REPORT: Shannon Beador Continues To Drink Following DUI; Turned to Alcohol To Cope With Stress of Filming RHOC S18


Those close to Shannon Beador are reportedly concerned for her wellbeing as she allegedly continues to drink following her September DUI.

Following Shannon Beador‘s DUI and hit and run last September, the Real Housewives of Orange County completed a “28 days of behavioral wellness” counseling program with an alcohol specialist.

However, the Bravo star is reportedly still drinking which has her friends worried that she is not acknowledging her problem with alcohol.

“Even after her recent DUI and outpatient rehab she is still drinking,” an insider told “She isn’t getting wasted and getting behind the wheel, but she still does enjoy a drink.”

“It is ultimately Shannon’s life – but lying to herself and trying to convince herself that her drinking is not a problem after getting a DUI from an accident that could have been way worse is not on.”

The insider then claimed that Shannon Beador’s drinking could be a result of her inability to deal with the pressure of starring on RHOC.

“She sure knows how to stay on air but she doesn’t know how to deal with the pressure of that it seems,” the source stated. “Drinking isn’t the healthy way to handle the stress of being a rich and successful reality star with your own food empire.”

In November 2023, Shannon Beador was sentenced to 3 years probation. This sentence came two months after the RHOC star was arrested for DUI and a hit-and-run on September 16, in Newport Beach, California, after she drove her car into a residential property and “clipped the house.”

Shannon’s blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit, and she blew a .24 percent following the crash.

The RHOC star avoided serving any jail time for her DUI and the judge also dismissed her one count of hit-and-run with property damage. 

The 59-year-old was sentenced to 36 months of informal probation. She also agreed to pay various fines and fees, complete 40 hours of community service, and participate in a 9-month alcohol program.

Shannon Beador has not publicly discussed her DUI but is expected to open up about the ordeal on season 18 of RHOC, which will premiere on Bravo in mid-2024.
