Vicki Gunvalson claims Shannon Beador was obsessed with disliking Kelly Dodd before the two of them made amends earlier this year amid filming on the 15th season of “The Real Housewives of Orange County.”
During an interview with CELEB magazine on October 22, Vicki, who announced she was leaving the Bravo reality series in January with a statement on Instagram, Vicki shut down Kelly’s claims of trash-talking her to Shannon.
“Kelly claiming that Tamra and I were in Shannon’s head so that Shannon would not like Kelly is an outright lie,” Vicki began.

According to Vicki, Shannon disliked Kelly for her own reasons and wouldn’t give her a chance even when Vicki and Kelly were friends.
“We all disliked Kelly and if anyone knows Shannon, they know that she is not one to hold her tongue. She’s an obsessive person and I can assure you she obsessed over her dislike of Kelly- even when I was friends with Kelly,” Vicki alleged.
As fans may know, Vicki and Kelly enjoyed a brief friendship after Kelly joined the show in 2016.

“Let’s not forget Kelly was on my side when I wasn’t even close with Tamra or Shannon and Shannon HATED Kelly back then,” Vicki explained. “Was I somehow filling Shannon’s head then? I think not.”

“If Shannon has any integrity left whatsoever,” Vicki continued, “she will stand up and say the truth is that I did NOT tell her what to say, what to do, or how to feel. If that was true, it doesn’t say much about Shannon as a person, does it?”
After feuding throughout the 14th season of “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” Kelly and Shannon suddenly made amends as cameras began rolling on the 15th season of the series and have been close ever since.
