Weeks after announcing her separation on the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, Shannon officially filed for divorce from David, husband of 17 years, on December 1st. And now those divorce documents have been uncovered as Shannon is requesting spousal support from David.
Due to this request, she had to list her monthly expenses and the couple’s individual incomes which shows that Shannon spends double of what she earns each month!
The Blast uncovered the court documents in which Shannon states David, who owns a construction company, earns $179,432 a month before taxes. Wowzers!
As for Shannon, she reveals she earned $22,000 a month in 2016, but states she expects to see an increase in her 2017 earnings.
The $22K a month seems like a lot of money for the average person, but Shannon is far from average! Her expenses reveal she spends an astonishing $55,353 a month.
Below is a breakdown of her monthly spending –
- $12,000 for rent
- $10,060 for laundry and cleaning
- $10,000 for “entertainment, gifts, and vacation”
- $9,000 for charity
- $3,225 for childcare
- $2,500 for clothes
Yes, $10,060 for laundry and cleaning.
Just like that I feel slightly better about the $140 I spend each month on cleaning services!
In addition to spousal support, Shannon, 53, is also asking the courts to award her “primary physical custody” of couple’s three daughters together.
The good news is that she is okay with David having joint legal custody and visitation. Good to see that there won’t be any wars at least when it comes to custody issues. Better for the kids that way.
