RHOC star Shannon Beador is speaking out about her tumultuous friendship with her co-star Vicki Gunvalson.
Many fans want to know if there’s a possibility of Shannon forgiving Vicki. “When you cross the line and make the allegations that she did about my husband, that does nothing but hurt my family, and my job as a mother is to protect my family. And I will cut anybody out of my life that is as hurtful as that,” Shannon told The Daily Dish, adding that she doesn’t think an apology from Vicki to her face would fix anything. “So for better or worse, I wish her well, be happy with your new man, I forgive you. I don’t want you in my life.”
Shannon revealed on WWHL this week that even if Vicki had not made those allegations about her husband, she still wouldn’t want a friendship. “I’m human, but if I put myself back into the ring, then I’m the only one who’s responsible for getting hurt again. I was already hurt by her before,” Shannon explained. “So I just live my life. I cut you out when it gets to a certain point.”
Beador also defended her friend Tamra Judge, saying that Tamra has nothing to do with her disdain for Vicki. “For Vicki to allege that if I weren’t in the picture she would have this friendship with Tamra, I don’t influence Tamra. I don’t tell her who to be friends with and who not to be friends with. In fact, if you see this season, Lydia [McLaughlin] isn’t being so nice to me, but yet Tamra is still friends with her. I’m not saying, ‘Tamra if you’re my friend, don’t be friends with her.’ I don’t do that,” Shannon said. “I’ve made my decision for myself and what’s healthiest for me. And she’s capable of making her own decisions.”
And Shannon believes Vicki and Tamra’s friendship is over for good too. “You’ve seen Tamra, I think, over the 10 years say, ‘I’m done with you, let’s be friends again,’ and it’s been this pattern,” Shannon shared. “But I think that she’s made realizations, and I think that the allegations and the accusations kind of reached a new high. They crossed a line. And I think at that point, that’s when you say, ‘It’s too much. Not gonna do it again.'”
