Shannon Beador is trying to move on from all of the drama that happened last year on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Beador’s husband cheated on her, and she was hurt by her friend, Vicki Gunvalson, as she didn’t give her the support she was looking for. These days, things are turning around for her and she’s working hard to surround herself with positive people who support her decision to fight for her marriage. Sadly, new housewife Kelly Dodd might not be in her corner.
According to a new Bravo report, Shannon Beador is now revealing that she’s shocked at Dodd’s behavior on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Beador just wanted to have a party for her friends where they could have fun, but it quickly turned ugly thanks to her co-star’s assumptions that Beador had set her up.

“It is unbelievable that Kelly thinks that I would orchestrate an ambush at a party I was hosting. I tell the truth. I have not lied at all with this group of women since I met them, and I’m certainly not going to start now. I’m not looking for any dark secrets or any stories about Kelly. I have only met her four times and would never do such a thing. I did not set Kelly up and the idea is preposterous,” Shannon Beador reveals in her blog for The Real Housewives of Orange County, according to Bravo.
After the party, Shannon and Dodd decided to sit down and discuss what the issue was between them. It is clear that these two ladies are not going to be the best of friends anytime soon.

“I wasn’t happy to meet up with Kelly and you can absolutely tell that from my demeanor,” Shannon Beador explains in her Real Housewives of Orange County blog for Bravo, sharing that she had no interest in sitting down with Kelly, especially since she essentially ruined her party.

Of course, Dodd seems convinced that Beador set her up by inviting people who clearly didn’t like her. She’s referring to a woman named Jaci, who appeared to have some beef with her. The two quickly started saying things about one another and the party quickly became a screaming match between the ladies. And for some reason, Dodd is convinced that Shannon Beador invited Jaci in order to set her up, so she could look ridiculous. However, Beador stands by her story that she had no idea that her co-star and Jaci knew one another.
“Bottom line, I didn’t know Jaci and Kelly knew each other. I’m not going to keep addressing it because I know the truth. And if Kelly didn’t want her husband to ‘feel uncomfortable’ with talk about a trip she took with another man, she shouldn’t have brought it up to Jaci. Kelly doesn’t know me. She has met me just a few times. And now she knows for certain that I ‘set her up’??? She knows nothing about who I am,” Shannon Beador continues in her blog for Bravo.

According to the Daily Mail, Shannon Beador and Dodd’s lunch wasn’t exactly a success. During Shannon’s party, Beador made the accusation that she had cheated on her husband. Of course, Dodd has been very open about being separated from her husband for a while, as the two contemplated getting a divorce. During this time apart, she was dating someone else. During the episode, she opened up about their relationship, saying that she never had an affair where she cheated on her husband. She was legally separated from her husband and she was engaged to someone else.
What do you think of Shannon Beador’s comments about her co-star? Do you think Dodd was wrong in how she handled the situation with Shannon?
