Back in September, David Beador was seeking joint physical and legal custody of his and Lesley’s 2-year-old daughter, Anna Love. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum also made it clear that he did not want to pay spousal support as agreed to in their prenup.
A month later, David asked for the divorce petition to be dismissed.

This news comes just days after David reunited with his ex-wife Shannon Beador.
The former Bravo couple ran into each other at The Quiet Woman, a restaurant in Corona Del Mar, CA. David and Shannon posed for a photo together. Shannon then uploaded the image to Instagram, which caused a major uproar in the Bravoverse.
