Tension is in the air in Orange County after a conversation between Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, and Gina Kirschenheiter. During Monday's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Kelly and Gina sat down with Shannon, and during that conversation, it was brought up that there was chatter about Shannon's current state of mind in the wake of the Jamaica trip — and that Tamra Judge had participated in it (clip above).
Gina wrote about that conversation in her cast blog this week: "I was not there for the explosive fight between the women in Jamaica, nor was I there for the convo between Tamra and Shannon when they made up. Tamra did explain that their friendship was on the mend, and I think that’s awesome. I was simply concerned for Shannon. Early that day, Kelly and I visited Vicki at her hotel where she was recovering. Steve was there taking VERY good care of her, attending to all her needs and supporting her through this recovery. When we showed up at Shannon’s, she was completely alone, no friends caring for her, and her girls were out. She couldn’t see well. She seemed in pain and kind of down, and I really just wanted to check in on her to make sure for myself that she was in a good mental place before I left her in what I considered to be kind of a sad situation. I was just letting her know if she didn’t already that her friends were concerned for her and give her some support and love. I wanted to hear for myself that she was ok. My intention was never to throw anyone under the bus. I DIDN’T BRING UP TAMRA’S NAME! KELLY DID. And [honestly], Kelly and I didn’t think it was a big deal because we were not coming from a bad place."
And Tamra also addressed it all on Twitter, writing, "[Shannon] what bulls--t Kelly & Gina just pulled. I did NOT keep talking. We smashed it in Jamaica. Looks like someone is trying to cause problems."
Shannon also seemed to make reference to the gossip on Instagram:
