Man, did anyone else want to give Shannon Beador a massive hug tonight, or was it just me? The fact that I felt like consoling her is telling, since I'm usually a staunch anti-hugger. Especially of strangers. As if facing some serious problems in her marriage weren't bad enough, Shannon made the rookie mistake of confiding in an Orange Country veteran, Tamra Judge.
I don't think Tamra is a bad person. I do, however, think she likes being on T.V. maybe even more than Vicki Gunvalson does. That Shannon would open up to Tamra only for Tamra to turn around, reveal her secrets, and belittle her just to get back in good with Heather Dubrow was pretty appalling. It was also pretty riveting to watch. Somewhere (probably in heaven) Niccolo Machiavelli witnessed this all and slow-clapped. You know that dead historical bitch lurved him some drama.
Shannon found out -- VIA EMAIL -- that her husband thinks they need to spend some time apart. Dude. If your husband is emailing you? That's maybe red flag number one. No wait, I'll back up -- if your husband goes to bed at 8:30 so he doesn't have to engage with you: THAT is red flag number one.
This is making me sound much more callous about Shannon's situation than I actually feel. I don't doubt that she and David Beador love each other very much, but clearly things aren't right. Clearly it's hurting them both. I basically started weeping when Shannon had to go to the doctor because her relationship problems were LITERALLY MESSING WITH HER HEART. It's been a while since this show had a character who was so fascinating to watch. I just hope she can survive the poop-storm that is about to land on her head when she finds out that Tamra has been airing her dirty laundry for the whole world to see.
Do you think Shannon and David will make it through?
