Last week, Shannon Beador was named Best Housewife Ever following an online vote that shocked millions of Bravo fanatics - and Shannon herself!

After all, Beador has only been on The Real Housewives of Orange County for one season and during that time, the feud between Tamra Barney and Lizzie Rovsek dominated the series.

But fans must have enjoyed the way Shannon watched from the sidelines, because at the end of the 64-gal tournament, Shannon had beaten out longtime favorites like NeNe Leakes, Lisa Vanderpump, and Bethenny Frankel.

In the clip above, Shannon thanks fans once again for voting for her...and still seems just as confused by the results as the rest of us. 

But while we may never understand how or why she won the award, we're certain that the prizes Shannon received will come in handy on the next season of RHOC.

Tamra Barney and Lizzie Rovsek were at each other's throats all season on The Real Housewives of Orange County, but don't think for a second that the feuding is over just because they're finished filming.

The OC frenemies have been using their Bravo blogs to take shots at one another for weeks, with the insults becoming more vicious after each episode of the Bravo reality series.

The online sniping first started to get ugly when Tamra posted Lizzie's phone number online, a move she still insists was a mistake.

Shortly thereafter, Lizzie slammed Tamra as a "mean girl" and a bully - claims that were certainly supported by Tamra's behavior throughout the season.

Now that The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion is in the bag, you might think that Tamra would ease up on hazing her first-year co-star. You would be wrong:

On part two of The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 reunion, embattled star Tamra Barney once again found herself under fire from multiple fronts.

First, checking off some other boxes, Shannon Beador and her green lifestyle are profiled. She defends her doctor and choices for her home and life.

Heather is grilled about making fun of Shannon’s hair color and says she was joking. Which we doubt, as she doesn't seem to have a sense of humor.

She is, however, pretty catty beneath that friendly facade. Speaking of appearances that don't hold up under scrutiny, we have Mrs. Lizzie Rovsek.

After complaining about her non-sex life all season, now she insists things are all good - amazing - on that front. One gets the feeling she is only fronting.

Lizzie is still rambling on about her birthday party, too, of course, which if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online comes as no surprise.

Tamra tries to apologize and say she gave Lizzie a year membership to her gym as a gift, but that excuse doesn't CUT it ... see what we did there?!

Tamra Barney has made a lot of enemies this season on The Real Housewives of Orange County, but she seemed to single out newcomer Lizzie Rovsek for a double-dose of bullying early on.

And yes, "bullying" is really the only word for it, as Tamra has stuck with the tried and true methods of the schoolyard in her effort to frighten Lizzie off.

First, Barney encouraged the other ladies to skip Lizzie's birthday party.

Then she posted Lizzie's phone number online. You can't make this up.

The whole season has played out like a bad high school movie, complete with incredibly petty jealousies. (Tamra has been quoted as saying that she believes Eddie Judge wants to "do" Lizzie.)

Lizzie's put up with a lot, but according to her latest Bravo blog entry, she draws the line at putting up with a nickname that Tamra just won't drop:

On The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 19, or part one of the reunion special, Tamra Barney was in the crosshairs once again.

If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you know how the back half of this season has gone on Bravo, and this was hardly a surprise.

She wasn't the only RHOC cast member under fire Monday, however.

From the moment the fab five took the reunion stage to rehash the Season 9 drama, it looked as if Tamra Barney was ready to straight up murder someone.

If she had to pick one person, Lizzie Rovsek would probably get the nod.

Heather Dubrow's shorter hair and bangs? Not getting it done. Other than that, they all look the same. And probably will for the next 20 seasons.

Let's hear it for botox, surgery and anti-aging hyperbaric chambers.

There was a time when these wild sexual freaks discussed what a Dirty Sanchez is (ask Dustin Diamond) before moving onto (somewhat) more serious topics.

Lizzie Rovsek and Vicki Gunvalson are willing to move past their issues with Tamra Barney, but that doesn't mean they foresee a friendship with their co-star.

Although she brought so much drama to The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 - drama that may get Tamra Barney fired - it's in the past.

Mostly. Rovsek strikes a measured, sympathetic note in her latest blog post, writing:

Bethenny Frankel vs. Jill Zarin & Kelly Bensimon
Remember them? Gone but not forgotten, the Bethenny Frankel vs. Jill Zarin tension marked the glory hears of the RHONYC. Jill wasn't alone in picking this fight. Kelly Bensimon, too, suggested Bethenny wanted her dead at one point, among other highlights.

“I am so sorry for what Tamra is going through in her life; I just don’t think it’s a good excuse to hurt other people ... we all go through hard times.”

“However there comes a time when you damage a relationship beyond repair and some of the things that have happened in the past few weeks are reprehensible."

“Will I forgive Tamra? Yes and I have. However, I don’t foresee a friendship with her.”

That's probably as good as Barney can hope for after this summer, which if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you know was epic.

If The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 finale was the swan song for embattled star Tamra Barney, she sure went out with a bang.

Previous reports have indicated that her if actions this season didn't get Tamra Barney fired already, it's only a mater of time. We'll have to wait and see.

In any case, her feud with Lizzie Rovsek erupted again last night.

Their now-infamous game, in which we may or may not have learned that Eddie Judge wants to f--k Rovsek, provided the fireworks to close out Season 9.

The off-camera truth-or-dare style party activity featured Eddie being asked whom he would rather marry, shag, or kill among the RHOC cast members.

He supposedly said Rovsek would be the one he’d want to “shag.” Lizzie, to Tamra, adamantly maintains that she said “marry” in the game, not "f--k."

“Whatever you think I said, I apologize,” Rovsek told Barney during a party on last night's intense episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Was Monday's The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 18, the Bravo flagship show's season finale, the most explosive of all time?

Probably not quite, but the embattled Tamra Barney simply couldn’t let bygones be bygones, and an unexpected cast member really raised the stakes.

Bringing up their infamous "game" - which you're well familiar with if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online - Tamra stirred the pot again.

Barney implored Lizzie Rovsek to change her story and admit she wanted to screw Eddie, who may or may not have said he wanted to f--k her.

Or marry her. It's unclear. But whether or not Eddie Judge wants to f--k Lizzie Rovsek, Tamra was not about to give in and neither was her adversary.

Eventually, Tamra realized the argument with Lizzie was fruitless as her husband was there and nothing was going to be talked out, but it took a twist.

The focus shifted to Shannon and Heather, a feud that ended up being much uglier as Terry Dubrow brought up David Beador's infamous comment.

"SPREAD THOSE LEGS!"

On The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 17, the ladies' trip to Bali took more dramatic turns, and Tamra dug herself even more of a hole.

If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online or on TV, or even just read about it afterward, you know it's all about Tamra Barney lately.

Not in a good way, either. She's put everyone through the wringer and last night, Vicki Gunvalson - her best friend through it all - was no exception.

There was definitely a divide among the women, as evident from the start of this trip: Two blondes and a brunette and two brunettes and a blonde.

This was obvious from their attire and right on down to how they behaved about every little thing, until finally the tensions boiled over and WATCH OUT.

Vicki, for all her annoying characteristics, has been balancing cast members and friends like it's her job. Which we suppose it is. But wow, she's good.

Embattled reality star Tamra Barney Judge has returned to her Facebook and her Bravo blog, and wasted no time in picking up her feud with Lizzie Rovsek.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star explains, “Sorry for the late blog, we have been enjoying our summer and just got home from vacation last night.”

She's making up for lost time. Barney says she's sick of talking about Lizzie's birthday, and that her co-star Rovsek is “self-centered” and “out for blood."

In what is quickly escalating into one of the more memorable Bravo beefs in recent years, Tamra's feud with Lizze will not die. She says of their recent drama:

“How many times do I have to say I am sorry I did not show up to [Lizzle's birthday]? My daughter was sick and there was NO WAY I would leave her."

Barney canceled at the last minute, citing her daughter Sophia’s illness, yet Rovsek accused her of lying and encouraging others to bail as well.
