After learning Gunvalson told her brother and his girlfriend about her husband’s eight-month affair, Shannon Beador flips on Gunvalson, demanding to know why she’s spread news of such a hurtful life event. In response, Gunvalson claimed she was simply relaying the news of David’s affair to her brother and his girlfriend Rhonda because they knew Shannon Beador and her husband, and also claimed her co-stars were already in the loop. Still, Shannon Beador was extremely upset with Gunvalson, even grabbing onto her arm and slamming her for dragging her into Brooks Ayers’ cancer drama.
On October 12, Gunvalson shared the following message with fans on Instagram.
“Season 10 is finally a wrap! Wow, what a messed up season on so many levels. I’m happy it’s over and can regain normalcy and peace.”
Last week, after discussing her husband David’s affair on Watch What Happens Live, Shannon Beador took to her Bravo TV blog, where she addressed the ongoing criticism over her alleged abandonment of her friendship with Gunvalson. Below is what Shannon Beador told fans on October 5.
“I have looked at some of the social media comments in the last few weeks and I have to say it is quite upsetting to hear that some viewers believe I haven’t been a good friend to Vicki Gunvalson. I have been by my friend’s side throughout this season, more than any other cast member. As a good friend, I wanted to help Vicki and Brooks stop the rumors about his illness.”
While Shannon Beador claimed she wished she was able to simply “put a pin in it” and stop the ongoing allegations against Ayers, it wasn’t happening, which led her to suggest Ayers produce medical records, proving his diagnosis once and for all. According to Shannon Beador, she wanted to “truly end the talk and speculation.”
“Originally I believed it was outrageous for Brooks to produce medical records to shut speculation down about his illness, but after a certain point, I realized it was the only thing that would actually end the discussion. I cannot comprehend how that constitutes a bad friend.”
Shannon Beador joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County during Season 9, and quickly established a friendship with Gunvalson. However, after learning of her gossiping, and growing frustrated with the Ayers fake cancer story line, Shannon Beador cut ties, and from the looks of things, it may be for good, as the two women haven’t been spotted together in months, aside from last month’s Real Housewives of Orange County Season 10 reunion filming.
While Gunvalson recently told fans on Twitter she was planning to fix her issues with her Bravo co-star Shannon Beador, Beador hasn’t reciprocated her comment. In fact, Shannon Beador has been fairly silent on social media for the last few days, choosing only to share a couple of photos with fans on Instagram and promote tonight’s Real Housewives of Orange County finale on her Twitter and Facebook pages.
