A former makeup artist too Shannon Beador and Tamra Richter spills everything Real Orange County housewives Tea, and it doesn’t look so good for Shannon.
The makeup artist, Tommy William Echaves, went to his Instagram Stories Tuesday night to rant former client Shannon, dragging her for “unpredictable” and needy behavior, driving him and Tamra out of nowhere, being driven by the need to be famous and much more.
Read on to see what the ex-artist had to say about the OC stars, what went on behind the scenes, and what serious Shannon hue he has in his makeup bag of tools.
“Most of you all know that I am a HUGE fan of housewives and I had the opportunity to help Tamra Judge as a makeup artist,” Tommy began. “She was the best and super cute and most of all she liked the way I hit her. Tamra asks me if I can start doing Shannon’s makeup as she doesn’t have an artist this season so of course I jumped on it! “
“So, true to the Shannon show[‘s] Personality was great! She loved the way I did her makeup that I beat her up [with] 4-5 days[s] a week, ”continued the artist. “[I] I even taught her my technique and what I used to create the look that she loved. She even went to a MAC location and called me to tell the seller all of the products I had used so she could grab them. I didn’t mind at all that I was flattered that Shannon loved my job. “
“After being with Shannon for 6 months, 3-4 days a week and not just being her makeup artist, I was her therapist and thought of a friend when we talked about the men in her life,” he continued. “Shannon was so unpredictable and turned to Tamra at every opportunity. I think every time I did her make-up, she had Tamra speaking like a teenager who needed her ‘best friend’. “
“Shannon’s personality was taken over by this constant need to get famous. When she found out I wasn’t Instagram famous she was almost appalled 😔” Tommy continued in his story.
He continued, “She mocked her daughters [sic] Girlfriend because she has a piece of Honda while her daughter drives a Mercedes or BMW. One day Shannon needed a trip to see her friends [sic] home and asked me if I could take her … she got in my piece of s-t honda and made fun of my dirty windshield lol !! “
“Anyway, I’m not rich and I’m fine with that,” the makeup artist continued. “I liked our Honda, it was great for us. Well, to make things a lot shorter, after all this time with her and even choosing her outfits, she’s totally wrecked me. I would write to her and nothing. This is the lady who cried on my shoulder, had a breakdown in my makeup chair, and asked me to clean her room and hide in her closet so her current boyfriend wouldn’t know she wasn’t made up himself … “
“I even saw Shannon throw Tamra under the bus to a producer. THE ONLY REAL FRIEND CALLED YOU MORE THAN ONE DAY! “Tommy exclaimed, noting the feud between the two women.
“So I’m surprised I was shocked to hear what Shannon said about me,” he continued. “She had told people that I was annoying them and that I would not leave them alone. Do you know what that could mean for my reputation? So bad that even people who would never believe it did it.”
The makeup artist drove with texts from the RHOC Stern, citing the “stalking” Shannon alleged of him.
“Is she the ghost or am I chasing her? Lmao, ”he wrote of a text exchange that broke off at the end of last year.
“So Tamra left the show and that was the last dream of my OC Housewives,” he concluded. “When Shannon found out that Tamra was not coming back, she decided she didn’t need her either and wiped her out. Everyone is available to Shannon, including those who were there for her.”
Tommy continued with his prospects after Shannon let him dry: “I was very depressed that my talents meant nothing to her. Most of the time I was upset, insecure and wondering what I’m going to do for work now 😰[.]”
To close his post, Tommy added that he has since “forgiven” Shannon and that shortly after she “spooked” him, he found another great job opportunity at his church.
He added, “The point of this story… God has his own plans for you. What is meant for you is yours. God will find you when you open your heart. God will send perfect strangers as angels to lift you up from everything you go through. “
