In an interview with Reality Blurb, the Real Housewives of Orange County cast member discussed her sixth season on the Bravo TV reality series.
“Going into the start of the season, I finally lost my 40 pounds. So, I felt pretty confident and I was just excited to have some fun,” Shannon told us on October 10 during a promotional event for INNOVO. “It was crazy to me that it was my sixth year on the show because I feel like I started just yesterday.”
“The first five were a little hard. So I was excited to have a fun season. Of course I get involved in the fray a little bit but I’m in and out. So, it’s a good year,” she continued.
Included in that “fray” that Shannon spoke of was her ongoing tension with Emily. When we asked Shannon if she and Emily had made any progress towards establishing a friendship with one another, Shannon confirmed they had not before calling out Emily for constantly putting the blame on her.
“I’m constantly hearing about ‘Shannon won’t.’ You know, I’ll try but stop talking about me and maybe you make an effort. You know?” she asked. “Stop talking about me. Maybe you should focus on other things.”
Although Shannon was also seen going through a rocky patch with her longtime bestie, Tamra, in the recently-released mid-season trailer for RHOC, the hardships they endured were brief.
“When you are as close to someone as I am to Tamra, where you are talking a million times a day, we’ve already, I don’t know, we have like 30 texts back and forth today, you’re almost like sisters and sisters are going to argue in their lifetime. So, we do have a bump and we resolve it pretty quickly,” Shannon explained.
As for her friendship with Gina, Shannon said she and her fellow divorcee are “good.”
“Last weekend, we met her on the weekend with her friends,” she revealed.
“It was a surprise to me and I feel for her because I went through the exact same thing,” Shannon stated. “We do have a lot of similarities in what we’ve been through in our relationships and I know how painful that it was for me. If there is any way that I can help her or try and curb her pain, then, I want to do that for her.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County season 14 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
