Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador is currently going through a nasty divorce, but that isn’t keeping her estranged husband, David, from moving on to a new relationship. David is dating Lesley Cook, and the couple is currently vacationing in Greece. Could some recent suspicious pics from the trip show hints that the couple is engaged?
David and his girlfriend are nearing their one-year anniversary, and she has been posting photos on her Instagram page and stories of their European getaway. However, in some of the images, Cook appears to be purposefully hiding her hand. We never see both of her hands in any of the pics, and some of the images appear to be flipped to keep fans from asking questions about her ring finger.

David Beador can’t seem to take responsibility for his divorce and ruined family. — David Beador recently revealed that he felt bad for his kids to relive divorce on the RHOC. David Beador has distanced himself from the #RHOC show because Shannon continued to film the show. David isn’t happy about the way that he is being portrayed on the show, as he knows that Shannon is sharing her honest and true feelings about their divorce. Beador claimed that David had moved on from her within a few months, and she was truly heartbroken. — It didn’t help that @TamraJudge told Shannon that David Beador had started dating the other woman while they were still married, talking on Instagram. But David claims that he wants to move on from Shannon, as he has asked her to stop using the Beador last name. She claims she has earned the name and has no plans of dropping the name. — However, fans are coming to Shannon’s defense, revealing that he has treated her horribly. Asking for the name change so Shannon didn’t use Beador was no small thing. He seems to forget that he cheated on her, he ruined the family, and he was lucky to even be given a shot to save the marriage. While he’s slamming Shannon, fans want David to know that everything is his fault. — David’s chubby, Polish girlfriend Lesley has posted some interesting accusations on her IG this evening. Who is she referring to? See screen shots. Looks like she can’t step away from the cast of RHOC even if David states he is trying to. — — What do you think of David Beador slamming Shannon for talking about the divorce on television, when it’s all his fault for cheating on her? What do you think about Lesley continuing to post her “poor me, I’m the victim” persona on social media? Maybe she should shut up and stop posting her feelings online. Besides, who the f cares about her anyway? She chose to take up with a married man who’s old enough to be her father. Have you noticed how old David is looking? Maybe he needs her to care for him as he heads into old age? The tattoo hearts on the birdie fingers are too much!! — — Share your thoughts!! We want to know. — — @lovinglifeinnewport #rhoc13? #davidbeador #shannonbeador
Cook also shared some pics of the couple touring Athens, and in one of them, it looks like David is holding her hand and covering a possible engagement ring.
The couple has visited a number of popular historical spots in Greece since arriving last week, including the sacred ruins of the Parthenon. And, they also enjoyed a nighttime view of the temple from the Hotel Grande Bretagne.
“Beautiful night with my love! This view is surreal!” Cook wrote in the caption.
The two recently moved in together, but have shut down rumors that Cook is pregnant.
As for Shannon, she is currently dating businessman Scot Matteson and is busy with her new QVC food line Real for Real Cuisine.
If David and Cook are trying to cover up an engagement, it could be because of the nasty divorce that he and Shannon are currently going through. Shannon filed for divorce last December after 17 years of marriage. During their nearly two-decade relationship, David did cheat on Shannon, and the aftermath of his infidelity played out on RHOC.

Looks like David Beador has rekindled the flame with pop-up doll, Lesley Cook. It’s reported that David broke off with this meddling piece of work in April but now they’ve been spotted on a mini vacay in Seattle after she posted these pics on her social media. — It’s also reported that they plan to marry and have a child together after David and @shannonbeador are officially divorced. We know that Lesley is an unmarried mother of two from a prior relationship. — Is Shannon better off?? Do we care? — — #davidbeador #rhoc #rhocseason13 #shannonbeador #rhwwrh @lovinglifeinnewport #rhoc13?
Shannon ended up gaining about 40 pounds towards the end of the marriage, and that also caused problems for the couple. Shannon has said that David Beador did not deal well with her weight gain, and things continued to get worse before they finally decided to call it quits.
During this season of RHOC, Shannon has had problems dealing with her divorce. During a cast trip to Jamaica, the women ganged up on Shannon and called her out for her behavior. Some of her co-stars thought that Shannon Beador should start taking prescribed medication instead of self-medicating with alcohol.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County air Monday nights on Bravo.
