It is no secret that I am a fan of Bravo’s Reality Shows. I am a huge Real Housewives fan. I think I have watched everyone but there are some I love better than others. And then there are some housewives that I just connect with a way that doesn’t normally happen. This season while watching Shannon Beador Real Housewives of Orange County, I have caught glimpses of myself.
I can so sympathize with Shannon as I am struggling with all the weight I have put on the past few years. Stress will do that to you, my friend. And also like Shannon Beador, I am dealing with relationships that are tumultuous, to say the least.
It seems Shannon Beador Real Housewives is my soul housewife as I so can understand how she wants people to like her it seems like she has the open mouth insert foot syndrome like me. I am easily slighted like she is. There is nothing I would rather do than hang out with a group of friends but it seems I am the one initiating the calls, texts, and get-togethers. It seems that they have time for everyone else but me.
I will have to say I can see why Shannon Beador Real Housewives feels insecure. Her children are growing up like mine are and she is searching for a new role in this world. I have been doing exactly that in the last few years. Branching out more blog-wise, making myself come out of my comfort zone and getting out of the house more.
It doesn’t come easily to me, just like it doesn’t come easy to Shannon Beador Real Housewives of Orange County, but just like Shannon, I am working through issues that will make me stronger on the other side.
I will have to say that I admire Shannon for broadcasting her business for all the world to see. She is in fact I think the bravest housewife there is because it is easy to pretend like nothing is wrong and you have a ton of money etc but it is harder to admit that you are struggling and that you are not perfect and that you just want someone to hear you and to know that you are loved.
That is why Shannon Beador Real Housewives of Orange County is the housewife I am most like.
