Shannon Storms Beador had a run-in that’s just as juicy as the oranges she and her The Real Housewives of Orange County castmates posed with ahead of the upcoming Season 17 premiere.  

Shannon and David’s Reunion

How to Watch

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

Shannon took to Instagram on June 2 to document the occasion, which just so happened to involve her ex-husband, David Beador. Even better, the reunion took place at the infamous restaurant where Shannon not only met David but also once threw a plate during a RHOC dinner gone wrong, The Quiet Woman

Shannon and David flashed big smiles for a selfie, and in the caption, Shannon made a reference to the iconic locale. “You never know who you are going to run into at the [Quiet Woman].” 

She also posted the photo to her Instagram Story, adding the hashtag “it’s been years” with a shrugging emoji.

Naturally, several of Shannon’s friends — and even two of Shannon and David’s daughters, Adeline and Sophie — shared their surprised reactions in the comments. Sophie wrote, “jump scare???” while Adeline simply commented, “what.”

Vicki Gunvalson, meanwhile, acknowledged Adeline and Sophie, as well as Shannon and David’s other daughter, Stella, in her comment. “Awe your girls will be happy,” the OG of the OC wrote.

As for Tamra Judge and Taylor Armstrong, the two appeared to have been with Shannon at The Quiet Woman at one point. “I guess I left too soon,” Tamra wrote, adding a blushing emoji, while Taylor commented, “What a night.”

Shannon and David’s Relationship History

Shannon and David documented many of the ups and downs of their relationship on RHOC, from the fallout from David’s affair to their 2016 vow renewal. However, in December 2017, the two filed for divorce after 17 years of marriage. Shannon shared the difficult news with viewers and her RHOC castmates during the Season 12 reunion

In the years since then, Shannon and David have both moved on to new relationships. Shannon dated John Janssen for three and a half years, and while the pair did break up at the end of 2022, they’re currently in “a place of friendship.” She’s also back in the dating game and recently brought her new beau along on a family trip to Mexico.
