Sunday's Season 13 reunion conclusion was a legitimate scream-fest, and Gina led the pack.
Ugh, we're exhausted. The "Real Housewives of Orange County" cannot seem to let things go.
Sunday's reunion conclusion took us around and around the same issues these women have been discussing since the season began. Tamra Judge is tired of her one-way friendship with Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd is still pissed at Emily Simpson for the way her husband "attacked" her, and Vicki Gunvalson is still at odds with Kelly over the whole double-date fiasco.
We literally refuse to recap any of the aforementioned drama because, quite frankly, we're sick of it. But one thing that stuck out to us on Sunday night was when Gina Kirschenheiter called Shannon "an open book of bullshit."
The insult was hurled as the two women discussed that troubling conversation that reopened a wound for Shannon and Tamra, and caused a major rift between Tamra and Gina.
On Sunday night, Gina claimed Shannon called her when the cameras weren't rolling and said, "I have a history of not remembering things, and I'm in a custody case and I'm afraid that I'm gonna lose my children. I wanna know what was said."
Gina said she "felt bad" for Shannon and told her what the other women had said about her in Jamaica (she drinks too much, she's mentally unstable, she may need medication, etc.). Gina reiterated that she never used Tamra's name (she didn't, but Shannon assumed). Gina also said she told Shannon that she would be bringing up their conversation to Tamra but that Shannon begged her not to.
Andy Cohen stepped in and asked Shannon point blank if that was true. She said it wasn't.
"Yes, you did! You're lying!" Gina shouted. "Maybe it's your selective memory? All I know is that you told me you were gonna lose your kids, and I felt bad for you and told you what was said."
Shannon maintained she didn't tell Gina she was going to lose her kids. "I was in the middle of a divorce. There was no custody issue then!" she shouted. "I'm going through a custody issue now. Don't put words in my mouth!"
"DON'T SAY WORDS! YOU ARE AN OPEN BOOK OF BULLSHIT!" Gina hurled across the room. "IT IS RIDICULOUS! PAGES AND PAGES! NOBODY WANTS TO READ IT ANYMORE!"
"I was just trying to help you!" she added. "All your friends talked about you being mentally ill on that trip."
In comes Vicki: "Depression is not a mental illness." Ummmmm, it definitely is? Kelly added, "Everybody copes differently in a divorce."
When Tamra brought up that Gina probably shouldn't have brought up the topic when Shannon was home alone recovering from eye surgery, Gina agreed -- and her tone changed ever so slightly. "I am sorry I brought it up. Shannon, I promise you I feel bad for you. I really do. And I promise you, on a level, I understand what you're going through."
With tears in her eyes, she continued, "I'm sorry. I'm really not trying to make a problem for anybody, and anybody who knows me knows I don't go with malice in my heart. I feel terrible for you and what you're going through. I'm going through it, too. It sucks. I promise you. I got my heart broken, too, okay? In my heart, at the time, I was just checking in. Looking back on it now, I think it was bad timing."
Shannon quietly replied, "I accept your apology."
Let's hope the ladies find some new material before next season!
