Following the conclusion of the two-part reunion special for season 15 last month, Beador appeared on Jeff Lewis‘ radio show, “Jeff Lewis Live,” where she put the mother of seven on blast for suggesting that she is an alcoholic and shared some new details in regard to Windham-Burke’s past antics with booze.
Shannon Beador Accused Braunwyn Windham-Burke Of Offering Drugs To Her Child At The ‘RHOC’ Reunion
After Lewis asked Beador why she called Windham-Burke out during the taping for allegedly offering drugs to her then-14-year-old daughter, Stella Beador, Beador explained why she refused to stay silent about what her cast mate had supposedly done.
“I’ll tell you why I did because she had the audacity to sit there at the reunion. And Andy [Cohen] went around and ask every person ‘do you think Shannon has a drinking problem?’ Everyone said no. And then Braunwyn, you know, the saint of all saints, knowing who an alcoholic isn’t said, yes you are,” Beador recalled, via All About the Real Housewives.

“And you know, my response is, and you’re basing that on all the times we were drinking together. When you passed out in my kids’ bed, I had to call Sean [Burke] and say, I’m putting her in a car right now,” Beador continued.
According to Beador, Windham-Burke chose to label her an alcoholic based solely on the times they spent drinking together, not on her actual life.
“That’s damaging for me. I mean, I’m working super hard on a brand,” Beador shared.
Shannon Beador Let Loose Amid The Coronavirus Pandemic
Beador went on to say that while she did allow herself to act out amid the pandemic in terms of her eating and drinking habits, that doesn’t define who she is as a person.
“I did let myself go during COVID and I’m not proud of it, but 2021 is the year of the glow up. And I’m going to change all of that, but don’t put a label on me as an alcoholic. Do I go out and have fun? Yes, I do,” she explained.
As fans may have seen, Windham-Burke wasn’t the first “Real Housewives of Orange County” cast member to call Beador out about her drinking.

“It comes up every single season. It’s heartbreaking. I did [try to talk to her about it], and I think some of the girls on the current cast have done it as well, and she doesn’t want to hear it. I talked to Braunwyn [Windham-Burke] about it, and Braunwyn’s like, ‘Until she admits it, she’s never going to change,’” Judge stated.
