How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Bravo Thursday, July 11 at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

The Real Housewives of Orange County cast member took to Instagram on Monday, April 10 to share a photo with none other than the mystery man she recently gushed about on Jeff Lewis Live. "Someone flew in a for a visit..." Shannon captioned the pair of pics, which show her posing alongside her beau as well as her three daughters — 18-year-old twins Stella and Adeline and 21-year-old Sophie — and Sophie's boyfriend, Reese

As for where Shannon's new man is "visiting," she and her family are currently on vacation in Mexico. She previously mentioned that he'd be joining them for "part of" the trip during her aforementioned appearance on Jeff's show. There, Shannon also revealed how the two met in the first place: with help from one of her "core four" friends.

Lucky for her, the guy turned out to be "very handsome" and "super, super sweet." Not only that, but he’s also “super fit,” Shannon added, “and that’s a good influence for me.”

Jeff, who's close friends with Shannon, appeared to give his approval as well, noting, "I liked him a lot."

As RHOC fans are surely aware, the relationship is Shannon's first since her split from John Janssen. The two broke up at the end of 2022, although it wasn’t until this past January that she confirmed the news. At the time, she said she was “blindsided” by John’s decision to end the relationship, especially considering that they were seemingly “in a great place.”

What’s more, John had apparently told Shannon he was ready to take their relationship to “the next level.” 

“I got teary-eyed with the words that he was saying and I thought, ‘God, we are gonna get there,’” Shannon said in January. “I just thought whatever the next step is, we’re gonna take it. I remember tearing up and I remember saying very kind things to him.”

However, less than a week later, in the final days of November, John told Shannon he was “done with the relationship,” she recalled, adding that despite their abrupt split, “I have never loved anyone close to as much as I loved John, [and] I wanted everything for the entire time to work out.”

John, for his part, told People that the breakup was a “super hard” decision for him to make. 

“The last thing I wanted to do is hurt Shannon, but I do think I did the right thing for the both of us,” John added in part. “We’re two people who love each other very much, but love is not always enough. And while I know Shannon sees it as I’ve said things to her I never meant, I hope she’ll be able to see that there’s no bad person here. It’s two really good people who couldn’t make it work.”

Here's to Shannon and her new person!
