The Catalyst

Heather explains how this party leads to a lot of this season's drama and explains her outfit (once again).

This is an interesting episode. This is the catalyst for the rest of the season. Having said that. . .

My lunch with Tamra -- I love seeing our friendship blossom at this lunch. We have become friends, and I'm glad she trusted me with important conversations about her relationship and moving in with Eddie. The Bunco party sounded fun!


Alexis, huh. That plastic surgery consult was weird. Why is she so freaked out? Last week she said "I have the knowledge" about surgery. She WORKS for this Dr as a surgery consultant. . . It's just all a little odd. Even the doctor said, "My god girl, you're just having a nose job!"

I loved getting my outfit together for Bunco! Being the only brunette I thought it would be so fun to be a "Robert Palmer" girl! No one seemed to remember those videos at the party. . .but I liked my costume! Big thank you to my AMAZING assistant Natalie for helping me pull the look together! I would be lost without her !

The Bunco Party! I thought everyone looked great! Such creative costumes! (Even if I did have to explain mine a few times.) I thought the game was fun and going well -- till Tamra's friend Ricky mixed it up with the conversation about the improv. Mixing alcohol in an already combustible situation. . .NOT SMART.

The guys! OMG!!! The guys looked amazing!!! I can't believe they were willing to dress up!!! Terry was hilarious! For those of you who don't know, my husband's late brother was Kevin Dubrow, lead singer of Quiet Riot. Terry looked just like him at the Bunco party in his wig and crazy pants!

There is a lot of drama brewing at the party. Next week is going to be crazy. . .Stay tuned!

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!
