Shannon Beador is opening up about season 14 of The Real Housewives of Orange County!
Shannon recently told Too Fab that Season 13 to Season 14 is like “night and day, for once!” Shannon is going to be the peace maker this season. Although the OG of the OC, Vicki Gunvalson, is going to be a friend of the wives this season – she’s still an “integral” part of the show. Shannon explained, “Year six, I hope, is gonna be a good one. I know that I had fun. And I don’t know if I was a peace-keeper, I don’t know what you would call me – but I tried to diffuse drama this year because I’m just tired of it. I started to get involved in other people’s drama to try and point out to them that there are other ways to go about life than fighting like this.”
There will be a lot of drama next season on the RHOC. Shannon said, “I mean, there are things here and there that, yes, I am absolutely involved in. But I feel as though that I try and resolve things as quickly as possible and move forward.” Next season Shannon is still getting to know the newbies, Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson. However; all of the rumors that Shannon is not getting along with them aren’t 100% true. Shannon said, “Well, that’s not necessarily true. There’s a couple issues. You’ll see! But the Tres Amigas are doing very well. We keep in touch regularly.”
Shannon said that Vicki is going to be a big part of the show – and that she always will. Shannon shared, “Vicki might not be holding an orange, but she is an integral part of the show, and she always will be. Most of the time when I was filming in a group setting, I was with her, so she is present in the show, and she always will be. There’s not many people that can say, there certainly aren’t many, if any, actors that can say that they were on a successful television show for 14 years, but yet, she can. She’s done something that most haven’t.”
Vicki is engaged to Steve Lodge, and Shannon said he’s a “really good guy.” Shannon and Tamra Judge threw Vicki an engagement party that will air on the season finale.
I’m looking forward to next season of the RHOC! Here we go!
The Real Housewives of Orange County season 14 premieres Tuesday, August 6 at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
