Shannon Beador has a lot to say in her blog this week. First, Shannon talks about the dinner at the Farmhouse. She also weighs in on watching the emotional conversation with her mom about her marriage to David and reacts to David’s digs during their family dinner.
“There was no secret, Lydia. I didn’t plan the dinner at the Farmhouse. I included Meghan last minute because I always believe in “the more the merrier”. But I never excluded you. Add it to your list of things you have against me that are completely wrong. That list just continues to grow and grow.
Funny Vicki showed a medical record when two years ago she said over and over and over again that would never ever happen with Brooks. I agreed with her until the questions wouldn’t stop. I suggested to just produce one record to shut everyone down and I was blasted for by Vicki for ever suggesting it. It became the end of our friendship. Clearly Vicki’s views on non-negotiable privacy issues have changed.”
Shannon shares what it was like to watch her conversation with her mom, Pat. She also reacts to Peggy Sulahian’s conversation with her children.
“My family always gets together for Easter and it’s always a holiday we look forward to. My mother is an absolute jokester so we are always laughing. It is difficult to watch our conversation because I never thought it would get so emotional. My mother always has amazing advice so it was nice to hear things through her perspective.
Wow. Is the best word to describe Peggy’s conversation with her children. David walked up to the roof of the boat because all the men were there. I kept telling him he would enjoy meeting Diko, so he joined in on the conversation. I hadn’t told David much of anything about Peggy’s health situation. And as confusing as Peggy continually is, Diko was as well. Diko was the one that brought up Peggy’s health as David entered the conversation. David was only trying to engage in conversation as a concerned person. You weren’t there, Peggy. Sorry you are so disgusted about a conversation you never heard. Unbelievable.”
Shannon also has a lot to say about the dinner with her family where David was throwing digs.
“Watching the dinner scene with my family, I have to say I’m a bit annoyed. I cook dinner every night and I always have “options” for everyone. We don’t get take out from “little taco stands.” Not sure why that was said.
When I turned 16, there was a gas crisis where people would wait in line for an hour to fill their car with gas. My father decided to put a gas tank on our property and we would pump our own gas through an antique gas dispenser. The first time I was about to drive to school on my own, I hit the dispenser with the car and the glass crown on the top fell and shattered. I got in a lot of trouble for that.
I was very fortunate growing up and I am incredibly thankful for that. That being said, it was important to my mother that we be humble and grounded. I had to be home at 10 AM every Saturday and Sunday to work on our 20 acre property. I appreciated everything that was given to me and I worked hard every single weekend. I try to do the same thing with my children. They have a list of chores longer than any of their friends and have to earn privileges. They do understand how fortunate they are.”
Shannon also insists she would support Tamra if she wanted to be friends with Vicki Gunvalson.
“I have told Tamra numerous times I will support her if she wants to continue a friendship with Vicki. Stop trying to deflect everything on me, Vicki. Vicki can continue to blame me if it makes her feel better. It’s sad that Vicki can’t understand that she herself crossed a line that may have done something to actually sever a friendship.”
