The Real Housewives of Orange County star reveals that when she attempted to introduce David to her new boyfriend John Janssen, he “walked away.”
“They’ve seen each other, but David isn’t interested. I tried to introduce them, but he walked away. David walked away,” Shannon told Us Weekly on Thursday, October 10. “I should have expected it.”
It’s been nearly two years since the former RHOC couple ended their 17-year marriage.
The exes finalized their divorce in April and share daughters Sophie, 18, and 15-year-old twins Stella and Adeline.
David has since moved on with girlfriend Lesley Cook while Shannon and John debuted their romance this summer.
Shannon revealed in August that she’s “never been happier” and that she met her new man thru mutual friends.
“My friends have known him for 30 years, so I didn’t have to make sure he was there for the right reasons. … He’s just a great person. I have a great connection with him,” she explained at the time. “I’m very much in love.”
The RHOC star added that her relationship John is a true “partnership,” which is something her marriage to David severely lacked.
”I’m 55 years old. I haven’t wanted to rush into anything. I’ve got one shot left if I want to be realistic,” she admitted in August about potentially walking down the aisle again. “I want to be certain this time that everything is gonna be good.”
In her most recent interview, Shannon reiterated that statement while admitting that she hopes to have a husband again one day soon.
“I definitely want to be married,” she told Us Weekly. “I want to share my life with someone and have that partner and grow old with someone. I’m looking forward to that.”
However, she and John are taking things one step at a time.
“We make plans way into the future, so that’s a good thing,” she said. “We spent a lot of time together, but he’s not moving in. We’re still new…But we’re so comfortable together, it’s weird. I feel like I’ve known him for the longest time.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County air Tuesdays at 9 pm EST on Bravo.
