It's "The Real Housewives of Orange County" reunion filming day so it is only appropriate that big news would break! Shannon Beador and husband, David have separated. The duo, who joined the BRAVO show in season 9, experienced a dramatic low when David cheated on Shannon. The two did the best that they could to rebuild, even renewing their vows but it seemed that they could never find a happy place again. This season focused on Shannon's dramatic weight gain of 40 pounds and her struggle to connect with her husband and feel sexy.
Co-star Tamra Judge's husband, Eddie is very close with David as they compete in Spartan races together. The couple have been split for about a month with Shannon saying that: "It's heartbreaking for me and my daughters that this is the road that had to be taken but it's the only way. I felt alone in my marriage. You can do what you can to keep your family together, but you have to have willing parties. You need two people to make a marriage work, and that just wasn't happening in our relationship."
The couple have three daughters, Sophie and twins, Stella and Adeline. We wish them all the best during this difficult time and cannot wait to get the details at the reunion. Catch RHOC every Monday evening at 9p.m.
*This is the second marriage to end this season as co-star Kelly Dodd separated from hubby, Michael.
