Vicki Gunvalson shut down Shannon Beador last night on the Real Housewives of Orange Country reunion. It was just part one of the big event, but it was filled with insults and shade. Gunvalson has finally had enough from the ladies. She has been the punching bag for two seasons now, and it isn’t going to happen any longer. Besides being the OG of the OC, there have been some real life issues weighing her down. After 11 years on the show, Gunvalson is ready to put her foot down and have fun doing what she loves.
Fans were unsure how Vicki Gunvalson would act during the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion. Last season she was a mess and pretty much shut down every question that was asked about Brooks Ayers. This time, things were handled well, and she served up a dose of reality to her frenemies. According to All About the Tea, Vicki Gunvalson told Shannon Beador to get off her show. It was the quote of the night and has sparked memes across social media. She actually got several positive tweets about how she handled Beador. Gunvalson was tired of hearing the same song from Shannon, and she shut her down.
The beef between Vicki Gunvalson and her co-stars was the focus of last season. It appeared that fences were mended while the ladies were in Ireland but that was just the calm before the storm. Everything went downhill after the ladies were drinking at a pub and there was no coming back from any of it. Gunvalson divulged some information about Shannon Beador to Kelly Dodd, and it was revealed in a moment of anger. While Beador denies the allegations Gunvalson put out there, fans are torn on whom they believe. As the reunion continues, more information will be brought to light.
Kelly Dodd really took a beating this season for standing with Vicki Gunvalson this season. She came on board as Meghan Edmonds’ friend and ended up switching sides once she met Gunvalson. Dodd was unimpressed when the ladies initially trashed Vicki and decided to get to know her first before jumping on the judgment bandwagon. This caused many issues for her with the other ladies, including several setups throughout the season. Despite some trying times between Dodd and Gunvalson, the two remain friends and will likely return for another season of the Real Housewives of Orange County.
There is so much more to come with Vicki Gunvalson and the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion. She has been pretty calm all season long, even as Twitter was blowing up with rude comments from some former housewives and Shannon Beador. Gunvalson has done some shady things like repeating what she insists happened in the Beador household but also has tried to redeem herself for the cancer scandal. Brooks Ayers wrecked her life and her friendships, and she was determined to get them back. Unfortunately, it appears that the ladies and Gunvalson will not be able to mend things.
Cast news has yet to be confirmed, but it sounds like Vicki Gunvalson will be back. Kelly Dodd was reportedly asked back though it is unconfirmed if she accepted. Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, and Heather Dubrow have not talked about their return status though it has been hinted that Beador may be exiting over the rumors of spousal abuse. Meghan Edmonds will not be returning as she is dedicating her time to raising her baby girl who will be arriving in the next couple of weeks. One thing remains true regardless, Vicki Gunvalson will always be part of the OC.
