Shannon Beador and David Beador have reportedly finalized their divorce after nearly two decades of marriage and two-plus years of separation. The Real Housewives of Orange County couple first announced their split at the RHOC Season 12 reunion in October 2017. She officially filed for divorce in December 2017, and according to PEOPLE and Hollywood Life, finalized their divorce this week.
After it all happened, Shannon headed out on Wednesday night (April 24) to the Quiet Woman, sharing that she had "a tough day that ended in celebration and I ran into this friend [Gina Kirschenheiter]. #goodday #lovemyfriends."
Together Shannon and David have three teen daughters, Sophie, Stella, and Adeline.
“It’s crazy to think what you can accomplish in a year. I’ve learned a lot. To say in one year, I’m going to lose nearly all my weight, launch a business that so far is doing well, move on from a marriage, and strengthen friendships and established new ones? That’s a tall order! But I’ve gotten here one step at a time," The Real Housewives of Orange County mom shared with the publication at that time. “I’ve gotten stronger, deep down. Part of what I did after I separated with David — while staying home, not going out, and not doing much of anything — was I tried to self-reflect and figure out the changes I wanted to make in myself. What kind of person do I want to be?”
She continued: “There are so many people out there who go through so much worse times than me. I’ve got it good. Fans will say to me from time to time that I inspire them but I don’t look at it that way. I’m willing and open to letting people in, and showing people all the difficulty that I’m going through — which isn’t easy, because people judge and criticize. But there are people going through way worse things. I’m inspired by so many other women that are standing on their own. It’s hard out there. And they encourage me.”
