Shannon Beador is finally putting all of the speculation to rest! Both fans and Shannon’s The Real Housewives of Orange County castmates alike have wondered whether Shannon would be reaching down to retrieve her orange from the clutches of rock bottom.
Now, Shannon herself just revealed that she’s ready to RHOC and roll. She says she’s clocking in for Season 18, and she’ll be transparent about all of the things she’s gone through since last season.
Shannon confirmed her RHOC return
Shannon was out to support her loyal friend Jeff Lewis at an event for his show, Hollywood Houselift, where she spilled the orange-infused tea to The Messenger. She’s making a RHOC comeback in 2024. This is, of course, after getting arrested for turning her car into a wayward battering ram back in September. And after going through a messy split from John Janssen.
Shannon proudly declared, “I’m coming back!”
“I’ll be back for Season 18. I am excited. I want to be as authentic as possible and I’m going to show what I’ve gone through. I’m picking myself up, and I’m gonna become a better person from it.”
Amidst the chaos of her ex-boyfriend John’s alleged new romance with former RHOC star Alexis Bellino, Shannon proved she’s not one to crumble. “It’s been a rough couple of weeks,” she confessed. But, she described herself as “strong” and ready to “get through whatever I need to do.” Bravo, Shannon.
Shannon’s been working on herself
In an attempt to put herself first in this whirlwind of chaos, Shannon’s embarked on a fitness journey with Dr. Tim Ramirez.
She explained, “It’s called, ‘a lot of stress in the last few months’ diet, but I’ve been working very hard. I’ve made a lot of mistakes in the last few months, so I’ve been working hard on trying to transform myself and become a healthier person.”
She’s on a quest for redemption. Even Jeff Lewis – who hates everyone – showered Shannon with praise when asked about her return.
He shared, “I think she’s really, really been working on herself over the last six to eight weeks and it definitely shows. I think she’s going to go into this next season — because she was asked back — I think a very strong, confident new Shannon.”
So, as we eagerly await Season 18, let’s raise a glass (but maybe not while driving) to Shannon Beador! Let’s all pray to the Bravo Gods that Alexis also snatches her orange back. And, that Shannon’s Golden Retriever and unsuspecting DUI passenger, Archie, gets his own confessional. Season 18 could be shaping up to be one delightful dumpster fire.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK IT’S WISE FOR SHANNON TO RETURN TO RHOC IN LIGHT OF ALL THAT’S HAPPENED? WILL SHE ACTUALLY BE TRANSPARENT ABOUT IT ALL?
