Shannon Beador was asked about her former husband, David Beador, who recently made headlines for a number of racy images shared to his girlfriend Lesley Cook‘s Instagram page, during “The Juice Is Worth the Squeeze” panel at BravoCon on Sunday.
While attending the sold-out event, the Real Housewives of Orange County star revealed how her daughters learned of the photographs before speaking about her relationship with boyfriend John Janssen, who she went public with in July, and revealing if she’s ever met Lesley.
“The nude hiking photos are something you would never see me in,” Shannon told host Amy Phillips, according to a report from The Daily Dish. “Personally, I think it’s trashy, but to each his own. David can do whatever he wants.”
Although Shannon didn’t care much about the photos of David in his birthday suit with Lesley, it likely didn’t come as good news when she discovered the three daughters she and David share, Stella, Sophie, and Adeline, had come across the shocking images.
“My kids saw [the photos] at school first,” she explained.
“There’s a lot of anger still, and I don’t know why. I tried to introduce him to John and he walked away,” she recalled, adding that she “can’t force [David] to do anything.”
According to Shannon, appearing on RHOC impacted the timing of her split from David.
“I would have been divorced earlier,” Shannon admitted, according to PEOPLE. “Being on the show gave me more motivation to stay together. Maybe when I found out about the affair, I would have gone. I don’t know.”
Despite the ongoing drama she’s been facing with David, Shannon couldn’t be happier with John just four months into their relationship.
“He’s just a great person,” Shannon said. “If I were to make a list of the perfect person for me, he has all those attributes. You see it in movies and you think it’s not real. I’ve never been happier.”
As for whether or not she has met Lesley, Shannon confirmed during the panel that David has not yet introduced them.
“No, I haven’t actually, which is strange,” she said.
The Real Housewives of Orange County season 14 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
