A new chapter has officially begun for Shannon Beador, as we saw during Monday night's Season 13 premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County. This season picks up following Shannon's shocking announcement at the Season 12 reunion that she and husband David Beador had decided to separate after 17 years of marriage.
While in the midst of her divorce proceedings, Shannon dealt with David moving on and going public with his new girlfriend. "It's understandable that at some point he's gonna move on, but to know that I'm so easily replaceable within a couple months ... and it hurt, and I cried a lot," Shannon opened up to Vicki Gunvalson in the RHOC Season 13 premiere.
Shannon confirmed that David is still with his girlfriend today during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Monday night (clip above). Though Shannon said she has not met David's girlfriend, their daughters Sophie, 17, Stella, 14, and Adeline, 14, have. "They're OK with her," she said. "Sophie's meeting her tomorrow night for the first time."
Shannon recently gave an update on how her family is doing as she and David go through the process of ending their marriage during an interview with The Daily Dish. "My relationship with David today is no bueno. It is not good. Hopefully when we settle everything there will be more of a friendliness," Shannon said. "But my kids are doing well, as well as can be expected. We're trying to co-parent. They're spending a lot of time with their dad. We're trying to do it 50/50, and I want him to be a part of their lives."
The RHOC mom took a major step in moving on in the Season 13 premiere. Check out the empowering moment, below.
