Shannon Beador The Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC

Fighting Back! David Beador Accuses Shannon of Excessive Drinking & Lying About Her Salary!

If you thought it was ugly when David went public with his girlfriend – you haven’t seen anything yet.

Shannon and David Beador have been going through a very public split, and so far it seems that Shannon has been taking the high road. Shannon has seemed to focus on her girls while David seems to be constantly traveling and parading his love for his new girlfriend over social media. It sounds like things are just as bad inside the court room as details of their divorce and David’s allegations have recently been made public.

According to court documents David is challenging everything from custody agreements to how much Shannon earns on RHOC. In a court document David states:

“I am requesting the Court enter an order providing for joint legal custody and award me 50 percent physical custody of the children. Such orders would serve the children’s best interests. While the children (Stella and Adeline) have resided with Shannon, since separation, the children, on several occasions have refused to talk or see me. This behavior has been tolerated in Shannon’s home and is not in the best interests of the children. I have requested they spend nights with me however they have expressed concerns for their mother in this event.”

Ironically it’s Shannon’s friend Tamra that has accused her ex of parent alienation, something it seems that David is hinting at as he further states:

“Shannon is not fostering or encouraging a healthy father child relationship. Moreover, Shannon’s employment encourages excess drinking and extended travel to which Shannon has chosen not to inform me and make accommodations for the kids to stay with me while she is away.”

We recently reported that Shannon earns around $420,000.00 being on RHOC (for original story click here) however David is even questioning this, alleging that Shannon earns even more than that:

“Shannon earns between $500,00 and $600,00 per year. … She again perjured herself stating I earned ‘five times’ the amount she earns. In fact, my salary is $5,000 per week, $262,000 per year and I take distributions averaging approximately $175,000 per year. My ‘take-home’ pay is thus less than what Shannon makes.”

David did not stop there and went on to further attack Shannon stating:

“I have paid Shannon’s attorneys fees and costs that I am aware of to date as she was not working under her new employment contract. She has now presumably signed that contract and is getting her salary paid monthly. I no longer control her finances. She now has the financial capacity to pay her own attorney fees and whatever forensics the court wishes to be done.”

“the court order Shannon’s estate including future business endeavors and endorsements be valued. My participation and funding of her reality television career allows my right to whatever the Court deems appropriate of the estate value, just as the Court does with my company valuation and rights Shannon has to the amount ascertained to be due her from my business.”

If you thought that was bad, he saved his lowest blow for last, stating:

“Any current filming has not aired so her current popularity is a direct result of my participation in that show.”

WOW! I thought David was a jerk before but this shows a whole other side to him. There are two sides to every story so I don’t know what goes on when cameras are off but these statements seem extremely nasty and below the belt. Shannon seemed to be a great stay at home mom and gave David numerous chances in their marriage. I feel that David’s statements are completely low and unnecessary. I have a feeling we have only seen the beginning on this so stay tuned as we will keep you covered. Hopefully these two can keep in mind this must be very hard for their three girls and I hope they keep their best interest at heart.
