BravoTV.com: You mentioned this was really your first time out after five months of being cooped up. What did that feel like?
Shannon Beador: Staying home for five months was not fun. I didn’t even go out to dinner once. I felt that I needed to attempt to process through some pain before I started doing things socially. I had a lot of difficult days and nights, but I believe that I emerged a stronger person, knowing that I can stand on my own whether I have a partner in my life or not. That being said, I was ready for a crazy and fun few days away with Tamra and Vicki. The three of us have a history of some wild times, and I was looking forward to creating some new memories that would have us laughing for many years ahead. That definitely happened.
BravoTV.com: Do you regret voicing your opinion about Vicki's relationship with Steve?
SB: I absolutely regret saying what I did about Steve. At this point, I have only interacted wth him twice, and that was a few years ago. Through my 15-tequilas haze and slurred words, I was reminded of a conversation Vicki and I had in Ireland two years ago about Brooks being her soul mate. She had literally just met Steve at the time. I regret voicing an opinion about a subject I really had no knowledge of. I truly like Steve and think he is an amazing partner for Vicki.
BravoTV.com: Most people don't get to watch back their wild nights out. What is that experience like?
SB: Watching back the ugly parts of a boozy night is uncomfortable and not the most fun. But at the same time, I laughed out loud as I was reminded of some of the events of the trip. And there are many more that I hope people can see in the future. I am grateful that my two friends joined me in Mexico and we acted like 21-year-olds. We all needed some fun and a big dose of crazy. We absolutely got that.
