It is no secret that RHOC stars Vicki Gunvalson and Shannon Beador haven’t been getting along, and it seems like their friendship will never be fixed.
“I’m sorry, I don’t want to be friends with Vicki,” Shannon said. “I’ve been authentic, and I want to maintain my authenticity.”
If you’ve been hoping for a reconciling between Shannon and Vicki during season 12, don’t hold your breath.
“Tamra is a much nicer person than I,” Shannon joked. “She’s more of a people pleaser than I, ’cause I’ll just say, no! You’re gonna see maybe some efforts being made. But one thing that Vicki, I think, has been successful in [is], she kind of has a way of threatening, to scare you, and I am not afraid. I’m a lot of things, but I’m not afraid.”
It makes you wonder if Vicki will keep good on her promise to “punish” Tamra and Shannon, especially when the women go on the trip to Iceland this season.
“Tamra and I, of course, had a conversation about it,” Shannon told ET. “We didn’t want to have a lot of tension [on the trip]. So, as we entered into a different country, we entered a different mindset of, we’re not going to make this trip stressful and make everyone tense. So, we were more open to having a conversation or, you know, doing things together. We did everything together.”
Shannon admits that Lydia McLaughlin and new Housewife Peggy Sulahian start most of the drama in Ireland.
“Certain people, you meet and you mesh,” Shannon shared. “I don’t really mesh with [Peggy] … and Lydia is completely judgmental. Just stop with the interview comments about me! They’re just, I mean, every week, what are we gonna hear now?”
“She’s really a pot-stirrer,” Shannon says, adding that she considers Lydia to be the season’s top pot-stirrer. “I heard about this sweet, little girl, Lydia, and not so much to Shannon Beador!”
