Leslie Grossman is the other guest. She requested to have Shannon Beador as the other guest. I already have a lot to say about her leopard print dress, which I am sure looks lovely in person and Shannon’s “read between the lines” t-shirt with hand graphic. Or maybe just one word will do. Tacky.
David Hallberg is the bartender. He’s a principal dancer for the American Ballet Theatre. He has book out that Andy is too stupid to properly hold up. He totally covers up the guy’s name. David says the real star of the OC is Archie, Shannon’s dog.
Then, the drinking word is “Vicky.” WTF? The OG of the OC has been on the show for twelve years and whatever millennial is in charge of graphics can’t spell her name right? What a ratchet little show this is.
Fifty-seven percent of pollsters think Shannon and Kelly’s relationship will last. I agree. Two drunk chicks getting divorced will be BFFs next season.
Tomorrow, or by the time most of your read this, today, People Magazine will announce The Sexiest Man Alive and from all indications it will be Blake Shelton. I’m down with that. What I am not down with is Andy letting us know he won for “best hair.” WTF? This explains jacked up obsession with doing weird shit to his hair lately. Wonkiest tie? Wonkiest eye? Sure. This just makes some of us talk more about what the hell is going on at CAA and the collusion we’ve seen as late. Not sure what that means? Well, I’ve been sitting on some brewing tea. It has to do with a certain late night talk show host who despite the worst ratings in the world suddenly got a three-year contract extension at Bravo despite earlier reports he was being shown the door… Suddenly everything is coming up roses for him. Why is that exactly? That’s a topic for another time…
I do not like Leslie Grossman.
Regarding Shannon’s split with David, she says when they filmed the reunion, she and David had been separated for five weeks. She says she thought getting it out there would be a relief but for her saying it all out loud made it real and final. So she has been having good days and bad days. She starts to cry. Last week she saw that he had taken off his wedding ring. She says that is inevitable, but making the adjustment is difficult. She tries to stop herself from crying she says it is all good and this had to happen and there are good days ahead. Andy treats her like a wounded baby bird and tells he it’s okay to feel emotion. This means Shannon is back for sure, which we already knew. But he is so nice to some people and cruel to others. It’s Peggy, Lydia and Meghan who are out from what I’ve heard.
The audience is very pro Shannon. All twelve of them.
After returning from the break, the drinking word has now been spelled properly. Andy held the book up again still covering the author’s name.
Shannon says that she has had talks with Tamra about shady things she has done on the show in confessional and in scenes she was not in. She says in those conversations Tamra tells her what really happened and Shannon says during the season she was so volatile that Tamra walked on eggshells around her a little bit. Peggy tweets, ” What means walked on eggshells?” I keed. I keed.
Andy clarifies to what’s her name that Lydia was not fired after her first season, she did not want to come back.
Apparently, an editor from the show gave Shannon her t-shirt. Seriously. Who wears a t-shirt to this show? Despite the ratchet nature of the whole thing, you should try to look nice. A Vicki fans asks why Shannon would not just accept her apology. Shannon says if Vicki was sincere she would have done it privately and not while Tamra was whispering in her ear after a few drinks at a bar in Iceland.
A caller asks Shannon if she can name three people that she is not done with from this season. She says Tamra Judge. And Kelly Dodd. And at this point there are not any others. So no. She can’t do that.
Shannon is obsessed with Ramona and Sonja.
We end with lots of accolades for Shannon and supporting her in her divorce.
