Shannon Beador’s day at the golf course on newest episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County turned into a huge mess. Shannon, 54, got into a blowout fight with friend Tamra Judge, and she ended up storming off! Watch the clip above for a taste of the drama that went down.
Shannon and Tamra, 50, haven’t been seeing eye-to-eye for some time now. At the beginning of last night’s episode, Tamra is mad at her friend for hiring her own trainer for her new workout regime. Tamra is a bodybuilder who owns her own gym.
Tamra told her mom, “She sees the healthy lifestyle that we live. Instead I’m going with her to pick out gym equipment and she’s hiring some trainer. We have trainers — we have one who can come to your house if you want. I just wish that she would trust me.”
In an earlier episode, Shannon had sobbed to Kelly Dodd about how her ex-husband and weight gain had robbed her of her body confidence.
Tamra also felt that Shannon was monopolizing their friendship time by taking about her divorce, instead of asking about Tamra and her husband Eddie. “There’s a lot of dumping on me and telling me what’s going on and there’s a lot of negativity. I get off the phone and I’m drained. She never asks, ‘How’s Eddie doing? What’s going on?’ She never asks. She doesn’t care.”
At Vicki Gunvalson’s birthday party, that tension gets wrapped up in another fight for an explosive moment. Last week, the girls had been discussing Emily Simpson’s husband Shane, and Shannon said that his actions toward fellow RHOC cast mate Gina Kirschenheiter reminded her of something her ex would have done. Shannon’s ex David was pretty monstrous; he recently blew up at her in court.
Shannon later admitted that she shouldn’t project her marriage onto other people’s, but that didn’t stop the women from fighting over who called Emily’s husband “abusive.” Emily heard it was Shannon, who said Tamra was the one to mention Shane’s behavior to begin with.
“Don’t f—— blame it on me Shannon Beador. You said what you said,” Tamra shouted. “You made the comment. The bottom line is, she’s protecting her husband. That’s her husband. When somebody talks about your husband it’s f—— hurtful. When somebody goes after your husband, as a wife, you get defensive. And she felt that.”
During the episode last night, Shannon took to Twitter to continue to defend herself.

“Too bad,” Tamra said when costar Kelly pointed out that she’d upset her friend. “This is so typical of Shannon. Shannon’s really good at making situations about her. Too bad.” So it seems like this fight wasn’t really about Emily and Shane, but about their friendship. That’s some messy subtext.
