Shannon Beador Leaving ‘RHOC’ After Abuse Scandal — Huge Cast Overhaul Coming?

Shannon Beador may be on her way out the Bravo door. After the Real Housewives of Orange County season from hell, many of the ladies are at their breaking point. Fans were hoping that things could be repaired between the ladies when Vicki Gunvalson dumped Brooks Ayers after a season of cancer drama. While that initially appeared to be the case, the addition of Kelly Dodd to the cast was a bit much and threw things completely out of line. Beador and her husband, David, shared their vow renewal mid-season and by the end of the show, rumors of physical abuse were being spread around.

Vicki Gunvalson and Shannon Beador were once very close. In fact, she is the one who brought Beador to the Real Housewives of Orange County. Things seemed to be going well for the two working together in the beginning, but the string of bad things has ruined their friendship beyond repair as was shown on the season finale of the Real Housewives of Orange County Monday night. According to All About the Tea, Shannon Beador is likely exiting the reality show. She has had enough with the physical abuse allegations thrown out there by Gunvalson.

The trip to Ireland really put an end to any friendship Shannon Beador was going to have with Vicki Gunvalson. Allegations that David Beador hit his wife and that she was in a domestic abuse situation spread like wildfire among the girls. Those who weren’t told about the Beador accusations were informed on the bus in Ireland when Kelly Dodd told everyone what she had heard. Since then, it has been downhill for the Beadors. Shannon has been attempting to do damage control and deflect comments about a police report from over a decade ago.

At the reunion, Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge will get to say their piece to Vicki Gunvalson again. The two were on her heavy during the season finale of the Real Housewives of Orange County. With the reunion airing in just a few more days, there are several accusations floating around social media. Beador replied to a tweet where someone told her to get off Gunvalson’s show, and she replied with something that alluded to the fact that she could be leaving the franchise. Beador was brought on by Gunvalson, and as of now, only the OG of the OC is slated to appear next season along with her only friend, Kelly Dodd.

There has been some serious Twitter drama aimed at Shannon Beador as well. In fact, Gretchen Rossi and Lizzie Rovsek jumped in to defend Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson. It was pretty tense on the social networking site, and there were rumors that Beador actually asked Bravo to shut it down because she was tired of it. She hasn’t stopped tweeting and has been taking cheap shots at both Dodd and her former friend, Gunvalson. The demise of this friendship was slow and painful, spanning two seasons. Beador is over it and wants to move on.

If Shannon Beador doesn’t return to the Real Housewives of Orange County, the other ladies may not either. Tamra Judge has been vocal about her distaste for Vicki Gunvalson as well. Both Beador and Judge have been accused of sabotaging antics. If this is the case, Bravo will likely show them both the door. Gunvalson is the one they want to keep happy, and if she wants them gone, it will happen. Heather Dubrow is a toss up. She hasn’t really been in the middle too much so she may or may not return. Meghan Edmonds confirmed her exit and the reunion would be her final appearance as a housewife from the OC. Shannon Beador may be on her way out, but it won’t be the last time she is seen or heard from, especially where Gunvalson is concerned.
