Shannon Beador Admits Vicki Gunvalson Isn’t to Blame For Her Weight Gain

Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador is finally admitting that she is to blame for her weight gain, not Vicki Gunvalson.

“I just went off the wagon a little,” Beador tells US Weekly. “I’m the one that put the stuff in my mouth.”

Shannon revealed on the show that she had gained 40lbs, but blamed it on Vicki Gunvalson, who claimed Shannon’s husband David had beat her.

However, Shannon says she has been able to kick some of the weight she’s gained over the past year by counting calories and working out 30 minutes a day. “I’m working on it,” she says, revealing that she’s already lost 8 pounds. “Slowly but surely getting there.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Shannon looks beautiful with the bit of extra weight! But please don’t pass the buck on your few extra pounds – take your own responsibility …. and please stop putting your face into others faces – not good.

    About time Shannon took the blame rather than blame the world. She loves to point fingers, now she’s pointing it where it should’ve been pointed from the start. Mean spirited fool.
    Having said that, I wish her well on here weight loss journey as truth be told, she does not look good & cannot feel good.

    Shannon looked like an idiot, yelling and blaming. Too bad it made Vicki LIARface look better than her. Shannon–show the world you are better than Vicki LIARface, and not LIKE her!

      she seems to look like an idiot most of the time…… she’s a loose cannon

      Totally agree with you Egg. I like Shannon and hate to see her acting crazy.

      Too late for that egg. Unfortunately, being mean & nasty has become her nature. It’s a pity that Shannon does not realize that a little bit of kindness goes a very long way.

    Accountability is the first step, so this is a good start. Being mindful of what you put into your body helps as well. Now, if she can cut the alcohol while she’s working to bring her body back to a healthy place, she’ll see results sooner than she knows it. It will also be of help to seek the assistance of a a licensed professional or trusted clergy to help her get to the root of why she is using food and alcohol as a crutch…those issues will have been present long before Vicki and long before the show. I wish her the best.

    I feel sorry for David….eating quinoa all the time

  • Michelle

    Of course it’s not Vicki’s fault. But at least she’s acknowledging this fact which should bring about her weight loss along with all that’s she’s doing. I still feel there is something deeper going on with her cause she is acting really crazy this season……..okay I’ll admit it, more so than usual. Still team Shannon.

    Shannon. You need to own how beautiful you are. Next stop having anything to do with Tamra. She is not a friend. She thinks about herself first. I think you should leave the show and get involved in other projects that have nothing to do with any of them. Your husband is right though about the restaraunt business. It is about the hardest of all things. If one little thing doesn’t suit a customer they won’t come back and will tell all people they talk to.
