On The Real Housewives of Orange County episode “Seeing Red,” Vicki Gunvalson’s boyfriend Steve Lodge is hounded by the ladies. First up is Tamra Judge; she hounds Steve by demanding that he propose to Vicki. At Eddie’s birthday party (which has a red valentine-like theme), Kelly Dodd asks her former fremeny Shannon Beador if she should confront Steve. Shannon gives good advice to Kelly who is known for being confrontational. Shannon tells Kelly: “When you talk to him, try to be as non-confrontational as possible just so you get your point across. Because you have a valid point.” Kelly asks, “So if I went up to him and says, F—k you for talking s—t about me, wouldn’t go well?” Shannon says no, it wouldn’t.
Kelly then pretends to address him cordially, “Good afternoon, Mr. Lodge.” Shannon feeds her the line, “I don’t want to cause a big scene right now but I do want to let you know that my feelings are hurt based on what happened, and I’m still upset.” Kelly kids that Shannon should write that down for her. When Kelly leaves the table to approach Steve, she offers Shannon a piggy-back ride. Shannon declines but does follow her closely behind. The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Mondays at 9pm on Bravo.
