“The emotion for me was, you already know, the preliminary factor was anger, proper? So any person that has the, I assume, the wherewithal to make up a lie like that. So I used to be offended to start out. After which it shortly flipped to my daughter. My ideas began to maneuver in direction of her,” he stated. “The very last thing that I’d ever need her to assume is that I might do one thing like that to her mom. So for me, that’s the place the emotion flipped. And anybody will be capable to inform you that it’s exhausting for me to even point out her identify with out getting emotional.”
He then shared what it was like to inform his daughter concerning the scenario.
“We had been capable of deal with it together with her and it was an actual natural dialog. I feel you’ll see a few of that,” he expressed. “[I asked myself] how lengthy do I’ve to carry on to this data earlier than I’ve to have a sit down together with her and let her know what’s occurring so she’s not caught off guard in school with associates or no matter. In order that led to the emotion as effectively. We had an incredible dialog. She is so grounded and sensible … She chuckled. She had a extremely good time with it. And you already know, it was enjoyable.”
When requested in the event that they thought of quitting the present after the dishonest allegation, Shawn declared: “We by no means as soon as considered quitting the present … The one factor that we don’t do is let folks win in that form of approach. You understand, I’ll say that there are curler coaster moments the place it’s like, oh my God, what have we achieved? … however but no one’s gonna beat us like that.”
He then addressed the concept that folks can lie on the present. “Folks can proceed to lie and that’s the unlucky factor. Proper? … After which whenever you’re in a extra public platform, the exhausting half is something can get legs … I do know that there’s in all probability going to be different stuff as we get down the street right here. And that’s okay.”

Meredith, as you’ve seen from seasons previous, she’s at all times the one which’ll plant the seed after which she’s at all times bought any person that’ll run away with it and that’s just like what occurred right here. And you already know, I say disgrace on each of them.”
Shawn was additionally requested concerning the backlash towards Meredith over the concept that she would out somebody’s sexuality. After the episode aired, Meredith filmed a scene together with her son Brooks, who lately opened up about breaking apart together with his boyfriend, and a few followers claimed Meredith was utilizing her son’s sexuality to defend herself towards the backlash.
“My opinion is that there have been some strategic conversations behind the scenes. And I consider that after that episode aired, there was a complete bunch of back-peddling occurring. And you already know, she’s a wise girl. And I feel she took the chance to leverage her son and issues like that, understanding that this didn’t land fairly the way in which they needed it to,” he stated. “My thought is, you already know, if I had been a cheater and if that had been a factor, say that. Don’t make it about sexuality. I feel they tried to try this to, you already know, push the knife in somewhat bit deeper and it didn’t land the way in which they needed it to.”
Shawn hinted, nonetheless, that Meredith maybe didn’t plant the seed: “Perhaps Monica made it up. After which there was some conversations forwards and backwards and you already know, we’re nonetheless actually unclear the place it precisely got here from.”
He finally acknowledged, “My perspective on that is that [Monica’s] utilizing this as a chance to create storyline for herself … There’s not plenty of logical pondering that occurs when she begins battling it out with folks. So she’s prepared to go as little as she completely can to harm, destroy or defame anyone on the solid. No one’s exempt … And you already know, she actually doesn’t run round within the … the homosexual neighborhood that we take part in Salt Lake Metropolis. So, to me, it’s only a blatant mislead create story and simply attempt to damage any person.”
Relating to Monica’s on-screen fights with her mother, Shawn expressed, “I might simply by no means convey [my parents] on a nationwide tv to attempt to expose the scenario in that form of approach. You understand, for me, it’s simply reckless, it’s messy … So for me, I questioned the character of this individual.”
Shawn then doubled down on the declare that Meredith is now not welcome of their dwelling. “When any person comes for our character, our cash, our household … they don’t get a second likelihood with me,” he defined, “If Angie ever tried to persuade me that she must have Meredith right here for any specific cause, I cannot be right here for that. So I cannot have interaction in any form of a relationship together with her shifting ahead.”
Reacting to Monica’s declare that she went to the ER after falling down Angie and Shawn’s basement stars – which allegedly weren’t as much as code – Shawn acknowledged, “I didn’t know that occurred once we [had] that occasion … To me, it’s simply one other layer of the messiness and the weeds that she’s prepared to get into to form of create and perpetuate sure narratives that make her a sufferer … I don’t need anyone to get damage in my home, however the way in which our home is designed, we will do no matter we wish with it.”
He went on to say, “I’m sorry that she fell, however I can’t take duty for that. From what I perceive from among the those who form of witnessed the factor, it was similar to she slid down on her butt. So it’s like, I don’t understand how legs and stuff like that bought concerned.”
