  • Bluefire

    Time for her to go and get herself together off TV!

    • motherall

      If that was the criteria then Tamra should have left first, then Kelly, then Vicki. And had they done that Shannon would be a much happier person

      • Bluefire

        I don’t think Tamra acts like Shannon or the rest of them. Shannon isn’t changing at all!!

  • Bryan
    • Supatall2u

      Heart attack waiting to happen but what a yummy way to go!!

      • Bryan
        • Bryan

          some kind of ridiculous chicken pizza sandwich LOL

        • Jennymckitty

          I need a vomit emoji.

          • Bryan

            I know, can you believe some clown thinks this mess appetizing, it could be, first grill the chicken breast with a modicum of marinara and cheese and possibly some nice sourdough bread, but not this ridiculousness

          • SassyMcAsspants

            Yup! 🤢

          • Minx

            I know, right?

        • boredatwork

          wtf?

          That looks revolting. Can’t even see the ingredients properly. And all the same colour. Only if I were drunk and stoned at the same time and there was nothing else.

          • Bryan

            There are those people who watch shows like Epic Meal Time and pretend they can eat several of those, its just a ridiculous thing

    • wellWellwell
    • we”r”family

      But what would the sugar high do to her state of mind?

      • Bryan

        She doesn’t have one

    • Minx

      Bryan,
      You are Deliciously Evil!
      😸
      😹

      • Bryan

        I know =)

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      Oh, you are so wrong for that!!😈
      My nieces have started frying snickers & twinkies, etc. I told them to give me a warning when they are, so I can stay home.

      • Bryan

        Loon wants those too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!!

        • BetteDavisEyez1

          What is with this craze?!? As if ordinary Snickers weren’t decadent enough. They need to be fried?!? WTF?!?

          • Bryan

            At least they taste good

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            That is truly all that matters. No?!?

          • Bryan

            that all, as long as it taste good

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Yes!! Clogged arteries be damned.

  • Supatall2u

    She really needs to just leave David, get thee to a good therapist so she can learn how NOT to take out her frustrations with David out on everyone else.

    • boredatwork

      she will never. She loves being miserable, and a martyr in her own mind, and she will take him down with her, before she releases either of them out of this misery.

  • She’s obviously off her meds.

    • Minx

      She Needs Meds!
      We All, need Meds after watching her meltdown!

    • MsM

      I don’t think she’s on meds and I don’t think she’d take them either. Unfortunately, people who ascribe to homeopathic medicines often times completely eschew any type of medication – whether they know anything about it or not. It’s the ‘principle of the thing’. (Yes, as a therapist I’ve heard that excuse way more than I’d like to…) Some times a person needs more than candles and an enema up their butt to even out their situation. I think Shannon is in need of some Zoloft stat….

  • Jennymckitty

    I think her mother told her she needed help. Tamara told her. I hope she is seeing someone. She seemed to be in a better space on WWHL when she was on with Jenny.

  • SassyMcAsspants

    Fly back to Lake Crazy, Loon Beador! 🦃

  • RRRobin

    Who on earth finds her entertaining or attractive, Bravo??? Pls eplain

    She makes Vicki look good.

    • MissScarletwithaRevolver

      I wouldn’t go that far.

      • ScrappieONE

        LOL

  • motherall

    I like her and it breaks my heart to see her so unhappy, just as any of us would be after being publicly humiliated. She does need some therapy but she is behaving appropriately for the situation and Bravo directions. Having the other “ladies” be so nasty makes it harder for her but their days will come. And it’s Lydia who keeps saying “i’m done” along with Vicki. Shannon has no dibs on that phrase.

    • ScrappieONE

      Wait are we watching the same show??? Shannon doesn’t say I’m done….. What the what..

      • we”r”family

        Sometimes in the heat of arguments she says I am done….in regards to whatever the situation is.
        I am about done myself with the show. There is no an ounce of fun left.

        • ScrappieONE

          Yes I agree and that what I was trying to write that Shannon does yell “I’m done” all the time…. At least everything she feels she’s losing an argument…. lol

          • pixntrix

            Yep she yells I’m done, Im f-ing done.

      • MsM

        Scrap, hun, she says it all the time! Any time she’s pissed she bellows “I’m Done!!!” and storms off.

        • ScrappieONE

          Yes I know she does… I think how I wrote my comment was misleading…. Shannon says it so much she should start selling T-Shirts with it on it.. .LOL

    • Kirsty Taylor

      I’m afraid I don’t sympathise with her. I would if she chose to get off TV & deal with her issues privately. Instead she chooses to air every shred of dirty laundry & humiliate her 3 daughters, they’re the ones deserving of sympathy!

  • we”r”family

    It is a double edge sword because I assume being on the show gives her an outlet.
    One would hope she would leave the show, and divorce David, find a great psychiatrist. I know she claims she doesn’t believe in divorce. But, her parents’ marriage should of taught her something.
    We are literally watching a woman become unhinged. I keep waiting for folks in white coats with a straight jacket to take her away.

    • Minx

      I agree.
      Watching Shannon Implode is terribly Sad .
      It isn’t even fun, entertaining or amusing..
      It is terribly annoying and it is depressing..

      • Just My Opinion

        Hmmm..if you find this PIG depressing then perhaps you should seek some help

        • MissScarletwithaRevolver

          I don’t think Shannon is a pig. She’s a woman who was used to getting everything she wanted when she wanted it and is now faced with the reality that she cannot control other people. She is annoying and sad but can be redeemed by growing up and changing her mindset and getting healthy. That probably means divorce and rehab.

          Vicki on the other had has a lock on “pig”. One thing Slade got right.

  • MissScarletwithaRevolver

    She does not want David but she doesn’t want anyone else to have him more.

  • Ailish Killian

    She is behaving like a lot of people I know who have been cheated on & yes it is time to stop playing the victim. The husband after being caught will do/say anything to keep his family. Well she ate that up with a spoon & thought she was going to be treated that way forever. It is not realistic.

    • we”r”family

      I don’t understand why she claims she doesn’t believe in divorce. Her own parents divorced while she was in college after years of a very unhappy relationship.
      I never thought she was over the affair.

  • Just My Opinion

    I foresee Shannut taking her own life !! No sane person acts the way she does. She feels everyone is against her and now her buddy Tamrat is beginning to pull away. This is a prescription for disaster !! I just hope she doesn’t take the kids with her !!

    • we”r”family

      I’ve often said that I think she threatens to harm herself a lot and thus David stays.

      • Just My Opinion

        He would be better off letting her do it and be free of LOONEY

        • BetteDavisEyez1

          Wow!!😳

  • Ravello

    I think she stopped taking her psychiatric meds because of the associated weight gain.
    I hate to see anyone make a fool of themselves. Her kids must be so embarrassed.
    She is reality TV gold and will continue indefinitely on OC.

    • we”r”family

      Yes, those poor kids. Mom is unhinged and the world knows.

      • Trippinhhard

        That’s the truth, but David push her buttons at times, he knows how to get under her skin.. Then he can be the poor husband doing everything he can to help his wife, but she’s crazy.. I don’t think I could have done season after his cheating scandal at all.l It was just a matter of time before she explodes. He is seen as a man that made a mistake and trying to hold on to his family. He’s not I see him calculated and cunning, he gaslights her and she done, stick a fork in it. Who are we to tell her that he should be forgiven and move past it.. Although she wasn’t sleeping with her husband and acted repulsive about sleeping with him.. IDK
        He’s no angel to give his daughter his wedding band and leave afterwards. That’s petty and chicken shit the kids don’t belong in the middle, kids normally live both parents.. Daughters need their father in their lives, he’s the one that gives her self esteem and a healthy outlook about herself. They are a hot ass mess

        • we”r”family

          David is no angel indeed. He should’ve gone through with the divorce.. We saw him in action at the dinner table this season when Shannon’s Mother was visiting.
          Those kids are caught in the middle, used as pawns, and will probably have issues themselves.
          I think Shannon hinted at something she came from money and David is the first person in his family to go to college and make money.
          However, IMO this isn’t David is at fault more, Shannon is at fault more. The both play into this toxic relationship. I have no doubt that Shannon, in the heat of an argument, runs screaming into another room,, locks the door, and threatens to harm herself. Just as I think David in the heat of the argument pushes and shoves.

          • Trippinhhard

            Yes all of that is true

    • Haz

      Is she on Psych meds? I thought those who take the holistic route usually try to find natural remedies over pills.

  • GirlPlz

    Carefully selected tweets.

  • TartLemon

    What strikes me most about this is the fans of the show overwhelmingly want her to ‘seek help’. That shows concern and at least some redeeming qualities. Other psychos (ie Lydia, Peggy, Vicki) are being petitioned to just GO AWAY!

    • we”r”family

      Yes, for the most part I read that folks think it would be best if she left the show, divorced, and got real help.
      Now Lydia, Vicki, Tamra, Peggy and go far away lol.

    • Trippinhhard

      There’s nothing redeeming about Lydia at all, she acts like she’s smoking weed.. I don’t care her mother make the show.. She more interesting and I know with her money she smoking the best weed money can buy.. Hit, hit and pass the joint The movie how high) I laughed some much off that dumb as movie, my ex loved it so I watched it with him..Lydia according to the blogs, her whole season was about Doug’s balls and another high priced magazine I’ve never heard of.. I honestly believe that Shannon needs to leave the show and work on herself, because David is only buying time because he loves being on TV. She need to do a Yolanda play sick and you get more than half of his money money.. IMO

      • MissScarletwithaRevolver

        Lydia is as dumb as a stump. Her and Peggy are dead air.

        • Trippinhhard

          I’m stealing that dumb as a stump.. That’s an excellent word for her starving butt..

          • MissScarletwithaRevolver

            Please do!! 😀

          • Trippinhhard

            petskunkThank you 😎😎😎😎😎

  • wellWellwell

    We have watched her blame everybody and brow beat her family into submission. Now she is doing her best showcasing David and anyone around her as the crazy ones. It’s her and her mental problems happened long before she was part of this cast.

    • Trippinhhard

      She was right about Peggy’s husband, he should have been talking with David, not crazy ass Shannon., She wasn’t there and he was wrong to pull her aside.. I would have stopped him in mid sentence and told him, you need to speak with my husband not me.. They are desperate for a storyline and it’s once again Cancer..

      • wellWellwell

        I’m tired of the cancer stories and a mentally unstable women who browbeats her family into submission. I agree Tripp, Peggy’s husband had NO business doing that. I watched that scene today (while folding laundry) after swearing this show off, anyway David was just trying to engage. Lord knows what Shannon told him but he wasn’t trying to interrogate that pansy. I’m starting not to like Peggy because of her azzhole husband and a few other reasons.
        They need a total recast of the OC or move to another city.

        • Trippinhhard

          She’s a poser herself. The Cancer stories are played out. I’m officially tuned out of reading about her Cancer from anywhere. What else are they going to talk about. They are boring and her hair is thin and limp. That pink lipstick is horrendous looking. They are poser in my mind. something is off with them. Again I say she knew about her martial problems. We all have lied to our spouse, and we all fall short but of Jesus words and etc. she was gaslightng Shannon and got the results she was looking for. Lydia didn’t know Peggy, her husband told her Peggy had cancer she That’s one of the reasons I quit watching the HWS,they lie about associating each other.

      • we”r”family

        Gosh yes. I’ve had a hard time myself understanding why she had the double mastectomy. I also do not think David was interrogating him at all. He was asking questions.

        • Trippinhhard

          IKR

      • MissScarletwithaRevolver

        Spot on.

        • Trippinhhard

          It’s like everyone is pushing her buttons

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    Batshyt crazy is an understatement. This woman is unhinged & it’s not entertaining in the least.

    • Champagne Hangover

      Snotty assed Heather had Shannon’s number from the get go…Still can’t stand Heather, but bet you that bitch AND the stick that’s lodged up her ass are back next season….while Shannon vacations from next season in a rubber room.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        You know?!? I could see that. Everyone felt sympathy for Shannon when Trashy & Highbrow tried to make her look unhinged.
        Shannon gained support because at the time it looked like they were gaslighting her.
        Oh but now… I often think, maybe they should call an ambulance. LOL!!

        • Champagne Hangover

          Exactly! I was Team Shannon all the way! I thought Heather was just an asshole. Well, Heather may be an asshole but she was right about Shannon.

          • we”r”family

            Seriously, at this point it wouldn’t surprise me if Bravo filmed folks in white coats leading Shannon away in a straight jacket. Shannon has zero coping skills. She is staying on a show that is fraught with deception and meanness. I would assume she doesn’t need the paycheck but rather the outlet. If this is her cry for help I wish Bravo would answer it by letting her go. Heather is an uptight snob. But, she had Shannon’s number.

          • MissScarletwithaRevolver

            She has no coping skills because she was raised to be a coddled spoiled brat.

          • Champagne Hangover

            ^^^This up here.

          • RealitytvJunkie

            😂😂😂😂😂😂

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            I found Highbrow annoying as hell but I’d take her anyway over Shannon.
            The constant whining & freaking out over everything is just too much.

      • Elizabeth Fisher

        I hope they bring Heather back. I want to see her new house!

        • MissScarletwithaRevolver

          I read that Heather’s neighborhood board won’t let Bravo film in the neighborhood.

      • RealitytvJunkie

        I hope so. I want to see her house.

  • Champagne Hangover

    Shannon needs to stop trying to get blood from a turnip and just dump that turnip of a marriage straight off the turnip truck. That’s the first step to cleaning out the toys in the attic and the bats in the belfry. The second step is rehab. You know MOST them stress lbs. are courtesy of Grey Goose. Then off ya’s go to a fat farm. Come back to OC a lean, mean fighting machine… after a few cosmetic procedures, of course. 😒🙄

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Agreed she needa to do all of this but she never will.

    • MissScarletwithaRevolver

      Totally agree. And there is her story line. She would own the show for at least 3 seasons. But maybe she should wait to dump him until she gets healthy and well. Cheaper than a nanny.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Alcohol and pills have taken over ShanNut’s life. The stress of trying to keep David from filing for divorce has driven her to the brink.

  • bree7702

    I think David is just biding his time until his youngest girls turn 18. I think he knows if he leaves before then Shannon will most likely turn his kids against him. But I think he needs to leave asap. These two seem miserable together and Shannon is so paranoid he’ll cheat again she’s making her kids, David and her own life miserable in the process.

    • MissScarletwithaRevolver

      He might be staying around because it’s her money…

    • 4peace

      This.
      Life is too short to be that miserable. I remember when they were in Mexico and David told her she’s not happy, and he wants to be. Cheating was a horrible idea, but leaving that marriage and finding peace elsewhere is the best thing for all of them. Especially the children. David doesn’t need Shannon’s money. He makes plenty as a contractor. He likes corn chips and muddy exercise. Not high falutin tastes. The big life is all Shannon. Let her have it.

    • Evil Queen

      Shan’s paranoia is driving him into the arms of another mistress

  • Ronnie

    Bravo’s formula for every show:
    A habitual liar
    Someone with dillusions of grandeur
    A pot stirrer
    Someone desperate enough to do anything asked of her
    Someone who is bat sh!t crazy
    All of them must be willing to makes mountains out of mole hills and belabor every disagreement ad nauseam. Shannon is Bravo gold!

    • MidwestMiddie

      Shannon appears to be following Icky’s Blueprint.

      • Ronnie

        She used to shriek alot too, didn’t she?

        • MidwestMiddie

          Yes! : )

      • RealitytvJunkie

        Sorry Middie but Shannon’s behavior has nothing to do with Vicki.

        • MidwestMiddie

          Now Come on RtJ. You know you can see your favorite gal
          in Ronnie’s verse. : )

  • boredatwork

    Peggy ‘Do you trust your husband, has he ever lied to you about anything else?’
    A split second later ‘Non no no, I know nothing’.

    I hate when idiots like Peggy think everyone around them is as dumb as they are.
    Lady, everything about you is fake AF, you’re as dumb as a rock and a worst actress than Yolanda.
    And I’m saying all of this while disliking Shanuts a LOT.

    • we”r”family

      While not a fan of Shannon, how irksome that Peggy and Diko chose the most unhinged person to go on the attack of.
      Peggy is fake, more than fake, snobby fake. Just like Yolanda. She has brought zero to the show.

      • boredatwork

        I agree

      • MissScarletwithaRevolver

        Totally agree. How much do you want to bet Icki recruited Peggy and pitched her to Bravo?

        • 4peace

          I thought she was Lydia’s friend.

          • MissScarletwithaRevolver

            Lydia is in the tank for Icki also.

  • bpnc

    Shannon is making rhoc unwatchable.

    • MidwestMiddie

      IMO, Icky beat her to it.

      • MissScarletwithaRevolver

        I agree Middie. I would love to see Shannon get some real help, get healthy and take control of her life instead of her lazy habit of blaming everyone else for what is wrong with her life. I’d like to see that storyline and I’d like to see her succeed. . There is nothing- absolutely nothing that could make me want to watch Icky Gunvalson do anything. Nothing.

    • RealitytvJunkie

      She’s mentally unfit and needs to be committed.

  • Karoline

    There comes a point when it can’t be everybody else.

    • wellWellwell

      Common denominator is Tamtrash, she is doing her best to gaslight Shanloon so she can keep a spot on the show. Shanloon has been her “focused” SL for the last few seasons. Tamtrash needs and needed her weak minded azz on her side. How phony was that scene when she sat down with Icky “It’s not a good look” I have seen better Telenovela shows.
      When it comes to Shanloon, her family is suffering because of her need for attention. It’s beyond sicking at this point. David gave up trying and the look on the girls face’s every time they start spatting..said it all. They know it will escalate.

      • RealitytvJunkie

        To be honest, I’m afraid David has grown so fusteared of her erratic behavior, he might flip one day and kill the whole family. I hope that day never comes but Shannon is insufferable and could push anyone to the brink.

  • nvrbl

    Vicki mentioned the domestic violence to Kelly off camera which was wrong but Shannon talks about it nonstop. I think it is Shannon’s passive aggressive way of punishing David.
    Shannon says that Vicki lied about the DV but it is public record that David pled guilty to it and went through the court system

    • Reality Buffy

      The event that Vicki is talking about is not the the thing that David pled guilty to. I honestly believe Shannon in a drunken rage bruised herself but purposefully sentvVicki pics and said she didn’t know how she got them, hoping Vicki would think David did it.but when David didn’t leave her she wanted Vicki to forget the pics. I am sorry but David doesn’t act abusive but Shannon kids act nervous around her not him.

      • nvrbl

        My point is that it is Shannon perpetuating the rumor, not Vicki. The same with Tamra and the rumor about Eddie was going around before he even came on the show. Tamra talks about it constantly because it is her only SL. They are both blaming Vicki for rumors about their husbands when they are the ones talking about the rumors non stop.

        • Reality Buffy

          Oh I agree , Vicki truly believes David beat Shannon but she isn’t the one talking about it.

        • Maria

          Not all rumours are true. Whether Eddie is bi or not is no ones business. Icky has been stirring the pot behind the scenes. What Icky did, by inviting that guy to her birthday, was her way of bringing the rumour out again. By saying wanted Tamrat for a gym was just plain wrong. How would Icky like it if everyone started talking about Steve’s past?
          Crooks was a piece of crap, he was exposed for the garbage that he is. Instead of Icky being hurt for him being exposed, why not thank the ladies for opening her eyes? But she can’t because she was in on his deception and she looked like garbage, which she is.

  • Heather’sCovenOfRealWitches

    I can’t stand Peggy. She and Diko are so flashly and fake. Her heavy accent is fake. I have friends that escaped Iran and Cuba when they were 12 & 13 and didn’t speak any English until they got here. They have no accents.

    Shannon is an emotional mess but I don’t think she is mean like Peggy.

    • MissScarletwithaRevolver

      That’s the difference. Shannon is a train wreck to be sure but Peggy is mean.

  • Reality Buffy

    I think Shannon has a hearing loss, she talks so loud.

  • Reality Buffy

    Lydia looks like Sarah Jessica Parker on crack.

  • GirlPlz

    The tea is that everyone – fans and cast – is sick of Peggy

    • RRRobin

      I’m sick of shrieky Loon Beador…………please Bravo, please dump that annoying fool.

      It would be easy to find her house — it would bey the only one surrounded by little men in white coats up and down the street and around the block!

  • 4peace

    Why do people with no sense talk so loudly? It’s freaking exhausting.

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Never liked Shannon from her first season but I do think she is being gaslighted by Lydia and Peggy. She really hasn’t done anything to Lydia to justify Lydia’s contempt. Lydia’s MO is to accuse Shannon of something and then act like Shannon is haranguing her when she is just trying to explain how Lydia got it wrong.
    Peggy is phony as hell. That accent and bad english when she has lived in the US since she was one?? She’s dull and Diko is desperate for the show.

    • Maria

      Lydia has no redeemable qualities at all. I don’t understand why Bravo thought it would be a good idea to bring her back. Other than she’s on team Icky, but I haven’t seen them interact much.
      I kind of like Kelly this season, she’s not so abrasive but she still pot stirs with Icky. She’s good with the other women when she’s with them, but when she’s with Icky the story changes and mocks the others.

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        ITA. Lydia is so superior and smug she is unwatchable.
        Kelly is easier to take this season but she is still unhinged. This is why I find it funny that so many think Shannon is crazy – compared to Kelly or Vicki, Shannon is quite restrained in her reactions!

    • TheCrownIsHeavyDarlings

      I so agree. Lydia made it clear (in the first ep) that she wasn’t effing around this time around; she needed someone to play off of, and God knows Shannut is an easy target. Basically, she’s collateral damage.
