Shannon Beador and Emily Simpson just can't seem to be friends. The Real Housewives of Orange County stars haven't been getting along in recent months. Shannon shed some light on the current situation and admitted she knows that Emily has been talking about her behind her back.
Shannon, 55, revealed her thoughts to Us Weekly while promoting her partnership with Innovo. “I keep hearing about all the things that Emily has to say about me, and my response is she should focus on her own life instead of trying to talk about me and other cast members,” she said. “It’s not fun to have a divide. I don’t like arguing with anyone, so we’ll see what happens.”
Emily, 43, trashed Shannon, as well as costars Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson (a.k.a the "Three Amigas") earlier this month and called them out for being bullies. The attorney told the outlet at the time, “I feel like when they get together, I feel like they’re mean. Mean girls. Absolutely... I just saw the bullying throughout the season, towards the end when they all kind of turned on Kelly Dodd."
She continued, "A lot of things that were directed at her. A lot of things that didn’t have anything to do with the show. A lot of bringing up things to try to make her look bad. I didn’t like that. I thought it was dirty, and I thought it was unethical. I thought it was just wrong.”
However, despite Shannon and Emily's feud, the mother of three isn't dead set on staying mad at Emily forever. Shannon confessed that amends may be made sometime in the near future.
“Never say never, because I’m friends with Vicki today, who would’ve thought?” Shannon added. “Tres Amigas. Yeah, we’re muy bueno. We have a history together, and we went to Mexico and came up with that funny term last year. So there’s a lot of talk about a lot of people. So, Emily should focus on herself.”
As OK! readers know, Kelly and Shannon have a bit of a rocky history since Kelly hit her costar on the head with a mallet. Shortly after the incident, Shannon contemplated pressing charges against the Bravo personality.
After arriving at the hospital, Shannon complained of a headache and blurred vision. She received a CT scan and doctors concluded that she had a mild concussion. They asked if she wanted to press charges and get the police involved. But she declined and said that she would prefer an apology instead.
