Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador and Gretchen Rossi appeared on Watch What Happens Live Monday night to dish on what’s going on with the show and answer viewer questions with Andy Cohen.
Andy asked Shannon what the current state of her relationship with Vicki Gunvalson was. “We’re not speaking,” Shannon revealed, adding that she doesn’t think their relationship will ever be the same.
Next, Andy asked Gretchen for her opinions about anything she’s seen this season that she wanted to share. “Vicki and Tamra had so much to say about my relationship with Jeff and they beat me up all the time about everything and I was attacked all the time and I find it interesting that Vicki is now coming on the show with a family member that is sick with cancer when they said I shouldn’t be on a show with somebody that’s sick with cancer. They also had a lot of false accusations about me and now Vicki is in that same hot seat. Part of me feels compassion for her, but part of me feels like karma has shown up and her name is Meghan.”
A caller asked Shannon if she knows why Vicki and Brooks recently broke up. “Well I don’t know because I wasn’t speaking to her before it happened, but from what I know they’ve had struggles within their relationship. I think they’ll probably get back together if you look at history, but I don’t know the inside info.”
Gretchen revealed that she is now friends with Tamra Judge’s former BFF Ricky and Andy said during the commercial break that Shannon and Gretchen got into an argument because Gretchen told Shannon that she had been drinking the “kool-aid” and that Tamra is a pot-stirrer. A viewer asked Shannon how she has been able to forgive Tamra. “I have seen a transformation. I have spent a lot of time with her. She went through a lot and we’re very close right now and I’m a very good judge of character. We’re in a good space and she’s a good person.”
A viewer asked Gretchen if she has an opinion about Brooks’ cancer. “I’m not a doctor, I don’t know whether he has cancer or not, but I do have to say there is a lot of shady shade coming out of what’s happening. For me with Jeff, I wanted help from everyone around me. If someone was questioning me, I would have brought out the medical records in 5.2 seconds. I don’t blame the women for questioning it.”
