In a conversation with Kelly Dodd, Shannon Beador throws major shade at the newest Housewives of Orange County.
On Monday's episode of "The Real Housewives of Orange County," Shannon invited all the ladies to her house for a celebratory dinner post-QVC appearance. Gina told Emily she was hesitant to go given her track record with Shannon (Remember when Gina called Shannon a pot-stirrer for letting Kelly Dodd go off on Emily at Tamra Judge's housewarming party? There was also that time Gina snapped at Shannon because she felt Shannon was insinuating that marriage was all about money. Good times.), but she decided to go anyway.
Gina tried desperately to get on Shannon's good side, but it was to no avail. The small talk wasn't working, so she took her place on the couch with the other women. The idea of a girls trip came up, and as the ladies were joyfully deciding on a destination (Jamaica won the final vote), Gina broke down in tears. The last tropical vacation she was supposed to go on was with her estranged husband, Matt, so she felt "weird" about the whole thing.
While Kelly, Tamra, Emily and Vicki Gunvalson comforted Gina about her impending divorce, Shannon was in the kitchen cooking/eavesdropping. "I'm glad I'm not involved in this," she whispered to herself.
Gina later vented to Kelly about how she felt Shannon had walls up, and Kelly reassured her that once those walls were down, Shannon would give her "100 percent" of herself and her friendship.
That may not be the case.
In a later scene, Shannon and Kelly went to lunch. Shannon haphazardly asked Kelly about "what was going on" with Gina regarding her breakdown.
"She said you are hard to get to know," Kelly said.
"Oh, God help me," Shannon replied with an eye roll.
"I said it wasn't like you and I were the greatest friends right off the bat," Kelly said, to which Shannon replied, "We were pretty much enemies!"
"I like her," Shannon tried to convince Kelly. "She's -- what -- 21 years younger than I am? I don't know how much in common I have with her, but I like her? I like her."
"But I don't know those girls," she continued. "I don't know either of them. My God, if Emily says to me one more time, 'Are we gonna see Fun Shannon tonight?' I'm waitin' for Fun Emily! I haven't seen that yet. Have you? Have you seen Fun Emily? Is there a Fun Emily? There's the Killer [Emily]!" Shannon was referring to the time Kelly went off on Emily because of her "little bitch" husband, and Emily replied by losing her marbles and threatening to "f--king kill" Kelly.
Kelly agreed she hadn't seen "Fun Emily" yet and asked Shannon, "Does she have, like, a bad marriage?"
Shannon -- who was reamed earlier this season for comparing Emily's marriage with Shane to her past marriage with David -- refused to comment.
"All I did was put my marriage onto hers, and then I said, 'Oops, I shouldn't have done that,' and I got my ass handed to me," Shannon told Kelly. "So I'm zippin' this mouth shut. I'm keeping my boundaries."
Shannon later opened up to Bravo cams about her resentments toward Gina, saying, "You know what? In my short experience with Gina, she stirred the pot a few times with me, so it doesn't make me jump for joy and say, 'I really gotta carve some time out to get to know Gina!'"
"The Real Housewives of Orange County" airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
