“Real Housewives of Orange County” star Shannon Beador says she didn’t know she was being recorded when talking about the Kelly Dodd “Train” rumor, and denying she is a hypocrite.
Fans have been ripping Beador and Tamra Judge for talking about co-star Dodd during this weeks episode. They have been calling her a hypocrite for saying during her confessionals the “Train” rumor about Dodd should not be repeated, only to be caught discussing it in a car ride with Judge.
Beador took to social media writing, “I refused to say anything until the cameras were off and no one was mic’d. And I made sure no one had a microphone on them when we got into the car. What I didn’t know is that there was still audio in the car after our dinner. #truth #notahypocrite #goodfriend#rhoc ❤️”
One fan commented, “That’s a lie” to which Beador responded, “Nope. No one was mic’d Didn’t know the car still had audio. I know my reality…”
The dispute centers around Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd battling it out over comments Vicki made about Kelly. Vicki originally made thinly veiled accusations of cocaine use against Kelly during last seasons’ reunion. Kelly has denied the accusations and called Vicki a liar.
On this season, Vicki has been pushing the idea she knows more about Kelly than the drug accusation. She brought up knowing more about Kelly at a dinner, which caused Tamra Judge to ask Vicki if she was talking about the “train”.
The ladies left the dinner and Tamra, Shannon and Gina Kirschenheiter got into a SUV to drive them away.
In the car ride audio was recorded showing Tamra and Shannon discussing the “Train” comment. Both said they heard the same rumor about Kelly participating in a “Train”, which to put lightly, is when someone has sex with multiple partners one after the other.
During the ride, you can hear Judge say the rumor was “eight guys pulled a train on Kelly”. In her confessional, Beador continued to push that the rumor should not be talked about but then was heard talking in length about it in the car.
Fans have been calling her out and accusing Tamra and Shannon of conspiring with Vicki to trash Kelly.
One fan wrote, “This vile and disgusting act was a planned attack by Vicki and Tamra. They are both absolutely evil. I wish you would see that, and Tres Amigas would be a thing of the past! History WILL repeat itself though. Won’t be long before you’re the victim of Vicki’s and/or Tamra’s.”

Another commented, “But you remain a member of Tres Amigas? Not okay with that. Kind of despicable – all of it. #icky”.
All this and the season is only on episode 4.
But you remain a member of Tres Amigas? Not okay with that. Kind of despicable – all of it. #icky
