For the past few months, Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador has been going through a messy divorce from ex-husband David, and sources say that she is “so ready” for it to be over and can’t “wait to be rid of him.” David has caused the divorce to drag out after Shannon filed on December 1st, but now it looks like things are close to coming to an end.
Back in March, the former couple clashed in a California courtroom when David strongly opposed Shannon’s custody and spousal support demands. At the time, David represented himself instead of hiring a lawyer. And, after the court awarded her temporary child and spousal support of $22,500 a month – plus joint legal and physical custody of their three daughters – he had a total meltdown.
David claimed that Shannon’s new deal with QVC meant she was earning more than he was and paying her such a large amount each month would “bankrupt” his multi-million dollar company. So, now an accountant has analyzed both Shannon and David’s incomes – per the judge’s order – and the couple will be back in court next week for the presentation of the findings.
According to Radar Online, Shannon and David do not interact at this point.
“Shannon doesn’t care what David does or who he is with,” says an insider. “To her, he is the father of her beautiful daughters, and that is it. She doesn’t interact with him now and never will other than to discuss their girls.”
The 53-year-old reality star has moved on after her 17-year marriage ended, thanks to David’s cheating and his body-shaming after her weight gain. Shannon rebounded with a new boyfriend, but after two months the couple has already called it quits.
Shannon started dating Alex back in May, and insiders said at the time that he was “an absolute sweetheart” and had already met her daughters – Adeline, Stella, and Sophie. But, Shannon wasn’t ready for anything serious, and Alex wanted a commitment.
Sources say that Alex was everything Shannon could have hoped for, but since her marriage ended less than a year ago, she just wants to have fun right now and be single. She also wants to focus on her kids and herself.
But, the relationship did give Shannon validation that she is “still a hot, desired woman.” And it was great for her to be with a man that cared for her and showered her with gifts. Shannon and Alex do remain on good terms, even though things didn’t work out between them.
