Shannon Beador may have found herself an honest man. The Real Housewives of Orange County star’s new boyfriend, Rick Stanley, reportedly treats her “like a goddess” — which is a huge upgrade from her cheating ex-husband, David Beador.
“Shannon has been keeping him a secret for a little while now,” an insider explained. “He treats her like the goddess she is and her friends are so happy for her. She really deserves this.”

According to Radar Online, Stanley is the vice president of a company called Comcast Spotlight, which owns Bravo. Stanley works out of Denver, Colorado and shares two children from a previous relationship. Beador has not said much about her new romance, but sources claim they have not been shy about displaying their affection in public.
Last weekend, the two allegedly flew to Philadelphia to attend a charity event for a children’s hospital in the area. Beador, who looked stunning on the red carpet, did not pose with her new boyfriend, though sources claim he was on hand to watch the festivities.
Beador’s relationship with Stanley started sometime this past fall. In October, the two attended a dinner at Lisa Vanderpump’s SUR establishment in Los Angeles. The outing confirmed that Beador was seeing someone new, though little was known about Stanley at the time.
The only downside to Beador’s new romance is that she still has not finalized her divorce from David. The two are supposed to appear before a judge in Orange County this week to discuss child custody issues and support, which David has refused to pay.
The former couple share three children together — Sophie, Stella and Adeline — and were married for 17 years before calling it quits.

Beador has not commented on the rumors surrounding her new boyfriend, but given the timing of things, there is a good chance that Stanley makes it on the upcoming season in some capacity.
Whatever happens, we can only hope that Shannon Beador’s problems with David get resolved quickly so that she can finally move on with her life.
Bravo has not revealed when the new season of the Real Housewives of Orange County will premiere.
