Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador spent twenty years hanging on to her relationship with David Beador. But after dealing with multiple issues — including his very public affair — the couple decided to finally call it quits last fall. Now, they are going through a nasty divorce, but Shannon has lost the weight she gained at the end of her marriage and is skinnier than she has been in years. As she prepares for another court battle with her ex, Shannon is looking better than ever and ready for David to be out of her life.
The 54-year-old reality star recently posted a pic on Instagram that put her one million plus followers into a frenzy. In the photo, the blonde beauty smiles for the camera and shows off her new slim figure in a shirt that is obviously too big, and she wrote in the caption, “Weight going down a little bit. Had to clip the shirt.”
An insider close to Shannon says that the RHOC star doesn’t need her trainer anymore because he taught her so much that she can effectively workout on her own. Shannon has a home gym, and she and her co-star Tamra Judge often workout together. And, according to Radar Online, Shannon’s goal is to have a body like Judge.
Shannon’s next court date in her divorce case with David is October 15th, and she has hopes of finalizing her feud with David over spousal support. Last March, the judge in their case ordered David to temporarily pay Shannon $22,500 a month in spousal and child support, and David did not like that ruling. However, Shannon originally had been awarded $30,000 a month but she asked for a reduction because she thought that was too much.
After gaining 40 pounds during the last year of her marriage, Shannon has lost it all — plus a little extra — just in time for her court date.
“She wants to look like a knockout when she sees him [David] again,” says the source.
In a recent episode of RHOC, Shannon sprained her ankle while getting ready for a blind date, and she revealed that she recently sprained it again after going for a walk. Shannon posted a pic of her foot in a boot and revealed in the caption that this time she sprained her right ankle.
But just because she has one foot currently out of commission, that doesn’t mean she has put her workouts on hold. Shannon can’t go for walks or runs, but she can use an exercise bike that allows her to rest one leg. She posted a fun pic with Judge recently that showed they had matching rides. The friends also matched their outfits, both wearing black tops and jeans.
