Shannon Beador Talks “Devastating” Affair, Why She Returned to RHOC


It's been a difficult ride for Shannon Beador who tearfully revealed during the Season 10 premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County that her husband of 14 years had cheated on her.


We were shocked to learn that this seemingly happy couple had not only experienced, but made it through infidelity. Even though David Beador had completely violated his wife's trust, Shannon chose to forgive him and work on repairing their marriage.


“After I found out about the infidelity, we had some bumps back and forth and we finally ended up at a place called Couples Retreat,” Shannon told Us Weekly. “They have a 90 percent success rate with repairing marriages and we went through the process and it was eye-opening for the both of us and we received some tools that would help us repair our marriage.” 


Shannon found out about David's affair, which she calls "devastating," back in April 2014 before filming for Season 10 began. She and her husband debated on returning to the show and broadcasting their problem, but ultimately, they wanted to portray themselves realistically, according to Shannon.


“It was a difficult decision coming back to the show because it’s a reality show and we are both honest so we knew we had to address the infidelity as part of what was going on in our lives,” she said. “What’s important to both of us, as corny as it might sound, is we want to give other couples hope that even if there is infidelity, or something devastating in a relationship, if you both work and make the effort and love each other, you can get out."


David added that the two go out to dinner after church every week together. After leaving their home for two weeks, he came clean to Shannon about his indiscretions.
