Shannon Beador and her husband David went through a dramatic 10th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County after he admitted to engaging in an affair months prior to filming, but luckily, they have since mended their marriage.
Following a rocky patch, Shannon Beador and her husband attended counseling, and after getting their marriage back on track, they’ve continued to flaunt their love for one another on Instagram. And in their latest photos, Shannon Beador and David are seen celebrating the Fourth of July with Tamra Judge, Jeff Lewis, Jenni Pulos, and a few other Bravo celebrities.
“Happy Fourth!” Shannon Beador wrote on Instagram on July 7, adding three heart emojis.

Tamra Judge also shared a photo of their celebration on Instagram, along with the caption, “Happy 4th of July from the Beador’s @shannonbeador @jennipulos @jljefflewis #bravoFamily.”
Since Shannon Beador joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County during Season 9, replacing Lydia McLaughlin and Gretchen Rossi, who left after Season 8, she and Judge have established a true friendship both on-screen and off.
During The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 10, Shannon Beador exposed her deepest heartbreak after learning her husband had cheated, and while it was a rocky road to recovery, she and David were in a good place once filming on Season 10 wrapped, and now that Season 11 has been filmed, their good times have continued — at least for the most part.
While Shannon Beador was accused of being unappreciative of a gift David gave her during an episode last month, and appeared to be in a heated fight with him during the trailer, they’ve been spending much more quality time together, and with their three children, since the affair.

Although Shannon Beador and her husband are doing well today, and continue to work on making their marriage great, she admitted during Season 10 that she and David were hesitant to showcase their struggles on The Real Housewives of Orange County.
“We went back and forth with the decision [to go public] for quite some time and whether or not we should put our family and our kids through it,” Shannon Beador admitted during an interview with Radar Online last year. “After a lot of counseling with our church, our counselors and with our children – a lot of discussions with our children – we decided that this was an opportunity to show couples that you don’t have to throw in the towel after something like this happens.”
Prior to joining the show during Season 9, Shannon Beador thought that being on the show would actually help her marriage. Little did she know, her husband was sleeping with someone else, and their marriage would soon implode. Still, when it comes to regrets, Shannon Beador appeared to have none.
“I loved the idea when it first started of seeing my life played back and seeing our marriage played back because at that time I wanted my husband to spend more time with me and I thought he’d go ‘Yikes! I need to spend more time with my wife.’ Then all of this happened, so it has been a blessing,” she explained. “There is good and bad, but there is more good.”
