Shannon Beador: Time Will Tell If Tamra And Heather Want To Develop A True Friendship With Me


Shannon Beador is writing her last blog of the season. Shannon settles the score, says she made great friends in Vicki Gunvalson and Lizzie Rovsek while filming and only time will tell whether or not Heather Dubrow and Tamra Judge want a real friendship with her.

Shannon writes, “This is Blog #20, my last Blog for the season! The past year was been a wild ride for both me and for my family. I have come to many realizations about myself, made lifelong friends, experienced some tough moments, and embarked on a path to a more peaceful self. So to use Andy’s phrase, “What’s the score, Shannon Beador?” I would say without a doubt that I have definitely won.

I am happy that the viewers got a little glimpse into my sometimes unconventional ways! For me, it’s all about good energy. I love that Vicki’s business has clearly benefited from trying feng shui with Elaine Wright. If you can’t get hurt, there is no reason to try anything holistic. If you actually benefit, why wouldn’t anyone want to go the natural way? If my children tend to feel better after seeing Dr. Moon and not have to take antibiotics, then I am a happy mom. It’s all about creating a healthy balance!

I am an open book and am often criticized for it, but I am who I am. I don’t know many couples married for 13 years that have a perfect relationship. Everyone has ups and downs, and although it may be difficult and require effort, it is possible to move through it and make things better. I have said it many times in the season that divorce is not an option. I will always fight for my marriage and my family. It truly touches my heart that so many fans have been and continue to root for David and I. I am so appreciative and grateful for all of your positive comments! Thank you!

Do Tamra and Heather truly want to move forward and potentially develop a friendship with me? Only time will tell. But for now, I have amazing friends surrounding me, including Vicki Gunvalson and Lizzie Rovsek. And most importantly, I have been blessed with the most incredible family anyone could ask for. That is where all of my energy is focused.

I will never forget this entire year, both the good and the bad, because each moment took me on the journey to where I am today. And today, I am in a phenomenal and happy place. Thank you for taking this journey with me!”

  1. Shannon was the most important housewife this whole season (best storyline and a LOT of camera time). And it’s interesting that it was her first season on the show. She brought the drama and people liked it. I hope she’s back for season 10.

  2. It was a pleasure to watch someone who has brains, beauty, honesty and common sense. I guess
    that their can be nice people on reality TV. Too bad Bravo doesn’t’ look for them.
    Also, forgot to mention morals.

  3. You know what Shannon, you don’t really let go of things either. Not any more than Heather does. Both of you ladies *say* you have accepted each other’s apologies but both keep going on and on about it, and keep pointed at the other one saying SHE isn’t this or SHE isn’t that. Your favorite whipping girl is Heather and visa-versa ALL SEASON LONG and the fascinating thing is that the one thing you BOTH have in common is the inability to let each other off the hook. It’s like watching you fight yourself, and frankly it’s getting boring. I hope the Zen you claimed to have gotten in Bali got you off that broken record and Heather off hers and we can have a new storyline for next season.

  4. That’s what I do not get. Who does want heather and tamra for friends . I do not even like Gretchen, but she fell into being Tamras friend. So silly.If tamra is nice to them they just forgive her and just love her until tamra changes her mind and turn soon them. Danielle had her husband to call her and You better never trust her. Watch heather too. Tamra does anyone that way so watch out. Heather is not your friend either. She thinks what she says will make everyone like her … Not.Shannon you my dear, your just a real woman, honest, pretty and trustworthy. You got it all. You are what those women should be. You were the star this season.

  5. I have enjoyed watching Shannon and David but girlfriend I just feel all the popularity may have gone to your head a bit and I have to say I did notice Shannon didn’t let go of thing’s as well but that could be because she got bitten quite a few times by Tamra and Heather, so I would have reservations as well..Shannon I have enjoyed you the most this season but stay grounded and if you don’t want to forgive someone just own it don’t do it by halves.

  6. You don’t want or need friends like Tamra and Heather. Heather was jealous of you bc Vicki and Tamra liked you. There was a scene when you went to Mexico with Vicki…Heather said something about Vicki should remember that Heather is her friend. This entire season she was acting like she was in high school. So pathetic to watch. You are wonderful. I’m glad I watched this season after skipping it the last two.

  7. Who needs enemies with friends like Heather and Tamra. My heart went out to Shannon. It is exhausting to have to defend yourself 24-7!!! Heather apparently doesn’t know what being yelled at is! I hope Shannon comes back next season.

  8. Shannon….as Maya Angelou said..when people show you who they are…believe them..the first time. Toxic environments includes the space around us and the people in that space. Do the Heathers and Tamra’s of the world mirror something we need to look at…absolutely. Sometimes a bad example, is a good example. You are a kind, decent woman and I think your shock this season was with the fact that there are deceptive, manipulative, even evil people out there in the world. Protect yourself. See you next season.
