Shannon Beador Weight Gain Not A Big Deal To Viewers: ‘RHOC’ Star Distancing Herself From Show?

Shannon Beador admitted she had gained about 40 pounds when she returned to The Real Housewives of Orange County this season. Shannon was clearly dealing with some stress issues, as she blamed her weight gain entirely on Vicki Gunvalson. She claimed that Vicki’s comments about abuse within her marriage caused her great stress, which caused her to eat more. Gunvalson denied that her talking had anything to do with Shannon’s weight gain. While the weight gain may be a big deal to Shannon and her husband, David Beador, the weight isn’t a big deal for her fans. It’s more important that she works on her self-confidence.

According to a new Instagram post, Shannon Beador is getting plenty of support on her Instagram page when it comes to her weight gain. Several people reached out to Beador about her weight, revealing that they didn’t think she was that heavy. Of course, Beador went from 130 pounds to about 170, resulting in about 40 pounds of weight gain. While some viewers believed her when she said it was Vicki’s fault, others pointed to her marriage, saying that her relationship with David wasn’t healthy. But for her fans, the most important thing isn’t shedding the weight but merely getting her confidence back.

“Damn, if people think you’re heavy, they’re crazy. You’re a beautiful woman Shannon. Wear whatever color you want. Hell, how thin do people want you to be? You need your self-confidence back. Let that be your goal,” one follower wrote to Shannon on her Instagram post, as she shared a photo of herself with Tamra Judge while on a trip to Iceland earlier this year.

Shannon and Tamra appear to be growing closer, as they have remained friends after this season of the show. Many of the other ladies are bonding, as many of them recently went to support Lydia McLaughlin at a Nobleman party. Tamra and Shannon were missing from the group picture, which hinted they were not present. In addition, Beador hasn’t been writing her blogs for The Real Housewives of Orange County for the past couple of weeks, which could hint that the show isn’t a priority anymore.
