Shannon Beador Slams Tamra Judge “Tamra’s A Pot Stirrer”

Posted on Aug 26 2014 - 2:17pm by Avigail


The claws came out during the first installment of the “Real Housewives of Orange County reunion last night. Host Andy Cohen began the episode by stirring the pot, showing clips of Eddie reminiscing on Lizzie’s well-endowed breasts and the Kentucky Fried Tits comment.

Once again, Shannon Beador came under fire from Tamra Judge (and Heather) during the  reunion. Clearly, the women’s motives were to bring her down all season.

Opening up in her new Bravo blog, Shannon addresses Tamra’s shady remarks and Heather Dubrow’s half-hearted apology.

“Tamra was absolutely a “pot stirrer” this season. She went back and forth between Heather and I at many different points. It doesn’t matter what excuse Tamra gives for going to Heather with information about David’s email, I do not believe that she betrayed my trust because she was looking out for my best interest. It was never in my best interest for Heather to know anything about the short argument I had with my husband or the email that he sent me. I am tired of Tamra insinuating that I am a “liar”, “crazy,” and have a “drinking problem.”  I don’t use alcohol as an excuse for forgetting things this season — but Tamra has on more than one occasion. Tamra insinuates that I am “crazy” because I had one outburst at Lizzie’s party, yet Tamra can scream over and over again. And what is truly troublesome to me is that she swears on her children that she never said Terry wanted to “take the Beadors down” when Vicki confirmed that she actually did say it.”

Shannon, clashed with Heather throughout the season, and during the reunion, the co-stars once again came to blows over their fractured friendship.

“Heather apologized to me numerous times in this episode, which might give for hope for a future relationship with her. The problem I have is that the apologies came with a “but” or some sort of excuse attached to it. Heather said that she felt “picked on” by Vicki and Tamra to explain some of her behavior towards me. If she felt “isolated from everyone,” why didn’t she take the advice that she has repeated multiple times this season and “go to the source”? I never heard the theory of being “ridiculous, sensitive, and prickly” when I had a sit down meeting with Heather to clear the air. Heather wrote in a blog that I had an “outburst” at Javier’s that was “scary.” As I tried to clarify what she meant, Heather said that “in her mind” things were “bigger than they were”, so apparently that made everything acceptable when she apologized.”

Shannon believes Heather had an agenda to malign her character.

“I believe that Heather had some sort of agenda with me in different parts of the season. On multiple occasions, she constantly repeated the same term to “describe” my character –“scary angry” and “yelling” at the forefront. And now, six months after Heather’s repeated belief that I “yelled” at her at my Christmas party, she confirms that I did NOT yell and that it was a “misfortunate choice of words” (a “misfortunate choice of words” that was used over and over again. . .). It is bizarre to me that Heather believes she can deliver what I consider to be a qualified apology and expect instantaneous forgiveness. I just wanted a moment to process and understand it all. I wish it had been that easy for me when I apologized to her continuously throughout the season. Double standard.”

    Shannon and David cane out with the decision to move on. terry and Heather clearly had a agenda and it was taking them down and it backfired..

    Tamra is a piece of shit.

    • Trippinhhard

      She knows it too.. She trying single handled to SAVE THE OC.
      she’s worse than a piece of shit.

      • RonnieIsBack

        When she just should admit that she is the reason the OC is sinking…

    Shannon is spot on!! Tamra is a sh*t stirrer, back stabber, and fair weather friend. Tamra screamed last night at Vicky and the preview for part 2 shows her screaming “F*ck you!”
    Heather should take note. Now THAT is what real screaming and yelling is. Replaying the scene from the Christmas party last night, it is clear Shannon did not YELL at Heather as Heather vehemently declared over and over again throughout the season. As much as I cannot stand Tamra and her mean girl personality, I find Heather Dubrow to be even more offensive in a much more insidious way. She purports herself to be a lady but she is just as much a mean girl as Tamra. No wonder the two of them are now allies.
    She can deny it all she wants, Heather did throw Shannon out of her house. Again, Shannon is right in saying Heather is holding onto her semantics game because that is exactly the game Heather is playing. She just doesn’t get that in Shannon, she has met someone who isn’t willing to play along and allow her to do what she probably does with others. Heather is very good with her comebacks and her acid retorts. Shannon isn’t buying into it and sticking to her guns so Heather just keeps hitting back. The problem with that though is just because you keep repeating the same thing over and over again doesn’t make it the truth.
    Heather’s very weak apologies (must run in the family because Terry’s barely there explanations and “apologies” were lame too) that are laced with poor excuses would be unacceptable to me too. Heather’s blog “explaining” all this is a joke. I don’t blame Shannon and David at all for feeling like there is a double standard going on here. Heather and Terry Dubrow are self-appointed judge and jury living in their own world throwing their money around and using their status as a pass for their behavior. Money does not give anyone the excuse to treat people so poorly. I still can’t get over Terry calling David a “penis” on camera. One of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard. . . from anyone. . .anywhere. . . .my entire life. NOTHING could ever explain that away for me. And on top of it all, he feels he owes no apology. Now THAT is low class!!!!

    How about Heather’s dress last night? And she was worried about wearing an ugly Christmas sweater? And Tamra has to stop with the botox. She’s starting to look like Cruella DeVille but blonde.

    Nothing’s happened that wasn’t expected. Right now, Shannon’s basking in the glow of being ‘favored child’. Next season or so, the honeymoon will be SOOOOOO over, control freak Granny PigFace will have a new sheep to manipulate.

    Honeymoon over.

    • RonnieIsBack

      True but right now I am loving it…

    • Wendy Owen

      LOL!!! Granny PigFace!!!!!! Ow, my sides…..

    After reading various blog articles on various sites for any RHO franchise show, it seems like the same old Sh*t happens on any show, at any time, for each of them.
    This just affirms the reason why I don’t tune in to Bravo anymore. Why would I want to watch TV shows like this one, that keeps arranging the same kind of stupidness, on any and all of them, on a repeated basis.
    But, to be sure, I will watch any show that films any part of the Federal sentencing for the Giudice Convicted Felon Stool Pigeons, and that’s a fact!

    Shannon has to be my all time favorite clueless nitwit of reality TV! I’m still shaking my head wondering how, how, how she could think that David’s email was a secret when SHE SAID IT ON CAMERA!!! ROTFLMFAO!!! Obviously, David did not get a prenup, so he’s stuck with her for a long, long, long time. 😉
