After a very difficult time on the most recent season of Real Housewives of Orange County and a divorce announcement, the latest updates on Shannon Beador show she's been busy living her best life. After Season 12, it seems like things are finally coming together for Shannon. She just looks so much happier these days and definitely has a glow going.
After Shannon owned up to and apologized for everything that went down with her cast members this season at the reunion, it became so easy to root for her again. Just like any other person on this show (and in real life), Shannon has had her fair shares of ups and downs, but it feels like she got a fresh start recently.
Shannon made up with Vicki Gunvalson at the reunion. She is on great terms with her longtime foe Kelly Dodd. She is killing it these days as a mother, friend, single lady, and even an entrepreneur. The world is her oyster. It will be interesting to see how much progress Shannon makes when the next RHOC season airs, but in the meantime, she has shared a lot of great news on social media.
She Is Working On Something With QVC
Shannon is one of the few Housewives who has not put her name on a million product lines to capitalize on her reality TV exposure, so the fact that she teased a project with QVC is very interesting. It is safe to assume that Shannon has fielded a lot of business opportunities over the years, just like her Real Housewives peers, so what did she decide to sell? She hasn't revealed anything yet, but she did post on Instagram, "Exciting things brewing! Stay tuned!"
She Officially Filed For Divorce
Shannon and David Beador announced their separation on October 27 in an exclusive with People after she shared the news with her RHOC costars during the reunion taping. Now, things are officially official since People reported that Shannon filed for divorce from David in early December.
She's Enjoying Her New Home
Now that Shannon is living on her own, she's making her house a home with some festive Christmas decorations. In an Instagram post, Shannon admits, "Don’t have as much room in the new house, so I put as many Christmas decorations as I could in the bookshelves! " That's the way to do it, Shannon! She is adapting to changes — big and small — and it's a very good thing.
She Got Her First Christmas Tree On Her Own
Shannon was hands on looking for the first Christmas tree for her new home, and she even got it all on her own.
She Is Co-Parenting With David
Even though Shannon is a single lady, she is still doing her best to be on good terms with David for the sake of their three daughters. Since their separation announcement, the former couple has shared photos of themselves enjoying USC games as a family.
She's Working Out
Shannon was opened about her weight gain on the most recent season of RHOC and explained that it was brought on by stress. In November, she told People that she lost 25 pounds. She added, "I have 15 more to go." She really does seem to be enjoying herself and feeling more comfortable in her skin these days.
She's Spending A Lot Of Time With Her Girls
Following Shannon on social media, it is clear that she is the biggest fan at all of her kids' events. She's posted about homecoming , basketball games, and even basketball-induced doctors appointments after her daughter got injured. Shannon has continued being a very hands-on mom and she even had some nice girls only time with her daughters and mother recently.
It's only the beginning, but divorce looks good on Shannon Beador. She is happy, healthy, and thriving.
