Monday night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County promises to amp the drama in an already boring season.
The ladies gather at Meghan King Edmonds’ house — with the exception for Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd. And tension erupts when the chatter turns to David Beador asking Peggy Sulahian’s husband about her complicated breast cancer diagnosis.
“You did not hear what my husband said!” Shannon shouts at Peggy.
“Do you trust your husband?” Peggy asks. “Has he ever lied to you about anything else?”
The question infiltrates Shannon Beador — she loses her sh*t and explodes on Peggy!
“Don’t even go there,” Shannon snaps back, before referencing David’s 2015 affair. She then tells Peggy to stop her line of questioning, but Peggy persists.
“Today, do I trust my husband?” Shannon repeats. “Yes, I do. Yes, I do!”
“Then you should trust him,” Peggy says. “God bless his soul. He’s your husband.”
Lydia McLaughlin tries to calm down an irrational Shannon by advising her to hear Peggy out. Naturally, Shannon objects to Lydia bossing her around but Peggy manages to edge out a few words.
“Listen to me, I can be rude about this and I can tell you, honey, it’s none of his business,” Peggy starts. “We’ve been dealing with it for a long time…”
“Why did your husband bring it up then, to my husband?” Shannon interjects.
“He was talking to [Lydia’s husband] Doug,” Peggy replies. “Your husband butt in.”
“Then he should’ve told my husband to walk away from the conversation,” Shannon says.
Meghan escalates the drama by rudely butting in and tells Peggy to speed it up because she’s taking “a long time” to get her thoughts out.
“You weren’t there, and I wasn’t there,” Shannon notes. “You don’t know the story.”
“You know what?” Peggy fires back. “Who’s more important here, more than anything? Who cares about your feelings or your husband’s feelings? I’m lucky to not being going through chemo right now. Let’s talk about that.”
