The divorce between Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador and her husband of 19 years, David, is about to get even uglier after reports surfaced that the 53-year-old has already moved on with a new 34-year-old girlfriend. So how is Beador dealing with being replaced so easily?
The reality star is “extremely hurt,” about her ex’s rebound with Leslie Cook, a successful DIY blogger, and mother of two. Beador has known about Cook for a couple of months, and she has found the news to be devastating.
On top of that, she sees that Cook is putting a smile on David’s face, and that is something that she couldn’t do herself for a long time.
This is not a forum to talk about RHOC. With all the hate in the world and violence… let’s inspire one another to live happy & healthy lives. We only get this one chance. Everyone deserve to be happy & find peace….

The new couple has not yet gone public with their romance, but they haven’t been shy about things on Instagram. Cook posted a picture of the two of them with their arms around each other in Las Vegas, and they have been flirting in the comments section.
They have allegedly been secretly seeing each other for two months, and Shannon knows she can’t even try to compete with the gorgeous blonde who is twenty years younger.
Last week, Shannon announced that she would be returning to RHOC for season 13, and she apparently doesn’t want her ex to have anything to do with the show. Sources claim that Shannon has doubled down with producers to try to make sure that they will not put David on camera in the future and will not offer him any more money.
So now the question is, will producers include David’s romance with Cook next season?
Shannon has been attempting to negotiate a massive bonus to reveal all the secrets of her nasty divorce next season, but will the network decide to go with just her side of the story?
If it were up to Shannon, she would prefer that producers just use old footage of David when necessary, instead of shooting anything new.
She doesn’t want anything to do with her ex, and she feels filming with him would make things much more difficult.

The former couple was set to appear in court last month to discuss matters regarding her request for spousal and child support. However, Shannon phoned in a request to move the meeting to next month because she is still hurting inside and not ready to see him face to face.
Shannon and David announced their separation in October, and she officially filed for divorce on December 1st.
Catch all the drama when Shannon Beador returns for new episodes of the Real Housewives of Orange County later this year.
