Shannon Beador: I Regret Saying What I Did About Steve

"I truly like Steve and think he is an amazing partner for Vicki."

By Shannon Storms Beador
Bienvenidos a Puerto Vallarta! You mentioned this was really your first time out after five months of being cooped up. What did that feel like?

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

Shannon BeadorStaying 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. 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. 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.
