Part two of the Season 13 Real Housewives of Orange County reunion aired this past weekend, and host Andy Cohen dropped a huge bombshell – there is a rumor that Shannon Beador’s ex-husband David is expecting a baby with his much-younger girlfriend. Could this new development affect Shannon and David’s custody arrangement for their three daughters?
During the show, Cohen asked Shannon about the rumor that 34-year-old Lesley Cook was pregnant with David’s baby. The 54-year-old responded that there is a rumor out there, but she doesn’t know anything about it.

“The thing that’s a hard pill to swallow is they are living together…They moved to a very affluent community in a six-bedroom home. Her kids live there too,” Shannon said.
She added that she is supposed to give her kids some space, but she wants to know what they are doing. Her divorced co-stars, including Tamra Judge, all understood where Shannon was coming from.
Judge said that because she didn’t give her daughter space when she divorced Simon Barney, it pushed her teen away. However, she doesn’t think that she and her daughter, Sidney, have passed the point of no return, and Judge believes that they will be back together in time.
She also revealed that she texts her daughter once a month to tell her that she loves her, and her door is always open. But Sidney is out of state in college, and for her, the situation is “out of sight, out of mind.” Judge added that her daughter never responds to her texts.
As for Shannon, Radar Online confirms that there have been a ton of whispers in the Housewives inner circle about Cook being pregnant. To add fuel to the fire, David’s girlfriend has gone dark on social media after being extremely active on Instagram.
Shannon started to cry when she explained that she had allowed her three daughters to get close to David and his new girlfriend. And now, their custody arrangement may have to change. She said that she has asked her daughters about David’s living situation, and that got back to her ex. This created a mess, and Shannon now feels like she has to walk on eggshells around her kids.
Judge, who went through her own messy divorce, advised Shannon Beador to avoid checking in with her kids because at their age they don’t want that. Instead, they want a little bit of space.
Part three of the Season 13 Real Housewives of Orange County reunion will air Sunday night on Bravo.
