Shannon Beador is taking to her blog to react to this week’s episode of the RHOC in Ireland. Shannon reveals what happened while the cameras were down and why she thought Heather should record Kelly in the hallway. Beador also insists she had no agenda in trying to get Kelly drunk at dinner.
“Well, I am having an amazing time in Ireland! Don’t like the fighting, but I can honestly say that there’s nothing better than a few fun gals having a Hooley Kickin’ time in Ireland!
Before I dive into this week’s episode, I have to address something in Kelly’s blog last week. She stated that “Shannon couldn’t wait to run to Tamra in the store and tell her what I had said.” Let me make it clear. I had no intention of hurting one of my best friends. But when Tamra specifically asked me what Kelly and I spoke about, I was not willing to lie. Tamra told me what my mother-in-law said about me and it may not have been the best time either, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. But what is most distressing about Kelly’s blog is her statement that Tamra hit her. Tamra did no such thing. She pushed Kelly and quickly walked away. I was witness to everything, as well as the other ladies present. Kelly needs to stop blaming others for her horrendous comments and start telling the truth.
So let’s get into this episode. We had no idea that we were going on a farm to milk cows. Joe was an amazing host. As much as I said I would gladly put on a huge protective suit so that I looked like Tamra and Heather, that was not the case. I was clearly the biggest marshmallow of the bunch! #wishfulthinking
I wasn’t excited about eating steak at the farm. And then when Vicki started talking about her uneven nipples, I was blown away. I couldn’t believe that she pulled her bra down to actually expose her breasts. Would never happen on this end…
When Kelly apologized to Tamra at dinner, it just seemed to follow the same pattern that we have seen before. She goes for the jugular and says the most hurtful things possible, and then apologizes like it was nothing. Kelly said that she did not intend to hurt Tamra by making the statement to me about Tamra’s daughter.
It’s interesting that Vicki says that she “understands where Kelly is coming from, that she felt ganged up on.” Well, Vicki was one of the people that wanted nothing to do with Kelly and sat with us on the ride home from the pub crawl. She clearly let Kelly know how she felt…and it was pretty obvious when she sat with Tamra.
Bicycle riding was funny. We all are flipping out of practice when it comes to that! But when we arrived to our destination, I could not get over the beauty! I was a bit shocked with Kelly’s reaction to Heather opening a champagne bottle and bringing Fireball. We all have a history with Fireball. Kelly didn’t drink at our picnic and neither did I.
We were all exhausted at the end of our trip. But we had one last dinner and I wanted everyone to rally and have fun! Kelly told us that tequila was an upper when we first landed and were so tired. So that was my drink of choice for the night because I was exhausted along with everyone else! Kelly has never turned a drink down in my recollection. She was drinking a tequila when she was sick at dinner with Tamra and Heather before her beach party. I ordered doubles to get the ball rolling. We were on vacation and I was just trying to end the trip on a high and fun note. Yet Vicki, who had no problem accepting the drinks ordered, said that I had a “mission to get to get Kelly drunk.” Give me a break. No one had an agenda…I didn’t, Tamra didn’t, and Heather didn’t. What I found disturbing is hearing Kelly say that if she has too much to drink, she is going to snap. Not normal.
Kelly left the table after dinner and about 30 minutes later came to my door with Vicki. Kelly was dressed to the nines. Kelly, the gal that said she was too tired to drink, was ready to go out and have a good time. Interesting.
Heather, Tamra and I went to the pub much later, and Tamra texted Vicki to come down. Vicki started to bad mouth Kelly and tell Tamra things that Kelly was saying abut her. Tamra started to text Kelly about it. When we got out of the elevator to go to our room and finish packing, Kelly was literally running down the hallway towards us. It was unsettling. I asked Heather to film it because Kelly was over the top.
As far as the bus ride goes, here we saw the cruel and erratic Kelly we have become familiar with at this point. I had reached an understanding with her on the trip to Ireland, but she decided to convince herself that I somehow had a sinister motive when ordering drinks on our final night to have fun. When she yelled that I needed to take the hair off my chin, I was dumbfounded. Kelly attacks people with the cruelest words she can say. It is so incredibly hurtful. I was beyond upset that Vicki sat there on the bus like nothing happened. Once again, Vicki is not telling the truth and playing both sides of the fence.
It becomes uglier than you can imagine next week. It is unconscionable.”
