The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Shannon Beador’s divorce from David Beador has been going on since 2017. Just like in their marriage, we have watched endless drama play out in their split. David even representing himself instead of hiring an attorney. And the former couple’s ongoing battles over support payments, custody issues, and assets.
Shannon and David finalized their divorce on April 25th and details of the divorce were kept private. Of course, such details have a way of leaking out-and now we have a glimpse into the biggest D-I-V-O-R-C-E in the OC since Vicki Gunvalson split from the long-suffering Donn Gunvalson.
Great news everyone! Our long, national nightmare has finally ended! No, we haven’t reached world peace, but this is almost as good. Everyone’s favorite Rock of Love throwback, Shannon Beador, has reached a divorce settlement with ex-husband, David Beador. Thanks to God, Buddha, and Dr. Moon, the Real Housewives of Orange County mama’s suffering has come to a close! No, I’m just kidding, then we wouldn’t have a show.
Shannon and David went through the proverbial ringer during their marriage. Vodka, “the affair“, and mystical hypochondria were only a few of the culprits in the demise of their union. However, the couple did go through extreme measures in an attempt to resolve their numerous issues. Remember when David had to pretend Shannon was dead during a therapy session? Quite frankly, I also required therapy after what we viewers endured when all of this was going down… Thankfully for all of us, Shannon and David Beador are NO MORE, so now comes the good part. Settlement time, baby!
As far as Real Housewives divorces go, the split between Shannon Beador and David Beador is one of the longest. And ugliest. Certainly trumping her friend Vicki Gunvalson’s split from Donn Gunvalson. And rivaling the years-long divorce drama of her Real Housewives of Orange County bestie Tamra Judge and ex Simon Barney.
Since filing for divorce in December of 2017, the former couple has been battling it out in court. Over everything from spousal support to custody matters related to their three daughters. There currently seems to be no end in sight to the conclusion of the former couple’s divorce negotiations. And now David claims that Shannon’s income is much higher than his. He is asking to have his support payments lowered.
I am sure that I am not the only Real Housewives of Orange County fan that was disappointed by the nap-inducing Season 13. Come on, Bravo! Let’s up the drama! One thing that has been a constant on the show is Shannon Beador and David Beador’s marital struggles. Oh, and Dr. Moon’s treating Shannon with the
weirdest newest homeopathic treatments.
During a previous season, RHOC fans watched Shannon struggle to forgive her husband for his infidelities. They attended a couples’ retreat, where one of the exercises was holding a” fake” funeral for Shannon. That was creepy! Maybe Shannon and frenemy Tamra Judge should hit up that retreat to have a faux funeral for their toxic friendship.
Last night was part three of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion. Which means this bizarre season is finally over. Part 3 was all about Shannon Beador, as pretty much every part of everything is. As Shannon said, “I’m sorry for being me me me me me!”
Is Shannon crazy? Is Shannon an emotional wreck? Are the voices in Shannon’s head actually Tamra Judge reading a script from David Beador‘s iPhone on how to manipulate and condescend Shannon into a meltdown? #yes
But first a Kelly Dodd montage! Kelly is dating, dating, dating and ignoring
Jolie who Michael Dodd is dating. But Vicki Gunvalson isn’t! Obviously, she is very invested in what is going on in Michael’s life.
Let’s be honest. The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion episodes have been better than the regular episodes this season. Then again, that’s not saying a lot. The ladies are really bringing it. FINALLY! Let’s hope this continues into Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14.
Last night was part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion. Shannon Beador found herself behaving like a real-live normal woman for a change.
Part one of the reunion ended with Kelly Dodd screaming into the phone and crying. Part 2 opened with Vicki Gunvalson apologizing for repeating a rumor she heard about Kelly using cocaine. While that is all nice and good, we know that Vicki’s apology is as sincere as the one Kelly gave for calling Vicki a “pig” and a “fat ass.” Shannon, however, ermerges as the unlikely voice of reason when she points out that the negativity and tit for tat is really hitting too low and isn’t making either woman feel (or look) good. And no amount of plastic surgery erases a bad attitude!
Left to her own devices without editing or intervention Vicki Gunvalson will always shoot herself in the foot, then still try to put on heels and hobble away. Last night’s segment of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion was the perfect example of Vicki at her most Vicki-ness. Reunion part 1 was also way better than anything we’d seen all season.
The most important part of any reunion is to dissect the outfits. First of all, Shannon Beador looks great! I don’t know if it’s the glowy spray tan indicating a break from Dr. Moon‘s holistic practices of wiping Shannon’s entire body in tan resistant mineral powders to ward of surface level UV free radicals, or the 30lb weight loss, or finally shedding her toxic friendship with Tamra Judge, but Shannon looks better than we’ve seen her in years. THIS is the divorced Shannon we were craving all season!
