On Monday’s new episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon Beador finds out that Vicki Gunvalson has receipts!

Vicki spilled the beans to Shannon’s buddy, Meghan King Edmonds, over lunch — telling the new mom that she has “text messages and pictures,” to prove her claims. Meghan relays the scalding hot tea to Shannon and her sidekick, Tamra Judge, who are on a shopping trip.
“I had lunch with Vicki and overall the lunch went well,” King Edmonds says. “I tried to get her side of the story and said, ‘Vicki, you spread this rumor that David beats Shannon.’ And she’s like, ‘But he did. He did.’”
“She also said she has text messages that prove it. And I said, ‘Well, share the text messages, Vicki,’ ” Meghan adds.

Shannon tells the ladies, “I’ve already explained the situation.” Referencing Vicki’s proof are the same texts and photos she revealed during the RHOC season 11 reunion.
“That was the darkest place for me,” Shannon said at the reunion through tears as she looked through photos of bruising on her right shoulder and hip when she attempted to break open a door during a fight she had with David after his cheating scandal. “My husband did not beat me. He had an affair on me and I was doing my best to bring my family back together.”

At the reunion, Shannon described David’s 2003 arrest and subsequent assault conviction as merely a verbal argument, but as reported — court docs contradict Shannon’s explanation of the incident.
“It was nothing physical,” Shannon said. “We had a verbal argument. I wanted the argument to end. … I would never stay in a marriage if I were beat up. I would never teach that to my children.”
Tamra chimes in to raise doubt in Vicki’s abuse claims about Shannon’s marriage. “Vicki’s like a broken record. All she ever says is, ‘I have proof. I have proof,’ ” she says. “You got proof, show it!”
“If she had any kind of text message they would have been out a year ago,” Judge adds. “She can suck my balls!”
