The veterans and the newbies of The Real Housewives of Orange County don't seem to be getting along, now do they? The ladies experienced one of their biggest clashes so far this season during Monday night's episode.
Things got heated at Vicki Gunvalson and Shannon Beador's birthday golf outing when Emily Simpson confronted Shannon after hearing that she had been speaking poorly about her husband Shane. There ladies couldn't agree on what was actually said and whether Shannon had expressed concern for Emily's marriage because it reminded her of her own tumultuous relationship with estranged husband David Beador.
Shannon took to Twitter Monday night to set the record straight on her comments about Emily at the RHOC crew's happy hour outing in last week's episode. "Never said I was concerned for Emily. Never had an opinion on her marriage," Shannon tweeted, adding "#potstirring."
Shannon said that she thought Gina Kirschenheiter misinformed Emily in her latest blog on Bravotv.com. "I’m not really sure why Gina seems to be putting words into my mouth when telling Emily about our dinner with the group. All I said is that their situation reminded me of something that might have happened in my marriage. I never ever said I was concerned for Emily. In fact, I said that I didn’t want to project my marriage onto her’s. Also, when asked if I thought she was in a bad marriage, my answer was an unequivocal no," she wrote. "I think that Gina should have focused on her issue with Emily and stopped trying to deflect attention onto one simple, harmless statement that I made. I never gave an opinion about Emily’s marriage."
Emily shared in her blog on Bravotv.com that she now better understands what Shannon meant in her comments to the group. "I definitely now see that after I left Tanners, Shannon was simply sharing her own personal experience of her husband and marriage," Emily wrote. "She was sure to make it clear that she was only sharing what she knew of her husband and herself. I can appreciate this."
Emily said it was actually Tamra Judge who seemed to be "initiating the whole conversation about Shane and my marriage at dinner" and "stoking the flames." She also admitted that she had received incorrect information from Gina and that "Shannon NEVER used the word 'concern.'" "However, by this point, my husband and marriage had continued to be a topic with the ladies for far too long, and so when I heard that Shannon and the other ladies were comparing her marriage to mine, it did not sit well with me. It didn’t help that up until this point Shannon had only shared with me the terrible things about her marriage," Emily wrote in her blog. "Unfortunately, I incorrectly made the leap in my mind that she felt I suffered 'abuse' in my marriage - a connection I shouldn’t have made, and a word I wish I didn’t later accuse her of using. For that, I’m sorry Shannon."
There's more drama with Emily's husband on the way in an all-new episode of RHOC Monday at 9/8c. See what we mean, below.
