Say what you want about Shannon Beador, but she has no issue when it comes to putting herself out there on Real Housewives of Orange County– especially when it comes to her recent weight gain. She had no problem discussing jump in dress sizes (and blaming it on Vicki Gunvalson). She even took her top off to get an assessment from her trainer in front of the cameras- which was met to some brutal criticism.
It seems like things are only getting better for Shannon Beador ever since she announced her new status as a single lady. She even went on a girls trip with two of her daughters over the weekend to attend the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas. Unfortunately, one of Shannon’s daughters had to miss out on the trip because she had to compete in a basketball tournament.
Shannon and her (soon to be) ex husband David Beador went to USC games all the time with their girls- even after the divorce announcement. So it’s not surprising that Shannon and the girls made the trip out to Texas to support their favorite team.
2017 has been a banner year for the cursed reality TV marriage. It seemed like every time we blinked another reality star filed for divorce!
Some were predictable (ahem Luann de Lesseps and Shannon Beador), while others came as a complete surprise (like Little Women: LA‘s Briana Renee FINALLY kicking sleazy Matt Ericson to the curb or Dr. Jackie Walter‘s husband being caught cheating). And in the middle there were a whole host of other unlucky in love really stars. Including a who a few who actually tied the knot ON TV – only to split in front of the cameras as well.
Below is our rundown of 2017’s reality star divorces. Here’s hoping for many less in 2018!
Jeff Lewis is one of the few Bravolebrities that can appear on Watch What Happens Live while their show is in between seasons. He is so ingrained in everything Bravo, has close friendships with fellow Bravolebrities, and has opinions on almost every year. If Andy Cohen ever wanted to go on vacation, Jeff would be a great fill-in host for a few nights.
Jeff shared his love for Vanderpump Rules, his Real Housewives of Orange County insight as a close friend of Shannon Beador, a status update on his relationship with Zoila Chavez, and plans to have more children with Gage Edward.
Shannon Beador may not know how to work an iPhone, but she sure knows how to assemble a legal team! The Real Housewives Of Orange County star has hired a “forensic expert” to review David Beador’s income and assets. And Shannon is demanding that David pay the $25k for the additional legal expenses! So, are we looking at a new spinoff of Forensic Files: David’s Monkey Bars? In any case, it’s certainly a baller move by Ms. Beador. Well played.
Shannon’s separation from David made reality TV headlines this fall when the couple announced they were splitting. This came after two seasons featuring Shannon trying to get over the affair her husband had with an Orange County woman (who was also married), and rising tensions in their household. Now that actual divorce proceedings are underway, it’s time to think about finances – and Shannon thinks David is lying about how much money he has!
New docs reveal that Shannon seeks primary physical custody of her three daughters, and also that her monthly expenses outweigh my yearly income. Somebody’s gonna have to slow her holistic spending roll!
The Real Housewives Of Orange County star seeks to nullify 17 years of marriage based on “irreconcilable differences” when she filed for divorce this week. Shannon is asking David for spousal support, and clearly based upon court documents of her spending she’s gonna need it!
This was a brutal season for Shannon Beador, but she seems to be taking it all in stride and owning her shit. She announced that she and David Beador have separated. She has admitted to projecting her feelings on the other women in the cast. She has apologized for blaming her weight gain on stress from Vicki Gunvalson.
Now she seems like she is ready for a fresh start and that new beginning might include a friendship with former enemy Kelly Dodd.
Your favorite reality stars were out and about this week and of course they documented it all for social media.
Shockingly, Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador posted a photo with soon-to-be-ex David Beador and their daughter after they announced their intent to divorce. Stassi Schroeder shared a picture from her trip to Paris. Kelly Dodd hung out with Chef Ben Robinson. Luann de Lesseps rocked braids and hung out with RHONY alum Kelly Bensimon for a mirror selfie. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Camille Grammer held her own in Washington, DC.
