Did Shannon Beador have an awkward run-in with her husband’s former mistress Saturday night as they watched a football game? The Real Housewives of Orange County strongly implied that such a thing happened when she posted on Instagram that someone with “no moral compass” showed up to the game.
Shannon posted a photo of herself, David, and some friends at the USC Trojans vs. Utah Utes game. Shannon commented that someone with “no moral compass” decided to show up. She told her followers to watch parts 2 and 3 of the season 10 reunion episode to understand who she’s talking about. She ended her post by calling the person in question a “narcissist” and “stalker.”
Who was Shannon talking about? Some people guessed Vicki Gunvalson. While Vicki and Shannon became fast friends on season 9 and started off season 10 as good friends, the two are currently no longer friends, due to Vicki feeling betrayed by Shannon asking about Brooks Ayers’ cancer diagnoses and Shannon feeling as if Vicki was, and still is, duping her all along regarding Brooks having cancer.
In response to the speculation, Shannon denied that the person in question is Vicki. While Shannon may think that Vicki is a liar, she doesn’t think that Vicki is a stalker.
“It’s not Vicki. She’s not a stalker.”
Two of Shannon Beador’s co-stars assumed that the person who showed up to the football game was the woman David Beador had an affair with. Both Heather Dubrow and Meghan King Edmonds slammed David’s former mistress. Heather told Shannon to trip the woman. Meghan was even more vocal. Meghan threatened that if she ever sees the mistress, she’ll do something the woman will never forget.
“#homewrecker!!!! Ugh! She needs to leave! You worked hard to save what she helped try to destroy and for her to prance around you like she did nothing wrong makes me want to smack that smug attitude straight into next week! If MKE ever sees her disgusting self anywhere I can promise you she will never forget it. And that is all I will say.”
A sneak peek of the reunion show shows Shannon talking about David’s affair. When asked whether David ever explained why he cheated, Shannon says that she “was nagging and complaining.” Tamra says that Shannon’s behavior did not give David a hall pass to cheat while Heather says that a spouse either fixes a broken marriage or leaves but doesn’t cheat.
Since the subject wasn’t brought up on part 1 of the reunion, which aired this past Monday, this means that viewers will see it discussed on part 2 or 3, or perhaps both.
In early October, Shannon and David appeared on Andy Cohen’s talk show Watch What Happens Live to talk about the affair and their marriage. Shannon revealed that David moved out of the marital home for two weeks and even gave one of their daughters his wedding ring because he didn’t want it anymore. She also revealed that she actually had a phone conversation with the mistress.
“In that conversation I wanted to say certain things, but I didn’t. I said, ‘I want my family back.’I’m not going to cry, but ‘I want my family back,’ and her response was, ‘He’s obsessed with me, he’s like, he wants to marry me, and I don’t even know the guy.’ And it wasn’t kind. It wasn’t a kind conversation.”
David confirmed that Heather Dubrow knew about the affair at the time it was happening because she had mutual friends with the woman he was cheating with. He also said that he thought that he was in love with the woman and was ready to leave Shannon.
David’s affair and Shannon’s struggle to get over that and repair their marriage was a major storyline on the tenth season. Shannon revealed on the premiere episode that she found out that David had an eighth-month long affair on, of all days, April Fool’s Day, in 2014. David admitted to the affair after she found hotel receipts in his work bag. Shannon and David were shown going to a couples retreat for intensive counseling. In one scene later on in the season, Shannon told Heather Dubrow and Tamra Judge about David’s affair.
It was Vicki Gunvalson’s act of telling her brother’s girlfriend, Ronda, about David’s cheating that put the nail in the coffin when it comes to her friendship with Shannon Beador. On the Real Housewives of Orange County season 10 finale episode, Shannon angrily yelled at Vicki after Ronda let it slip that she knew about the affair. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Shannon said that Vicki betrayed her trust because at the time of filming, Vicki did not know that anyone else knew about David’s affair and so knew that she was supposed to continue keeping it a secret. Vicki maintains that she didn’t betray Shannon since some of the housewives already knew about David’s affair prior to the season finale filming.
