Vicki Gunvalson dropped a bombshell earlier this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County when she claimed that David Beador's mother had wished he had stayed with his mistress and that they used to have family dinners together.
Shannon Beador addressed those rumors when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live Monday night (clip above). "No," she responded to one viewer's question. "[Vicki] says she has proved this, that, and the other, no. Never happened. David's mother never met her."
Vicki brought up this rumor on RHOC earlier this season when Shannon got into a heap of drama with her mother-in-law after she told Tamra Judge and Kelly Dodd that she believed Shannon had "pushed" her son David to have an affair. Shannon previously explained to The Daily Dish why her mother-in-law's comments upset her so much that night. "It has nothing to do with the affair. It has to do with the fact that no matter how hard I try, my husband's family doesn't give two hoots about me. And it hurts," Shannon said. "And especially for her to go down and say that one gut-wrenching comment that I drove my husband to an affair, nobody drives anybody to an affair. I didn't make my husband do anything; he did it. So for his mother [to say that] when I've continually made efforts, it's hard."
During that interview last month, Shannon was not so optimistic about being able to reconcile with her in-laws. "It's a shame, because I have no cousins, both my parents were an only child, and I wanted to have that big family. So I love the holidays and having everybody come over," she said. "I don't know if it's gonna happen this year. I mean, it's not gonna happen this year. I'm not gonna keep throwing myself in the lions' den. I'm kind of over it."
