After one of the most fraught seasons ever, The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion is finally hear — and it doesn’t disappoint.
Everything comes to the fore as the ladies have a major have-it-out sit-down (aka cat fight) with executive producer Andy Cohen mediating in the thick of it.
The major clash of the evening unsurprisingly comes when Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge call out Vicki Gunvalson, in a confrontation that leaves Shannon storming out in tears.
The feud has been simmering since the ladies’ trip to Ireland where Vicki told Kelly Dodd that Shannon’s husband David had allegedly beaten her.
The pair had a massive confrontation in the season finale at the party Shannon was hosting to celebrate Tamra Judge’s victory in her fitness competition, with Shannon telling Vicki their friendship was totally over.
Ahead of the reunion, Shannon vowed: “I’m going to kick some ass!”
Then as she clashes with Vicki, she yells at her, eyes popping: “You are despicable, I will never, ever, speak to you again.”
Meanwhile when Vicki tries to speak, Tamra brands Vicki an “old lady” as she tells her to shut up, adding: “I’m a better person than you.”
Vicki knows the rules, and says beforehand: “It’s not that I like to play the dirty game, but you know if you have to play it you gotta play it strong.”
But she’s furious about being made out like “a con woman and a liar”. She says she has “evidence” about Shannon’s husband David, and insists: “I didn’t lie!”
Shannon says: “My husband did not beat me!” But Vicki says: “I have proof.”
Shannon then walks out in tears. She says: “These women are so cruel.”
