It has only been a couple of days since Shannon Beador announced that she is divorcing her husband David after 17 years of marriage, and the known cheater has already moved on and is dating other women. The estranged husband of the Real Housewives of Orange County star has moved out of the family home and into his own bachelor pad. After defending his bad behavior for years, it seems Beador has finally had enough.
It should surprise no one that the 53-year-old construction executive is already dating, and according to Radar Online, David is not interested in keeping secrets when it comes to his new status as a single man. He is currently living in a rental condo and trying to work things out financially with Shannon so that things won’t get messy in court. However, Shannon may have different ideas.
After finally getting the nerve to kick her husband out of the house, Shannon reportedly wants to leave her ex with nothing. A source claims the reality star is “going after everything.”
The Beador marriage has been rocky, at best. From claims of abuse to a cheating scandal, Shannon has endured a lot during their time together.
It all started in 2003 when Shannon filed a restraining order against David after he was arrested for spousal battery and ordered to complete a batterer’s treatment program. Shannon vehemently denied the abuse allegations, when co-star Vicki Gunvalson took the news public last year, but it turned out Gunvalson’s claims were true.
Very proud of @ShannonBeador. It takes a very strong woman to walk away from disrespect and dysfunction. Best of luck to you Shannon! ?

As a result of the abuse allegations and the stress from the rumors, Shannon gained 40 pounds because of an increase in stress eating and drinking. She blamed Gunvalson for the stress and the weight gain and said that her marriage suffered because she didn’t think David was attracted to her anymore.
On top of the abuse, David also cheated on his wife during the couple’s first season on RHOC. In 2016, he cheated with the much younger — and married — Nicole McMackin, but after attending counseling, the Beador’s decided to stay together. They even decided to renew their wedding vows, and things seemed to be heading in the right direction.
But, things apparently took a turn for the worse, and after Shannon’s weight gain, and the lack of support she received from her husband, the mother of three decided it was time to call it quits.
The couple officially split about a month ago, and since then Shannon has already slimmed down. Us Weekly reports that she posted a new picture on Instagram taken during the season 12 reunion show, and Beador looked noticeably thinner.
Along with the picture, Shannon posted a message of thanks to her co-stars and fans for their love and support.
