Shannon Beador will be seen revealing her COVID-19 diagnosis to her co-stars on tomorrow night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Orange County.”
In a sneak peek at the episode shared by E! News on December 29, a number of the ladies, including Braunwyn Windham-Burke, Kelly Dodd, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Elizabeth Vargas, are seen making enchiladas when they receive a phone call from Shannon, who informs the group that she has tested positive, despite the safety precautions that were put into place ahead of filming on season 15.

“You’re missing out,” Kelly tells Shannon after dishing on their cooking extravaganza.
Elizbeth then asks, “How are you feeling?”
“I got a phone call that I am positive,” Shannon replies.
Right away, the “Real Housewives of Orange County” cast is taken aback as Braunwyn realizes that she was recently with Shannon at her Newport Beach home.
“Oh f*ck! I was just at her house,” Braunwyn tells the cameras in a cast confessional as a throwback scene features her pulling down her mask while enjoying Shannon’s backyard.

“I’ve just had a really sh*tty, sh*tty afternoon,” Shannon continues as Kelly also points out that she was “just with her.”
“Am I going to get it?” Kelly asks in a confessional scene of her own.
Shannon goes on to reveal that her three daughters, all of whom also tested positive for the virus months ago, were at home with her at the time while her boyfriend, John Janssen, was staying away.
“John is still negative so we had to separate,” she explains.

“You know, that adds another layer to it because we’re together everyday so to think that we won’t be together for a few weeks, that’s hard too. It sucks,” Shannon continues.
“I’ve been so freaking careful and so healthy. Now I’m scared because is it going to go to my lungs? I don’t know.”
In response to the news, Kelly tells her cast mate she should “get over it” before joking that she’s “been asking for it and nothing.”
“I have totally been asking for it,” she admitted.

“This is why I took it ‘serious’ but I was going shopping, I was going to places and I’m sorry if I don’t want to bring it over to your house, and she f*cking has it,” Gina tells her co-stars after Shannon hangs up.
“Like, for a certain population of people, it’s scary. If she has it, like, I hope it doesn’t get any worse… but she could call us tomorrow, and she could be f*cking gone.”
