Season 13 of the Real Housewives of Orange County will be all about revenge for star Shannon Beador. Her marriage to her cheating ex-husband, David, is in her rearview mirror, and the new trailer for the upcoming season shows Beador on her first date post-divorce.
The teaser does not show Beador with her new boyfriend, Alex. But Radar Online is reporting that fans will get to witness Beador’s “post-divorce revenge plan, which includes rebounds.”
“Shannon really wants to let her fans in on a little bit of her dating life because they helped her remain strong through the hell that David put her through,” reveals an insider.
The source also says that Beador wants her fans to see she has moved on, and the best way to make that happen is to see the dates she went on before she met Alex.
But, when it comes to her current relationship, Beador is still keeping things private and being very careful about sharing details with fans. The insider says the reality star is “on the fence” about putting the relationship out there for the world to see. But, both Beador and Alex are ‘warming up to the idea.’
Beador is concerned about the “housewives curse” that she and many of her cast mates have gone through. And, she doesn’t want to experience that again.
As for her divorce, the Beador’s are still going to court to get things settled, but her recent business success with her QVC prepared meal line Real For Real Cuisine may end up costing her. A recent report claims that David could try to use her recent income to get out of paying the court-ordered spousal support.
Real For Real features healthy, prepared meals with balanced nutrients, and it has made Shannon millions. So, David thinks his spousal support payment should be significantly lower.
An inside source claims that Shannon believes her ex is being unfair and greedy, and she isn’t planning on budging. Currently, he pays $22,500 a month in child and spousal support.
But, it isn’t likely that the court will drop the amount again. David had “a fit in the courtroom” when the original spousal support ruling came down, and Shannon had the total lowered from what the judge thought was fair.

Now, she isn’t worried about the court reducing her payments, according to an insider. She believes they will side with her, especially after David’s bad behavior their last time in court.
However, her new income could make a difference, but it depends on the phrasing of previous rulings. If the judge already factored in her new business venture, then the spousal support won’t likely change.
And, since Shannon Beador already voluntarily asked for a lower payment, David probably doesn’t have much of an argument.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County return to Bravo next month.
