Emily Simpson: Her Behavior Shows She Lacks Empathy or Compassion for Others

"Her reaction at the Sugar Mill was over the top, and in my opinion, unjustified."

By Emily Simpson
Shannon Beador's Friendship With Tamra Judge Is Called Into Question

I was looking forward to dinner at the Sugar Mill in Jamaica. I anticipated a fun night of food, drinks and girl time, so I was surprised by how quickly the night turned into a nightmare. First of all, I think it’s extremely rude when someone shows up at a dinner so late. I’ve dealt with this issue for most of my life, and it hits a nerve with me when someone is continuously late. It says, “my time is more important than yours.” But Shannon  has her own time agenda. Secondly, once Shannon and Vicki did arrive, I was shocked to see that Shannon was mocking our conversation and making rude comments under her breath about how boring the night was. I suppose learning of her home selling is more “riveting” dinnertime conversation. Maybe she should always lead the dinner conversations since she has such “riveting” things to discuss, but first she has to at least show up on time.  

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.

Secondly, I thought Shannon’s reaction to Tamra bringing up the fact that she treats Gina and me poorly by not even acknowledging our existence was ridiculous. Her “time management” excuse is lame, especially when we are all on vacation and none of the things on her “full plate” are pressing matters right now. She’s not taking care of her children, going to court, or slinging microwaveable fish. Instead of just acknowledging that she doesn’t even give us the common courtesy of a “hello,” or “how are you,” she continues to dismiss anything anyone says to her, and she deflects from her own behavior by bringing up David and her divorce. Again, her behavior just demonstrates that she lacks any empathy or compassion for others. It was difficult listening to her in the bathroom talk about her divorce …again… Her reaction at the Sugar Mill was over the top, and in my opinion, unjustified. Lastly, I’m not sure what champagne has to do with anything?

Vicki Gunvalson Can’t Stop Twerking

The following day in Jamaica was really fun. I found it very interesting on the bus ride when Tamra read us her texts from Eddie. Even Eddie recognizes how draining and negative Shannon’s behavior is!  However, it was nice to just hang out together and laugh. I love that Vicki let loose and was twerking and having a great time. I think it was a relief for everyone that we could all just have fun and not have to worry about any negativity or complaining. I had an awesome day!

Until next week as the final Jamaica saga continues!
