Shannon opens up about her divorce

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.

Now that Shannon has dropped about some dead weight (David Beador), she’s more motivated than ever to get rid of any extra pounds and she has her bestie Tamra Judge there for support.

In an interview with Bravo’s The Daily Dish, Shannon admitted, “I am so grateful for my friendship with Tamra. She is such a supporter of me and she realizes that you have ups and downs.”

Shannon explained, “She’s been very supportive through my ups and downs because she cares about me and she definitely wants me to lose weight. She’s very proud of me now for where I am. It’s been really nice to have that support because whether I gain it back  or whether I don’t, she’s my friend no matter what.” That seems like something Shannon needs- especially after all of the hate her trainer Dr. Tim got for keeping it real with her during a Real Housewives of Orange County episode.aQ1

Shannon said, “I know there’s been a lot of backlash about my trainer Dr. Tim saying ‘wow’ when I took my shirt off, but as a trainer, I appreciate and expect that sort of response from him because that’s what’s gonna motivate me into action. I would have been angry with him if he said ‘Oh you’re good.’ He needs to be hard on me because it kind of scared me like ‘You’ve got to change something because you’re not in a healthy place right now.'” Which makes sense. She’s paying him to lose weight, not to feed her lies.

Plus, these two relationships have given Shannon some much needed balance. She explains, “I appreciate his honesty because I have my friend Tamra that’s always there cheering me on. Both Dr. Tim and Tamra have been such an amazing and positive influence on me.”
