Yesterday we recapped the OC reunion (for original story click here) and now we’re dealing with the fallout from the drama.
During the reunion, Shannon didn’t hold back on David’s behavior and how it affected her current mental state. To viewers, it appeared that she had PTSD from her marriage, as certain words and memories drove her to a hysterical state (we all remember Jamaica after all.) To the surprise of no one, David’s new girlfriend took to social media to defend her man (something that she has done in the past as well.)
According to Radar, David’s girlfriend Lesley defended her beau via Instagram stating:
“I hate to go here but I am. My kids and I have been shown nothing but love from David for almost a year. The man is crazy, kind and loving!”
“He works his a** off and does everything he can to provide and take care of EVERYONE in his family. He doesn’t deserve to be bashed on national TV over and over again. There are two sides to every story.”
“Every single one of us deserves peace and happiness in this very short life. Time to put our [egos] aside and move forward for everyone.”
While I have no doubt that David is lovely to his current girlfriend that doesn’t mean he was a good husband to Shannon. One year in a relationship is very different than a 17-year marriage. We all saw their tumultuous relationship and I have no doubt that Shannon was telling the truth when she spoke out during the reunion.
