I have always been a fan of Shannon, but it's been really hard to watch her this season. Actually it was last season, too. She should not be on reality television right now. I guess perhaps I was naive in thinking we'd see more "Fun Shannon" this season, now that David is gone. I should've realized someone like Shannon will always find the negative, even when moving into a better situation. I can't defend her behavior, even if I don't really like anyone else's behavior either. Tamra remains a snake. Gina is too smug in her interactions with Shannon, seemingly taking pleasure in Shannon's meltdown, and Emily joins in.
I'm genuinely worried about Shannon's mental health, and of course the ladies attempted to address this in the WORST way possible, a screaming match on camera, after several rounds of drinks. Not how you do it. But they were not entirely wrong. And God help me if I didn't find Vicki to be the most rational and the voice of reason in all of that. She wasn't hysterical and screaming, and talked about going on antidepressants herself. While the others continued to bash Shannon when she was gone, Vicki seemed hesitant to do so, voicing that they should be worried about her, and not talk about her. Perhaps her experience of being the outcast last year has given her a modicum of empathy? Like I said, God help me.
The irony about Shannon not wanting to go on medication because she's "not crazy": to my eyes, she looks a lot more crazy with all her alternative treatments and Dr. Moon than she would going to a psychiatrist for some meds and seeing a qualified therapist on a regular basis. (and not that wacky couples therapist she and David saw, who staged Shannon's "death.")
