For anyone that hoped the Beador separation would lead to a reconciliation, we have some bad news for you.
Shannon Beador has officially filed for divorce from her husband David, after 17 years of marriage.
The two have had their share of ups and downs which fans of the OC saw on a regular basis. In the few years that Shannon has been on the show, we saw the affair, the vowel renewal and most recently Shannon’s weight gain which impacted her marriage (she had claimed that David had no desire to have sex with her.)
After all of the ups and downs, reports are saying that Shannon has officially filed for divorce in the O.C. Superior Court on Friday, December 1, more than one month after announcing their split.
At the time of their initial separation, Shannon released the following statement:
“After much thought and careful consideration, David and I have made the difficult decision to separate. We remain partners in parenthood and are committed to raising our three daughters. This is not the future we envisioned, and we kindly ask for privacy, especially for our children, during this transitional time.”
The two share three daughters together: Sophie, 15, and twins Stella and Adeline, 12.
Although Shannon had stated that this is not where she wants to be, many think this divorce is for the best. An insider close to Shannon spoke out to E! News stating that:
“This has been a miserable marriage for Shannon for a very long time. David wanted out. Shannon couldn’t take it any longer and has decided that this is best for the kids and her health.”
I will say as a viewer their marriage was painful to watch. I think Shannon did everything she could to keep her family together; however it was clear that David had a wandering eye and was checked out of their marriage. I think that Shannon should take this time to find herself and be the best version of ‘Shannon’ that she can be. I’d love to see a single, successful (and happy) Shannon next season on RHOC.
Thoughts on Shannon and David’s divorce? Did you hope that the two would work it out?
