Although reality TV shows often thrive off the drama they create, Season 10 of Real Housewives of Orange County featured a stunning revelation in regards to Shannon Beador. The episode revealed that Beador's husband, David, had been cheating on her with another woman. While the shocking news came as a surprise to most fans, Tamra Judge stated that she had known about the affair for a few months.
In addition to Judge admitting she knew about the situation, another co-star and friend of Beador has come out and revealed that she, too, knew about the affair. In a recent interview with Radar Online, Lizzie Rovsek stated that she knew something was going on with her fellow co-star.
"I knew there were some things going on," Rovsek stated in the interview. She went on to add that she kept the information to herself because of the close bond she shares with Beador.
"Shannon is a good friend of mine. We talked about things that are close to us and there are certain things that, when you are really good friends with someone, you keep to yourself."Despite all the troubles that come with any affair, the couple have decided to remain together and work things out. The pair have had three children throughout their marriage, including Sophie, 13, and twins Stella and Adeline, 10.
Although they made the decision to go public and announce the affair during the Season 10 premiere of Real Housewives of Orange County, the Beador family did not reveal the name of the woman David cheated with or when the ordeal went down.
Meanwhile, Rovsek's comments hint that she knew about the affair for quite some time. While most people would tend to break their silence after learning of such news, Rovsek admitted that it was something that just shouldn't be talked about. "You don't go and talk about it to other people and you keep your mouth shut," she stated, adding "Not everybody does that."
At the same time, Judge praised her fellow co-star for deciding to publicize the affair and not keep it secret.
"I think that it's great of her and scary at the same time for her to share that with everybody," Judge explained to OK! Magazine. "She could've easily brushed it under the rug and said, 'Oh it's a lie.' But the truth of the matter is it's very real."
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Monday nights on Bravo.
