Shannon Storms Beador Shares a "Good" Update

The mom of three, whose daughters are all currently in college, talked about some recent ups and downs during the panel.

“It’s been a tough six weeks," she said when moderator Danny Pellegrino asked for an update. "I believe that today I’m in a good and positive [place] — going in a good and positive direction, so thank you... and thank you all for the support."

Back in October, Shannon took to Instagram to share a message.

"I know it's been a while since I posted, and there's been a lot of talk about what happened recently," she began. "But unfortunately right now, I'm not in the position to comment."

She added, "But there will be a time when I can, and I intend to be open, honest, and authentic."

Shannon noted that, in the meantime, she was "focusing on getting healthy, getting back to myself, and walking Archie," her dog.
