A day after photos came out showing David Beador already has a new girlfriend just months following his split from Shannon Beador, a new report is now revealing how Shannon feels about her ex’s new relationship.
If you recall, the Real Housewives of Orange County couple split up back in October following 19 years of marriage and a well publicized affair that David had a few years ago. Shannon, 53, is now said to be feeling devastated and confused over the news that David, 53, is dating 34-yr-old Lesley Cook.
“Shannon has known about Lesley for a couple of months now and of course she’s devastated,” a friend of Shannon’s told Radar Online. “She is hurt, confused and extremely stressed out over the fact that her fans now know how easily David replaced her.”
Poor Shannon. She is also reportedly hurt over the fact that David looks very happy with Lesley, much happier than he ever looked with her in recent years.
“On top of that, Shannon sees how Lesley puts a smile on David’s face, which is something she could not do for a very long time,” added the insider.
For the time being, Shannon is focused on her kids and filming the upcoming season of the RHOC without David. It was reported last week that she wanted Bravo to fire David as she does not want him filming anymore.
So will RHOC viewers get to see this story-line play out on the show… without David? That answer is yes. “Shannon is not going to hold back and she is going to let her feelings be known about this and everything else,” the insider added.
Meanwhile David’s new beau Lesley is speaking out a day after her identity was unveiled. The single mother of two shared a post on her Instagram asking people not to judge her…or talk about the RHOC on her page.
Lesley wrote, “This is not a forum to talk about RHOC. With all the hate in the world and violence… let’s inspire one another to live happy & healthy lives. We only get this one chance. Everyone deserve to be happy & find peace…. All rude comments will be blocked. -Lesley ✨?✨ #teachpeace #nodrama #worryaboutyourself #weallbleedred #highschoolwasalongtimeago? #youthinkyouknowstrangers?”.
That post is below. In Leslie’s defense, she was never David’s mistress and only started dating him after his split from Shannon.
