The Real Housewives of Orange County Recap: The Shade Queen

by at .

Monday's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County was light on the nice, and heavy on the mean. 

It picked up in the immediate aftermath of Shannon Beador's QVC debut, and she was on a high. 

She invited all of the ladies over to her house for a celebratory dinner. 

Gina Kirschenheiter Cries

Gina Kirschenheiter was in attendance, and as you know if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, she has butted heads with some of the ladies over her looming divorce. 

The 34-year-old admitted that she was scared at the thought of "being a grown-up" when the divorce gets finalized. 

"I've never been alone…I'm scared," cried Gina as she continued to speak to the ladies about it. 

Gina immediately took issue with the fact that Shannon did not ask her how things were.

"Just ask me how my f***ing day was," Gina yelled as she cried.

"'I'm glad I'm out of this one," complained Shannon as Gina continued to sob.

"I am noticing a pattern in Shannon's behavior, of her really not caring about me at all…Shannon does have this way of just looking through you," said Gina.

"It shouldn't take this much time for her to acknowledge my existence, it shouldn't take this much time for her to not be an a**hole," she continued.

But Shannon was quick to tell Kelly Dodd the real reason why she did not care for Gina.

"She's 20 years younger than me… and she stirred the pot a few times with me," Shannon said to her friend. 

It makes sense that Shannon would want to keep the new additions away from her because she wants to maintain some sort of storyline to have her contract picked up for another year. 

If these new women have a more significant presence, she runs the risk of being demoted to the dreaded "friend" status. 

What's more, the new housewives come at a lower price tag because they haven't been part of the show for as long. 

Elsewhere, Emily questioned whether it would be a wise decision to attempt to have another baby with one of the embryos she had left from her fertility treatments.

Emily was open about her almost dying after suffering six miscarriages on a recent episode of the Bravo hit, so it's fully understandable that her husband would be apprehensive about trying to conceive again. 

"I don't think it's right that you keep pushing me in that direction," Shane said, but Emily wasn't ready to back down.

"But I've always wanted more than one girl," she said.

Emily was told that carrying another child could kill her following what happened the last time, so it's a difficult situation for anyone to be in. 

It remains to be seen whether Shane will change his stance on the matter, but we're inclined to believe he won't.
