I think we can officially etch this in stone: Meghan Kind Edmonds and Shannon Beador of Real Housewives of Orange County will probably never be friends. The two first got in a fight in Napa about a phone call that was incredibly petty and silly. Now, the two continue their "feud" back in Orange County, even though Shannon isn't really involved in the feud, and Meghan is acting kind of ridiculous. I was actually Team Meghan during the Napa portion of this argument, but once the women returned to their homes, Meghan went the immature route and not only isolated Shannon, but also the other women.
After an exhaustive argument in Napa Valley, where Meghan apologized to Shannon for "ambushing" her on the final day of their trip, the women returned home and prepared for their next fancy cocktail party. Oh, the lives of the women of RHOC. This time around, new girl Meghan was hosting an event and decided to invite all of the women... Except for Shannon.
Now, I'm not there. I don't know the entire story. But from the way I see it, it was extremely immature of Meghan to invite everyone but Shannon. The event was huge. Shannon knew most of the people there. Ostracizing someone is not sending the "I'm a bigger person" message. I'm not the only one who felt like that. Heather asked Meghan to reassess her decision on not inviting Shannon (and you know if Heather is asking for reconsideration of letting Shannon in somewhere...). Tamra felt it wasn't fair. And Vicki — dear, dear Vicki — felt what Meghan was doing was so wrong, that she decided to not go to the charity event either.
Meghan remained strong on her conviction of exluding Shannon. In her mind, she was "saving" Shannon from making a scene and doing something inappropriate at the party. Again, I'm not there. I don't know the whole story. But, that's a pretty bulls—t thing to say, Meghan. Just own up that you wanted to make Shannon feel like a loner.
But regardless of whether Shannon "brought this upon herself," like Meghan says she did, the other housewives felt it wasn't fair to Shannon and actually ended up bailing on Meghan's charity event to hang out with Vicki and Shannon in Laguna Beach. It was a pretty bold move, if you ask me, leaving one woman's very expensive charity event to go to a restaurant that had a total occupancy of two (Vicki and Shannon) to do tequila shots. Plus, this just adds one more thing for Meghan to have an issue with.
Hopefully she doesn't take it out on Shannon. If she does, get the nine lemons, because the Housewives are going to need some good Feng Shui working for them.
