Vicki Gunvalson has made it clear that she’s not happy with the way in which Shannon Beador chose to drop both her and Tamra Judge as friends after learning they would not be appearing alongside her on “The Real Housewives of Orange County.”
After Shannon shockingly made amends with Kelly Dodd, who was an enemy of all three of them during season 14, seemingly in an effort to benefit her storyline on the upcoming 15th season of the Bravo reality series, Gunvalson spoke out against her betrayal.
“Shannon, the phone stopped ringing one way. I would call her and text her. And then all the sudden we saw an Instagram. She had Kelly and her fiancé, Rick, over at her house with her new boyfriend John,” Gunvalson recalled during an episode of her podcast, “Whoop It Up with Vicki” earlier this week.
As fans of the show well know, Gunvalson was quite close to Beador over the past few seasons. So, to see her and Tamra dropped so quickly has been alarming to many.
“I love Shannon. I have a lot of fun with Shannon but I said, ’Do not forget me. If we’re friends, we’re friends. Let’s get together.’ And then she never called me and it hurt my feelings,” Gunvalson explained as she chatted with Hollywood Life’s Lanae Brody.
” I hope Shannon calls me. I’m not going to call her. I miss her. I want the best for her. But you can’t just drop people off like that. We’re still people. We still have feelings,” Gunvalson noted.
In addition to cutting her and Judge off with no explanation regarding why she chose to do so, Beador is supposedly “puffing her chest” at Gunvalson because she wasn’t demoted like her and Judge were ahead of the show’s 15th season.
“Now she’s puffing her chest too, going, ‘I’m on. You’re not.’ And I don’t want anybody rubbing that in my face. I want to say to her, like, ‘Talk to me in 14 years and see how you’re doing,’” Gunvalson said.
Gunvalson and Judge both revealed that they would not be taking on part-time positions on “The Real Housewives of Orange County” season 15 in January. As fans will recall, the two women were a major drawing point in the years leading up to their exits and many have been left in shock by their departures.
“The Real Housewives of Orange County” season 15 is expected to air on Bravo sometime later this year but a premiere date has not yet been announced.
