The Real Housewives of Orange County Recap: Shannon Beador vs. The World

Shannon Beador is not a fan of Gina Kirschenheiter or Emily Simpson.

Ever since the two new housewives debuted on this Bravo hit, they’ve tried to get through the wall Shannon has up. 

On Monday’s episode, the heat was turned up when the women made their way to Jamaica. 

The ladies were given two penthouses, meaning they would have to split up. 

“Shannon’s [rooming] with those two,” Kelly Dodd said with a grin, looking at Gina and Emily. 

“No. The tres amigas,” Shannon countered, referring to Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson. 

Who would have thought these three would ever be this close?

In any case, Gina wanted to try and stop all of the drama, but it fell on deaf ears. 

“Are you sure? It’s not too late!” she said to Shannon about rooming with her. 

“Sorry,” Shannon said with the least apologetic look on her face.

“We’ll be in the sorority house. You guys will be in the old folks home,” Emily said, chiming in with a huge grin.

Gina added, “The retirement villa!”

It was like Shannon just wanted the two women to disappear because she fails to acknowledge their existence at the best of times. 

This trip is going to be fun!

“Shannon’s so rude! It’s ballsy, you know? I commend her rude balls,” Gina said in a confessional. 

“Of all the people on this trip, I know Gina and Emily the least, and I wanna enjoy myself,” Shannon countered in a confessional of her own, adding:

“Who I do know quite well are the tres amigas!”

But Shannon was not done yet. When they were in their separate penthouses, she continued to make horrid comments about the two newcomers. 

Tamra Judge, Shannon’s BFF, picked up on the way she was acting and told her to “pull out” whatever was in her butt. 

The tension continued to mount at dinner when Tamra noticed the way Shannon checked out of all conversations that related to Gina or Emily. 

“Everybody listens when Shannon is venting, but when other people are, it’s like she’s checked out,” Tamra said to viewers. 

After another awkward night, Emily and Gina thought it was time to get some intel on Shannon because they felt like they made every effort to be friends. 

“She’ll warm up, it just takes her a little time,” Tamra said the next morning to the women.

“The funny thing is, though, I understand it takes time,” Gina said. “But it’s like, she will tell us everything about her, but it takes her time to give a shit about us.”

“Eddie tells me I’m an enabler when it comes to her,” Tamra said in response, and it’s easy to get on board with that. 

But what followed was an epic rant about her supposed BFF. 

“I feel sorry for her! I feel bad for her! Every day, she wakes up with a negative comment,” Tamra complained.

“Every single day. Every day, I’ll get a text, and it’s like, ‘Last night was horrible!’ As soon as she gets here, ‘I’m gonna get Zika!’ That’s just her personality, and I think I’ve just adapted to her personality.”

Emily wondered whether Shannon’s much-publicized divorce to David was to blame for the way she was acting. 

“She’s been sad since I’ve known her,” said Tamra in response to that. 

Okay then. 

Could this be the end of the line for Shannon and Tamra, or could they patch things up?

It’s not looking good.
