The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11 finale, titled “Vicious Lies and Broken Ties,” airs Monday, October 31 on Bravo. According to the latest spoilers and official synopsis, Episode 18 will focus on the victory party Shannon Beador threw Tamra Judge for winning her first fitness competition. The RHOC finale, however, will not be complete without a huge catfight. Based on the promo, Tamra, Shannon, and Heather Dubrow will confront their co-star Vicki Gunvalson for spreading those vicious rumors about them and their husbands.
In the last episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11, Kelly Dodd surprised everyone when she started spilling “secrets” about her co-stars. According to her, Vicki claimed that Shannon’s husband, David Beador, was physically abusing her at one point. Vicki also allegedly accused Tamra’s husband, Eddie, of being gay and unfaithful.
Vicki never denied telling Kelly about Shannon and Tamra’s secret. The RHOC star, however, insisted that she told the newcomer everything in confidence, thinking that she will never share it with the group. Briana Culberson, Vicki’s daughter, later insinuated that her mom might have told Kelly everything as a way to get back at Shannon and Tamra.
“My mom’s a very dirty fighter. If you make fun of her or if you try to tear her down she’s gonna do it worse, even if its something that’s not even true. She shouldn’t have told anybody that Eddie’s gay if she didn’t want it to come out.”
Elsewhere in the latest Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11 episode, Kelly confronted Vicki and asked why she “abandoned” her when the RHOC cast was ganging up on her. Although Vicki apologized, she explained that she was trying to mend fences and did not want to get on anyone’s bad side.
“I can see how you felt abandoned but I was in a place of just trying to mend fences because we all do hangout together. I don’t want to be excluded. I don’t want you to be excluded. I want us all to have a great time together,” she told Kelly.
It did not take long for Vicki and Kelly to work through their problems and patch things up. Kelly also reached out to Tamra and asked for her forgiveness. She pointed out that Heather was the one to blame for all the drama. Tamra accepted Kelly’s apology but made plans with the rest of the RHOC cast to confront her and Vicki at Shannon’s party later.
While Vicki and Shannon both came to show their support for Tamra at the competition, they acted like they didn’t know each other the whole time. Shannon, however, ended up confronting Vicki at the party.
“I realized that I was back in bed with the devil when you were saying things about me,” Shannon said.
“I’m not going to be accused of lying,” Vicki fired back.
On her Bravo blog, Shannon Beador insisted that her husband never abused her. The Real Housewives of Orange County star explained that although she confided in Vicki two years ago, she never once said that her husband “beat” her. She also felt devastated that Vicki would make such “horrible allegations” against David, which some people would undoubtedly think is true. Shannon added that no one should believe someone like Vicki, who has a “history of deception.”
“At this point, my ties to Vicki are severed forever. She made up one of the most unconscionable lies possible about my husband and I still can’t understand how a person can be that evil.”
