Are they shutting the Bea-door in this friendship?
Shannon Beador challenged Gina Kirschenheiter to “get to [her] level” on Wednesday evening’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” — and proceeded to name her longtime frenemy a “f—king a—hole” as she walked clear of their explosive argument.
“I hope for you that you can get to my level,” Beador, 57, mentioned, to which Kirschenheiter, 37, quipped again, “Let’s hope we can jump up to the bar.”
She added, “I really hope that. One day, maybe I’ll make it over!”
The ladies had been preventing over Kirschenheiter announcing that Beador could be “jealous” of her friendship with OG “RHOC” famous person Heather Dubrow.
“You know what the funniest part of it is? I’m so freakin’ busy in good ways. I’ve never been better with my kids, never been better with my personal relationship and never been better in my business,” the Real for Real founder instructed Kirschenheiter moments sooner than lobbing expletives at her.
“And you’re questioning that I’m jealous,” she persisted. “There’s no arrogance in that, Gina?”
Kirschenheiter — who recommended that Beador had perplexed her newfound self belief with conceit — then expressed pity for her onscreen adversary.
“At the end of the day, Shannon, I feel bad for you. I do. I feel bad for you and I’m not going to do this anymore. I’m not going to circle the drain with you and I won’t because I’ve moved on. I’m happy,” the CaraGala Skincare writer mentioned.
“Gina, put a pin in your ego!” an indignant Beador snapped again. “You’re a f—king a—hole!”
Despite their friction, Kirschenheiter instructed Page Six in December 2021 that she will be able to respect what Beador brings to “RHOC.”
“Four years later, I’m still trying to get to know Shannon!” mentioned Kirschenheiter, who joined in Season 13.
“As much as I don’t like Shannon, I love her. I really do and I think she’s an important part of this cast. I think she brings a very interesting point of view and element and resistance to rationality. And I think that’s really interesting to watch.”
“The Real Housewives of Orange County” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
