The Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador is opening up about the difficulties in reliving her marital problems. In the recently aired episode of RHOC, Shannon and David’s children learn about the affair that has stricken their family. Shannon has recently shared her thoughts on this moment and the guilt she still carries on.
Shannon writes in her Bravo blog:
It is very difficult to relive everything as we watch the show, but I am truly committed to do everything it takes to move forward. I am not going to take two years. It is my hope that someday the memories of this period evoke zero emotion from me. I absolutely forgive David because he has shown true remorse and regret.
I am spent. Two days of deep and intensive emotional exercises have wiped me out. I look like I have aged 10 years. I am so distraught that our children became aware of the affair because that was never the intent, but it was beyond my control and it happened. We continue to work with our children. You see David ask our children for their forgiveness. The twins are young and really don’t know how to process everything; they want their Daddy and family to be happy. I will never forget the moment when Sophie stood up. To say such an profound comment that she would “forgive, but never forget”, broke my heart. She is such a sweet soul. When I saw the tear trickle down her cheek after her exchange with David, I felt so guilty that some of her childhood innocence had been taken away from her. I still do.
Shannon also took the time to clear up her feelings about Meghan King Edmonds, who briefly appeared last season in the episode showcasing Heather Dubrow’s hoedown. Shannon assures:
To be clear…I am NOT uncomfortable meeting Meghan I do not think she flirted with my husband. I was upset at the hoedown because David never introduced me. End of story.
There you have it. Thoughts on what Shannon had to say??
