Shannon Beador is defending the OC Housewives’ “social distancing” get-together.
As we’ve previously reported, Bravo officially halted filming for season 15 of the Real Housewives of Orange County back in March however the OC Housewives are finding creative ways to film content while in isolation.
So far, the OC Housewives have been busy filming virtual confessionals inside their homes, but over the weekend they decided to kick things up a notch.
On Sunday, May 3 Shannon, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, Kelly Dodd, and Emily Simpson reunited for some “social distancing” fun at Shannon’s home.
They ladies documented their reunion on social media but not everyone was feeling so good about the OC Housewives being back together.
Fans criticized the ladies for not staying six-feet apart from each other among other things.
“Interesting your mask says 6 ft…yet in your pictures you definitely aren’t 6 ft apart…” one fan wrote on Shannon’s Instagram.
Shannon clapped back “These fabric masks are worn over N95 masks. Unbelievable the criticism. Trying to showcase the generosity of our friend at @goldsheepclothing that is donating and helping to keep the front line healthy across the US!”
Another fan commented, “your friends’ generosity is very much appreciated. What is not understood is that you post yesterday measuring out 6 ft for you all to sit for your “social distancing” gathering, but then take a selfie….You post the photo and people are going to notice and have opinions.”
“Honestly. This is ridiculous. We did social distance without masks. When we got close had the proper mask gear on. Done defending this. I have lung damage. Not going to be stupid…” Shannon replied.
The Real Housewives of Orange County is expected to return to Bravo for season 15 in late 2020.
