Vicki Gunvalson: “I Really Tried To Put Myself In Shannon’s Shoes”

Vicki Gunvalson is taking to her Bravo Blog to dish on this week's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Vicki Gunvalson talks about her twerking and why she was worried about Shannon Beador. 

Vicki writes:

"Going into tonight's episode, I really tried to put myself in Shannon's shoes. I've been through two divorces, and a few years ago I was the one being attacked by the other ladies. I really felt abandoned at the time, and I didn't want Shannon to feel that way with me. I was genuinely worried about Shannon and wanted to make sure that she was ok. Depression and other emotions mixed with any form of alcohol can be a very red flag, and my mothering instincts kicked in. When we didn’t hear from Shannon, who I was trying to reach for a whole day for any reason, I started to get really worried.

Shannon hasn't acted perfectly, but I knew that the way we handled it was not the most effective means of trying to help our friend. I can empathize with her reaction and emotions, and I want to help her move past this.

I think this trip really did help bring the group together. I wish we didn’t need the drama to get there, but sometimes people need to get their emotions out to really be heard and make a change in their life. Shannon needed to hear how her behavior is affecting her friends and also know how much we care about her. I think all of us needed to hear Gina talk about her divorce, so we can better understand and support her. We needed to hear about Emily's issues with her mother to understand where she is coming from in pushing Shane to have another child. It was important for Shannon to know how she can make Tamra feel sometimes, and I do believe Tamra loves her very much and for some reason wasn’t able to communicate her frustrations for a while now. Friendships don't happen overnight. Real friendships grow over the years and  after really understanding the other person. 

Now, about the twerking… I'm not sure if the twerking or the falling at the waterfall was more embarrassing. I still can't believe there was so much demand for my twerking!!! I guess you can't take the "whoop it up" out of the girl even at 56. I have never “done that” before in my life, and for some reason, Tamra was making me feel like it had to be done. Ugh…embarrassing."
