Following a volatile past couple of weeks for the Real Housewives of Orange County exes Shannon Beador and David Beador amid their ugly divorce, a new report is shedding more light on the former couple’s plans to try to get along for the sake of their three children, while also revealing how their daughters feel about David’s new girlfriend Lesley Cook.
After recent court filings in which David asked the courts to ban Shannon from drinking around their kids, and Shannon’s fiery response in which she accused him of trying to control and humiliate her, a report now claims Shannon and David have agreed to put their differences aside for the holidays.
“They are both doing their best to keep the girls out of this mess,” a source told Radar Online on December 28.
Prior to the holidays, Shannon and David were reportedly at odds over who would get their three daughters, 17-year-old Sophia, and 14-year-old Stella and Adeline, on Christmas Day. Then, after reportedly calling their truce, they decided the kids would be with Shannon on Christmas Eve and with their father on Christmas Day. They also agreed to quit bad-mouthing one another in front of the girls.
“When they are with their father, they are not allowed to even bring up their mother. It is a forbidden topic,” the source continued. “Same goes for Shannon. When she is with the girls and filming with the girls, she does not talk about their dad or badmouth him because she realized it just isn’t fair, or worth it.”
“The girls really like Lesley, and they like seeing their dad happy. He is happy and in love and she is good to him and a good mother to her kids,” the insider explained.
Shannon and David will return to court next month to discuss their ongoing divorce and custody battle.
