Shannon's first meeting with Lydia in Monday night's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County had been going well enough (we mean, Lydia's mom even told her she had "a bright light") — that was until the subject of Vicki Gunvalson came up. Lydia said Shannon and Tamra Judge were acting similarly to how Vicki had been behaving toward them, which eventually led to Shannon storming off.
Both Shannon and Tamra tweeted during the episode that they had asked Lydia to stop talking about Vicki. Shannon even thought Lydia might have been doing some "#potstirring."
Meghan King Edmonds didn't witness Shannon and Lydia's showdown in person, but watching it back on TV, even she couldn't wrap her head around the situation. "I don’t understand what Lydia is doing by talking to Shannon about Vicki," she tweeted. "They just met!"
Meghan went on to tweet that it seemed like Lydia was "trying to make things worse" and that "Shannon should have just walked away," and Shannon agreed. "You are correct. But as weird as it may sound, I thought that would be rude," she tweeted to Meghan in response. "Just thought we were going to have a nice family afternoon."
Lydia admitted that it would have been better for her to have a head's up about Shannon's personality this season of RHOC. "I did not watch the last season, which I think probably would have been wise, because I would have understood even Shannon better, had I known her personality," Lydia said on Monday night's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen when asked if she watched Season 11. "So that probably would have been smart, but I didn't do that."
