How to Watch

The Real Housewives of Orange County cast member is saying goodbye for now to her two youngest daughters, Adeline and Stella Beador (whom she shares with her ex-husband, David Beador), as they set off to begin their college journeys. 

The mom of three shared an “emotional” tribute about her twins’ special bond on Instagram. Keep scrolling to read what Shannon posted and to learn more about Stella and Adeline’s paths to college. 

Shannon Storms Beador’s twins head off to college

On August 17, Shannon took to her Instagram feed to share that she was preparing to travel to the East Coast with Adeline to drop her off at school. Because Shannon’s daughters are attending different colleges (more on that below), they will not see each other until the end of their first semester. 

“Today is a very emotional day,” Shannon captioned her post, which featured a video of her twins hugging each other and a photo of Adeline embracing the family’s dog, Archie. In an Instagram Story she posted on her own page, Adeline noted that her “hardest goodbye” was the one she said to Archie.

“I am headed to NYC with Adeline to take her to school,” Shannon continued in her post. “The twins will not see each other until Christmas break and are going to miss each other beyond! Their bond is so precious!”

The RHOC cast member then opened up about the bittersweet nature of sending her youngest girls off to school.

“I am so excited to watch my girls move on to the next chapter of their lives but I am definitely going to be shedding a lot of tears in the next week!” she continued.

Where are Shannon Storms Beador’s twins going to college?

Back in May, Shannon confirmed on Instagram that her daughters had officially selected their colleges.

Stella will be attending Shannon’s alma mater, the University of Southern California. For her first year, Stella won’t be on the university’s main campus, as she’ll be part of the USC Trojan Transfer program. Instead, Stella will do her freshman year in Paris, France.

Adeline will also be far from Orange County for her first year. She is enrolling in Parsons School of Design in New York City.

The twins’ senior year and their college application journeys have been highlighted on RHOC Season 17. See more from Shannon and her daughters (including her eldest, Sophie Beador) by tuning in to Bravo on Wednesdays at 8/7c or by streaming the show on Peacock.
