RHOC star Shannon Beador enrolls in an outpatient program following her DUI arrest in September. Get all the details on Shannon’s treatment plan!
Shannon Beador has decided to seek treatment following her arrest for DUI and hit-and-run on Saturday, September 16, in Newport Beach, California.
However, the show also must go on in Shannon’s professional life, which is why the 59-year-old has decided to enter outpatient treatment as opposed to entering an inpatient facility. The RHOC star’s treatment program won’t get in the way of her continuing to tour with her BFFs Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson for their Tres Amigas tour.
Per TMZ, Shannon entered into an outpatient treatment program on Monday, October 9. The behavioral wellness program that the RHOC star has enrolled in features an alcohol component.
As for how Shannon plans to participate in the Tres Amigas show, which normally involves alcohol, including shots of tequila, sources say that the three Bravolebs have decided to shift the focus of the show away from booze and on to their friendship.
Shannon also won’t be drinking at the upcoming tour dates, which includes a show in Phoenix, Arizona, on November 16, at Stand Up Live.
As AllAboutTRH previously reported, Shannon was arrested for DUI and a hit-and-run on Saturday, September 16, in Newport Beach, California, after she drove her car into a residential property and “clipped the house.”
On Monday, September 18th, the news of Shannon’s arrest and DUI incident broke in the press and shocked the Bravoverse.
The reality star’s attorney, Mike Fell, quickly released a statement noting how expressing how “apologetic and remorseful” Shannon was over her actions.
