'RHOC' Season 15 Finale: Why did Braunwyn dig up dirt on Elizabeth? Fans slam housewife for blaming Shannon
Shannon Beador and Braunwyn Windham Burke shared a great rapport last season, but Season 15 saw both the housewives locking horns
It seems like things between 'Real Housewives of Orange County' stars Shannon Beador and Braunwyn Windham Burke aren't going to settle down anytime soon. The duo shared a great rapport last season, but Season 15 saw both the housewives locking horns over Braunwyn, accusing Shannon of saying things that the latter claims she never said. It all began when Braunwyn went around telling the ladies that Shannon called fellow housewife Gina Kirschenheiter's new house "sad and depressing". The ladies fought over it for weeks, before finally putting the matter aside after Shannon tested positive for Covid-19.
Braunwyn went above and beyond to help out Shannon and her family during a difficult time, which briefly helped the ladies to reconcile. But things once again went south when Braunwyn began digging up dirt on the new housewife, Elizabeth Lyn Vargas. Braunwyn and the other housewives were confused about Elizabeth's constantly changing stories about her past and marriage, so the housewife decided to take the matter into her own hands and did some research online and discovered that the new housewife might not be as financially strong as she boasts.
This landed Braunwyn in trouble with the other housewives, as they felt that she had gone a bit too far by trying to dig up dirt on her fellow housewife. But Braunwyn conveniently washed off her hands from the deed by claiming that Shannon sowed the seeds into her head about Elizabeth, and she just acted on Shannon's prompts. In her green room interview, the housewife compared Shannon to a "mafia boss" who gets others to do her dirty work, while she keeps her hands clean and watches everything from the sidelines.
During the finale, while the ladies were having a small gathering on the beach, Braunwyn was confronted about Shannon instigating her to dig up dirt on Elizabeth. Braunwyn still stuck to her story and continued to insist that Shannon was the one who egged her into doing her little research. Shannon, on the other hand, was mortified on hearing Braunwyn's accusations and claimed that she never did any such thing.
While the ladies continue to point fingers at each other over why Braunwyn dug up dirt on Elizabeth, fans however slammed the housewife for putting the blame on Shannon. A fan tweeted, "OMG Shannon did not make Braunwyn hire a PI to investigate to Elizabeth. She did it on her own instead of taking care of her babies. This is the 2nd time this season she lied and blamed Shannon. #RHOC." "Sooooo... Braunwyn.... Shannon controls your actions? Disgusting. #RHOC," wrote another fan. Another annoyed fan commented, "@braunwyn you do everyone’s dirty work without anyone asking you to because you’re a moron! #RHOC."
