RHOC: Kelly Dodd and Gretchen Rossi Agree With Jeff Lewis That Bravo Set Up Shannon Beador To Fail on S18


Former Bravolebs Kelly Dodd, Gretchen Rossi, and Jeff Lewis believe the network set up Shannon Beador to fail while filming season 18 of RHOC.

On Tuesday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, guest Jeff Lewis admitted that he “feels” for his longtime friend Shannon Beador ahead of season 18 of the Real Housewives of Orange County.

“Shannon, this season, has a lot coming at her. I will say, watching Shannon activated though, it’s fascinating on television,” Andy Cohen noted.

“There’s no better TV than when Shannon is activated. That’s true,” Jeff Lewis agreed.

However, the former Flipping Out star added: “I feel for her. I just didn’t like that you took away all her allies. You know what I’m saying? She went in with the wolves.”

Jeff called the whole situation “terrible” and said that Bravo “set her up.”

While Andy attempted to defend himself and Bravo by noting that Shannon and Tamra Judge were allies before filming for season 18 of RHOC began, Jeff criticized him for removing Vicki Gunvalson and Taylor Armstrong from the season 18 cast.

“I would make Vicki a full-time cast member. I’d bring Taylor back as a friend, and I may bring [Gretchen Rossi] back as a friend,” he argued.

After Jeff’s comments spread around Bravoverse, two former Real Housewives of Orange County stars couldn’t help but agree with him.

Gretchen Rossi said she “100% Agreed” with Jeff’s take that Bravo sabotaged Shannon while filming season 18.

Kelly Dodd then entered the chat in response to Gretchen’s comment.

“@gretchenrossi, I wish you were there to go after TamRat,” Kelly wrote.

Season 18 of The Real Housewives of Orange County premieres on Bravo Thursday, July 11, at 9 p.m. ET.
