Shannon Beador: Vicki Should Practice What She Preaches

"And then to hear Vicki and Kelly whispering and mocking my weight gain..."

By Shannon Storms Beador
The Art of Saying Hello to Someone You Don't Like

One of my least favorite parts of the show is watching back what other people say about you. It can get quite frustrating and hurtful when people don’t accurately describe your intentions and say cruel things. This happens quite a bit in this episode.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Bravo Thursday, July 11 at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

It’s funny to hear Vicki talk about Tamra “throwing grenades and then walking away and everyone needing to be ok with it.” No, actually that’s what Vicki does over and over again. The end of last season is proof of it.

As much as everyone would love to believe, I’m not worried or nervous about seeing Vicki or meeting with Kelly. I don’t want to be phony with Vicki.  I don’t like her and have no intention of being her friend again. A quick “hello” if that at the Sip-N-See and that will be it.

Kelly continually says I don’t take ownership of my actions. I do all the time. I certainly did with reference to the Quiet Woman and have said again and again that I regret my behavior. I make mistakes on a daily basis and know that I am the only one responsible for those mistakes.

When meeting Kelly, I was a bit perplexed. She knew that Tamra and I were going to be at the Quiet Woman. I wasn’t “pissed off” when I saw her. I was surprised, and you can hear what I say. Once again, I wasn’t yelling at her—just shocked to see her. I definitely think Kelly came to the Quiet Woman to stir things up, but I would like to forge ahead, so I don’t plan to discuss it with her anymore.

Kelly and Vicki Can't Stop Gagging

Kelly seems to get the wrong take on things quite often. Watching her speak with Vicki and recount her meeting with Tamra and I was frustrating. I never said Vicki was responsible for weight gain. This story is getting old. And then here we go again with Vicki and her lies. She has proof of nothing. But she does have a long history of lying and is clearly not stopping it any time soon.

And now to watch all the women discussing the Quiet Woman again. Kelly and I said we were moving forward, so I’m not sure why she is still talking about it. The bottom line is Lydia knew we all didn’t get along and had no right to invite or try to include Kelly in a dinner that Tamra and I invited her to. Seems like Lydia and Kelly are trying to spin a different story so that they seem innocent with only good intentions.  I don’t think they did a successful job.

The OC Ladies Throw Shade at Each Other

Seeing Vicki at the Sip-N-See just reaffirmed that I have finally reached a place where Vicki’s presence doesn’t mean anything to me. I woke up with a cold the morning of the event (you can hear it in my voice), so I was not drinking. Asking for one cocktail when everyone else had been drinking all afternoon and when the event was over has absolutely nothing to do with seeing Vicki. Not sure why anything is being made of it. 

It was interesting to hear Vicki say that some of things that Tamra and I have done are unforgivable. Vicki should practice what she preaches.

And then to hear Vicki and Kelly whispering and mocking my weight gain... I know they have never gained substantial weight ever in their lives.  Glad they got a laugh. Nothing but cruel.

To hear Vicki say that she has been such a good friend is laughable to me. She says she is going to “punish” Tamra and I for not being her friend? There’s only one bully in this group and she certainly started our “punishment” last year as she tried to destroy families. Mission accomplished, Vicki. Keep it up.

Until next week…
