Shannon Beador may have settled her divorce with ex-husband David Beador in June 2019 but unfortunately for the longtime Real Housewives of Orange County cast member, their court battle is far from over.

According to a report shared by Radar Online on July 30, Shannon is taking David to court, claiming her former spouse is refusing to allow their children to appear on the Bravo reality series.

The outlet then shared details from Shannon's court documents, which were obtained by The Blast.

In Shannon's court documents, she requested she be granted an emergency hearing to discuss the matter, noting that David was refusing to sign off on a document that would allow their 17-year-old twins, Stella and Adeline, to appear on the 16th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, which is currently in the midst of production.

Shannon and David also share an adult daughter, Sophie, who turned 30 last month and does not need David's approval if she'd like to be featured on camera.

According to Shannon, her situation needs immediate attention because The Real Housewives of Orange County is her main source of income.

“The filming of the Show is my primary career and is part of and supportive of my primary income source, for which I use said income to care for my children. If my children do not film on the show, I will be in violation of my contract and will lose my job, and thus my ability to earn income,” she wrote in her court documents, expressing the possibility of being fired from the show.

In his own court documents, David admitted that he does not want Stella and Adeline to appear on The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Although David previously appeared on the show himself, and allowed the girls to continue to filming once he and Shannon ended their marriage, he pointed out in his latest court documents that his situation has changed.

“My current wife also has two other children of her own that do not need to have their mother exposed to possible disparaging comments made about our family on national television,” he argued.

David continued on, making it clear that if his ex-wife is willing to agree not to bad-mouth him on The Real Housewives of Orange County, he will sign off on their kids appearing on the series.

Shannon and David were married for 17 years, from 2000 until 2017.

The Real Housewives of Orange County cast began filming the upcoming 16th season of the reality series in early July.

No word yet on when the new episodes will begin airing on Bravo.
