Exclusive! Shannon Beador On The Rest Of RHOC Season 11: “It’s a Shocker!”


I had the pleasure of interviewing Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador. Shannon spoke about this season of the show and cleared up some misconceptions about what has happened thus far. Check out what she had to say below.

Congratulations on your vow renewal! How did it feel for David to surprise you like that?
Shannon Beador:
“If you would have said to me April 1st, when I found out that my husband was having an affair, that one week shy of that that he’s going to be surprising you and you’re going to renew your vows, I would have said, ‘You’re crazy!’ To be clear, it was 100% his idea. There was no prompting or anyone else… it was all him. The fact that he did it all makes it all the more meaningful.”

How are you and David doing today?
“We’re doing great! We are doing very well.”

Have you moved into a new house?
“We have. I think you’ll see that next week? We’re renting a house. Jeff Lewis helped me furnish it, because I really had no furniture that worked. The kids are really much happier, the only thing, they miss is the basketball court. But other than that, they are happier in this house. It’s a better location, it’s a good fit.”

Do you plan to stay here for awhile?
“We signed a year lease and it’s interesting because the property is for sale for $24.7 million and it’s basically a tear down, because it’s over an acre and it’s above the bay so there are amazing views. If they would have us for a year and a half or two years we would be happy.”

Isn’t Kelly Dodd your new neighbor?
“She’s really close, yes.”

Did you ever click with Kelly Dodd?
“The first night I met her at the boat party, I was a little bit taken aback by her comments, and she said other ones that you didn’t see air. But I was kind to her and I had a nice conversation with both she and her husband. I don’t like to judge people the first time I meet them, but she sure had some judgements about me, calling me, ‘Negative Nelly,’ and I don’t understand it. Unless she was prompted by someone else to say that, I don’t know?”

Do you feel like Kelly watched the show before joining the cast?
“Absolutely. She’s denying that she did. She studied everybody, trust me on that. She was on Watch What Happens Live with Jenni Pulos and she was answering all the questions correctly about all the other shows and our show. They had a game called “Shananigans,’ and they were questions about me. She knew David’s company name, she knew everything! Jenni and I are really close, but she beat Jenni in the Shannon game. I feel like she studied all of us and said, ‘I’m going to argue with Shannon, and I’m going to be Vicki’s friend.'”

Are you still not in a good place with her today?
“No, I’m not in a good place with her and it’s all of her doing. I was fine with moving forward with her. She’s really got a vicious mouth on her and her words cut like a knife. We were all shaken up at the sushi place and Heather was crying… those were true tears.”

Do you feel like you’ve been overly criticized for not being friends with Vicki Gunvalson this year?
“Absolutely, because you know what? Just because you forgive someone does not mean you have to be their best friend. I was involved in what I believe to be a pre-meditated lie that spanned over a substantial period of time and I don’t want to associate with people that do that. It’s as simple as that. I can be in a room with her, I can have a drink with her, I can have a conversation with her, but I’m never going to be her friend… ever. As the season progresses, people are going to say, ‘How could you ever say another word to her again?’ It’s a shocker.”

Was it the cancer scandal that was unforgettable to you?
“Yes. It’s forgivable, but it’s not forgettable. To me, it’s unconscionable. I think she found out very early on that Brooks wasn’t sick. But she did lie to me a month and a half before filming with the same IV story that she claims the she fabricated. So she fabricated a story a month and a half before filming for my compassion when she didn’t need my compassion. She always had my compassion. She did it for a reason and it was to prepare me to defend her when filming started and it’s as simple as that.”

What are your thoughts before filming the reunion?
“It’s interesting. It was Tamra’s birthday recently and Heather hosted a luncheon for her and we posted a picture with serious faces and I think Heather said, ‘We’re ready for the reunion,’ we were just joking around. Kelly has made some references on social media like, ‘Bring it, Shannon!’ like she thinks I’m trying to scour up dirt over her and it’s just not my personality, but if you don’t think people have come to me with stuff! [laughs] It’s very regularly if not daily will I have someone that knows someone that knows someone, it’s crazy. So she keeps saying, ‘Bring it, Shannon,’ like she’s got some damning evidence. Bottom line is I’ve done nothing but be authentic, I’ve aired parts of my life that most people wouldn’t air, and I’ve been truthful. If I had lied, you wouldn’t hear all the embarrassing stuff you’ve heard about me on the show so far. If she [Kelly] thinks she has something, then she should bring it to the reunion, because I’m dying to see what it is. I have no skeletons. So I say back to you, Kelly, ‘Bring it!'”

Shannon, I think you got bat s.h.i.t crazy again when David’s mom said that you pushed him into the affair because the truth partly rings true. No one is 100% at fault and while I don’t condone David’s or his mother’s behavior, I can’t help remember how awful you were to David by belittling him every chance you got. He said, ” All I want is to be happy and he clearly was happy with the other woman.” You need to take some responsibility for your role, them those comments won’t sting so bad.

I agree 100%

So true! I’m over OrangeCounty! It’s so boring!!

I so agree! Shannon is a loose cannon and yelling at David for what his mom said…Crazy!

Daaaammmnnn! You hit the nail on the head.
Also, the true tears part? I knew she was full of it at that point.

Truthfully put, Shirley.

Excellent interview!! Vicki and Kelly are sewer rat gutter trash , no offense to sewer rats!!!! Shannon is 100% correct, what Vicki did can NOT NOT NOT be forgotten.

Oh Rain, what an intuitive lady you are. Vicki and Kelly ARE sewer rat gutter trash. I think Kelly Dodd did watch the show and knew exactly where she was going to interject her poison. From the lunch at Meghan’s house where she first accused Shannon of being “cold” to Vicki, it was pretty much an indication that she was going to be a trouble-maker. And, she certainly didn’t disappoint. As for Vicki, what else can they make her a victim of and what else can she possibly bring to the party?? They still haven’t introduced her new boyfriend who… Read more »

You know texussgal, I’m not even sure Vicki is that rich. I feel any day now she will join the Bravo celebs who are in trouble with the IRS…. and ewwww that ‘love tank’ . Kelly is so thirsty, she should be the spokesperson for Aquafina. Kelly needs to join RHOA so porscha and Kenya beat he crap out of her! Oh my, did I just say that? 🙂

Rain, if that does happen to Vicki, she would NEVER own it..she’d just blame Brooks and say that she thought he was paying her taxes..she had a binder and everything. lol.

We need to all just send her a casserole really LOL

Oh my God…spokesperson for Aquafina…I DIED!

Hasn’t one single person ever considered that Vicky is NOT lying? She did admit to some small lies she said but I seriously doubt that Vicky would lie for a man if he didn’t have cancer? She does have friends and relatives that have passed away because of cancer and she does have friends/relatives that are currently suffering from cancer. After watching Vicky for 10 years I feel that I have a good sense of who Vicky is and who she is not. I will tell you that I 100% believe that Vicky did not nor does she to this… Read more »
I love your post Anonymous Two, well said! It’s mind boggling to see how many posters on this website think they know beyond a shadow of a doubt what happened… they have no clue, not really. I don’t even really know, but what I do know is that is that she said she didn’t know, Brooks said she didn’t know and her daughter Brianna also said she didn’t know. I think Vicky is guilty of being in love and trusting a man 100%, we’ve all been there at one point or another in some form of this. And the negativity… Read more »

LOLOLOLOLOLLOL. So you post as anonymous then respond to yourself? Sure, why not

Lol Rain sweetheart . I think you called that correctly

How are you sweet Daisy? ❤️❤️❤️

It’s been a crazy week with work and stuff . Spending the day on the island with friends . How’s things with you ?

Hi Daisy Sweetie, don’t work too hard! Xoxoxoxox

Yes Daisy, , don’t work too hard and have fun ❤️ Suze and I know what’s best for you lol

Hi sweet Suze . Lol you know work hard play hard. Today is for playing . Hope you’re having a great day

Lol Rain you know I love you . No worries not working today

Daisy, it should be play hard work a little????

Love it yes it should be

That’s Hilarious just what I said I would do if I ever tried posting with more than one name! I am going to put the next sentence in capitals maybe it will sink in with some posters.

Suze, funny how people can have selective memories

Good job we haven’t!

You are woefully incorrect. Vicki admitted to lying about somethings which are immaterial in the scheme of things. The lies do NOT mean she knew Brooks did not have cancer and chose to lie about it.

No I’m not incorrect! You are if you believe Liarface it’s up to you. Or are you Vicki or Brianna? Hmmm!!!

Yes u are. Ur blanket statements are not factual. But I am not going to argue with you b/c I could care less whether you think Vicki lied or not. Posters like you are good for a giggle tho

You can reply but you won’t argue???? I am right,, I know a lot more about Non Hodgkins Lymphoma that I would care to. Vicki said she made a folder? Then all the lies about the Dubrows? So I’m not making blanket statements. I’m glad you had a laugh, I always like making people happy!

Lol, what I thought was interesting is that as a viewer of Vicki for 10 years on tv, this person has an intuition that tells them she is not lying. Yet, telling other viewers that have watched Vicki for 10 years, and feel differently, they don’t know Vicki and that she is a stranger that is being hated on…hmmmmmmmmm? I wouldn’t pelt anyone for their views, but when someone writes negative comments about other commenters and calling THEM negative and hateful, for writing negative comments about someone on a reality show….it’s a bit perplexing 😀

Lol it had me confused but then so much does these days!

Hello Suze-Q, Daisy, freedom girl! Hope you’re all having a great Wednesday 🙂

Hi Janelle sweetie, how are those beautiful little girls of yours?

They are lovely, little monsters at times but mostly just great. Thank you for asking! Today they are with their “bff’s” at the babysitters. I’ve got work to do and as you can see I’m jumping right into it. LOL! I have to go in a minute, but just wanted to stop by and say HI to everyone!

Take care Janellexoxoxox

Hi Janelle sweetie. On my way to Galveston so I should have a great day. Hope you’re doing good. Have a great day sunshine

I’m jealous Daisy.

When you said island I knew it had to be Galveston :).. Either that or all the way down to S. Padre. Have a lovely day!

Don’t be jealous freedom girl. You are more than welcome to come with

Janelle believe it or not I have never been to padre island

Freedomgir, very well said ❤️❤️❤️But come on, we can tell when some people have more than screen name and post lol

Lol, I still get amused when someone comes on here and writes fairly cutting negative remarks towards other commenters for writing cutting remarks towards a wife. it’s only in algebra that two negatives make a positive, in communication, it stunts your point. Your post was funny 😀

Freedom girl…….TOUCHE! My thoughts exactly as I was reading those posts.

Rain, you took the words right off of my keyboard! How are you doing girl? xoxo

Janelle ❤️❤️❤️❤️ How are you sweet lady ?? I’m hanging in there (I think) and enjoying the cool weather we are having. The weekend was awfully hot and it’s going to heat up again tomorrow xoxo

Glad you’re still hangin! At least you have cool weather most of the time. When it’s hot here it STAYS hot until October 🙁 …Enjoy your lovely cool weather – I so envy you 🙂 And now I gotta fly. Too much to do and never enough time to do it…No complaints though!

my post went before I got to do my XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO’s

have a great day Janelle ❤️❤️❤️

Oh pulease… I dont have a need or desire to do things like that. I have more important things to do in my life, just thought I’d comment on a post I liked. And then here comes in all the mean girls or boys, who knows. I think you are all nothing but bullies. You dont like a post… you pop in and say negative mean things. You all need to examine your life, sad.

Please get a grip n your life! ‘Mean’ ‘bullies’ how old are you, still at school it sounds like it. You started being rude to other posters so suck it up!

Elolo……..I’m relatively new to this board. There are a lot of opinions and some think alike and some do not. But as long as you do not attack the posters for their opinions, you will be heard and respected for your thoughts. Word to the wise, calmly and respectfully disagree with a poster and do not resort to name calling.

Very nicely put Michelle 😀

Like 99.9% of newbies you slotted in and seem to have been commenting for ages. All are welcome unless they criticise others opinions. Xoxoxoxox
Enjoy your trip to London, I will be down south myself next Friday in Surrey with my kids, just for a couple of days.

Hey, Eboli, we have heard this ALL before, the examine your life bullshit. I guess you think you are surprising everyone with your deep psychological thoughts?
“examine YOUR life, asswipe” Yes we all know how important you must be now that your words of wisdom have enlightened us all, HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, PFfffffffffffffft.

Well said.

She admitted lying so yes, she lies. There are no “small” lies. it’s like being “sort of” pregnant. You either tell the truth, or you lie. And when it comes to ANYTHING involving cancer, there is no gray area. It’s black or white. You lie or you tell the truth. You stay with a man you KNOW is lying about cancer and you are aiding and abetting him. All you Vicki lovers can say whatever you want to try to boost her credibility but the bottom line is and always will be and she will go to her grave with… Read more »

Thank You for speaking the truth GiGiCat,Suze and Everyone else.
I feel sorry for people who think Vicki is so sweet and kind she could never tell a lie Blahahahahaha
I have MS and brain fog but Hell even I see vicki for what she is and hear what she has said she outed herself and her friends called her out .

Hillary not only lied , there is demonstrable endless proof. Sorry but you don’t have the same with Vicki nor would I put her in same category as the Hill

I was with you anon 2 until you started in deciding how others feel, and why they feel that way. Maybe your intuition is right, maybe not, but you aren’t the word of god either. Here you come judging strangers, just as you accuse others of doing, and hiding behind a screen……

ITA A-Two and have said the same thing. Not one person here or on the show (and yes that includes Shannon and shit-stirrer Tamra, and self-appointed moral authority Heather, and “I am Meghan with no storyline so I will cause probs for Vicki in her relationship since I don’t like her and I ‘m jealous that at least her BF is around while my husband can’t even be home to get me preggers, but the miracle of modern science eliminated my need for him anyway”) have any factual verifiable proof Vicki or Brooks are lying about cancer at the end… Read more »

Vicki lied about cancer despicable woman a skank!

Well said…All of the OC ladies have lied or were lied to and have made bad decisions….no one is perfect…this season only Meghan owned up to any bad decisions without a agenda and while she does not consider Vicki a “friend” she was still cordial….I also like the way she stood up for Kelly…

She hadn’t met this one yet until after taping was over. Poor guy. I predict he won’t be around long enough for the next taping to start either … if he’s smart. Yeah he was charged with battery and the guy before that – fake cowboy (I know the bar he owns and have been there once (once was enough) and it’s so fake and preppy it’s sickening) was arrested for beating his ex wife and throwing her or a girlfriend into a bonfire causing 3rd degree burns

Hey, texuss. I don’t watch this anymore, after all the seasons. I am only a fan of Tamra, so no use watching after last year’s sickening season. Anyway, I think anyone like Carlton, Kelly B or anyone else who said they didn’t watch before coming on the show is a liar. BS like “I wanted to just be myself” Yeah, Right!! 🙂

Rain I agree, great interview Nikki! I also think Shannon is 100% correct in not being friends with Liarface Vicki! I wouldn’t be friends with scum like her or Kelly either.


Hello, Hippy soul sister. How goes it over in beautiful SF Bay? How is the job treating you. Gosh, as I wrote that, I was taken with a thought that it might not be you that has the new part time job, that’s how much that stupid broken neck stuff messed with my memory. Well, you know whether I am off or not, the thoughts are real and right, whether the memory is or not…❤️

Me either. She is an ugly mess of plastic and an ugly, selfish heart.

I think you can calm down. I doubt Vicki would want to be friends with you, so no worries there.

Oh I love it sewer rat gutter trash! So jealous I wish I thought of it!!

Lol YoYo

I respect Shannon for not wanting to be Vick’s friend…last night when Vick was being so careful with her neck and then turning it 2 seconds later totally proved she is so fake. I can’t believe ANYTHING Vick says – Kelly can have her…can’t stand either of them…!

I noticed that too Jacks. Once again V turns any occasion into me me me! She and her family were celebrating Briana’s birthday but as Briana pointed out V was all about herself.

Remember when Vicki picked Brooks over Brianna!! So yes she’s all about herself

Shannon needs to take a step back and realize that if a spouse had an affair it’s about the couple and yes she is part of the problem. I also think Shannon seems to have a problem with everyone in her life so maybe the problem is Shannon?

I can’t believe that you honestly think the wife is always just as much to blame for the man having an affair. That is a really sad way to think unless you are a man? My first husband had an affair nothing was wrong between us he just couldn’t keep it in his pants! I certainly don’t take half the blame. I think Shannon is amazing to have forgiven him.

Thank you Suze. You are right on the mark with your comments. My husband and I got along fine, no money problems and nothing that I could detect might be wrong. He couldn’t keep his pants on either. Except, I should say, he did with me. Then, he turned around and told me maybe I should go out and sit at bars to see if I could “get lucky”. I was gobsmacked when he told me that. Perhaps it would have eased his conscience, but was totally distasteful to me. My only indicator that he was sleeping around was, I… Read more »

Oh texus gal, what a friggin bastard! Some ‘men’ don’t deserve to be called men! They are ants! Xoxox

Sorry about the language but it’s just the way I feel at the moment!

Isn’t Texas a carry state? With a lot of open, desolated areas? Period.

Lol yes it is

Oh sheeit Gigicat I just caught this lol

Texasgal you’re right. Some men are just born that way. I’m guessing you’re a very incredibly devoted type of woman. Don’t let his inhumanity take that away from you not ever. That would be you winning in every way understand?

Note: I’m shortening my name tag so I’ll go by this until a few days

WoW texussgal (((HUGS)) you married a fist class A$$H%#@! hope you divorced him

If a partner wants more fun in their marriage, make fun. If a partner wants more sex in a marriage, be sexy. If a partner wants to be heard more, listen more. If a spouse wants to go more places, make plans and invite your spouse. If a spouse wants more time alone, speak to your spouse. I always think of times in history when men ( sometimes the woman ) were gone from home for YEARS, and their families were waiting when they retuned. I am remembering being very, very ill, after being injured, and having severe problems in… Read more »

Some women suffer in silence from disease/illness/accidental injury/ Pregnancy and post pregnancy sometimes can barely crawl outta bed and then have to work ,care for children make a meal or several ,plus take care of a household so Easier said than done but it is a great idea for couples with no kids ….

First off, i want to say how much I LOVE this new font. It’s so much easier to read. Now, Shannon owes Vicki nothing (I’ve ranted on this enough) and Kelly needs to go to rehab. Other than that, Shannon seems to be the only normal-ish one.

I also forgot to add that Shannon now lives about 3 minutes from me. She’s up the hill, to the left. I wouldn’t mind running into her at Bristol Farms.

Oooh….let us know if you do…!!

Ooh I’m jealous! Tell her she has a lot of support here if you see her. Xoxoxox

Suze, I wonder if she did the interview with Nikki after reading our comments here 🙂 Shannon WE LOVE YOU ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

She should be pleased with a lot of comments here. There are more for her than against. She is real and that’s unusual for a HW. Xoxoxox

They should avoid other blogs lol

If I EVER see her, I’m going to tell her she has all our support and give her the blog name. Seriously, I will…

Yes please do GIGICAT, she gets savaged on twitter and other blogs so it’s nice for her to know we support her

Yes ditto to Rain, she does get a lot of support here and a few who don’t like her but post in several names! So childish!

GIGICAT, I’m so jealous lol. I guess we will be visiting you to so some good old fashioned stalking lol

Oh Gigicat, how lucky are you???!!!?? Maybe you will run in to Kelly too, as she is supposed to be Shannon’s new neighbor. I find this hilarious. You be sure to let us know if you run into either Shannon or Kelly.

I think David should asked his mom to leave. As soon as he was told about what she was saying. Shannon is his wife she comes first plus that would have shone he was a man

Why do we still have the “Notify me of follow-up comments by email” since I have not received an e mail in almost 2 weeks? Just asking:)

Hi Aunt Bee, that’s happening to me too & I don’t know what’s happening or why.
Does anyone else Know?

Hi, Starr of the skye. I think the trouble N***y was having with the blog for the last weeks is causing the problem. Apparently she is working as hard as she can to get the glitches out. I emailed her and that is the message I got from someone else who had gotten a return answer. She might need another reminder in case she thinks it is working, just in case. I don’t have notification set up so I wouldn’t be the person to look out for it. I wish I did at times, when I miss important things, but… Read more »
For crying out loud! Will Shannon ever take any responsibility? No, of course not! She’s got the darkest soul in HW franchise hx. Get over it. She’s calculating & no wonder David’s family can’t stand her, she was born EVIL! No compassion & a lunatic. Crazy eyes even includes the kids & brow beats her husband. She wants to play the victim well bullsh_t. She is a con artist. Doesn’t want strangers packing her sh_t & will let her friends. She’s a cheap skate! She’s lazy & has a sense of grandiosity! How Jeff can stomach her is beyond me.… Read more »

Oh Vicky is that you? Cancer scam artist queen shut up

Lol xxoo

Or it’s a certain someone with different screen names lol! Psssshhh

Maybe we should start posting using lots of names? Trouble is I would get mixed up and probably answer myself! Xoxoxox

Oh my Gosh, Suze, that would be so much fun..post a comment on here, change your name and then argue with yourself…lol.. If I was tech savvy, I’d try it.

About two years ago I used to post regularly on another blog. They had a lot of problems and it turned out one person had fifty names! Can you imagine that! I was chatting one day to a really nice person and someone insulted her but then used another name and we caught them out it was hilarious, made our night! I couldn’t do it I would guarantee I would mess it up. Maybe one day I will try it but then I will admit to it as well!

LOL you funny!!!! ♥️

Susie♥️ As you know I told you about changing my name you gave me to keep it briefer, so Miss M it is. ☂❌⭕️♥️⭕️❌

Testing 1 2 3

Thank you !!!

Blahahahaha Vicki is tryin’ to defend her honor let her speak she just makes the hole bigger so far it takes up all of Cali

I’m so over these trashy women of the OC. Especially with the return of Vicki and addition of Kelly, no thank you! I will find something else that numbs my mind and let’s me forget those low-class women.

Does anyone know why Kelly is the only RHOC to post a blog this week?

Testing 1,2,3…
