Shannon Beador Returns To Instagram After Divorce Announcement [Photo]

Shannon Beador confirmed her plans to divorce husband David at the end of last week and days later, the Real Housewives of Orange County star returned to Instagram and shared a photo of her Season 12 reunion look.

Weeks after husband David allegedly vacated her Southern California home, the mother of three teamed up with her Bravo TV co-stars to film the upcoming reunion special for the currently airing season of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

"Reunion Season 12. Big hugs to @erickabrannon and @prive_shay for continual touch ups on a very emotional day. And a huge thank you to my cast mates and fans who are lifting me up with their love and support!" Shannon Beador wrote in the caption of her October 29 Instagram photo.

Shannon Beador and her co-stars reunited last week, around the time of her divorce announcement, to film the special.

As fans of The Real Housewives of Orange County will recall, Shannon Beador was open with her marital struggles throughout Season 12 and recently admitted to Tamra Judge that she was feeling completely disconnected from David and thinking of his months-long affair more frequently.

During the show's 10th season, David admitted to cheating on Shannon Beador with another woman but agreed to go to counseling and stay married to his wife.

Shannon Beador announced her divorce last Friday with a statement to Bravo's The Daily Dish.

"After much thought and careful consideration, David and I have made the difficult decision to separate," she explained. "We remain partners in parenthood and are committed to raising our three daughters."

Shannon Beador and her now-estranged husband were married for 17 years and share three children, including Stella, Adeline, and Sophia.

Throughout the 12th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon Beador has been struggling with weight gain and, as fans may recall, Vicki Gunvalson was initially blamed. As Beador explained, it was Gunvalson's allegations of abuse against her husband that caused her to stress eat.

To see more of Shannon Beador, David Beador, and their co-stars, including Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Meghan King Edmonds, Lydia McLaughlin, Kelly Dodd, and Peggy Sulahian, tune into new episodes of The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 on Monday nights at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.

No word yet on whether or not Shannon Beador's split will be addressed during a Season 12 episode.
