Shannon Beador had a secret boyfriend while filming the current season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Season 13 of Bravo’s hit reality show focused on Beador’s struggles following her divorce from David Beador, but hardly anyone knew that she was secretly dating months after the breakup.
Tamra Judge exposed Beador’s secret dating life during Part 2 of the Season 13 reunion. Judge dropped the bombshell in a heated exchange with Beador, who was trying to turn the tables on her.
“I get frustrated because she sits there and she’s like, ‘No, I’m not dating. I’m not dating,” Judge shared. “You were dating a guy when we were filming.”
Host Andy Cohen quickly asked Beador if Judge was telling the truth. According to Daily Mail, Beador confirmed that she was dating while Season 13 was filming. She did not, however, stay with the guy because he was a huge jerk.
Judge then laid into Beador for always playing the victim card and acting like her husband’s dating life was too difficult to deal with.
The dating revelation played out after Beador was questioned about her love life. The RHOC star told Cohen that she is back in the dating game and loves meeting new people.
However, she did not confess that she was dating someone in Season 13. That information only came out after Judge jumped in.
Beador was also asked about the rumors surrounding her husband’s new girlfriend, who is reportedly pregnant with their first. Beador refused to confirm the pregnancy rumors, though she did reveal that her kids like David’s new lover.
I believe they wrapped the show and Tamra stopped her nonsense and went on like all was good… BAM HERE WE ARE at the reunion. Of course Shannon is shocked. Even Vicki is cringing… Tamra is unbelievable. Bless you're heart Shannon. #RHOCreunion

Beador and David share three children together: Stella, Sophie, and Adeline. Their divorce has not been finalized, and things might get nasty as their custody battle heats up.
In the meantime, at least Beador is back in the dating pool. Hopefully she does not keep any future relationships secret, as fans would definitely like to meet her boyfriend next season.
