It was clear from the start that The Real Housewives of Orange County ladies were rearing to go when they kicked off this season's reunion on Monday night. The group didn't hold anything back discussing everything from Vicki Gunvalson's attempt to make amends with the cast to Shannon Beador's disastrous '70s party.
Apparently, we can continue to expect emotions to run high during the rest of the reunion — and not just from the Housewives, either. "Andy [Cohen] screams," Tamra Judge recently teased to E! News about the "epic" reunion. "Just screams on the top of his lungs, like ‘Everybody, shut up!' Multiple times. I've never seen him do that, have you?"
Shannon agreed with Tamra that it was a difficult reunion for everyone from the get-go. "Well, this was only my third reunion, but it just was nasty," she told E! News. "You know, you usually have a kind of easy, breezy beginning to the reunion. And it just—bam! Out of the gate."
It should come as no surprise then that Shannon felt "drained" and "exhausted for, like, a full day" after the reunion. However, Tamra told E! News that she came away from the reunion feeling "good" and "just glad it was over."
Tamra and Shannon's castmate Heather Dubrow previously revealed to E! News that the reunion "is pretty brutal" this season. "I think what's interesting about this reunion is it's interesting to see who can apologize and own their stuff and make amends, and who thinks that they're empirically right and feel that they don't owe anyone anything," she explained.
You'll see what they all mean when Part 2 of the RHOC reunion airs Monday at 8/7c. Catch a sneak peek of the drama to come, below.
