Oh, the things Shannon Beador's sparkling green top has seen and heard. The Real Housewives of Orange County pal brought her shamrock-hued finest to Ireland for that iconic Season 11 trip, where Shannon and her shirt were flies on the wall during a bit of a bar brawl between Kelly Dodd and the other 'Wives. In case you've forgotten the spirited scene, take a peek at the clip above. (It might even remind you of our own Saint Patrick's Day weekend Shenanigans.)
Well, the sparkling shirt is back — but not for long. Shannon's shed about 40 pounds in the past several months, and clothes that fit her in Season 11 need a little taking in now.
In a St. Patty's Day Instagram post, the Orange County mama gave a wink to Irish culture in clover-studded leggings and that famous green top. Holding the extra fabric on her now roomy top, Shannon wrote: "May have to finally retire the shirt bec it’s too big.."
Farewell, Ireland top! May you shine on in someone else's closet. And for now, let's all pour some out for the glittering shirt by taking one last peek at it in its natural habitat:
How that top could light up a room. Cue the bagpipes.
