Shannon Beador has been dealt a hard hand in recent years. She was faced with her husband having an affair and thrust into the reality television spotlight. Her friendship with Vicki Gunvalson was torn apart because of Brooks Ayers’ lies about cancer, and it is at the point where repairing it isn’t worth it. The two have now become distant strangers as Gunvalson has chosen Kelly Dodd over any loyalty she once had to Beador. As if all of that wasn’t bad enough, she is now facing a Twitter battle with two former stars of the Real Housewives of Orange County.
Bravo has reportedly intervened on the Twitter feud and attempted to give Shannon Beador some peace. According to All About the Tea, Shannon Beador reportedly went to the network and demanded they put a stop to the public bashing. She was allegedly quite angry and acted like a spoiled brat. Because of the demands, the network sent out a letter to all of the current Real Housewives of Orange County ladies, instructing them to drop the bashing and only use social media as a positive outlet. There were also instructions in there to save the drama for the reunion. This will be taped within the upcoming weeks and could possibly be the most dramatic yet.
The bad blood between Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd has been highly entertaining for fans. They are the two newest members of the cast and are butting heads constantly. Dodd is Vicki Gunvalson’s new best friend, and Beador and Meghan Edmonds have grown close. The ironic part of all of this is each lady has walked away from the friend who got them the job on the show. Words exchanged between these two often hit below the belt and Dodd has no filter, making what she says to Beador that much more shocking. After the affair was thrown in Shannon’s face, things have been going downhill rapidly.
While the Twitter feud between Shannon Beador and the other ladies has been brutal, it has also been a point of hype for various media outlets. The headlines surrounding the bitter comments have been entertaining for the Real Housewives of Orange County fans. Beador’s ego was brought into question several times. The ironic part of all of this is Gretchen Rossi and Lizzie Rovsek are the two perpetuating the comments and they are no longer employed at the Bravo network. Both have spoken out in favor of Kelly Dodd, which has no doubt angered Beador. At one point, Lizzie and Shannon would have been considered friends. It looks as though Bravo did attempt to shut down Rossi and Rovsek, but neither has any intention of following the rules set by the network.
A new episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County will be airing Monday night and the comments will likely be flowing. Twitter seems to be the place to battle among reality stars, but Shannon Beador cannot handle the drama. There have been rumors that have indicated she is not mentally as sound as she appears to be, especially after dealing with her husband’s affair. The pressure of the show coupled with the mother-in-law drama and friendship issues have been a lot for Beador. While she is good at putting on a face, things aren’t as easy for her to overcome as she would like for people to believe. Her only recourse for peace was to approach the Bravo network and ask for a cease-fire to be handed down.
Now that the Twitter feud should be over, Shannon Beador can finally calm down. After everything she has been dealt over the last few years, this is one battle she believes she won.
