Shannon Beador has become close friends with Tamra Judge over the past couple of months, as they have bonded after their mutual betrayal from Vicki Gunvalson. While Tamra was upset that Vicki may have lied about Brooks Ayers having cancer last year, Shannon was furious that Gunvalson had talked about her husband’s affair with other people, as she had opened up in confidence to her friend. These two have bonded, and Tamra had opened up to Beador about the issues she was dealing with in regards to her daughter Sidney and the custody issues with her ex-husband, Simon Barney.
According to a new Bravo report, Shannon Beador is now revealing why she decided to tell Judge about Kelly Dodd’s comments about her daughter, Sidney. It’s no secret that this custody issue is a sensitive subject for Tamra. When she opened up about it on The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion last year, she broke down in tears because it was such a sensitive subject for her. When she hears other people talking about her custody issue, she flips out.

“But after Kelly consumed a few cocktails, the demeanor of the day drastically changed. Kelly’s sense of humor can be quite juvenile, and all of us were tired of her repeated nose-flicking practical joke,” Shannon Beador explains in her Bravo blog for The Real Housewives of Orange County, sharing that she was shocked at how quickly Kelly Dodd lost control of herself and her comments after having a few cocktails.

Of course, Beador knows how Dodd will say things to hurt people, as she has been the victim of her harsh comments. Dodd has previously told Shannon that it makes sense that her husband would cheat on her, which was clearly a comment she made just to hurt Shannon. At this point, Beador may have been keeping her distance from Dodd, as she didn’t want to get involved in any form of drama. But when she heard Kelly make a comment about Judge’s daughter, Shannon Beador knew she had to say something.

“As we left the pub to go shopping, I still tried to have a conversation with Kelly to bring everyone back together on the way to the bus. And then she made a horrendous comment about Tamra and her oldest daughter. I am very close to Tamra and know the devastation she has been suffered in the last two years,” Shannon Beador points out in her Bravo blog, revealing that Kelly’s comment was just meant to be hurtful and not productive.

“I quickly told Kelly that her comment was hurtful and inappropriate. After we entered the store, Tamra asked me what Kelly and I were talking about on the way to the bus. I am not a liar, so I told her the comment made by Kelly. I know I will receive backlash from this, so I will say that if the tables were turned, I would absolutely want to hear what was said about me and I know that Tamra feels the same way,” Shannon Beador points out, sharing that she wanted to share the news with Tamra, because they are friends and she’s not a liar.

Of course, some people may have been reminded of Dorinda Medley, who was clearly labeled a pot-stirrer on The Real Housewives of New York on this past season of the show because she kept relaying information that she knew would cause an uproar. But it sounds like Beador only shared the news because they are friends and she didn’t want Judge to be in the dark about what had been said.
What do you think of Shannon Beador’s decision to share the news with her Real Housewives of Orange County co-star? Do you think she made the right decision?
