Shannon reveals her husband David would like to move out of the house.0
I think Shannon's love tank is completely empty (read The Five Love Languages) you would understand that statement. Her primary love language is probably quality time and David's is probably words of affirmation. Both aren't feeling loved because they aren't interested in fulfilling each other's primary love language. It's a vicious cycle if you don't recognize this simple fact. Shannon seems soooo insecure and needy. And almost like she doesn't trust her husband when he is trying to show her affection. She's like a stiff board when David tries to hug her. Very awkward.
Very sad how you treat your husband. Your marriage was in trouble before you came onto the show but instead of fixing it and staying of the show to do it, you chose the show and the money. That is a very telling.
Shannon, watching you whine & complain about your marriage constantly and how you don't feel loved or important is getting old, especially since you treat your husband with such disregard...you constantly are correcting him, complaining about how he does and says things, you act like you're disappointed in his very presence...imagine how HE feels, do you think HE feels loved or appreciated? Work on your marriage that you claim you'll do anything to save, and stop blaming Heather for all your problems.
Shannon, have you ever considered that you insecurities about feeling loved might stem from something deeper like your childhood and you are replaying out those dramas in your marriage. I am surprised because you do so much energetic work but maybe try loving who you are first completely and give your husband a break for being solely the one who bares it all. You also put him down alot, even if it is joking that can weigh on someone's self esteem. Count your blessings, you have a husbands who works , a gorgeous home, wonderful children, and you don't have to work in a cubicle all day long staring at the computer. Think about where your insecurity about not feeling loved really comes from.
Shannon, I just don't understand why you would air your problems on national TV. None of this makes any sense. How can you make a whole show about the public learning of your personal business when you are the one that shared it on TV. It is hard to watch Heather as she is the epitome of bad behavior in a mature woman. I tried to like Terry but the more I see of him the more detestable his smirks, comments and actions are, such as lurking around and watching his wife's reprehensible conduct.
Shannon wtf, you invite an oil salesperson over and then you immediately start to gossip about Heather. You are so obsessed with cutting down Heather you can't see; you are your biggest problem. Heather has a very concise way of speaking and she is very intelligent, maybe that's a threat to some and they see her as condescending. But geeze Louise you go after her like a great white shark. I think you have been the "fancy pants" in your other relationships and when you met Heather, you felt usurped. You have an intense desire to shred Heather. Don’t even think of insulting anyone for gossiping when you hold the crown in gossip. Just a tip, you husband is royal jerk but he is your jerk and you should have more respect for him. Is your marriage worthless because he is hungry when he comes home? He likes chips and salsa. So disrespect him for that. Classy.
BRAVO please fix the issues with the comments on the blogs. The blogs are no fun without the comments......I promise I will be good.
Between the vodka and your constant need to talk about how you feel, I'm surprised David is still there.
Confiding in Tamara? Big mistake... Big, big mistake.
While it's very obvious you are a nagging housewife, it's not lost on people that your husband, like most husbands, is passive-aggressive. Women are accused of being nags, however ask yourself this question, were you a nag before you got married? Yeah, I didn't think so. So, when a husband plays the victim while he's pushing your buttons it's very easy to look like the "bad" one. The really strange thing though is that you were totally blind-sided that he wants to leave. It seems you're both pretty much done with each other.
I can only imagine that David didn't want to tell you to your face, because he just didn't want to hear your whiny, condescending, voice. The sound of you, can make a non-drinker, drink. You've taken every opportunity possible to mistreat this man, on national t.v. The way that you interact with him in the presence of your children, is especially appalling. And, you didn't know why he didn't want to spend any time with you? Are you kidding? I hope you're watching yourself on t.v., so, you can see exactly what we've been seeing, all season. You are a miserable, spoiled woman, that is so self-involved, that there isn't any room for anyone else in her life.
Run as far as you can from Tamara as a friend! She told Heather David wanted a divorce right on TV come on! Get a therapist to talk too - these women r jealous ( the housewives r)! I like u Shannon I know your hurting keep private work it out wishing luck
I like you Shannon until you start in with your husband David, from very beginning you started in about your husband on a TV show, the fans didn't even get to know you but we all know your in a miserable marriage! I do like the way u tell it like u see it regarding the other women
Shannon, if you really want your marriage to continue, you better start treating your husband like a partner in the marriage instead of one of the staff. You speak to him in a condescending way and putting him down. You act like you are better than he is.
...................run David, run!!!! How or why you ended up with the nagging complainer is beyond me!! If ever there were 2 people who were so totally incompatible it's you and Shannon.
While I can sympathize I find your treatment towards your husband appalling. You are constantly speaking of how you "don’ feel loved" so that is your excuse for your horrendous treatment. Well how do you think HE feels? Loved? Start looking at yourself and your behavior instead of worrying about his. He provides a wonderful home for you and your children and all you do is bitch. He tried to propose a solution and you just shot him down.You also make him look stupid. Stop with all this ridiculous holistic crap for 10 year old and focus on your man. I'm surprised he hasn't strayed. You weekend away "oh wait I’m not drunk enough", seriously? Cut out the boozing too, who wants to be with drunk.
On a side note, does anyone know why none of the other blogs have the comments showing, nor is there a place to post a comment? I noticed this a couple of days ago, one minute the comments were there and the next minute they were gone...what's going on, Bravo?
Shannon, I do sympathize with you to a certain degree, but it is very difficult because of your consistently shabby treatment of your husband. I don't recall you showing him one ounce of respect for anything he does for you. The poor man cannot even have a snack or a glass of water without you barking at him. I don't think the guy is perfect either. He has some rather dim views of womanhood, but they may have been derived from being married to you.
Usually, when someone leaves the premises, it is all over, except the crying. You need to change. Try to get your husband to try marriage counseling. Before you do , seek individual counseling for yourself. I know you think you are on top of it all, but you are not. Anyone that has to constantly and feverishly pursue the amount of attention that you do, is not running on all four cylinders. All the healers, butt kissers and shamans that you are obsessed with is just plan unhealthy. You need to get you and your marriage fixed pronto, there is no time to lose.
I haven't seen the episodes where Shannon was being nagging and bitching but it's clear that she loves her husband and there are problems there. I'm willing to bet that each has both contributed to the problems and how she deals with it is to bitch and then pull away from him. I did see him act like a tool at Heather's barbecue, so I don't think he's completely innocent here.
Shannon, all I've seen you do is complain and belittle your husband. You don't support him, laugh with him, etc. I mean, it's as though the guy can't do anything right! Even at the hotel (which you said was fabulous to Tamra), you whined and even had to drink a lot in order to be with him. WTF?
There's something going wrong with you and you're taking it out on David.
Dear Shannon...You are the most unhappy woman, looking in ALL the wrong places to make you happy. David can't make you happy, he can be a part of your happiness, money, clothes, houses, etc... You spend (as we have seen so far) an awful lot of time on daily visits to the acupuncturist, crystals, etc. Those are not going to give you joy, fullness, happiness. You need to fix you. Personally, my faith and all that comes with it (personal relationship with God, church, reading my bible, fellowship with like people), has given me true joy, purpose, understanding. However, I also spent a year with an amazing counselor. I put in the hard work. I was honest with the process. I wanted to be a healthy person, with healthy perspective. I wanted to be the best, healthy, stable, happy, loving me. There is not one person in this world that can do it for you. YOU have to be willing to go to that place of hurt and deal with it. Let me tell you for sure what I know....Behaving like that toward your husband will cause him to run. You have backed him against a wall. It is so hard to watch you crying out in your way which is brash, offensive, hurtful. What do you expect David to do while you are acting this way toward him? No, no matter what anyone posts on this comment board, don't listen to those who say cut your losses, get a divorce. FIGHT, just fight the right way. Know you need real help and go get it.....AT ALL COSTS!!! You, your husband, your children must be your top priority over anything, including this show!!! I will pray for you and your family tonight Shannon, I will pray for peace and a clear mind to see what you need to do in order to really find happiness in yourself, so you can give that to your family. Final note....Hanging around with superficial, self absorbed people like the cast of this show is not a good or safe place for you or your family to be.
Kitteracres@aol.com. That is exactly what is wrong with our society! Disposable marriages! People are not taking their marriage vows seriously. Shannon is changing and wants her marriage to work. It is obvious that David and Shannon have a deep love for one another. I am hopeful that they will do the "work" necessary to heal their marriage, that has produced 3 beautiful precious children.
This episode made my blood boil- to hear you bitch & complain about how you only get to see your husband 3 hrs a day?? Honey, my husband is on the road 3 weeks out of every month, and you can bet your life when he comes home I'm not bitching & nagging him, we enjoy every moment we have together and have for 35 years of marriage...I have 2 good girlfriends who've both lost their husbands recently to terminal illness, and they would give ANYTHING to have one more SECOND with their husbands but all you do is whine & complain when you're around him. Then you bite his head off when he suggests that weekly massages for CHILDREN are perks??? Guess what Shannon, they ARE perks! There are children in our country starving...You need to get help and then get involved in some charity work or something...I just can't with you-ugh!
Shannon, you have been so fortunate with you're upbringing. Not to mention, a hard working husband, home every night in bed by
8:30p, providing you the lifestyle to which you are accustomed. Most of us do not have the lavish
lifestyle and 'also' at times do not
get more than 4/5 hours with hubbies. Especially if they work longer hours with 'less bacon' to bring home. Please be more grateful, get couple's counseling for the 'children' as well as the marriage. Choose you're friends wisely! The wrong 'Influence' can only damage the hardship which already exists, emotionally.
@Jeanran I agree about Shannon but disagree about Heather, I think she is the epitome of GOOD behavior in a mature woman...the epitome of bad behavior would be Tamra & Vicki.
@Tess314 I agree 100%, I like Heather and can barely stomach Shannon..could Heather have handled it a bit better at her house-maybe, but seeing how Shannon had just treated her at HER home (yelling at her, calling her names) I really don't blame Heather for being a bit cold towards her.Also, I couldn't believe how Shannon in one breath is crying about her marriage problems, and claiming that she'll do anything to fix it & save her marriage, then in the next, she's once again putting her husband down in front of his children and for what? Because he likes chips & salsa before dinner? Ummm, lots of people do, Shannon..it's called having an appetizer before a meal.Marriage is hard work Shannon, I know, I've been married almost 35 years to my best friend & the love of my life, I don't think you want to put in the work nor do I see any kind of love between you & David, for woman that claims she'll do anything to save her marriage you sure a have a funny way of going about it.
@randrew I know, right? Wht the heck is going on?Fix it, Bravo!
Yep, confiding in Tamara was a big mistake! It seems to me that Tamara would lime to live the life of Heather and Shannon!
@Xxmargo I seriously doubt anyone is jealous of Shannon Beador, who would want to be like this whiny, neurotic alcoholic mess of a woman?
@judy@london I been trying to figure out why I can't read comments also....boo BRAVO. Fix it please.
@judy@london Oh my Lordy, I thought it was my ancient computer. I have no idea what's going on. Weird
@judy@london Reading the comments is the main reason I come on this website. Bravo, please fix the problem.
@judy@london .........I've been trying to figure that out too.???
@nadalotta Exactly....Wtf?????? He seems good enough to me...
Right on the money. I am a widow of 1.5 years after 30 years of marriage. I am 50 years old. My husband was my soulmate. We did everything together. Most importantly we prayed together every night. Fight, don't give up, your family can do with less material things and self indulging luxieries.
David said give up the massages and voice lessons and travel more. He was crying out to spend more time with his family. While these things are nice, in reality can your children support this lifestyle when they get out on their own. Most cant and that's why they won't leave home when the time comes.
Love and pray together as a family and save your marriage. I am praying for you. A day doesn't pass that I don't cry for my husband. Keep the faith.
@TXSandy Preach it sistah...Are you LISTENING Shannon??????...You better straighten up and fly right...
@Mstexas I agree with the part of disposable marriages. However, I don't see the deep love you speak of. I think David has been putting up with her shrew like behavior long before this show started. I see him at the end of his rope and pulling away from her in each episode. And I can't say I blame him.
@Mstexas How is she changing? If she is, then I must have missed an episode.
Too little too late. You can't treat a person like trash for years and then say, "whoops...sorry." He can do way better than her.
Exactly- boo hoo to you and your hard life. That man is working his ass off to provide for his family. Maybe instead of complaining you should say thank you and be more grateful.
@judy@london Omg!!!! Shannon are you listening...?????
@judy@london It's her Cotillion mentality. lol
@judy@london I'm with you... I think some women have it a lot worse (like you for instance) but she just can't quit. She should give him some space when he gets home for gosh sakes... for starters anyway.
@TampaLisa Exactly my husband works HARD and doesn't get paid enough for all he does...And very little money left after bills.. so I take up the slack with my job...we help each other...What do YOU DO SHANNON????
@judy@london @Tess314 A bit cold? Heather has had it out for Shannon since day one - as she feels her own friendships threatened by Shannon's relationship with both Tamra and Vicki. She keeps using Shannon as the excuse for how Vicki and Tamra are acting. Instead of realizing they are tired of feeling like Heather is condescending and talks down to them.
