Season 13 of the Real Housewives of Orange County has finally come to an end, but we still aren’t free of the Shannon Beador divorce drama. The 54-year-old reality star has not been shy when it comes to trashing her ex-husband, David Beador, on the popular Bravo show, and his new girlfriend is tired of it.
Not long after Shannon and David split in late 2017, he started dating 34-year-old Lesley Cook, and Shannon has had trouble dealing with her cheating ex moving on so quickly. Shannon’s post-divorce struggles have been difficult for fans to watch. In one breath she will make claims that David called her names like “crazy” and “alcoholic” while they were married. Then, in the next, she will get upset that he started a new relationship so soon after they split.

One thing is for sure, Cook has had enough of Shannon trash-talking David on national television, and she recently let everyone know her opinion with a nasty Instagram post.
“I hate to go here, but I am,” wrote Cook. “My kids and I have been shown nothing but love from David for almost a year. The man is crazy kind and loving! He works his a** off and does everything he can to provide and take care of EVERYONE in his family. He doesn’t deserve to be bashed on national TV over and over again.”

In the post, Cook also added an image that read, “There are two sides to every story.” And, she wrote that everyone deserves peace and happiness during this very short life, and it is time to put egos aside and move forward. Cook added that she could never imagine bashing her kids’ father even though she and her ex have their differences.
David wasted no time moving on to a younger blonde after he and Shannon split. According to Radar Online, last month David moved Cook and her two small children into his six-bedroom Orange County mansion. And just a few days ago Cook shot down rumors that she was pregnant with David’s baby.
The couple has also posted pics of their travels around the globe, and they have even spent time with the three daughters he shares with Shannon Beador.

Cook’s supporters flooded her Instagram comments with messages of support, and she continued to defend David by writing that she couldn’t find anything bad to say about David after a year of dating.
Of course, just about every RHOC fan finds that hard to believe and aren’t ready to grant David Beador sainthood just yet.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County will return to Bravo in 2019.
