Shannon Beador has packed on the pounds since her last dance in The Real Housewives of Orange County spotlight. A trailer for the upcoming season reveals Shannon blaming cast nemesis, Vicki Gunvalson, for her hefty plight, and the jab triggered a tidal wave of social media chatter.
According to a source dishing to Radar Online, Vicki knows the real skinny.
“Vicki is telling friends that the fact that Shannon has been blaming her for getting fat is the most ridiculous thing that she’s ever heard,” the RHOC insider claimed. “Vicki told Shannon she’s only fat because she over-eats!” added the snitch.
Fans have skewered Shannon for the remark, and in recent days the reality star appears to have renewed her motivation to get fit.
“Yes Dr. Tim, this will become muscle soon!” wrote Shannon. “And to any of you who were working out with us last summer, I apologize for dropping the ball. I was traveling a lot and convinced myself I had no time for exercise. Not the smartest decision. I’m am starting again slowly and will do a FB live soon to talk about it. Off to the gym…”
Shannon had promised her Facebook followers a live workout series immediately following Thanksgiving, but was a no-show — offering no explanation at the time.
Shannon and Vicki’s recovering friendship was crushed last season, when Vicki alleged that Shannon was hiding an abusive dynamic within her marriage.
The insider claimed that Vicki lost respect for Shannon long ago.
“Vicki basically does not care about Shannon at all anymore, and she lost all respect for her when she stayed with David after he cheated on her,” the source said.
The insider added that many believe that Shannon is covering up a crumbling reality.
“Shannon keeps trying to pretend like her life is okay but everyone around her can see that she is completely falling apart,” alleged the source. “It’s actually quite sad to watch her self-destruct, but Vicki is not about to let Shannon blame her for any of her issues. She created them herself.”
Do you think that Shannon will win her battle with the scale? Will the issues behind the number be exposed?
The Real Housewives of Orange County premieres on July 10th.
