Adultery is a CRAPPY thing to experience. I speak from the same side of the issue as RHOC’s Shannon Beador. I respect her for wanting to work on her marriage so she can keep her family together. It’s an admirable choice. I tried to make my relationship work too, but could tell he missed the excitement of his affair.If your husband is just going through the motions and is no longer in to you it’s time to move on. Staying just prolongs the agony and damages your self-esteem. When I watch Shannon and David on “The Real Housewives of Orange County” I see Shannon becoming unhinged and deeply insecure. As a viewer seeing David visibly attracted to Meghan and paying attention to her, instead of his wife is cringe-worthy! Shannon was quick to deny what was visible to all in her 6/15/15 Bravo Blog.
“To be clear…I am NOT uncomfortable meeting Meghan. I do not think she flirted with my husband. I was upset at the hoedown because David never introduced me. End of story”. -Shannon Beador
Meghan is a gorgeous, 30-ish , tall ,leggy, model- type married to a baseball legend Jim Edmunds. Meghan was filmed during last season’s #RHOC at Heather Dubrow’s ground breaking party. The theme was a Western hoedown. When David saw Meghan at the bar the dazzled dad ordered her a drink and turned his back on Shannon and Vicky.LITERALLY. It was the same episode where a buzzed David famously told Heather to “Spread your legs!” so she could mount a mechanical bull, and caused WWIII with Terry Dubrow. David’s “Love Tank” must be parched……
It is very difficult to relive everything as we watch the show, but I am truly committed to do everything it takes to move forward. I am not going to take two years. It is my hope that someday the memories of this period evoke zero emotion from me. I absolutely forgive David because he has shown true remorse and regret.-Shannon Beador
We can all see the writing on the wall in the OC! Shannon is going to make Meghan her bitch for the rest of the season. Meghan will be the brunt of every Shannon video clip and tearful breakdown. Shannon can’t take her wrath out on David. She’s trying to win back his love and attention in very unattractive ways! Oh No! Meghan is going to get the full-blown “Cuckoo’s Nest” Shannon, who will try to kill her with bad Feng Shui and an ice pick.
Our advice? Shannon needs to embrace Western medicine’s finest-Xanax and Prozac, then make an appointment with Terry Dubrow. If you want to compete with youngsters for your disgusting pig hubby’s affections, you can’t look older than they do. Your biggest act of crazy yet is staying in this marriage Shannon. Learn to love yourself and quit operating from fear. David isn’t worth your love. You will forever be looking over your shoulder waiting for him to cheat again.
