Is a Bravo marriage headed for divorce?
Although Shannon and David Beador have exposed serious marital issues during the 10th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon recently confirmed to fans that she and her husband are not preparing to split.
@MavMason @RHOGossip It is hard to watch. But our marriage doesn’t crumble at all…

The Beador’s Bravo marriage appeared to have hit a rocky patch during the ninth season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, which aired last year. However, by the end of filming, the pair appeared to be in a great place. Unfortunately, that great place turned source just a short time after production on season nine wrapped. It was revealed this season that David Beador admitted to cheating on her in April of last year.
After coming across hotel receipts in her husband’s briefcase, Shannon confronted him. At first, David denied having an affair, but eventually, he admitted he had been unfaithful. Since then, the couple has been in therapy, doing what they can to keep their Bravo marriage intact.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Shannon opened up about her and David’s decision to air their Bravo marriage troubles on The Real Housewives of Orange County season 10 during a blog post earlier this month. Speaking to fans, Shannon explained that although it was hard to put her Bravo marriage on display, she hopes it will ultimately help others.
“The decision was not an easy one. But after much counseling and discussions with our children, we thought that we would tell our story with the hope that other couples who have faced similar heartbreak can repair and restore their marriage like David and I are doing.”
Shannon also opened up about how she was affected by David’s revelations during therapy.
“When watching David reveal the highs and lows in his life, I felt like I was punched in the stomach. I saw that he listed the affair as both a ‘high’ and a ‘low.’ I heard him say that the affair gave him ‘new life.’ Today, I am trying to process through the hurt that I feel from his comments.”
The Beadors joined the Bravo show for season nine, replacing Alexis Bellino and Gretchen Rossi, who left after season eight.
