I feel bad that Emily is my favorite new housewife because all of the housewives I like in their first seasons go home because they are “too boring.” Emily is a bit younger than the other women, well-educated, a mother, a wife, a party planner, and filming a reality show. As Shannon would say, she has a lot on her plate. Yet she is polite, doesn’t drink to excess, doesn’t scream at people, and tries to keep the peace and is open to be friends with all of the ladies.
Oh and I also think I realize why we all want to call her Gina. She looks a little bit like Jeana Keough from the early seasons. I think she reminds me just enough of Jeana for my brain to decide she is Gina. Maybe. Let’s check out her blog this week:
I was looking forward to dinner at the Sugar Mill in Jamaica. I anticipated a fun night of food, drinks and girl time, so I was surprised by how quickly the night turned into a nightmare.
Aw, those sweet pure first season expectations…
First of all, I think it’s extremely rude when someone shows up at a dinner so late. I’ve dealt with this issue for most of my life, and it hits a nerve with me when someone is continuously late. It says, “my time is more important than yours.” But Shannon has her own time agenda.
You would have hated Carole Radziwill.
Secondly, once Shannon and Vicki did arrive, I was shocked to see that Shannon was mocking our conversation and making rude comments under her breath about how boring the night was. I suppose learning of her home selling is more “riveting” dinnertime conversation. Maybe she should always lead the dinner conversations since she has such “riveting” things to discuss, but first she has to at least show up on time.
In all fairness to Shannon, before you joined the show she had a plethora of riveting dinner topics. Let me try to recall them for you. There was that time in 2014 Vicki and Shannon and David went to Mexico and Vicki did all sorts of nice things for Shannon.
We begin with the Real Members of the AARP dancing on the bar in Mexico. Seriously, they are about 35 years to old for that nonsense. The next day, Vicki takes the Beadors horse back riding. Shannon complains. She goes out of her way to make a nice romantic lunch for just the Beadors. Shannon complains. Oh Shannon! Lighten up Francis you are on vacation! At lunch, Shannon can’t be in the moment and enjoy the beautiful setting on the river. Shannon cries and unloads on David. She says they don’t do anything together. They are spending time together NOW! And they are not enjoying the moment! It’s so sad. Shannon thinks that David wants a divorce. LINK
Wait. That was a bad example. She was having a bad year. Let’s look at 2015.
Shannon and Vicki have cocktails and dinner at Tortilla Republic in Laguna Beach. They definitely got the better scene. Shannon seems to think she should have gotten a call saying she is not invited to her party. Oh Shannon. Shannon cries. Shannon is just a mess this season due to the issues with David and someone needs to run interference for her with the cunt satchel. LINK
Nope sorry, still crying at dinners. In 2016 she was still crying about David but the trip to Ireland was a good distract as she used that time to get really drunk and attack Kelly mercilessly. Then there was this party in 2017:
Meanwhile, Shannon, the professional victim and reigning holder of the batshit crazy title, is railing on Lydia and Peggy about what a horrible person Vicki is and how she traumatized her and made her fat and caused her husband to have an affair and provided uranium to North Korea. Don’t they understand that Vicki ruined her entire life? LINK
I’m sorry. I lied. Shannon never has had decent dinner conversation.
Secondly, I thought Shannon’s reaction to Tamra bringing up the fact that she treats Gina and me poorly by not even acknowledging our existence was ridiculous. Her “time management” excuse is lame, especially when we are all on vacation and none of the things on her “full plate” are pressing matters right now.
She’s been eating the same full plate of shit, ever since she came on the show. She has problems putting down the fork and getting her shit together.
She’s not taking care of her children, going to court, or slinging microwaveable fish.
But, but, there is cream cheese in the microwaveable fish! Doesn’t that sound delicious?
Instead of just acknowledging that she doesn’t even give us the common courtesy of a “hello,” or “how are you,” she continues to dismiss anything anyone says to her, and she deflects from her own behavior by bringing up David and her divorce. Again, her behavior just demonstrates that she lacks any empathy or compassion for others. It was difficult listening to her in the bathroom talk about her divorce …again… Her reaction at the Sugar Mill was over the top, and in my opinion, unjustified.
Darling, we’ve been hearing about the affair, the vow renewal, the divorce, the court proceedings for five years now. IT DOES NOT GET BETTER. Run for the hills.
Lastly, I’m not sure what champagne has to do with anything?
Watch your glass. “At dinner, Shannon orders a tequila. Kelly doesn’t want one but Shannon orders one for Kelly and Vicki anyway. Shannon excuses herself and goes to the bar staff and asks them to make the three tequilas a double! What is she up to?” LINK
Also, count your blessings that Shannon ignores you. It is better than the alternative.
