Shannon Beador’s mugshot from her recent DUI arrest won’t be made public for Real Housewives of Orange County fans – Find out why!
It seems that every five minutes, new details emerge about Shannon Beador‘s arrest for DUI and hit-and-run.
While many Bravo fans are desperately waiting to see Shannon Beador’s mugshot, we now learn that the Bravoverse won’t be getting a peek at Shannon’s arrest photo.
Shannon Beador’s arrest record is public information, but it turns out the same can’t be said for her mugshot. When Page Six attempted to obtain Shannon’s mugshot, they were shut down by the Newport Beach PD because the case was still an active investigation.
In their denial, NBPD cited a government code that claims releasing Shannon Beador’s mugshot would “endanger the successful completion of the investigation or a related investigation.”
Page Six‘s request for the 911 call and dash-cam footage was also denied as police are “not required to disclose” such information.
These are the very same reasons why the Bravoverse never saw Gina Kirschenheiter‘s mugshot from her 2019 arrest for DUI.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reports that Shannon Beador plans to “enter rehab” after her “wake-up call” DUI arrest.
“Shannon plans to enter rehab after her DUI arrest was a huge “wake-up call” for her,” an inside source revealed.
“Shannon has spent the past several years running from her problems, and she does not realize who she has turned into. Her cast mates and her friends have told her that she needs to get help, and this was before the DUI.”
The source added that Shannon has “not fully decided on if she will do in-patient treatment or out-patient, as she has a family to care for, a dog who needs her, and her work projects.”
The RHOC insider also points out that Shannon’s arrest for DUI comes just weeks after she trashed co-star Gina Kirscheniter for her own 2019 DUI on the show.
“Shannon trashed Gina for her DUI on the show, and her words are coming back to bite her in the a** now,” the insider revealed.
As Bravo fans know, Gina recently said on RHOC that Shannon needs rehab for her drinking. This declaration came after Shannon claimed Gina almost got her kids taken away by CPS following her DUI.
“Shannon says s***, and then she wants to pretend she didn’t do it,” Gina said in her confessional. “And if you can say things that are that f***ing hurtful and not even remember you said it, you need to go f***ing check yourself into rehab. And then when you do and you get to the f***ing I’m sorry step, and I’ll be waiting for that apology.”
“Gina is taking the high road and is not going to do the same thing to Shannon that she did to her. Her silence speaks volumes about how far she’s come since her own DUI,” the insider added about Gina keeping her lips zipped about Shannon’s arrest.
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
