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.
â€œI’m sorry, I don’t want to be friends with Vicki,â€ Shannon said. â€œI’ve been authentic, and I want to maintain my authenticity.â€
If you’ve been hoping for a reconciling between Shannon and Vicki during season 12, don’t hold your breath.
â€œTamra is a much nicer person than I,â€ Shannon joked. â€œShe’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.â€
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.
â€œTamra and I, of course, had a conversation about it,â€ Shannon told ET. â€œWe 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.â€
Shannon admits that Lydia McLaughlin and new Housewife Peggy Sulahian start most of the drama in Ireland.
â€œCertain people, you meet and you mesh,â€ Shannon shared. â€œI donâ€™t really mesh with [Peggy] â€¦ 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?â€
â€œShe’s really a pot-stirrer,â€ Shannon says, adding that she considers Lydia to be the seasonâ€™s top pot-stirrer. â€œI heard about this sweet, little girl, Lydia, and not so much to Shannon Beador!â€
