She’s trying to put it in the past — but that doesn’t mean she can totally ignore it. Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador got candid with Life & Style exclusively about her recent blowout fight with costar Kelly Dodd, who hit her amid a cast trip to a wellness resort in Miraval, Arizona during the September 17 episode. Needless to say, the 55-year-old wasn’t sure how quick she would be to forgive.
“You know I’m not going to — I’m not a person that wants to have a resentment. At the same time, going out to the press saying that she wish she would’ve hit me harder, I don’t know,” she explained while promoting her partnership with INNOVO®️, the first ever transcutaneous muscle electrical stimulator to treat stress urinary incontinence. “That to me it’s just — you’ve got a little bit of a screw loose.”
In fact, she even took the opportunity to dish back what her 44-year-old costar gives out. “I don’t know who walks around saying they wish they did harm on somebody but that’s Kelly Dodd in a nutshell,” Shannon said.
Believe it or not, the blonde beauty wasn’t even interested in fighting back during the practically infamous moment where the ladies were attempting to find their zen during a sound bath.
“No. That’s not the kind of person I am. I had Tamra [Judge] and a bunch of people in my ear saying … I’m also on a show and it happened at the hotel so when you have blurry vision, I just wanted to make sure I was OK and production and other people wanted to make sure I was OK too,” she explained. “It’s part of a show so, it was all fine as soon as I got the green light ‘you’re OK,’ then I was fine.”
Any fan will tell you the moment was full of tension and even led to Shannon and Tamra, 52, taking a trip to urgent care to make sure the Bravo TV star was no worse for the wear. But the RHOC babe decided not to press charges … which, TBH, would have probably caused more drama. But we’re glad to see Shannon is taking the high road — mostly.
