Shannon Beador and her husband, David, headed south of the border to try and salvage their rocky marriage on Monday night's The Real Housewives of Orange County, and despite Vicki Gunvalson's help their marriage may still be headed south.
"Divorce stinks, and if I can be some sort of outside influence, I'm going to encourage them to stay together," said Gunvalson, who took the couple barhopping (and bar-top dancing) and also arranged for them to go horseback riding and enjoy a private lunch together.
Things certainly got real between the Beadors – whose marriage has been this season's main storyline – as they enjoyed a lunch that not only had stunning views but even more stunning revelations.

It's usually not cold in southern California, but it was downright chilly on Monday night's The Real Housewives of Orange County as Tamra Barney and Heather Dubrow's feud continued, and Shannon Beador's marriage faltered.
"The times David and I argue hurt my heart," said a tearful Beador, who visited a cardiologist due to chest pains from her stressful marriage. "David wrote an email to me. The last portion said he should move out for a while."
"This is rocking my world," she continued. "These are words I've never heard before. Divorce is not an option. I love my husband, and I want to grow old with him."

Shannon Beador tossed her annual holiday party on Monday night's The Real Housewives of Orange County, but Tamra Barney and Heather Dubrow deserved lumps of coal in their stockings by the time it was over.
"No Scrooge here tonight," Beador stated before the party. "I love Christmas, and I love to throw parties. When you put those two together, I'm on cloud nine."
"What I love most about the holidays is spending time with family and friends," said Dubrow. "People tend to get along better and have more fun."
Not so fast.

Oklahoma is known as part of Tornado Alley, but it was Vicki Gunvalson who came storming through the state on Tuesday's The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Gunvalson was not pleased to leave the OC to help daughter Briana look for a new home due to son-in-law Ryan's Midwestern military relocation.
"It scares me … we're totally in Tornado Alley," said Gunvalson, looking at a home that had an underground shelter. "You don't just build a shelter for the hell of it."

The Real Housewives of Orange County held a hoedown Monday night, but a mechanical bull nearly got the best of Tamra Barney while a raging bull (Heather Dubrow) locked horns with Shannon Beador.
Dubrow held a Western-themed party to celebrate the groundbreaking of the oceanfront lot for her new mansion, and the wives traded in their bling and Beamers for boots, cowboy hats and a ride on a mechanical bull.
"Leave it to Heather to make dirt look great," said "Tammy Sue" Barney. "She's brought in sets to make it look like a Western."

It was perhaps the most awkward date night in The Real Housewives of Orange County" history Monday night as Shannon Beador and her husband, David, attempted to rekindle the romance in their marriage.
"When your kids walk out the door and you don't know your husband, you're in trouble," said Beador, whose husband whisked her away to a hotel for a night away from their kids for the first time in their 13-year marriage. "It's like living with a stranger."
While at dinner, David tried to sweet talk his better half by discussing – wait for it – her need for "enhancement."

"She's just pushed me aside [for Brooks], and it's hard," Briana said.
"He didn't deserve to be annihilated by you," Gunvalson said, referring to last year's reunion, in which her daughter accused Brooks of leaving a message instructing her husband to hit her to keep her in line.
"You've told me he's verbally abusive," Briana continued.

The Real Housewives of Orange County celebrated Halloween on Monday night's episode, and the scariest part wasn't that Vicki Gunvalson admitted she still loved on-again, off-again boyfriend Brooks – it was that she actually liked the newest Housewife.
"Oh, joy," Gunvalson stated when Tamra Barney told her that Shannon Beador would be attending her Halloween party. "Another new bitch I gotta like."
But holistic Housewife Beador (who always keeps nine lemons in a basket for good feng shui energy) made a good impression on Gunvalson, who requires three things from friends.
