Cute Is a Four-Letter Word

Heather defends calling Gretchen cute and her acting career.

For the record, I had never seen RHOC till last week! Lots of discussion about this online -- but it's the truth!

Well, overall I thought this episode was very good and very entertaining. The party at Vicki's went better than I had thought it would go. There were a few moments I'd like to comment on. . .

I told Sarah (Gretchen's friend) that her boyfriend needed to essentially "put a ring on it" that was part of a larger conversation. Sarah has a 12-year-old (lovely) son. I feel like she should have gotten a firm commitment (ring) from her (wealthy) boyfriend before she moved into his house with her son. You can't "play house" when there are children involved. That was my point.

Then there was the story of my engagement to my husband. . . well listen, when you are on your way to Paris, you are kind of hoping for the Eiffel tower proposal, not five hours into an 11 hour flight when your makeup has seeped into your skin, your contact lenses are dry, a kid is kicking your seat, and you are watching a bad movie on a tiny screen while drinking from a plastic cup and eating stale snack mix. However, I was thrilled to be marrying Terry. . .and that's the important part of the story. . .

Now, we move on to Gretchen. At the party I called her cute a couple of times. She let Slade know this was not OK, and he thought I was jealous of her. Hmmmm. First of all, I know cute is a four letter word, but when did it become a "FOUR LETTER WORD"!?! Gretchen and I had a few nice moments together when we went to the bathroom (OK, that sounds weird, but you know what I mean) so, when we got back to the table, I was genuinely enjoying her company. Tamra had scared me so badly about all of the ladies before the party, I was relieved that I was getting along with everyone. So I said she was cute! BTW, she is cute. I meant it as a compliment. For the record Sladey-Slade, I had a great time in my 20s and 30s. I'm very excited to be in my 40s and I'm in a great place in my life. I have no desire to go backwards. .  Just saying. . .

The dinner -- well, I thought Vicki did a great job with dinner. She was trying something a little different and fun. I thought some of the girls were rude about the food. My only issue was the presentation. You can't bring out industrial plastic bags to serve crawfish... That was a poor choice . It would have been cooler if they had piled them directly on butcher paper on the table. Just a thought. . .

So Alexis. . .just because I'm not Angelina Jolie doesnt mean I'm not an actress! Jeez! Check if you'd like my credits (which I need to update, but at least you get an idea).

The segment of my family getting ready to go out was so funny to me! Terry is such a goofball! He tells such corny jokes! Such a ham!

Lastly -- and forgive me if this is too immodest -- I love watching my kids on camera. They are the lights of my life and I am blessed to have them. Can't wait to see what next week brings!

Shannon Settles the Score

If Andy's asking "What's the score, Shannon Beador?" Shannon thinks she's definitely won.

This is Blog #20, my last Blog for the season! The past year was been a wild ride for both me and for my family. I have come to many realizations about myself, made lifelong friends, experienced some tough moments, and embarked on a path to a more peaceful self. So to use Andy’s phrase, “What's the score, Shannon Beador?” I would say without a doubt that I have definitely won.

I am happy that the viewers got a little glimpse into my sometimes unconventional ways! For me, it's all about good energy. I love that Vicki’s business has clearly benefited from trying feng shui with Elaine Wright. If you can't get hurt, there is no reason to try anything holistic. If you actually benefit, why wouldn't anyone want to go the natural way? If my children tend to feel better after seeing Dr. Moon and not have to take antibiotics, then I am a happy mom. It's all about creating a healthy balance!

I am an open book and am often criticized for it, but I am who I am. I don't know many couples married for 13 years that have a perfect relationship. Everyone has ups and downs, and although it may be difficult and require effort, it is possible to move through it and make things better. I have said it many times in the season that divorce is not an option. I will always fight for my marriage and my family. It truly touches my heart that so many fans have been and continue to root for David and I. I am so appreciative and grateful for all of your positive comments! Thank you!

Do Tamra and Heather truly want to move forward and potentially develop a friendship with me? Only time will tell. But for now, I have amazing friends surrounding me, including Vicki Gunvalson and Lizzie Rovsek. And most importantly, I have been blessed with the most incredible family anyone could ask for. That is where all of my energy is focused.

I will never forget this entire year, both the good and the bad, because each moment took me on the journey to where I am today. And today, I am in a phenomenal and happy place. Thank you for taking this journey with me!
