Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador is currently going through a divorce from her husband, David Beador, and she isn’t afraid to share secrets with fans. However, she won’t do it unless Bravo promises her that David won’t appear on the show anymore. Will Shannon convince producers to do things her way?
Radar Online is reporting that Beador is in negotiations with the network to get a huge bonus for airing the dirty laundry about her divorce, but her one condition is that they fire David. Instead of him appearing in any future episodes, she wants producers to use old footage while she tells her story next season.
“At this moment, she doesn’t want anything to do with him and filming with him would make this whole process so much harder on her,” reveals an insider.
Shannon believes that putting David on-camera is too difficult for her and her three children, so if they already have the footage they need, there is no reason to film him again.
The former couple was supposed to appear in court last week to discuss her request for spousal and child support for their three daughters – Sophie 16, Stella, 13, and Adeline, 13 – but Shannon phoned in a request to push the meeting back a month because she is still hurting inside.

Even though she is in a better place than she was at the beginning of the split, it’s still very difficult for her to face David on camera or in real life.
The 54-year-old is requesting primary physical custody of her daughters along with spousal support, but she is also asking for joint legal custody.
Shannon and David got married on September 16, 2000, and they renewed their vows back in 2016 in an elaborate ceremony in front of the Bravo cameras. But, after several attempts to fix their broken marriage after David’s affair, they decided to finally call it quits last September.
Shannon filed for divorce in December, and the two are set to return to court in March to discuss her requests for custody and support.
In the meantime, Shannon is experiencing an occupational hazard of being a mom and has been dealing with a nasty case of the flu. After Adeline caught the bug – which is on track for its worst season in ten years – Shannon caught it herself, and she posted a pic on Instagram to let her followers know how she is feeling.
She captioned the photo with the hashtags #itsnasty and #cantgetoutofbed, and she also revealed her disappointment in not being able to go on a trip to Las Vegas with her friends Jeff Lewis and Jenni Poulos.
Shannon Beador’s divorce drama will surely be a prominent storyline on the next season of RHOC, which will premiere in 2018.
