“I totally lied to Shannon and I feel like a jerk!” Barney wrote on her Bravo blog.

To recap, Barney told Heather Dubrow about an email that Beador had received from her husband. She and her husband have been having marital problems for quite some time now, so Beador confided in Barney and asked her not to tell anyone. Thinking that Dubrow normally never tells a secret, Barney told Dubrow – only to have it spread like wildfire.

“Yes, I will take total blame for it all,” Barney wrote. “I should have never told anyone and I feel really bad about it.

Barney wrote that she has told Dubrow secrets in the past, so she felt she could trust her with this information; she wrote that she was concerned about her friend’s “excessive” drinking.

“It is just not [Dubrow’s] character to repeat something that was told to her in confidence,” she wrote. “It was not like we were sitting at a table making fun of her and her marriage issues.

“It was two concerned friends worried about a new friend that was dealing with some deep problems.”

Barney wrote that she lied to Beador when she first confronted her because she panicked. Her previous experiences with Dubrow’s trustworthiness led her to be caught off guard by the housewife’s transgression.

“At that moment I had was in shock, I wanted to talk to Heather and find out what happened — we all know how these things get twisted,” Barney wrote.
