Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador may be in the middle of a nasty divorce, and her soon-to-be ex-husband may have moved on to a new relationship, but she isn’t letting any of it get her down. After David Beador, 53, and his new girlfriend Lesley Cook, 34, shared pictures of themselves enjoying the slopes in Utah, Shannon decided to take her daughters on a lavish vacation to Mexico, and she is posting photos to let her ex know what he is missing.
Shannon appeared relaxed as she posed for pics with her daughters Sophie, 16, Stella, 13, and Adeline, 13, at a hidden beach villa.
“Shannon’s girls have all really been bothered by the fact that their dad’s new girlfriend is flaunting their relationship on her social media. It’s just so disrespectful and hurtful,” reveals Radar source.
The girls reportedly are checking Cook’s social media regularly, and find it disgusting that she is rubbing it in their faces that she is in a new relationship with their dad.
Luckily, after Cook posted a photo on Instagram of her and David enjoying a romantic ski vacation, she changed her profile from public to private.
The insider explains that the last few months have been tough for the Beador girls, and Shannon wanted to do something that would bring them closer together. The trip was also a way of her saying thanks to her daughters for their love and support.
Just after the news broke that David was in a rebound romance with Cook, Shannon posted a picture of her and her daughter’s passports.
Now that Cook is dating a reality star, she is getting the same scrutiny that her boyfriend has endured over the years. Different media outlets are reporting that she has a dark past that includes a restraining order she filed a couple of years ago against her baby daddy’s new girlfriend.
In her claim, Cook wrote that she stopped by the home of the man that she shares two kids with, and she got into a physical altercation with Christina, the new woman. She alleged that Christina “grabbed” and “manhandled” her and as a result, she had bruises on her hands and scrapes and cuts up and down her arms and neck.
But a month after her filing, the Superior Court of California dismissed her case and denied her request after she failed to appear in court.
As far as the next season of Real Housewives of Orange County goes, Shannon will be returning once again, but there are no plans for David and his new girlfriend to make an appearance.
New episodes of RHOC – which are sure to feature Shannon Beador’s divorce drama prominently – will air later this year on Bravo.
