Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador recently suffered through a nasty divorce with her cheating ex-husband, David, after their 17-year marriage, but it looks like she is finally getting her fairytale ending. Beador’s new boyfriend Alex treats her like a princess, and the 54-year-old reality star is in love.
But, according to Radar Online, Beador never thought she would fall in love again, but she did. And, fans shouldn’t worry because her new man isn’t after her money or her fame.
“Alex doesn’t need Shannon’s money because he has plenty of his own. He buys her things from the heart and would literally do anything to make her smile. Unlike her ex, Alex tells her how beautiful she is and how lucky he is to have her. She feels the same way,” reveals an insider.
Fans watched last season as David and Shannon’s marriage fell apart after he admitted to having an affair, which ended up contributing to her 40-pound weight gain. Then, he allegedly started sending her body-shaming texts.
So now, it appears that she has learned her lesson and will be keeping her new relationship off-camera – for now.
Insiders say Alex doesn’t have a desire to be on Real Housewives of Orange County and isn’t interested in the reality star lifestyle. However, just because fans won’t get to see him, it doesn’t mean they won’t get to hear Shannon gush about him.
Apparently, things are getting serious, and Alex is an “absolute sweetheart” who is treating Shannon like she deserves. Plus, her daughters think he is great, and that’s what really matters.
Shannon debuted her and Alex’s new relationship on her Instagram page earlier this month when she posted pictures of the two attending a Poison concert with some friends. But, at the time, she didn’t reveal who the mystery man was.
In addition to her new romance, Shannon is also focused on her three girls – Sophie, Stella, and Adeline –, her fitness goals, and her new QVC prepared food line, Real for Real Cuisine. Insiders say that the reality star “looks amazing,” and she is in a good place.
Shannon Beador will be returning to Bravo for season 13 of the Real Housewives of Orange County later this summer along with Tamra Judge, Kelly Dodd, and Vicki Gunvalson. But, there will also be two new housewives since Meghan King Edmonds, Peggy Sulahian, and Lydia McLaughlin will not be coming back.
