On the latest episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, the drama came not just from the housewives but from one of the housewives’ husbands. During Shannon Beador’s ’70s-themed party, her husband, David Beador, got into a very heated argument with Vicki Gunvalson.
Prior to the episode airing, Vicki posted a photo of herself with newbie Kelly Dodd dressed in their costumes for the party. Vicki asked her Instagram followers to let her know what they think of David yelling at her unprovoked. In a series of hashtags, Vicki made fun of and criticized David. Vicki wrote that David has crazy eyes, is a yeller, doesn’t care about her, isn’t classy, and never apologized to her.
What actually happened between David and Vicki at the party? David lashed out at Vicki when Vicki commented that Shannon, who was arguing with Kelly Dodd, “was at her glory right now.” David confronted Vicki for not admitting that she took a part in her ex Brooks Ayer’s fake cancer scheme.
“Vicki f**k you. You need to shut your f*****g mouth. You shut your mouth. You lied about cancer. You still haven’t f*****g fessed up. You need to shut your f*****g mouth. You understand me? You need to shut your f*****g mouth. You f*****g, as soon as you admit to lying, then you’re scot-free.”
Shannon tried to get David to come to her defense in her own argument with Kelly but David continued yelling at Vicki.
“I think you’re a f*****g pig. You are the lowest of the low. You are the lowest of the low…You’re a f*****g scumbag cause you don’t come clean.”
Vicki reminded David that he’s the one who’s a cheater.
“David shame on you. You don’t even know. I am not. Shame on you…Shame on you. You’re filthy. You’re a cheater and a bad guy.”
Clearly, David believes with his wife that Vicki still isn’t taking any responsibility for lying about her then-boyfriend Brooks Ayers having cancer. David may have also been very angry with Vicki for talking about his affair. Vicki has continued to deny that she knowingly lied about Brooks having cancer.
Shannon Beador and Vicki Gunvalson used to be good friends, so good that Shannon and David even went to Mexico with Vicki and Brooks on Season 9, but the friendship deteriorated last season. On Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon at first defended Vicki when questions started arising, particularly from Meghan King Edmonds, over whether Brooks really had cancer. Yet later on, Shannon herself began to have some questions herself.
Over lunch, Shannon told Vicki to just show the other housewives Brooks’ medical records in order to stop their doubts. Vicki took this to be a betrayal and tearfully told Shannon to stop talking about the subject. Shannon didn’t understand why Vicki was being so defensive and didn’t like Vicki making it seem as if she did something wrong when she was just trying to help. As the season wore on, Shannon started believing with the others that Vicki was helping Brooks lie about having cancer.
The final nail in the coffin of Shannon’s friendship with Vicki came during Tamra Judge’s baptism party, which was shown on the Season 10 finale episode. Shannon had previously shared with Vicki, when they were still good friends, that David cheated on her. At the baptism party, in front of several other people, Vicki’s brother’s girlfriend, while defending Vicki to Shannon, let it slip that Vicki told her about David’s affair. Shannon, enraged, immediately went over to where Vicki was, grabbed her arm, and yelled at her for being a fake friend.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Vicki defended herself after the episode aired by pointing out that David’s affair wasn’t exactly a secret since Tamra and Heather Dubrow already knew. Shannon immediately called out Vicki for lying. Shannon explained that at the time of the party, Vicki did not know that Tamra and Heather already knew of David’s affair and so should have still been keeping the secret. Tamra backed up Shannon’s claim.
With how explosive the fight between David Beador and Vicki Gunvalson was at the ’70s party, perhaps David will show up at the Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11 reunion show to help defend Shannon Beador and face off once again with Vicki? Or perhaps David will realize that he should stay out of the women’s drama and maybe even give Vicki the apology she’s looking for?
