RHOC Star Admits She and Her Hubby Haven’t Touched in 6 MONTHS
“We’re in the same place that we were before he had the affair”
Put a fork in it!
“I think the last six months have been very stressful for you,” David says to Shannon. “And I don’t do well when you’re very stressed cause I essentially pull away when you’re stressed.” Shannon says that she’s been “stressed about Vicki” for the past six months; she’s been scared about what would happen if Vicki’s allegations about David abusing Shannon came out, even though its been a year. David says the allegations didn’t bother him, but he can clearly see that it bothered Shannon, who has gained 40 pounds since then.
“There was nothing I could do,” he says. “And I couldn’t convince you to let it go.” Shannon immediately took to the defense when David said that. She saw it as David coming at her, making it seem like she is obsessed. David laughed it off, saying, “We can keep talking about it if you want. I’m fine to talk about it.”
“It is what it is,” Shannon says in tears. “And I don’t want to b—h and moan and complain. I don’t want to be that person; I don’t. But you know, at a certain point… I just sit there and think… you renewed our vows and then you want nothing to do with me.”
The two realize their marriage has once again taken a turn for the worse. They don’t go on dates anymore, nor do they text all day anymore. “There’s ups and downs with everything,” David says.
Why’d you do it?
Shannon breaks down in her confessional, “I’m not afraid of the answer. I’m not afraid. I just want to know the truth. I just want to know what happened? If I did something, I’ll take responsibility. Just let me know what happened because it’s torture for me to try to figure out what happened.”
As everyone sits at dinner to celebrate Shannon’s birthday, David preys that their relationship will get back to where they were at their vow renewal, but Shannon isn’t feeling too confident in that. “If you wanted nothing to do with me, why did you renew the vows,” Shannon says off camera.
After the episode aired, Shannon took to her blog:
It is difficult to watch my birthday conversation with David. For all of you that are going to tell me to just keep my mouth shut and stop complaining, let me stop you there. I haven’t been bringing up this subject over and over. I don’t talk about it every minute. But on this one year anniversary of the vow renewal, you are actually seeing me talk about things from my heart. I had no intention of going into this subject, but because of the day, it just happened. Yes, I was stressed about the whole Vicki allegation situation because I didn’t want my family to get hurt. We have been through enough. But that was six months ago and I am having the hardest time realizing that David has been distancing himself from me.
Hopefully Shannon and David can get their relationship in a better place. Give them some advice in the comments and SHARE this article.
