Shannon Beador – Tamra’s Lies Are Mind Boggling
Shannon jumps right in. “I asked Tamra whether she relayed any of our confidential conversation to Heather and she denied it. How many times could I ask her? The only other person who could confirm what I already knew was Heather.” She says that she never told Vicki that Heather “told the world.” Heather “discussed my marriage with a table of women which was inappropriate and that is what I told Vicki” Did she really think that these ladies would just repeat exactly what she said? Silly new girl!
“Heather knew that I was coming to her house and any suggestion to the contrary is just another way to “spin” things.” Hmm, that is probably true because Bravo’s cameras were there to capture everything. Shannon says that she apologized repeatedly, but that Heather hasn’t let it go. I must have missed her repeated and heart-felt apologies. “Clearly she has not let it go. It is so interesting to hear Heather and Terry describe the incident and they always say, “When Shannon left our house. . .” I was kicked out.” Oh, stop. You weren’t kicked out, you were asked to leave because the conversation was going nowhere. She also finds it “disturbing” that Tamra hasn’t taken responsibility for starting all of this. Tamra never takes responsibility for anything. She’s starting to turn on Shannon & Shannon better watch out!
“En route to Lizzie’s party, David and I discuss that I am not at excited about seeing the Dubrows. First of all, the last I heard from Heather was a text minutes after I left her house. There was no way I was going to respond to her text after being kicked out of her home.” She says that Heather never apologized for kicking her out. I’d like to see exactly what Heather’s text to Shannon said.
Shannon continues to say that she never yelled at Heather before the party at Lizzie’s. “I didn’t yell at her at Javier’s, never ever raised my voice at the hoedown, and apologized for my raised voice at my Christmas party. I don’t like to be accused of doing things I didn’t do.” Shannon doesn’t really yell, she just gets very worked out & shrill. She also continues to claim that Tamra told both her and David that Terry wanted to take them down. “We didn’t think she was serious at first, but once she mentioned it a couple times, we started to wonder whether it was true. We weren’t going to discuss it with the Dubrows without getting confirmation from Tamra one more time that Terry had said it.” Shannon was frustrated that Tamra denied it. She couldn’t believe that Tamra was lying again. I wish that Vicki had spoken up at the dinner, it would have put lying TammySue in her place. “Two things could have happened — Tamra made it up in the first place (which would make it a lie) or she lied to me and Terry really did make the statement to her. Either way, Tamra is not telling the truth. . .again.” Shannon says that she isn’t lying and that she would have no reason to lie. I completely believe that Tamra told Shannon that, but she was probably lying at the time to stir up drama.
“And then lo and behold Tamra decides to bring up this non-existent statement at the dinner table of all places. It makes no sense. And further, I cannot believe that Terry had the audacity to confront David and I at the dinner table with 12 people. I love that David defended me — so chivalrous and loving.” Tamra knew exactly what she was doing by bringing it up at the dinner table – so inappropriate. Terry also should have let it go until after dinner. Tamra continued to adamantly deny having said that, but Vicki confirmed it. “You see me apologize AGAIN to Heather for raising my voice to her at my Christmas party. Clearly Heather can’t let it go because after the apology at the table, I am attacked for “yelling” once again.” Actually Shannon, you’re the one that brought it up, not Heather. “I am blown away that Tamra thought she could somehow convince my husband that betraying my confidence and telling Heather was somehow in my best interest.” Once Tamra called Heather and Terry into the discussion outside, Shannon was done. “This is not how I communicate or deal with people.” There were way too many people involved at that point. I wish Shannon had just left, instead of flipping out & making herself look crazy.
Finally, Shannon tries to switch to a lighter note by talking about how she doesn’t exercise, but is thin. She and David have been in Hawaii. She wore a bikini for David and someone took hideous pictures, so now Shannon is on a mission to get toned up. I’m betting that she won’t be going to Cut Fitness for that!
Vicki Gunvalson – Vicki is Trying to Stay Neutral
This episode was difficult for Vicki to watch. “Seeing people that I care about be hurt by one another is brutal. I have come to the belief that the TRUTH is the TRUTH. And in one way, shape, or form, the truth will always be revealed.” She begins by telling us that, had she been in Shannon’s position, she would have gone to Heather’s house to get the truth. She didn’t see Shannon yelling at Heather. Granted, I didn’t see Shannon yelling either, but she was stuck on repeat & didn’t come in apologizing as she’s claimed. I would have asked her to leave too. Tamra lied. “Tamra got caught, but I truly think she tried to cover herself because she didn’t want to look like she was gossiping and didn’t want to hurt Shannon by betraying her.” Vicki has Tamra’s number this season.
As for the “take the Beadors down” comment, Vicki doesn’t think that Terry ever said that. She believes that “Tamra made this up for some reason and doesn’t remember saying it to Shannon and I. I have no idea why she would make this up, but it’s either that — or he said it. It can’t be anything else.” Vicki feels bad that the confrontation went down at new girl Lizzie’s dinner party. She also wants to set record straight that Shannon is a “great person” and not psychotic. “She’s passionate about the TRUTH. . .” She’s a little too passionate, if you ask me. I think she got overwhelmed by the tag-teaming of Tamra & Heather. I can’t believe that Shannon really thought joining this cast was a good idea.
Vicki finishes by saying that she is “trying to turn over a new leaf and stay clear and neutral from the drama.” She isn’t an ass-kisser, as alleged by Tamra, “I think what is more appropriate for her to say is that “I’m not a sh– stirrer” the way she is.” I like that she isn’t inserting herself into other people’s fights, like so many of the housewives do.
