Does Vicki Gunvalson really know some secret about Shannon Beador’s marriage to David Beador? On the latest The Real Housewives of Orange County episode, Vicki threatened to spill the beans about Shannon’s marriage. According to Vicki, when she and Shannon were friends, Shannon confided in her regarding her marriage to David. Vicki made it clear that while she has since kept Shannon’s marriage secret safe, she may just tell the secret if Shannon continues to treat her poorly. Shannon immediately called Vicki’s bluff, saying that Vicki knows nothing about her marriage that she hasn’t shared with people already. Shannon told co-stars Tamra Judge and Meghan King Edmonds that Vicki is just making an empty threat.
Yet according to Kelly Dodd, there really is a secret and Vicki has actually talked about it before. In her latest Bravo blog, Kelly, when talking about the argument between Vicki and Shannon at Meghan’s store opening party, said that Vicki had already told her Shannon’s secret. Kelly added that viewers will see in upcoming episodes how Vicki bringing up Shannon’s marriage makes things within the group get out of hand.
“Vicki escalated the situation when she threatened to reveal the secret Shannon had confided in her. Although, by now, it isn’t much of a secret because Vicki had already told me. You’ll have to stay tuned to see how bringing up Shannon’s secret makes things spiral out of control.”
As the latest episode aired, Shannon tweeted that had she known that Vicki would threaten her with more lies, she never would have made an effort with her.
In another tweet, Shannon said that viewers will see how Vicki tries to destroy her family.
In response to a viewer who described Vicki as “shady” and said that she would never trust her, Shannon said that she doesn’t and won’t trust Vicki after this season.
As viewers saw on the latest The Real Housewives of Orange County episode, Shannon Beador approached Vicki Gunvalson at Meghan’s store party. Shannon mentioned the message that she left for Vicki in regards to her sand dune accident and injury. Shannon, who didn’t immediately call Vicki or visit her in the hospital upon hearing about the accident, explained that she didn’t initially realize how seriously Vicki was hurt and wishes that Vicki acknowledged her message. Vicki made it clear that she thought that Shannon left that message weeks after the accident not out of genuine concern but just to save face with the other women.
“You messed up,” Vicki told Shannon.
Things quickly escalated between the two women. Shannon, apparently wanting to point out something bad that Vicki has done, said that she wasn’t going to bring up what Vicki has been saying about David. Vicki reminded Shannon that David, at Shannon’s ’70s-themed party, called her a pig and a “disgusting piece of s**t.” When Shannon said that David was provoked after Vicki first threw out an insult about her, Vicki said that David’s a liar and so is Shannon. When Shannon asked Vicki what she has lied about, Vicki gave her a knowing look.
After Vicki left with Kelly Dodd, Shannon told Meghan King Edmonds and Tamra Judge that she hasn’t lied. When Tamra asked Shannon if Vicki knows something about her, Shannon said absolutely not. When Meghan chimed in that it seems that Shannon and Vicki know something about one another, Shannon pointed out that Vicki lied about her ex, Brooks Ayers, having cancer.
In her confessional interview, Vicki threatened to tell something that Shannon told her in confidence regarding her marriage if Shannon continues to yell at her.
“I have secrets of Shannon that she told me in confidence about her relationship with David. And I put it in a box and put the padlock on and kind of, I have the key hidden. However, she keeps pushing at me and being mean to me, I might bring out the little secret she doesn’t want anyone to know.”
In her own confessional interview, Shannon challenged Vicki.
“I am not going to allow Vicki to threaten me with something that she refuses to expose. Are you bluffing me Vicki? You trying to threaten me with some empty threat? ‘Cause I haven’t lied.”
As the episode aired, Shannon tweeted a warning to Kelly, who became friends with Vicki at the beginning of the season and has since remained friends with her. Shannon re-tweeted a viewer’s tweet that warned Kelly that when Vicki gets mad at her, she’ll threaten to tell her secrets too.
“@Bravo_RHOC Kelly, you see how @vgunvalson is treating @ShannonBeador, when she gets angry, she’ll start blabbing all of ur s**t too.”
Shannon also re-tweeted a tweet from Andy Cohen’s talk show Watch What Happens Live, which asked viewers if they think Vicki really has “dirt” on Shannon. The poll results show that the majority of viewers don’t believe Vicki.
In her own blog post, Shannon maintained that Vicki doesn’t know something harmful about her marriage and is just lying again.
“I do not lie and I have not lied. She is making something up…again. And I was blown away at her threats to me during her interview commentary. She claims to have secrets about my marriage and that is a joke. I am an open book that let everyone into a humiliating affair last year. We all know Vicki has the reputation of lying and deflection. To hear Donn [Vicki’s ex-husband] say that Vicki is a ‘lying sack of dog s***’ in the flashback kind of says it all.”
Prior to the episode airing, Vicki posted an ad for an event that she’ll be appearing at soon. Vicki’s Instagram post received a lot of comments about what happened on the latest episode.
In response to a viewer who criticized her behavior towards Shannon, Vicki said that she’s not trying to hurt Shannon or her family, but is just tired of Shannon trying to hurt her and her own family.
“vickigunvalson: @dhardeman139 I have no desire to hurt her or her family, what I am tired is her trying to hurt me and my family!!!”
In response to another viewer who called accused Vicki of making up Shannon’s marriage secret, Vicki teased that there is a lot that viewers don’t know and to stay tuned.
“vickigunvalson: @mandysmith210 There is a lot you don’t know. Stay tuned.”
In her latest Bravo blog, Vicki said that she knows something “very hurtful” about the Beadors.
“The truth of the matter is, I know something that is very hurtful about the Beadors which she has lied about.”
If Shannon Beador’s supposed marriage secret doesn’t come out sometime during the rest of the season, it’ll surely be brought up at the Season 11 The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion show. Will Vicki spill the beans then? As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Vicki last month posted a video clip of her and Kelly Dodd out shopping for reunion show dresses. Both Vicki and Kelly said that they’re ready and aren’t afraid of the other women.
“Bring it!” Vicki challenged.
