The Real Housewives of Orange County celebrated Halloween on Monday night’s episode, and the scariest part wasn’t that Vicki Gunvalson admitted she still loved on-again, off-again boyfriend Brooks – it was that she actually liked the newest Housewife.
“Oh, joy,” Gunvalson stated when Tamra Barney told her that Shannon Beador would be attending her Halloween party. “Another new bitch I gotta like.”
But holistic Housewife Beador (who always keeps nine lemons in a basket for good feng shui energy) made a good impression on Gunvalson, who requires three things from friends.
“You have to make me laugh. I have to learn from you. What was the third? Hmmm Two of three ain’t good.”
Added Gunvalson, who’s now seeing a counselor to deal with the stress her relationship with Brooks is having on her and her family: “[Shannon’s] not 12. Kinda looks like she’s got some smarts to her. And she’s an Aries, so I’m gonna give her a shot.”
“Vicki likes nobody, and she’s hitting it off with Shannon. What is going on?” asked Barney. “Either Shannon has voodoo power, or it’s a full moon.”
