Bravo BFFs Breakdown: How Did Shannon Beador Meet Jeff Lewis?

Get deets on this adorable Bravo friendship at first sight: what Housewife brought Shannon and the Jeff Lewis Design team together?

Jeff and Shannon Roll Around on Rugs

This Flipping Out slash Real Housewives of Orange County friendship affair is the real deal, ya'll. If Jeff Lewis, Jenni Pulos, and Gage Edward surprising Shannon at her beautiful vow renewal wasn't enough, just check out the gang's hijinks picking out rugs (above). If rolling around and hiding in a furniture store isn't true friendship, we don't know what is. We mean, Jeff did say that Shannon was his favorite Housewife! We caught up with Shannon to gives us all the adorable deets about this Bravo match made in heaven. 

How to Watch

Catch up on Flipping Out on the Bravo App.

Apparently, these two fated friends -- and we mean fated, they share the same birthday -- were brought together by a fellow #RHOC 'Wife. In Shannon's words, "I met Jeff Lewis through Tamra Judge. We met in the afternoon for cocktails in Laguna Beach and never ate dinner. That was a recipe for a first crazy night." Oh we can only imagine the trouble a Beador-Lewis pairing makes. Shannon says she immediately felt at ease with our Flipping Out crew, "I think it was friendship at first site. We are similar in a lot of ways. I feel the same way about Jenni and Gage. It was an instant connection for me to all of them and we all have a close friendship today."

And if that wasn't enough she gaves us some memorable moments of her friendship with JLD that are giving us major #squadgoals. "I have a lot of favorite memories with Jeff and all of them include a lot of laughing. Getting driven to a bar with him and he and I sitting in the trunk and having photographers take pictures of our exit with my Spanx showing. Jeff going through my Christmas cards after a few cocktails giving me his comments on the photos. I could go on and on..."

Oh we wish she did! Just check out these shots below and try not to get too jealous imagining sipping on some martinis with this squad.


B-day twins!
