Shannon Beador, Vicki Gunvalson, TRHOC

Despite whatever Vicki Gunvalson may be saying about her, Shannon Beador would like to make one thing abundantly clear: She does not and has not lied.

After the OG of the O.C. made the startling claim on The Real Housewives of Orange County that she knew a whopper of a secret that Shannon and her husband David would rather keep buried, one that they were lying about, Shannon's gone on the defense, hoping to convince fans that she's got nothing to hide before Vicki can finally blurt out whatever it is she thinks she knows.

"In the three years that I have known Vicki, one thing is certain — that she has mastered the art of deflection," she wrote in her Bravo blog. "In true Vicki fashion, she accused me of lying. I do not lie and I have not lied. She is making something up...again."

"And I was blown away at her threats to me during her interview commentary. She claims to have secrets about my marriage and that is a joke," she continued. "I am an open book that let everyone into a humiliating affair last year. We all know Vicki has the reputation of lying and deflection. To hear Donn say that Vicki is a 'lying sack of dog s--t' in the flashback kind of says it all."

And if you think Shannon's chummy behavior towards Vicki at Heather Dubrow's book party was the behavior of a person falling in line after being shaken by a threat, much like Heather and Tamra Judge did, she'd like to set the record regrading her intentions that night straight. 

"I have grown quite tired of people telling me that I haven't moved on from my issues with Vicki so I went into Heather's book party with the intent of having fun with her. I will never be her good friend, but that doesn't mean I can't share a cocktail or a laugh with her from time to time," she wrote. "So when I made the effort to do just that, it was almost hurtful to hear Tamra and Heather say that they think that I am 'afraid of Vicki' or that my interaction with her was 'odd.' Which is it? I never have been or will be afraid of Vicki Gunvalson."

As Shannon tells it, the mounting threat that Vicki posed had no impact on their interaction that night. "I will say one thing — had I been aware of the nasty threats and lies Vicki was conjuring up behind my back, I never would have made an effort to interact with her at all," she concluded.

Who do you think is telling the truth: Shannon or Vicki? Let us know in the comments below.
