This week we learned the devastating news that Shannon Beador’s husband, David, had engaged in an extramarital affair.
During the intense first episode we witnessed the Real Housewives of Orange County star and her husband go through a couples retreat to attempt to repair their relationship. Although Shannon admitted in her blog how difficult this was to watch, she’s continuing to remain positive and focused on the future of her family.
In a post on her personal Instagram, Shannon shared a quote that says, “It always seems impossible until it’s done,” along with some words of encouragement for others who may be enduring similar situations.
”Focusing on the positives today and every day!” she writes. “Thank you to all who have shared their stories. Sending healing energy your way!”
Fans responded positively, supporting the Housewife and acknowledging her bravery to share such a personal part of her life.
”I appreciate how candid you got on Monday nights episode,” one fan wrote. “I think so many people think the OC housewives (or any reality TV star for that matter) live these carefree lives, but you and everyone else are just as much a regular human being than the stranger down the street. You experience triumphs and struggles, highs and lows. So thank you for sharing YOUR story and I pray for healing, peace and happy times to come (if they haven't already) to you and your family.”
”Shannon your honesty and bravery are to be celebrated in a world that keeps such things in the dark,” another commented. “Thank you for putting your very hurtful experience in the light. For when it's in the light is when healing and change take place. You are precious and I enjoy you and your precious girls!”
