‘Real Housewives of Orange County’ Reunion Recap: Shannon Insists Vicki Was In On Cancer Scam, Accuses Kelly Of Being A Mistress

The cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County did not hold back during Part 1 of the Season 11 Reunion special. Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Heather Dubrow, Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, and Meghan King Edmonds all seemed to be waiting for this perfect opportunity to lash out at their RHOC co-stars.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11 reunion started with Andy Cohen asking Vicki Gunvalson about her “eye job.” The RHOC veteran did not only admit to having surgery to reshape her eyes but revealed that she did it while they were filming the season, and none of her co-stars even noticed.


Next, Andy asked Vicki about her ex-boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, to which she said that if she could turn back time, she would have been more “Meghan-ish” and investigated more about the situation. She regretted how Brooks made a fool out of her.

“But why do you keep saying, after all this has happened, that you couldn’t wait to die because you wanted to go to heaven to be with Brooks again?” Heather asked.

Vicki admitted that there were times when she misses her ex-boyfriend. She added that her Real Housewives of County stars were in no position to judge her because they did not know Brooks like she knew him. Although Vicki insisted that she was not in on the cancer scam with Brooks, Shannon Beador insisted that Vicki knew about it all along. She even claimed that Vicki admitted lying and was now trying to cover it up again.

“I understand that he lied to her but I am steadfast in my belief that she knew about it prior to filming last season because you told me a lie and you admitted that that was a lie. Why do we need to get into that again?” Shannon told Vicki.

“That is not true. That I lied on the cancer scam? Don’t go there,” Vicki said.

Shannon later revealed that she has already forgiven Vicki. She, however, explained that forgiving someone doesn’t mean she has to let them back in her life.

“Then get off my show. You don’t like me? Get off my show. Bye, Felicia. Go!” Vicki said.


Elsewhere in The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11 reunion, newcomer Kelly Dodd accused Tamra Judge of being “too faced.” She said that the Tamra always acted nice to her but acted differently behind closed doors.

“I was nice to you until I couldn’t put up with your crap anymore,” Tamra said.

The two Real Housewives of Orange County stars also lashed at each other after Kelly revealed that her relationship with her husband, Michael, who was diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder, has gotten better.

“I know what its like to live with a narcissist. They make your life miserable and they don’t change and they don’t see their behavior. They just continue and continue so to say that he was diagnosed as being a narcissist and now everything’s fabulous that doesn’t make sense to me,” Tamra said.

“Do you have a PhD in psychology?” Kelly fired back.


Kelly was definitely on the roll during The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11 reunion with Andy even calling her the “most polarizing Housewife” fans saw on the show. The RHOC newcomer confronted Shannon Beador about throwing a party to set her up. Shannon insisted that it was not her intention but admitted that after seeing the episode, it actually looked like her friends were ganging up on Kelly. Instead of stopping Nina and Jaci, Kelly was upset that Shannon was more interested in hearing gossip and stirring drama.

Andy also asked Shannon why she accused Kelly of cheating on her husband. Shannon revealed that the wife of the man Kelly was seeing, when she and Michael separated, showed her phone records proving that she had been cheated on.

“When she started saying this on the show her family became damaged. You need to stop saying that you didn’t ruin a marriage because you did. She showed me phone records, when she found out about the affair. You were having an affair and you broke up their family,” Shannon told Kelly.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11 Reunion Part 2 airs Monday, Nov. 14 on Bravo.
