PHOTO: See the Pic of Shannon Beador's Bloodied Face After DUI Crash as RHOC Castmates Question If She Has a Drinking Problem, Plus Shannon Storms Out While FilmingA Real Housewives of Orange County preview showed a bloodied image of Shannon Beador’s face after her DUI crash. In the preview, castmates questioned whether Shannon has a drinking problem, and she stormed out of a confessional interview.

In September of 2023, Shannon reportedly drove under the influence, crashed into someone’s property, and fled the scene. According to PEOPLE, she pleaded no contest and was sentenced to three years probation (as well as community service). The DUI seemingly caused a division in her friendship with Tamra Judge.

In the BravoTV preview for the upcoming season, a reunion flashback showed Shannon clapping back at Gina’s previous claim that she needs rehab.

The trailer then jumped to news of her arrest after the DUI.

“John, he said to me, you’re a drunken idiot,” recalled Shannon of the night leading up to the crash in a scene with Heather Dubrow. “I got in the car, lost control.”

She then showed Heather a photo of her face after the crash. In it, several streaks of blood dropped down from beneath her eye, cascading down her neck.

“Oh my god!” said Heather when she saw the image.

Five months later, Shannon told Emily that she’s “continually working on [herself].”

“I was just making a lot of very, very poor, poor decisions,” she explained.

“Do you drink?” asked Emily.

“I’m like a two-drink max person right now,” she answered.

“Do you ever feel like choosing sobriety is the best thing for you?” Emily responded.

“I don’t do it that often,” said Shannon.

In another scene, Tamra asked if Heather believes Shannon has an “alcohol problem.”

“Yeah, I do,” said Heather.

Gina later claimed that she doesn’t “drink anymore” because Shannon is “20 years ahead of me.”

“And I looked at what that looked like, and I didn’t f**king like that!” she exclaimed while wearing a chef’s hat.

In a group scene, Shannon declared, “Every fricking day that I wake up, I think about what happened.”

“Is that after you have a drink?” asked Tamra.

In a confessional interview, Shannon shared, “I’m done with people saying I’m the drunk that needs help because I am not. I had a really bad night … I want to walk out right now because I’m ruining my makeup. So I got to, I got to get out.”

She then stood up from her chair and walked away.
