Shannon Beador has been open about the distance she feels from her husband David after they renewed their vows last season on the RHOC. During this wee’s episode, the tension became more clear during a family dinner.
“There’s clearly a disconnect happening between David and I,” Shannon told viewers. “I want that husband that looked at me with adoring eyes. I want him back!”
Earlier in the episode, Shannon spoke with her mother Pat about her marital issues and forty pound weight gain.
“With all the weight gain, I don’t know how it happened,” Shannon emotionally said. “I feel so… I mean, I don’t want to cry, but I just feel so sh*tty about myself. When I look in the mirror, I don’t even recognize myself, and I know that David is just disgusted with the whole thing. … I don’t like what I see, at least I can justify in my head. ‘This is why David is growing apart from you, because look at you.’ ”
“Ever since our vow renewal, David keeps taking steps back from me,’ Shannon continued. “And now, as I’ve let myself go, I know that we just kind of stay clear of each other. A couple of weeks ago, he said ‘Our marriage isn’t doing well.’”
