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.

Shannon Beador Accepts Best Housewife Ever Award!

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.


She’ll definitely need those pink boxing gloves if she plans on flaunting her Best Housewife Ever wine goblet in front of the other ladies. 

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online at TV Fanatic to relive Shannon’s one and only season on the show.
