David Beador is rumored to be dating several women and could care less if it’s made public. Last week it was revealed that he and Real Housewives of Orange County star, Shannon Beador, are separating. The two officially split a few weeks ago, but fans were just made aware of it on Friday.
A source tells Radar Online that David Beador isn’t being secretive anymore and “has been publicly dating other women” since he and Shannon decided to split a few weeks ago.
David and Shannon Beador have struggled to make their marriage work for a while. Their marital woes were shown on RHOC after David had an affair with Nicole McMackin. Things seemed to be improving for the couple when David arranged a vow renewal ceremony in Season 11, but their happiness was only temporary. Things got worse when Vicki Gunvalson claimed she had photos of Shannon’s injuries from the alleged abuse she suffered by David. Shannon denied the allegations and blamed Vicki for her 40-pound weight gain over the last year. She shared in Season 12 that the stress of trying to keep her marriage together after Vicki’s expose drove her to eat and drink uncontrollably. Shannon hasn’t overcome the emotional pain of David cheating on her and has lashed out at her cast mates all season. As RHOC Season 12 winds down, Shannon Beador announced on Friday that they’re separating.
“After much thought and careful consideration, David and I have made the difficult decision to separate. We remain partners in parenthood and are committed to raising our three daughters. This is not the future we envisioned, and we kindly ask for privacy, especially for our children, during this transitional time,” Shannon said.
David Beador reportedly moved out of the family’s home a few weeks ago and has been “living life as a single man in his bachelor pad nearby.” A source close to Shannon tells Radar Online that David is living in a rental condo and is trying to get a financial settlement worked out so their divorce won’t get “super messy in court.”
In 2003, David Beador was arrested for spousal abuse against his wife. In spite of the public records that have been published about the couple, Shannon has adamantly defended her husband. Since her announcement of their split, however, Shannon has reportedly apologized to her RHOC cast mates for defending David.
A photo Shannon shared on Instagram shows her looking happy and quite a bit slimmer than what viewers have seen in Season 12. The image was snapped after the Season 12 reunion was taped.
Maybe her split from David Beador is already having a positive impact in her life!
