Shannon Beador's daughters Sophie, Stella, and Adeline are certainly growing up, even if their mom isn't exactly ready for that. But they've been hard at work pursuing their passions, including music, which we saw when the girls performed as Lock (Ladies of Rock) at the Blue Beet earlier this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Though the evening was slightly marred by some drama Shannon had with her in-laws, she still couldn't have been more excited to see her daughters take the stage. "It was fun. I was so proud. I didn't want to hear the song until they went to the studio to practice, which was the day before they performed, so I was blown away. It's really sweet," Shannon told The Daily Dish earlier this fall. "They're having so much fun with it and really practicing. And to see how much they've improved just from when they performed at the Blue Beet and had their little gig, it's cute."
After starting to learn piano at an early age, Shannon's daughters soon decided that they wanted to try something new. Adeline picked up the bass, Stella learned drums, and Sophie took on the guitar. "They've been in a band for three years, and it's the cutest thing," Shannon explained. "Ever since they filmed for the show, because it was so much fun for them, they've been practicing every day, their voices are so much better. They want to buy new music equipment now, so we're making them work to earn the money for that. When I get home, they're actually gonna record the song in a studio. It's a darling song."
Shannon and David encouraged their daughters to learn songs by bands like the Foo Fighters and Linkin Park. The couple loved to sit and listen to the girls play in the theater in their old house. Though Stella has expressed interest in pursuing a career as a drummer, Shannon said that this is mostly a hobby for her daughters. "It was a lot of fun, and they had a lot of fun, too," Shannon gushed. "No aspirations of being in a band later on. But for now, in their teen years, it's cute, and they're having fun with it."
Her daughters do already know that they would like to attend Shannon's alma mater, the University of Southern California. "It's just kind of become a family tradition. My kids love to go see the game," Shannon told The Daily Dish about their regular football family outings. "That's where they want to go to school."
But if Shannon's daughters do decide to give this music thing a try for real, you definitely won't see this RHOC mom transform into a momager. "Oh, no. I would never do that. I just want them to have fun. If they come to me and say, 'Mom and Dad, we're not having fun doing this anymore,' OK, what are we doing next? So I just want to encourage them," Shannon said. "Right now, they just have so many opportunities, and they're fun, bright kids. Clearly, David and I are living out what we wish we did when we were their age. I mean, I would love to say, 'Oh, yeah, when I was in a band, and I played a gig when I was 12 in a bar.' That would be kind of a fun story."
A Beador family band is not out of the question, either. We mean, have you seen Shannon rock out to "Greased Lightning" and "Pour Some Sugar on Me"? "Oh, who knows?" Shannon said when asked if she would ever join her daughters onstage. "After a couple cocktails, maybe one time I would."
We wonder what kind of singing Shannon did after this fun moment from this season of RHOC, below.
