Shannon Beador

Shannon Beador has broken her silence regarding her run-in with David Beador‘s ex-mistress, Nicole McMackin, at the USC football game. Shannon admitted that she spoke to Nicole first (and told everyone within earshot that she slept with her husband) but insisted that she never grabbed Nicole‘s arm.

On one hand, Shannon conceded that Nicole and her husband, Reed, go to the USC games regularly, but on the other hand, she questioned why they decided to sit 10 rows in front of Shannon and David. “They could buy a seat anywhere,” bemoaned Shannon. “I was shocked to see that she was there, so this time I am not going to roll over. I said, ‘You have a lot of nerve being here!'”


Shannon gave the statement above to Entertainment Tonight.

Speaking to People, Shannon further explained, “We are boosters. We’ve had these tickets for 10 years in the same place. They were aware of that. We just do not understand why they’d choose tickets in a huge stadium that are right in front of us.”

Shannon called out what she says Nicole‘s camp lied about, “They said I was screaming at them during the pre-game warm-ups. We got there after the game started, so that isn’t true.” and “I never touched her.”

What did happen according to the Real Housewives of Orange County star: “I was coming down the stairs after using the restroom and she was coming through the tunnel and we literally were inches apart,” shared Shannon. “I very calmly said, ‘You have a lot of nerve being here, Nicole.’ I thought, I always say nothing, and I have to tell her I’ve had it and she needs to stop flaunting herself in front of me.”

“She responded and screamed in my face ‘F–k you!’ and pointed her finger at me,” added Shannon. “Then I got angry. I’m human. I got angry and screamed to the stands, ‘This is who my husband had an affair with!'”

Shannon pointed out that, until now, she’s protected Nicole in the media. “I’ve protected her and her family,” she said. “I’ve never divulged her name, which I could have. I’ve not divulged the demented details that I could have. I only discussed on the show the repair process to my marriage. I’ve done nothing but take the high road and maintain my integrity through all of this.”

“All my husband and I want to do is move forward,” concluded Shannon. Yes, the same Shannon who made a spectacle of herself in public because Nicole and Reed were seated too close for comfort.

Shannon is nuts. Certifiable. That said, I don’t trust Nicole, either. Anyone who engages in an affair and then goes out of her way to put her own child on said affair’s child’s basketball team AND to befriend said affair’s wife, going as far to “girl talk” about marriage, is one sneaky bitch. They’re both messy.
