The status of Shannon Beador‘s relationship with her ex, John, is the talk of the town. Now, Emily Simpson has a theory on their relationship.
Throughout season 17 of the Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon Beador’s relationship with John Janssen has been a hot topic, with many of the OC Housewives voicing their concerns over the issues in Shannon and John’s three-year relationship.
While Heather Dubrow took most of the heat for the chatter about Shannon and John’s relationship, most, if not all, of the RHOC cast openly talked about the problems facing Shannon and John.
Shannon Beador and John Janssen split in late November after three and a half years of dating. The breakup came just a week after production wrapped on season 17 of RHOC. In January, Shannon told PEOPLE that she “was blindsided by the breakup.”
“All I can do is repeat in my head what he said to me while we were filming,” Shannon Beador shared at the time. “We were in a great place. But seven days later, when the cameras were down, it was a completely different story. He told me he was done with the relationship. And to hear what he said to me then was absolutely devastating.”
“I’ve never loved anyone more in my life,” she adds of John. “I was hopeful this was the man I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I wanted it to work out. I’ve never loved anyone like I’ve loved John. But clearly, he didn’t feel the same way.”
Since splitting, Shannon and John spent several away from each other before reconnecting in April as friends. Shannon and John grabbed dinner with RHOC co-stars Tamra Judge and Jennifer Pedranti at TAO in Los Angeles with their respective partners, Eddie Judge and Ryan Boyajian.
Shannon shared a photo of the night out on Instagram and made sure to add the hashtag “#wearenotbacktogther.”
Over the last few months, Shannon and John have been spotted out together all over Orange County, leaving Bravo fans dying to know the status of their relationship.
While Shannon insists that she and John are just friends, Shannon’s RHOC co-star Emily Simspon has a different theory.
During the appearance, the two played a game of “Truth or Emily Eats a Cucumber.”
Andy Cohen asked Emily: “What do you think was the biggest red flag in Shannon and John’s relationship?” She replied, “Oh, my God. There are so many. I mean, they break up all the time.”
Gina added: “The fact that they’re not together.”
Emily then interjected, “No, but I think they are together,” to which a confused Gina asked: “Oh, they are today?”
“I think so,” Emily said.
This piqued Andy’s interest, who began to pepper Emily.
“Oh really? And they’re pretending to not be together so they don’t get any heat?” he asked.
The 47-year-old replied, “I don’t know. Maybe. I’m going to eat some more cucumber.”
