Shannon Beador and Gina Kirschenheiter have spent the entire 16th season of their friendship being on again, off again. The duo ended on a high note after they had a heart-to-heart during a trip to Aspen, where Gina confessed to Shannon Beador that she was jealous that Shannon was paying so much attention to Noella, and Gina still struggled with Shannon’s claim that she was arrogant.
In a preview of the reunion airing tonight, Shannon accuses Gina of deliberately coming on to her all season, so perhaps the ladies are at odds once again.
RHOC: Shannon And Gina Kirchenheiter Had A Heated Reunion.
The preview begins with Andy Cohen questioning Shannon Beador about the legal advice she gave Gina Kirchenheiter two seasons ago when she was arrested for drunk driving. Shannon felt that Gina didn’t appreciate her help, even though she and Gina’s parents had thanked Shannon endlessly.
Gina Kirchenheiter felt that Shannon was holding up her help. Gina expressed to Shannon that she was embarrassed that Shannon kept bringing up the drunk driving story about Gina to others.
Shannon Beador explained again that she felt she had done more to help Gina than she would have done for other people. Although she acknowledged that Gina had thanked her, Shannon felt betrayed that Gina had “shot” her throughout the season, which Gina found ridiculous.
She went on to explain that when she met Gina, Shannon Beador had been going through a tumultuous divorce with her ex-husband David Beador and felt that Gina had not given her the support she deserved and that Gina had made no real attempt to get to know her.
Gina Kirchenheiter’s defence was that Shannon still belonged to Tres Amigas, her group of friends which also included Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson, and that Gina’s support was not needed.
With Shannon on the outs with RHOC queen bee Heather Dubrow, she took on new housewife Noella When Noella got lonely during the cast’s trip to Aspen, Shannon stepped in and helped comfort her friend. In turn, Noella supported Shannon when she fought with Gina, Emily and Heather this season.
