‘RHOC’ Star Vicki Gunvalson Accuses Shannon Beador’s Husband of Physical Abuse
The Real Housewives of Orange County star threatened to expose Shannon’s secrets before, but on Monday’s episode she did just that and accused David of being physically abusive towards his wife.
“You know what [Vicki] said about you?” says Kelly Dodd on their car ride to the Dublin airport. “That your husband beat the s—t out of you. And it’s all out there now — how ’bout that?”
The 54-year-old does not try to hide the fact she said those words and shares her fears with the other ladies.
“When David went face to face with me, they said ‘Were you afraid of him hurting me?’ And I said ‘Yes, I was afraid of David hitting me just like he hit his wife,’” says Vicki.
Though Vicki confirms she said those things about David, she's not happy Kelly shared her concerns with the group.
“I have secrets of Shannon’s that she told me in confidence about her relationship with David and I told Kelly in privacy,” says Vicki.
“I never expected her to share it. Every single girl has problems in her relationships. [Shannon] doesn’t want to talk about it? Well guess what? I didn’t want to talk about what I was going through last year either.”
As expected, Shannon’s not too thrilled about the accusations brought against her husband.
“You need to shut the f—k up right now,” she yells.
“My husband didn’t touch you and you f—king provoked him. How dare you? My husband and I have worked on my family, and my kids called you Aunt Vicki. How dare you cut their father down?”
“Why is Vicki saying something like this?” she says later in the episode. “You don’t accuse people of beating the s—t out of others because that has never happened.”
Yikes — safe to say their friendship is dunzo forever.
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
