“I think she’s the worst. I think she’s the worst casted, the worst, and I don’t think there’s anything entertaining about her,” said Dodd. “Her boyfriend is a dud, her house is a dud, she doesn’t have multiple houses, she’s trying to do some fake skincare line which is b*****.”

The mother of one then shared that she appreciates Beador’s presence on RHOC. She also preceded to compare Beador to Kirschenheiter.

“I think she’s entertaining yeah, Shannon Beador has a lot of ideas. She’s in there. She knows how to throw a party, she’s good at her job. I think she’s entertaining. She’s funny, Gina’s not funny. Shannon’s smart, Gina’s dumb,” said Dodd.

Vicki Gunvalson Shared Her Opinion on the RHOC Season 17 Cast

Former RHOC star Vicki Gunvalson left the series after its fourteenth season. While speaking to Access Hollywood’s Housewives Nightcap in October 2022, the Bravo alum discussed the stars of RHOC season 17. She noted that her former co-star Tamra Judge has made a return to the series after a two-year hiatus. The 60-year-old also referenced that former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Taylor Armstrong will be making an appearance on RHOC season 17.

“I think that everyone has their own little life and that everyone is going to be exposing it. I don’t know what Bravo is thinking behind the doors. I just don’t know. So to me, it was a cohesive cast when we were all getting along or when we weren’t getting along, we had a lot of history together and now there’s no history with Taylor and the girls,” said Gunvalson.

This is just one of the atrocities from thinking social media is real life. Shannon is allowed to be friends with anyone she wants. Kelly is a good time. People need to lighten up
