The Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador continues to share the high’s and low’s of her marriage on screen. On the road to recovery from infidelity, Shannon and husband face bumps in the road. On the recently aired episode, Shannon and David Beador participate in a couple’s game night that does not go well for the couple.
Shannon has taken to her bravo blog to discuss the game night and how both she and David struggle with facing their marital problems. Shannon writes:
I was frustrated at game night. David and I have been doing well for the most part and he has frequently said to me that he never thought that we could be as close and romantically connected as we have been. I have repeated this to all the girls. When he answered the question that he was “less romantic,” I was hurt and embarrassed. It looked like I wasn’t telling the truth. David said he heard the question wrong. You all are seeing the real deal with what is happening between us, for better or worse. I clearly got upset and then I wish you could have seen us resolve everything 30 seconds later.
You get to see a glimpse of our interaction with Tina Konkin from the Couples Retreat in this episode. Almost two months have passed since our Couples Retreat. I individually keep in touch with Tina and her counterpart Margaret every week to help process through everything. I beat myself up often that I am not getting over everything more quickly, but it is nice to hear Tina’s reminder that it can sometimes take up to two years to get through infidelity. In that case, I am doing well.
David is a guy’s guy. He doesn’t love having long conversations analyzing our relationship, especially after infidelity. I understand that. There are times that both David or I “check out.” That is reality. It’s only normal to want to take the easy way out and avoid the work. But we both end up going back and realizing why we our doing all of this — to repair our marriage and our family. I am frustrated in our meeting that David does not want to do any individual therapy on his own. This was a tough moment for me. I need to know that we are both making an effort to repair our marriage. With the help of Tina and her team, that is happening today and it has put us on the fast track of healing.
