it, but sometimes you know what? You just gotta force yourself to move forward,” Tamra explained. “I think I kind of kicked her in the butt.”
On Monday’s episode, Tamra encouraged Shannon to change her negative attitude.
“I love Shannon to death, but the constant negativity and the constant dwelling on things that really don’t matter is tiresome to me,” Tamra said in her confessional. “I can’t take this anymore. I’m like your punching bag, and it’s not happening this time.”
In fact, Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, and Kelly Dodd are worried that Shannon’s divorce may have sent her into a depression.
