Braunwyn Windham-Burke was accused of offering Shannon Beador‘s daughter, Stella Beador, cocaine earlier this week but according to the recently aired first half of the “Real Housewives of Orange County,” she never actually named any specific drug during her alleged conversation with the teen.
Before the airing, an insider spoke to PEOPLE magazine, insisting that Braunwyn “did not offer Shannon’s daughter cocaine.”
“There is an allegation that Shannon makes during part one of the [season 15] reunion. From the trailer, you can see that Braunwyn instantly took accountability for her actions,” the insider added.
Shannon Beador’s Role As A Mom Forced Her To Come Forward Against Braunwyn Windham-Burke
In a clip from last night’s show shared on Instagram, Shannon was seen confronting Braunwyn about the conversation she had with her daughter after host Andy Cohen asked the ladies if they were aware that she was suffering from a drinking problem prior to coming forward as an alcoholic during the premiere episode.
“I mean, John and I spent a lot of time with Sean and Braunwyn not this last summer, but the summer before. And I don’t know whether I was going to say this today but as a mother, I’m going to,” Shannon began.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke Told Stella Beador She Could Connect Her With The ‘Good Stuff’
As Shannon continued on in her revelation about Braunwyn and Stella’s conversation, the mother of three accused her co-star of attempting to hook Stella up with the “good stuff,” but didn’t say what the “good stuff” actually was.
“When my daughter was 14-years-old at her very first beach barbecue, you went up to her and said, ‘Stella, if you want the good stuff, text me,’” Shannon recalled.
Although using the term “good stuff” was certainly a questionable decision for Braunywn, it is unfair to accuse her of offering drugs to the teen as that was never confirmed.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke Admits She Was Drinking At The Time
In a response to the rumors claiming she offered Stella cocaine, Braunwyn shared a comment with a fan on Instagram on Tuesday.
“Please tell me Shannon is lying about her child,” the fan had written.
In response, Braunwyn admitted that their conversation was unclear.
“I honestly have no idea. I was drinking at the time,” she explained. “I’ve heard from her what happened and made amends. I’ve since heard a very different version of what happened which isn’t at all what she said from someone I trust though.”
Braunwyn may not have said the word cocaine during her conversation with Stella but her cast mates were still taken aback at Shannon’s shocking reveal. In fact, new cast member Elizabeth Vargas slammed her behavior as “horrific” after learning what she said to Stella.
To see more of Braunwyn and her cast mates, don’t miss the second half of the “Real Housewives of Orange County” season 15 reunion special, which is set to air on Bravo next Wednesday, January 27, at 9/8c.
