Molly Shannon says Shannon is her favorite housewife. When Andy asks what it is about Shannon that she likes so much about her she goes into a whole litany of fabulous things about Shannon. She’s elegant. She’s a good mother. She’s nice. I do not think she actually watches the show.
Shannon is a whole different person now. She has a new face entirely, and she’s lost weight and is wearing black to look even slimmer. Even her teeth look different. Andy shows Shannon’s struggles with weight on the show. Andy says Shannon is beautiful at any weight. I suppose it is the Jeff Lewis connection that keeps Andy from degrading Shannon the way he does other housewives on WWHL. That, and I believe Shannon meets the financial threshold to be treated humanely. Shannon says she has lost 15 pounds and is down to 29% body fat. Shannon defends her trainer saying that he is a supporter and it didn’t even phase her when he spoke to her like that. She says she doesn’t blame Vicki for her weight gain, but then goes on to say that the five months in between when the episode was filmed about David’s domestic violence plea until the show aired, she was a mess and ate and drank a lot. She has cut alcohol out of her diet almost entirely now.
Shannon says she is not proud of her behavior at The Quiet Woman and that she over-reacted. She and Tamra had dinner there the night the show aired. 88% of those polled are on Shannon’s side. Even with Molly Shannon’s bizarre adoration of Shannon, I still think production had to blow those numbers up. I am also realizing I don’t like Molly Shannon.
Shannon says she hasn’t spoken to David’s mom at all. I can’t blame her there. If my mother in law had my husband and his mistress over to her house for dinner, I’d never speak to her again either.
Every single episode of this ratchet show lately, a caller just so happens to call in and ask questions like “What do you think of Countess Luann and her crumbling marriage?” The question was for Molly Shannon and she’s clearly confused about why she is being asked to discuss someone’s marriage on the show. So Andy goes through the whole list of nasty things people say with the intent of making her say something negative. Molly basically says that Luann is a grown woman who knows what she is doing and who she is marrying and that Luann has always been wild and enjoys having fun, and is happy in her marriage.
Then Andy out of nowhere asks her if Ramona has gone to far this season. This is important because it’s approaching pick up letter time for NYC. This sounds to me like Andy is asking if Ramona should come back. If I were Ramona, I’d be very nervous. Especially since Bethenny is being nicer to Sonja this season and telling her things like she is trying to protect her. I take that behavior to mean Bethenny knows both Ramona and Sonja are on the bubble for next season and Bethenny is trying to tell Sonja to distance herself from Ramona in order to save her contract. Molly says that she has gone too far. She doesn’t take responsibility for the things that she does. Shannon chimes in to agree. I am going to predict that Ramona is out for next season. Although, isn’t that season ten? They tend to keep everyone around for season ten. On the other hand they did axe Phaedra out of it.
A caller says. “Shannon, I know you are delusional, but don’t you think it is coincidental that you’ve had an issue with every single housewife?” Now you know that question was changed by the caller. They would never let a mean question for Shannon through. Shannon says she hasn’t had an issue with every single housewife, but she does react so she is probably a good person to go after when you start the show. Andy asks her if she has an issue with NEW housewives. She says no. She went to meet Lydia and she wouldn’t stop repeating the word, “Vicki” after Tamra kept asking her not to do it. Really? Are we not going to discuss how one housewife mentioning another housewife repeatedly triggered Shannon to scream like a hyena, rip off her mike and scream that she is DONE! She says she and Meghan are great friends right now, so she is not delusional and gets along great with most of the housewives.
The scene where Peggy literally holds Meghan’s lips together is bizarre. It’s clear this season we needed people to be on Vicki’s side and Peggy and Lydia were hired to be ride or die Vicki all season.
Shannon says her relationship with David is good. She says last season ended with the vow renewal and they were at the highest of the highs. She says you can’t stay there all the time, but they are good. I give them six months after the reunion airs.
Shannon says if she regrets saying people in Michigan eat potatoes at every meal. She says she does but she is from Michigan too and ate the potatoes.
When Isaac Mizrahi was on with Kelly, he said Shannon was the best dressed housewife. Who other than herself does Shannon think is the best dressed? She goes with Sonja Morgan.
Unlike the miserable show with Reza and Shervin, this show was very enlightening.
