RHOC's Shannon Beador Squashes Hopes of Reconciliation with Vicki Gulvanson: 'I Don't Need to Be Her Friend'
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Mondays (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo
Shannon Beador is holding her ground.
“I have forgiven her, I have moved on,” Beador tells to PEOPLE Now. “I wish her well – I just don’t need to be her friend.”
The admission comes after the controversy surrounding Gunvalson’s then-boyfriend Brooks Ayers lying about his cancer diagnosis. And although she says the decision to not be friends with Gunvalson again is generating a lot of backlash on social media, she has no regrets about the way the situation went down.
“I am a loyal friend, I defended my friend up until nothing added up,” Beador says of the moment she realized Gunvalson was helping Ayers lie. “I was the last one standing in her court.”
And it seems like the feud extends to the women’s significant others – even though Beador’s husband, David, and Ayers used to be friends.
“There was a lie about an illness, and people shouldn’t do that,” Beador explains. “To me, it’s unconscionable. My husband and I want no part of it.”
