Shannon Beador: My New Boyfriend Will NEVER Be on RHOC!

Shannon Beador is in the middle of a messy, contentious divorce, but she also has a new boyfriend.

While she wants to ban David Beador from appearing on The Real Housewives of Orange County, fans would love to see her new romance captured by Bravo’s cameras.

But apparently, fans won’t be seeing her new love on TV. Here’s why:

According to RadarOnline, Shannon Beador is very aware that everything about her, her life, her family, and her acrimonious divorce are under a microscope.

“Every single aspect of Shannon’s life is on public display.”

That goes with the territory of being a reality star.

But while she’s mostly okay with it, she is seeking to keep her new boyfriend, Alex, off-screen.

“So she wanted this to just be between the two of them.”

That is absolutely understandable.

Shannon, the report says, is not the only one who feels this way.

“And Alex agreed.”

In fact, it sounds like this was as much his wish as hers.

“He doesn’t want to be on camera.”

Not everyone is cut out for a life as a reality star.

“And neither of them are interested in him appearing on RHOC.”

That’s good. Besides, Shannon has plenty of storyline without him.

That said, though Shannon’s family and divorce and weight loss journey and friendships will probably be the focus, we can expect to at least hear about him.

“Shannon does talk about Alex and references her newfound relationship on the upcoming season.”

That’s good. Fans will want to stay updated and we’re sure that she wants to share. Just … up to a point.

“She is keeping him to herself right now and is keeping their relationship out of the spotlight.”

That is totally fair.

“The two of them are very happy together and are quite serious already.”

Reports say that he has even met her daughters. It sounds like they’re really getting along well.

“They just complement each other very well.”

We should note that David got himself a hot, younger girlfriend several months ago.

Some wonder if Shannon may end up getting into trouble, as her fellow Real Housewife, Kenya Moore (of RHOA), did.

See, Kenya married her husband, Marc Daly, in secret. She did not tell anyone or invite Bravo’s cameras.

Not only did she force the cameras to miss this major life milestone, but Marc refused to appear on camera.

For an entire season, she seemed to be on the brink of losing her job. (Marc actually changed his mind and surprised her with an on-air appearance)

Will Shannon repeat that mistake?

Well … probably not. Right now, she and Alex are still dating. Bravo’s cameras don’t have to capture every aspect of your life.

If she and Alex get engaged, then yes, they will have to talk about him appearing on the show.

(This might be our favorite photo of Shannon. The context, in which she was on a date with Alex to see a Poison concert, doesn’t matter)

We’re glad that Shannon is finding happiness and we of course wish her the best in this new relationship.

As fans learn more and more about David Beador’s cruel treatment of Shannon, they’re happier about the couple’s divorce.

But it sounds like it’s going to be a long fight. Remember, David reportedly had the water turned off at her house out of spite, and is said to have yelled obscenities at her in the courthouse.

We hope that this time with Alex can give her the happiness that she deserves.

David Beador: Cruel, Vile Text Messages to Shannon Beador Exposed

Shannon Beador’s divorce is in full swing. And we’d heard that David Beador was furious over how much he’s paying Shannon each month.

But it looks like there’s been more behind-closed-doors nastiness that no one’s seen until now.

Some of David’s private text messages to Shannon have been revealed, and they are heartbreakingly cruel.

Back in September, The Real Housewives of Orange County star and her husband separated after reportedly living separate lives for a long, long time.

In October, they made it official, filing for divorce.

What was initially going to be an amicable divorce, complete with the couple continuing to do activities with their three teenage daughters on a regular basis, broke down into a deeply acrimonious divorce.

By December, Shannon was tired of David’s behavior and started being more aggressive in the divorce.

Though it was reported that David was “shaking with anger” and cursing at Shannon after the court ruled on how much child support and spousal support he would need to pay Shannon, fans may be shocked when they hear these explosive text messages.

Shannon Beador did an interview with Jeff Lewis, Jenni Pulos, and Gage on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM channel, Radio Andy.

And … it seems like Shannon ended up getting a little blindsided, because Jeff Lewis had some text messages that she had received that she apparently hadn’t realized that she’d sent to him.

“You accidentally sent me a few texts of a conversation between you and David,” Jeff tells her. “I wanted to prove to the listeners how David has moved on.”

David Beador has a young, hot girlfriend, but that’s not what Jeff means.

Jenni Pulos reads the texts, which are attributed to David, and they are stomach-churning.

“F–k you. So tired of you. You f–king disgust me. F–k you. What do you have to do? Eat? Because you can’t get off your fat ass.”

This isn’t the first time that we’ve heard of David fat-shaming his ex for her (genuinely minor) weight gain. It’s said that David stopped loving her when she became “fat.”

Shannon responded with shock — not over the content of the texts, but over the fact that Jeff had them.

“Oh my gosh you guys. What do you mean I sent that to you? Are you kidding me? Oh my God. Oh my God. That was a couple months ago.”

She says that she’s not receiving texts of that nature from David now.

Jenni went on to read yet another text.

“World ending tonight? You get out of your pajamas today? Sleep ’til two. The sad part is your b–ch behavior is normal for you. F–k you.”

Shannon protests, saying: “Stop it, you guys!”

But those texts are pretty horrifying.

It’s always strange to hear anyone judge or dislike someone else for what they allegedly eat or what time of day they wake up.

(In fact, some would question what the point of being a millionaire is if you don’t sleep until the afternoon)

It’s worse to hear those messages sent from someone who spent years married to the recipient, who once loved her.

Some people can’t fall out of love without falling into hate.

To be clear, we can’t vouch for the veracity of these text messages. Shannon indicated that they were the real deal, however.

It looks like there are a couple of possibilities for how this came up.

One, it could be that Shannon was trying to send a screenshot of them to her attorney and accidentally sent them to Jeff Lewis.

She’s 53 and, honestly, even the most tech-savvy Millennial or Gen Z could get distracted and do the same.

Two, however, it could always be that Shannon had quietly arranged for her own on-air ambush in order to leak the texts while playing innocent.

Considering the content of those alleged text messages, who could blame her?

Shannon Beador: Feuding with Tamra Judge Over Friendship with David Beador?

We know how much financial support Shannon Beador’s receiving each month, but we also know that this is court-ordered. She and David are divorcing … and things are not amicable.

But you know who seems to get along just fine with Shannon’s ex? Her “friend,” Tamra Judge.

And Shannon is reportedly furious over this betrayal.

A source tells RadarOnline that Shannon feels betrayed by Tamra Judge, because Tamra’s husband Eddie is still hanging out with David Beador despite this contentious divorce.

Considering how hostile things are with David right now, every time that Shannon sees evidence that Eddie and David are still bro-ing out, she feels betrayed.

“Shannon thinks that it is really messed up.”

In her view, Tamra — who knows what it’s like to get divorced — should put her foot down about Eddie’s continued association with David.

“She does not understand why Tamra allows Eddie to hang out with David when she is supposed to be her best friend in the world.”

David Beador and Eddie Judge Hang Out

Evidence like this photo, which features both Eddie and David, reportedly drives Shannon up the wall.

From the start of the divorce, Tamra has made a big show of being Team Shannon.

She voiced her support for Shannon on social media.

And she even tipped off Shannon, it’s said, to the existence of David Beador’s young hot new girlfriend.

“Tamra was the first one to tell Shannon about Lesley, and even called him out on New Year’s Eve when she learned that he spent the holiday with his new girlfriend!”

And one has to wonder if Tamra only knew this because of Eddie’s continued association with David.

This report goes onto say that Tamra has been very defensive about this.

“Tamra told Shannon that she really had no idea that David and Eddie were still hanging out.”

That seems to be a hard pill to swallow, as the two men aren’t exactly being covert.

Shannon, it seems, doesn’t believe it.

“She thinks that Tamra isn’t telling the truth, because there is so much proof that David and Eddie are still close.”

It is, as we said, hard to miss.

To make this situation stranger, Tamra and Shannon are supposed to be best friends.

Tamra is a fitness guru and helped Shannon lose weight after Shannon put on a modest amount of weight thanks to stress.

And Tamra is personally aware of how stressful divorces can be.

Tamra is estranged from her daughter, who accused her mother of emotional abuse — which she says was particularly bad as she was getting divorce.

(She would allegedly make negative statements about Simon Barnes to her children and, when she was unhappy with them, she would allegedly call them “Simon” to compare them to her hated ex)

So it’s not like Tamra thinks that divorce isn’t a big deal.

Shannon is understandably under a lot of stress as she tries to go through this contentious divorce while looking after her three teenage daughters.

It was reported by someone close to Shannon that David became so petty after a recent support ruling that he had the water turned off to Shannon’s house — cutting off water to his daughters, too.

That’s not a sign of a healthy divorce process. And neither are reports that David was seen in the courthouse, shaking with fury and yelling hateful profanities at Shannon.

Divorce is zero fun.

Shannon Beador: Getting HOW Much Support Each Month from David?

Though Shannon accused David Beador of hiding money during their divorce, it was rumored that he was going to have to pay through the nose in spousal support.

A new, much more official report says that the amount ended up being less than initially reported. Still, it looks like plenty for Shannon and for her daughters.

But even that payment reduction hasn’t prevented David from allegedly retaliating in petty ways that impact his own children.

Things looked bad for the Beadors for a while — from David’s affair a few years ago to his intensely negative response to Shannon’s minor weight gain.

It was only in late 2017 that they actually took the steps to dissolve their union.

Shannon filed for divorce, because she and David had been living separate lives anyway.

But they’ve been married for a long time, and they share three teenage daughters — Sophie, Adeline, and Stella.

Even while the divorce is ongoing, David is legally obligated to make both spousal support payments and child support payments.

So … how much is Shannon getting right now?

Previously, RadarOnline had reported that Shannon Beador’s child and spousal support came in the amount of $ 30,000 per month.

That was $ 12,000 a month in child support, and $ 18,000 per month in spousal support, based upon the time that the girls spend with each parent and upon how much both parents make.

That is a lot of money, and we don’t just mean to those of us who are mere mortals. Even among the wealthiest Americans, paying this amount in support every month is definitely on the high side.

David certainly thought that the amount was high, as he was reportedly furious over it.

But it looks like, as is so often the case during a contentious divorce, the winds have shifted.

People reports that David now has to pay “only” $ 22,500 each month.

That is a tremendous amount of money in spousal and child support, but not at the level of $ 30,000.

This is a temporary payment order to ensure that Shannon and her daughters (of whom she has joint physical and legal custody) continue to live their lives until the divorce is finalized.

(It is not uncommon for the primary breadwinner in an acrimonious divorce to attempt to financially starve their soon-to-be-ex so that they cannot afford to hire a good attorney and may agree to any settlement just to receive regular payments)

David was reportedly spewing profanities at Shannon after court, which is … not a great look.

Shaking with anger, he reportedly declared that the ruling would bankrupt his business.

If you believe Shannon’s claim that he’s hiding money in order to lower the amount that he’s required to pay, then you might guess that this is all smoke and mirrors.

We mentioned earlier that he had seemed determined to retaliate.

When the court ruled that Shannon would be responsible for all of her expenses from that point forward, David reportedly shut off the water at her home.

Which, yes, means that he (allegedly) shut off the water at the house where his daughters are living. Which is just gross.

He has not commented on this allegation.

Shannon, however, refuses to openly condemn him.

“As David and I continue our divorce proceedings,” she say. “I’m doing everything I can to move things efficiently along so that our three children are not subjected to unnecessary stress during an already difficult time.”

Shannon continues, choosing her words very carefully in a way that won’t be turned against her in court. Smart woman.

“I want to be as fair as possible. I remain focused on a clean resolution and have no interest in engaging in a war of words.”

Some might ask why David would be so furious over paying for his daughters, or how anyone could be so petty as to (allegedly!) turn off the water at the home where his own children live.

To add to that, we’ve heard that David believes that Shannon is keeping his kids from him by badmouthing him.

Insiders, however, say that his children know that he cheated on their mother and have witnessed his behavior over the past couple of years, and that any resentments that they have towards their father is of his own making.

Is this kind of spiteful move over a water bill his idea of winning over his daughters? It’s hard to believe that he’s written them off as “enemies.”

We just don’t know.

Shannon Beador: How Many Times Did David Cheat on Her?

To no one’s surprise, the briefly amicable divorce between Shannon and David Beador is turning very, very ugly.

David has been trying to push the narrative that starring on The Real Housewives of Orange County made Shannon an alcoholic, so he should get more time with them.

Shannon is hitting back — and David’s getting accused of having multiple affairs.

beadors

This is one nasty divorce.

David decided to accuse Shannon of drinking too much, and even went so far as to allege that she’s not encouraging the couple’s three daughters, Adeline, Sophie, and Stella to spend time with him.

(That second part might be a divorce tactic … but some wonder if that’s also what David tells himself to explain why his daughters may be unhappy with him)

RadarOnline report that Shannon’s friends are eager to expose David Beador’s bad behavior — because they’re incensed about his unkind words.

“Shannon’s friends and family are so angry about all of this. She’s a great mom!”

And they have specific ammunition in mind when it comes to firing back.

The source continues:

“Plus, everyone knows that David cheated on Shannon with more women than just one.”

Famously, David had a lengthy affair with a family friend a few years ago.

“They are determined to prove more affairs because his credibility will, once again, be shot.”

They say that David can’t keep his secrets buried forever.

“Orange County isn’t the kind of place where things go unnoticed, nor is it a place where people can keep secrets!”

Well, plenty of people might keep secrets living anywhere, but that becomes harder when you’re in the spotlight — and the husband of a Real Housewife is certainly in the spotlight.

The couple returned to court Friday to continue to argue over spousal support.

As you may recall, Shannon accused David of hiding money during their divorce — a very common tactic.

But while we’re sure that the conflict between these two will continue as this divorce grows more contentious, they were ordered to sit down for a settlement conference beforehand.

No one’s holding their breath for that to resolve everything, however.

In the mean time, David is facing more consequences for his accusations against Shannon’s alleged drinking than just angering Shannon’s friends.

RadarOnline also reports that Shannon Beador’s daughters are standing by their mother.

“The girls are honestly old enough to make up their own minds and them wanting to be with their mom is a direct result of how their father treated their mother.”

Sophie is 16, while twins Stella and Adeline are each 12.

As we all heard, David stopped loving Shannon when she gained weight, and this led to the two of them leading separate lives.

Difficult to imagine for anyone who married their spouse out of love instead of for their body.

Also, apparently the girls still haven’t forgiven David for cheating on their mother.

“For years they had to witness their fighting, and they were there for the entire time that their father cheated on their mom, as well as the aftermath it caused. They vowed to never let a man treat them that way.”

The source continues, praising Shannon’s children.

“That being said, those girls are stronger than they have ever been and are going to continue to support their mom because of what they are going through.”

David, in the mean time, appears to be complaining in legal documents because Shannon isn’t forcing their daughters to spend time with him.

It doesn’t sound like his daughters loved the way that he treated their mom during the marriage.

It’s hard to imagine that they’re loving how he’s treating her during the divorce.

David Beador: Shannon Drinks Too Much, Keeps Me From My Kids

We didn’t think it was possible…

… but things have turned even uglier between Shannon Beador and David Beador.

According to explosive legal documents, the estranged husband of this Real Housewives of Orange County cast member isn’t just sitting back and letting the reality star say mean things about him.

David is fighting back.

First, a refresher on the status of this formerly happy couple:

Shannon announced in October that she was filing for divorce from her husband of 17 years, not even pretending at the time that the split was amicable.

“It’s heartbreaking for me and my daughters that this is the road that had to be taken but it’s the only way,” the Bravo personality told the world at the time, adding:

“I felt alone in my marriage. You can do what you can to keep your family together, but you have to have willing parties.

“You need two people to make a marriage work, and that just wasn’t happening in our relationship.”

This statement, and this divorce decision, came after Shannon revealed to Real Housewives viewers on Season 10 that David had been unfaithful.

About six weeks after she confirmed her break-up, Shannon filed new legal documents that sought full legal custody of her three daughters and which aimed to “take [David] for everything he’s got.”

It was contentious then.

And it’s only grown more contentious since, according to Radar Online.

The celebrity gossip site has obtained paper submitted to Orange County Superior Court in which David demands fifty percent custody of 15-year old Sophie and 12-year old Twins Stella and Adeline.

These papers were filed on March 9 and they also accuse Shannon of basically turning the kids against their father.

Writes David in his documents:

“Since separation, the children, on several occasions have refused to talk or see me.

“This behavior has been tolerated in Shannon’s home and is not in the best interests of the children…

“Shannon is not fostering or encouraging a healthy father child relationship.”

From here, David accuses The Real Housewives of Orange County itself of providing Shannon with a dangerous lifestyle, specifically when it comes to alcohol.

Reads his latest filing:

“Shannon’s employment encourages excess drinking and extended travel to which Shannon has chosen not to inform me and make accommodations for the kids to stay with me while she is away.”

This is a new and interesting one.

We’ve never seen a Real Housewives cast member taken to task by a significant other over what she’s asked to do in order to keep her series entertaining.

Then there’s the issue of her salary, which dwarfs what David takes home for his vocation.

David alleges that Shannon earns up to $ 600,000 per year, although she previously stated she earned just over $ 400,000.

This is the sort of thing that will come out once pay stubs and other documents are demanded in court.

We can’t say for certain where things will go between Shannon and David, the latter of whom has a young girlfriend.

But we can say the gloves haven’t just come off in this divorce. They’ve been tossed into the incinerator.

David Beador: I Have a Young, Hot Girlfriend Now!

Just because Shannon Beador is divorcing David and plans to take everything doesn’t mean that David’s life is over. Much to Shannon’s chagrin.

In fact, it looks like David has found a new lady love.

And these two don’t seem to care anymore who knows.

We know that David Beador more or less looks the same in every photo, but that is definitely not Shannon Beador by his side.

This woman, who RadarOnline reports is named Lesley Cook, is a 34-year-old mother of two very young children.

Lesley is a DIY blogger and a native of Orange County and has been posting about how much she loves Laguna (in between photos of her two precious children, of course).

She’s also been spotted at The Montage, which was a favored restaurant for David and Shannon during their marriage.

RadarOnline reports that multiple sources confirm that Lesley and David are indeed dating. It would appear that this relationship started some time during December.

Now, David and Lesley haven’t been posting photos of themselves locking lips, but we have more than just reports to point to these two being in a relationship.

In the captions of the photo of the two of them, which was posted on January 14th, Lesley simply wrote:

“Bumped into this guy …”

Lesley said that the photo was at 2am in Las Vegas when speaking to her aunt.

It was only when someone called David hot and Lesley “lucky” that David chimed in, insisting that he is the lucky one.

Lesley Cook and David Beador "lucky" comments

That’s not the only instance.

Honestly, we don’t know if it was an inside joke or if someone pranked David Beador by telling him that using the “#discreet” hashtag would somehow make his comments invisible to everyone but the recipient.

(He and Lesley have both used “#discrete” which is also a word but not with their intended meaning)

Because he’s used that hashtag multiple times in comments and … absolutely everyone can see them.

Lesley Cook shared on Instagram that she really wore herself out exercising, and David revealed in the captions that he had been helping her along.

Lesley Cook and David Beador comments

David also added another comment, teasing:

“Was this before or after we ‘bumped’ into one another? Looks like an amazing fun night! I don’t remember meeting your date though, strangely enough … maybe he was holding your shoes in back as you said your feet hurt.” 

That’s the way that people talk when they want the whole world to know that they’re dating an attractive younger woman but promised, like, an attorney or maybe their children that they’d keep things on the down-low for a while.

There have been others photos — not showing David but showing that she’s been working out, with David implying in the comments that he was there with her.

We suppose that, since David Beador stopped loving Shannon when she got “fat,” David’s pretty focused on making sure that his new lady love is in good shape.

David was reportedly seeing multiple women pretty much as things ended with Shannon Beador, but it looks like he and Lesley have been pretty exclusive since before Christmas.

Reportedly, Shannon Beador knows and, um, isn’t super thrilled that her ex has immediately moved on with a younger woman.

This may shed some light on Shannon Beador’s desire to boot David off of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Maybe she could swallow her pride enough to film necessary conflict scenes for her divorce storyline. But imagine if Lesley becomes a Real Housewife?

No offense to Lesley, who has surely done nothing wrong, but that might be too much to bear for poor Shannon.

Shannon Beador: I Want David Beador OFF The Real Housewives of Orange County!

It’s been about two months since Shannon Beador filed for divorce on December 1st.

Since then, things have gone from somewhat amicable to no-holds-barred hostilities between Shannon and David Beador.

Now, Shannon is taking things a step further — and reportedly trying to get David fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County.

A little before Halloween, Shannon and David Beador decided to split after 17 years.

It had been reported that the two of them were basically living separate lives in the same household anyway, so the separation was not a huge surprise.

Still, the two of them had resolved to maintain some semblance of normality for the sake of their daughters.

For starters, even though David stopped loving Shannon when she became “fat,” they had resolved to keep things friendly.

They even scheduled regular weekend activities for the whole family.

But it’s really hard to go from loving your partner in life to feeling neutral-yet-friendly towards them. It is so much easier to hate them.

Things no longer appear to be amicable between the exes.

For starters, Shannon Beador apparently does not make the kind of money that David does, so she’s wanting a good deal when it comes to division of property and when it comes to alimony.

That’s pretty standard for divorce, but so are contentious debates about money.

In fact, it’s been reported that Shannon Beador accuses David of hiding money. If true, that sort of sneaky move to make it appear that he has less than he does could mean that a court might not have him pay Shannon her fair share.

And now it sounds like Shannon can’t even stand the sight of David.

RadarOnline reports that Shannon Beador wants David fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County.

She’s getting divorced, so that’s a huge thing that they’d need to cover, but Shannon believes that there’s enough unused footage of David from previous seasons.

“Shannon wants producers to use old footage to tell her story next season.”

That’s a hefty demand, especially from someone who’s reportedly negotiating more money from the show in order to spill secrets for the cameras.

“At this moment, she doesn’t want anything to do with him and filming with him would make this whole process so much harder on her.”

So this sounds less like a calculated financial sabotage and more like a lack of desire to show up to work with a man she can’t stand to be around.

“It is already really hard on her and the kids and there is just no reason to bring him on-camera if they already have what they need.”

For Shannon, this is a deep and emotional pain. They only split a few months ago and it will take a lot of time for these fresh wounds to heal.

“She is still hurting inside a lot.”

Imagine getting a divorce but showing up to work and your spouse is there and the two of you are supposed to spend a lot of time together. That’s what she’s facing.

“Shannon is in a better place than she was but she still does not want to have to face him, on-camera or in real life, because it is very hard.”

Shannon’s desire to go without David is very understandable.

And obviously, if one of them is to leave the show, we can’t imagine why it would be the Housewife. Not all of the Real Housewives are actually wives, but Shannon still makes more sense than David.

But we can’t help but wonder if this effort could come back to bite her.

Were he so inclined, couldn’t David try to sue her for “ruining his reality career” as Blac Chyna has been attempting with the Kardashians?

This is a fight over money, ultimately, and there’s no reason to believe that David will just go quietly.

Shannon Beador: David is Hiding His Wealth! I Deserve This!

After 17 years, Shannon Beador and David are divorcing.

At first, it seemed that the divorce for this Real Housewives of Orange County couple would remain amicable, for the sake of their three daughters. But that’s changed, and now Shannon aims to take everything from David. Get it, girl.

Now, a report about the couple’s court battle shows that she’s making good on her vow to go after his finances.

At the beginning of October of last year, we reported that Shannon Beador was ready to leave David. A few weeks leader, the two made their split official.

Two years after David confessed to cheating on her with a married friend, their marriage was on thin ice.

It seemed that they were basically living in the same house as neighbors, not partners. It sounded like some serious alienation.

Though David is the known cheater, it seems that problems really arose because David stopped loving Shannon when she gained weight.

That is heartbreaking, and now the couple is divorcing.

RadarOnline reports that Shannon is fighting David in court for money. Their source says:

“David is trying to be a cheapskate and Shannon isn’t having any of it.”

And at the divorce hearing scheduled for January 25th, she’s going to seek more cash.

“She demanded that he submit his current income to the judge because she believes he is grossly underestimating his net worth.”

That sounds like a very, very standard divorce.

“She knows that David has more money than he is claiming to have and isn’t going to let him get away easy.”

After the divorce announcement, the couple spent a few weeks playing nice for the sake of their children.

But even that polite facade has fallen apart.

And, from court filings, it looks like Shannon believes that David is trying to cling to every last penny that he owns.

“David has far greater access to funds to pay attorney fees, and the amount of the award for which request is made is modest relative to David’s income.”

If that’s all true, David will probably end up paying Shannon more than he’d like.

But Shannon isn’t just seeking payments for herself, folks.

“Shannon believes that David should pay for all three of their daughters’ college tuition in full.”

Well, hopefully he won’t fight Shannon on that issue.

He’s their father, and a college education is often a necessity, not a luxury.

It’s not his daughters’ “fault” that they were born, so their parents owe them the best start at life that they can provide.

And it sounds like David can provide quite a lot.

As we mentioned, this sort of financial wrangling is typical of divorce.

It’s so typical, in fact, that we’d almost be shocked if this weren’t happening.

The Beadors are rich, but not so rich that they’d each prefer to ignore a few million in order to avoid conflict. That’s for Hollywood A-listers, if anyone.

But the Beadors also aren’t so poor that their means are insignificant. So there’s a lot for them to contest.

More significantly, though, they are both dealing with complex emotions, including anger and grief. Love can turn to hate in an instant, and a lot of divorce battles have more to do with spite than anything else.

Shannon Beador: I’m Divorcing David and Taking EVERYTHING!

Star of The Real Housewives of Orange County Shannon Beador and her husband David have split, separating after 17 years together.

We’ve described what was an amicable separation, in which the couple was putting their children first. That was so admirable.

In the space of just one month, however, that arrangement has devolved into a very contentious divorce.

Shannon Beador has been having a rough go of it in recent years.

Back in 2015, David Beador cheated on Shannon. That’s not speculation — they’ve both spoken about it. David admitted to it.

(As we say every time, folks, if you don’t want to live monogamously, either don’t enter a committed relationship or enter a relationship with one or more people who don’t demand monogamy. Otherwise, you’re just being a jerk)

But what should have been the low point that led to an end to their problems wasn’t the end of their marriage’s troubles.

The Real Housewives of Orange County costar Vicki Gunvalson spread nasty rumors about Shannon Beador’s marriage.

Shannon then blamed Vicki for her weight gain, as she responded to the situation by stress-eating.

(Yes, Shannon later apologized, admitting that Vicki was not in fact some sort of witch who had cursed her to grow a softer tummy)

Other costars’ reactions to Shannon’s weight gain ranged from sympathy to fitness guru Tamra Judge’s fear that Shannon might die.

The biggest reaction to Shannon’s weight wasn’t a costar or her fans, though.

To hear her tell it, David Beador stopped loving Shannon when she got “fat.” He wouldn’t touch her and apparently couldn’t stand to look at her.

But, as we’ve described, Shannon and David have been keeping things amicable since their separation in October.

Though David moved out and began dating other women, the two have continued to to do regular family gatherings for the sake of their children.

Going out to dinner or to sportsball games, they’ve been smiling and making it clear that their children come first.

Some wondered if their separation would continue until their children were all a few years older and could grow accustomed to the idea.

RadarOnline reports that this has now changed.

Apparently, Shannon Beador has filed court documents of “dissolution with child.”

(That, to be clear, means that she wants to dissolve the marriage, not their three children)

Shannon also filed a custody declaration, an income declaration, and an expense declaration.

(RadarOnline‘s sources tell them that Shannon’s seeking full custody, and “generous” spousal support and child support. But that’s usually how divorces go)

She filed these documents last Friday, which just so happened to be the first of December.

As it turns out, that was not a coincidence. …

According to another RadarOnline report, Shannon Beador is done playing nice with David.

Their insider explains why Shannon filed these documents on December first:

“Shannon wanted to give David an early Christmas present, so she waited until December to drop the bomb on him.”

Dang. That sounds intense.

“She’s going after full custody and hopes to take him for everything he’s got.”

Are those war drums that we hear in the distance?

“She has so much support right now from all of her cast members and friends.”

That makes sense.

“They all hated David so much and are just beyond thrilled that she finally got rid of him.”

While we don’t expect for The Real Housewives of Orange County cameras to actually follow their divorce proceedings, we’re sure that it will be a big part of Shannon Beador’s future storyline.

But we don’t imagine that we’ll see David. The series is about housewives, not ex-husbands.

While we don’t know yet who will triumph in the divorce battle, we know who’s losing out when the parents begin a no-holds-barred war:

The couple’s three children.

To be clear, we’re not suggesting that they stay together or stay married for the sake of their kids. That’s a recipe for a toxic home environment and children who blame themselves for the misery of their parents.

But an amicable divorce is good for everyone involved. As satisfying as this upcoming court drama might be for fans and viewers, it’s going to take its toll on the Beador kids.

That said … sometimes, there’s just no choice.
