It looks like Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador is finally ready to let go and put the drama of her divorce from ex-husband David Beador behind her. The blonde beauty is now on “amicable terms” with her ex, and that could be – in part – attributed to the fact that she is now in a hot romance with a new boyfriend.
“They are putting their children first and are working on establishing a new set of boundaries that will help the both of them in the long run,” an insider said. “David wanted to be left out of the spotlight and he got just that. He is getting to see his daughters more and more and it’s been great for their family.”
The 54-year-old is settling into her new life in Newport Beach, California, and she is keeping herself busy. Sources say it has helped her take her mind off of her messy divorce, and now she has found a man who treats her like she deserves. Shannon is happy, and her boyfriend (Alex) is an “absolute sweetheart.”
Radar Online is reporting that Shannon has already introduced Alex to her three girls, and they definitely approve of the relationship. Insiders also claim that Shannon is focusing on her children, her fitness goals, and her new QVC line. And, she looks amazing and is in a good place.
Shannon and David’s 17-year-marriage dissolved in front of viewers during recent seasons of Real Housewives of Orange County. He admitted to having an affair during the marriage, and that contributed to her 40-pound weight gain. Then David – who is a health nut – allegedly made things worse by sending Shannon body-shaming texts.
But the mom-of-three has put it all behind her and is enjoying life with her new man. Shannon even posted a photo this past weekend of her and Alex attending a Poison concert.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County are coming to Bravo this summer, and the network just released the first promo pic for season thirteen. Shannon returns with co-stars Kelly Dodd, Tamra Judge, and Vicki Gunvalson.
The pic did not feature the new cast members of the show, who Bravo has yet to officially reveal. Meghan King Edmonds, Peggy Sulahian, and Lydia McLaughlin all exited RHOC after season twelve.
The four returning ladies looked as fabulous as ever in the promo, with BFFs Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge rocking metallic dresses, while Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd opted for sleek, sophisticated looks.
