After Show: Nene & Reza Squash Their Beef

The Real Housewives of Orange County always have a way of breaking up and making up like no one else. We mean, how could you not shed a tear when Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, and Shannon Beador finally hugged it out and seemed to move past their issues during last season's reunion?

Kelly explained during the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen After Show Wednesday that they've grown closer as they both go through the experience of divorce (clip above). "Well, Shannon and I are really, really close. We've really bonded. We talk about the same things, we're having the same experience at the same time, so that's why we bonded," Kelly explained. "And we live very close to each other. We're going out more often, we're doing more things together, so we're really close. Yeah, it's good."

Kelly also shared how her friendship with Shannon has impacted her relationship with Vicki as it's still unclear where the O.G. of the RHOC stands today after their reconciliation at least season's reunion. "Now Vicki, she's got a boyfriend [Steve Lodge], so she's not living the single life like Shannon and I, so we haven't been able to whoop it up," Kelly explained. 

But that doesn't mean Vicki is done whooping it up with Kelly, either. "We'll whoop it up tonight!" she exclaimed during the WWHL After Show.
