How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

The topic arises in the above sneak peek while Shannon is mid-conversation with her three daughters, 22-year-old Sophie Beador and 19-year-old twins, Stella and Adeline Beador.

Speaking specifically to Stella — who's preparing to head back to school — Shannon begins to tear up. "I took Sophie to college, I took Adeline to college, and your dad took you, so it was my intent to come and visit you," she explains. "But because of my mistakes, I wasn't able to come. And I feel bad."

"I'm so sorry and humiliated that I disappointed you," a teary-eyed Shannon continues. "What kind of example am I at 59?"
