Shannon Beador is wrapping up her second season on the Real Housewives of Orange County, and she’s learned a thing or two about how to read people. So much so, that the reigning Rookie of the Year quite confidently picked out who she would become friends (and frenemies) with if she ever joined a different Housewives city. Let’s find out which ‘Wives made Shannon’s cut:
When it comes to the Georgia Peaches, there’s one woman who she does find sweet. “I would be friends with NeNe [Leakes], because she’s a little firecracker,” she told WetPaint. “I don’t think I would be good friends with Phaedra [Parks]. Sorry.” Would Shannon be intimdated to join the Real Housewives of Atlanta? Nope! In fact, she thinks she could teach those ladies a thing or two. “I’d tell those ladies like it is, but I’d also teach them that you don’t need to fight so much or, what do they say on that show? Throw so much shade.”
As for the city that never sleeps, Shannon knows exactly who would push her buttons. "Even though I like her and I’ve met her, I think on the show I would spar with Ramona [Singer]," she said. Which is ironic considering her proposed bestie. “I would be closest to Sonja [Morgan], because she’s a kick in the pants and she’s old school and she’s such a tasteful lady. I love that about her."
There are no current plans for a Housewives swap, but Shannon believes she has plenty to offer the East Coast. "I’d bring a little California fun to the New York Housewives.”
