Last month, as the Bravo reality series continued to reveal new details about Nicole McMackin’s eight-month affair with David, the Daily Mail revealed the woman’s identity, which hadn’t been disclosed on the show. According to the site, Nicole McMackin is President of Irvine Technology Corp, a firm which provides IT solutions and personnel, who met David in September, 2013, at a business club for entrepreneurs.
It was also noted that Nicole McMackin and David lived just 20 minutes away from one another.
After hitting it off, Nicole McMackin and David began an affair, which lasted until April of the following year when his wife, Shannon, confronted him about receipts she found in his briefcase.
“When he got back she confronted him and David admitted to an affair,” Daily Mail‘s source revealed.
Although some would have expected for Shannon to confront Nicole McMackin at that point, the Real Housewives of Orange County star, who shares three daughters with David, 13-year-old Sophie and 10-year-old twins, Stella and Adeline, instead chose to focus on how to mend her marriage. All the while, however, Nicole McMackin was closer to home that Shannon knew.
”It turns out that [Nicole McMackin] purposely put her kid on Shannon’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 McMackin] 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.”
While Shannon appeared to be ready to move on from the affair during Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, and after filming, she was recently met with an awkward situation, when she and Nicole McMackin came face-to-face at a USC football game on Saturday, October 24.
According to an Us Weekly report on October 25, Nicole McMackin made it a point to be seen by Shannon and David during the sporting event, and later ran into Shannon in the stadium tunnel.
“That’s when Shannon calmly said to [Nicole McMackin], ‘You have a lot of nerve being here,’ ” an insider said.
Nicole McMackin then placed her face “two inches from Shannon’s face,” yelled, “F**k you!” and labeled her “sick” and “crazy.”
A short time after her encounter with Nicole McMackin took place, Shannon returned to Instagram, where she shared a photo of herself and David, with the caption, “Love my husband! Having an amazing night at the most incredible restaurant @panxacocina #restored #godisgood.”

On October 26, International Business Times revealed more details about Nicole McMackin’s affair with David, claiming Shannon’s husband believed he was in love with Nicole McMackin, who was also married at the time of their affair.

As for the current state of Nicole McMackin’s marriage, she and husband Reed have remained married, as well, and continue to parent their children.
