Shannon Beador is suing Facebook and Instagram after third-party companies used her name and likeness to sell diet pills.
According to documents obtained by TMZ, the Real Housewives of Orange County star claims that at least 15 different companies have used her before and after photos to promote weight loss meds on the social media platforms.
She is suing for an undisclosed amount of money. She also reportedly wants a ” judicial order stating the companies won’t wrongfully use her name and likeness to hawk their goods again.”
The OC Housewife has been very public about her struggle with her weight. Over the years, fans have watched Shannon gain and lose weight amid her marital woes with ex-husband David Beador.
Since splitting from David, Shannon has shed 40 pounds through diet and exercise.
“I’ve had an internal roller coaster of a weight issue,” she told Page Six in 2018. “I’d lose a bunch of weight and then I’d say, ‘OK, now I’m going to eat what I want because I’m tired of starving myself.’ I don’t want to deprive myself anymore.”
RHOC is expected to return for season 16 in late 2021 or early 2022.
