Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador has a new body and a new man. According to a new report, the 54-year-old reality star has not only hit her goal weight, but she is also dating Rick Stanley, the Senior VP of Advertising Sales at Comcast Spotlight, the parent company of Bravo.
Stanley – a 55-year-old divorced father of two who lives in Denver, Colorado – met Beador last year not long after his marriage ended.
“Shannon and Rick have been dating for a few months. They bonded over the fact that they were both divorced for six months when they met,” an insider told Radar Online.

What an incredible night with @comcast_spotlight for the #blacktietailgate at the Philadelphia Auto Show benefitting Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia ! ❤️ Was so much fun spending time with #RHOC fans! 🥳🎉 And a special thank you to Amber @neimanmarcus King of Prussia for finding my dress last minute! 😘
The new couple has kept their relationship out of the public eye, but they did go to a basketball game in Denver last December, and they also recently attended a black-tie charity event together in Philadelphia.
Beador did post a pic from the event which benefited the Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia, but Stanley was not in the photo.
An insider also claims that Beador and Stanley have visited Lisa Vanderpump’s SUR restaurant in Los Angeles several times, have taken a few trips together, and have also seen each other at different Comcast events.

When Beador shared the news with her RHOC castmates Kelly Dodd, Vicki Gunvalson, and Tamra Judge, the insider says that they found the relationship to be a bit scandalous because Beador is dating a network exec.
However, they do support her and are urging Beador to go public with the relationship so she can bring him on the show next season. But, Stanley “has no desire to be on camera,” says the insider.
As for Beador’s new body, she recently revealed that she had hit her goal weight by losing 40 pounds.
During a segment that she filmed for QVC, Beador did give some of the credit to her Real for Real Cuisine food line. She also got moving and hit the gym after splitting from her ex-husband David Beador in late 2017.
Beador’s figure is noticeably slimmer in her recent pics, and fans are loving the transformation.
“Shannon you look so good. I remember seeing you so upset about your body on the show and look at you now,” one fan wrote.
Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Tamra Judge, Vicki Gunvalson, and the rest of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast will return for Season 14 later this year on Bravo.
