Meet the New Shannon Storms Beador

Shannon Storms Beador is looking toward the future after finalizing her divorce from David Beador earlier this year.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

Just as Shannon has shared the ups and downs of her relationship with David with fans of The Real Housewives of Orange County over the years, viewers can expect to see her close this chapter of her life this season. "I guess it's great," Shannon said of how it feels to finalize her divorce from David during an interview with The Daily Dish in New York City on Tuesday, August 6. "Check, move on. Move on to the next thing."

Shannon said that she and David have been amicable as they continue to raise their daughters, Sophie, 18, Stella, 15, and Adeline, 15. "We're still in each other's lives as co-parents, but pretty much we've divided everything," she shared. "We're just together because of the kids, so that's good."

RHOC fans will see a lot of changes to Shannon's life as Season 14 continues Tuesdays at 9/8c as she embraces a lighter, brighter, and more fun attitude overall, which you can see in the clip, above. "This season is a new version of the old fun Shannon, more fun," Shannon said, admitting that she had been a bit of "a downer" in recent seasons. "I'm the most fun Shannon of all six seasons now."

That's one reason why Shannon isn't expecting Season 14 of RHOC to be cringeworthy — well, as cringeworthy, that is. "I've shown a lot on camera. I've been through a marriage that didn't work out, an affair, a divorce, gaining 40 pounds and taking my shirt off. Those were hard things, especially, to relive and watch again on the show," she said. "But this season, yeah, I'm involved in little bits of drama here and there, but this season I might be a little bit excited to watch it because I know that I had fun. I know that I laughed the entire time that we were filming. So, I'm hopeful that that comes across."
