Prior to her husband’s mistress reveal, the Bravo star had been celebrating her 15th wedding anniversary. On Wednesday, the Bravo star shared a throwback photo from her and David’s wedding on Instagram, and hours later, she told fans he had surprised her by taking her to dinner at the restaurant where they had gotten engaged many years ago.
The following day, the Daily Mail revealed the Bravo star’s husband’s mistress was the also-married Nicole McMackin, President of Irvine Technology Corp. The report also revealed one of McMackin’s children was on a team with a child of the Bravo star.
“It turns out that Nicole purposely put her kid on [Shannon Beador]’s daughter’s basketball team, a team that David coaches. The whole thing is upsetting for a lot of different reasons. They began talking during games and Nicole would ask her how her relationship was going. It just seems really underhanded and manipulative, almost as if she was probing for info to use to break them up. Or maybe she was just feeling guilty.”
During The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 10, the Bravo star had spoken of the woman and revealed she had befriended her.
While the Bravo star and her husband, David, have mended their marriage in the months since his eight-month affair, a Radar Online report on September 18 claimed McMackin’s marriage to husband Reed was still on the rocks.
“It has been devastating for the family and having it play out on national television is making it hard for [her husband] Reed to forgive Nicole. Nicole wishes she had never gotten involved with David! But she opened that can of worms and will have to deal with it. Reed would have left her if they didn’t have the kids.”
Radar Online’s source revealed Reed hasn’t yet filed for divorce from Nicole, but “nothing is off the table.”
For more of Bravo star Shannon Beador, as well as her marriage to husband David, tune into The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 10 on Thursday nights at 10 p.m. on Bravo.
