Shannon Beador Denies Her Husband David Ever Hit Her


Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador is denying the rumors that Vicki Gunvalson is spreading on the show that Shannon’s husband David has physically abused her in their marriage.

“It is beyond me that someone would make an allegation about someone that is false, that has to do with a criminal act,” Shannon told E! News.

“To put that label on my husband that will affect him, will affect my children… because there will be a percentage of people that will believe Vicki and Kelly and we know our truth, but it’s just hurtful. I just keep thinking about my kids…” Shannon continued.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    I want to be careful what I say here, yesterday’s thread got pretty nasty. As far as I am concerned it was 13 years ago and if they have managed to put it behind them and move on that’s fine. I’m not excusing any man who hits a woman or the other way round as well. But all I think about is the kids, the twins weren’t even alive then even though it was suggested yesterday they would have seen the ‘alleged’ violence. The other one was one, I don’t know about any one else here but I can’t remember what happened when I was one. I am not getting into any arguments with any other commenter about this it’s not worth my time, but I wanted to state how I feel, no one needs to agree with it, I DONT CARE! Rant over!

    • I agree Suze. Psych 101 teaches us that although a traumatic incident can affect a child, we don’t typically have memories that go back further than 2 or 3 years old. I don’t think a 1 year old would have been witness to the fight, but none of us know the real deal. Maybe the kids weren’t affected by the actual incident, but also, maybe it was more important that Shannon didn’t want them to know about it now…Obviously, they will know now. I do agree with another poster that she was crazy to confide in Vicki and Tamera.

      • Suze☕️

        I agree she should never have trusted Vicki and like you I wouldn’t trust Tamra either. I’m obviously not on TV but I’m sure lots of us me included have confided something in someone we thought was a friend. They have then told others! I think that’s why I would never tell anyone something a friend told me in confidence.

          Yes it’s sad any way you look at him . I wonder if back then, David had a drinking problem which resulted in this incident. And yes, yesterday was ugly but we remain lovely ❤️❤️❤️ Don’t we ladies? 🙂

          • Suze☕️

            Yes I wondered about that as well. We are all lovely! Xoxoxoxox

            • LOl…I keep telling myself that but sometimes others at work don’t agree with me. lol.

              • Suze☕️

                I don’t believe that for a minute! Xoxoxo

                • Rain

                  freedomgirl, I’m sure they all love you xoxo but I know that every workplace has at least one or 2 jerks so just ignore those lol

                  • Lol, you are both sweet, but I totally own those days when even I know myself, I’m too much. haha. I agree with both of you on this topic, and like Suze, I despise when housewives rat out deep dark secrets when they are mad at someone. That’s the lowest of the low in my opinion. They must get a bonus based on the severity of the confidences that they are betraying.

                    • Rain

                      I have to say that this is one aspect where men are better than women. Men usually keep secrets even if they’re mad at someone. We women can be petty and sometimes vindictive , so let’s just own that lol . ❤️❤️❤️❤️ I work with grad students a lot of younger people so as much as people rag on millennialist, they tend to be very mellow and easy going and lot less drama than when I used to work with ‘older’ people lol.

                    • Rain you are absolutely correct…the one exception to the men having more honor…two words…JIM Then again we can’t really call him a man, can we 😀

                    • Suze☕️

                      Jim is a creep! A puny little man who is nasty! Xoxoxoxxo

    • Aunt Bee

      I agree with you Suse. It was 13 years ago and there have been no allegations since then. Whatever happened has obviously been resolved in the Beador family and being brought up by a filthy minded pig and her friend is unconscienable. Truly believe that those two slime balls played this out just as Icky planned and Kelly is being used by that old hag.

      • Rain

        Reading my mind as always Aunt Bee ❤️❤️❤️

      • Suze☕️

        Love you Bee xxxooo

    • Janelle

      I understand how you feel Suze and I agree. (In answer to your question yesterday, I’ve just been tired lately because the kids do keep me busy but that’s nothing new. There’s just a lot going on with Halloween and their parties and 2 weddings to go to, and then the usual day to day stuff. I also need to start going to bed earlier!) Anywho, my opinion about this whole mess is that Vicki found out (just like so many others here did) about what happened in Shannon’s past and she chose to share it with Kelly and well, we know what happened from there. I really don’t want to comment anymore about it either, or speculate how bad it was, etc. I hope today was one of your good days sweetie..xoxo’s to you. 🙂

    Fact–David B pled GUILTY to assault and Battery to charges filed against him, requiring fine, probation, and mandatory battery prevention classes.

    Shannon can deny and say “allegations”, possibly to save marriage (again). Yes, long time ago, but we are all on this blog to post our opinions on the post and hopefully, not start name calling each other because of it.

    • Ace_Orion

      I agree with both of you, One Rotten Egg and Kat.

      I would like to add that I hope Shannon stops her attempts at recreating reality and encourages David to truthfully take responsibility for his violent actions.

    • Stacey

      Where did you learn of these charges and punishment details?

      • Ace_Orion

        I found the information here:

        You will have to create an account. There are also small fees involved to perform a search. I paid $1 to perform a search using David Beador’s name.

  • Kat

    In my opinion an innocent man does not plead guilty. Shannon and David cannot change history. I pray they never repeat the abuse!

  • Texussgal

    I have to agree with you ladies. I would hope that Shannon would not have stayed with David if he had hit her. Also, I am sure there are extenuating circumstances that we were not privy to. Also, we are only given partial story lines and a lot of pertinent information is left out. Guess that makes for a better storyline!

    • Anonymous

      Voice of reason Texussgal, well said xoxo

    • Rain

      Very well said Texussgal ❤️❤️❤️❤️ As parents we put up with a lot for our kids. Maybe her choices are not our choices but she’s human xoxoxo

    • Suze☕️

      Texusgal, I was wondering where you were, hope alls well with you xoxoxoxox

  • mountain momma

    I am guessing it is true, but Shannon was probably drunk off her ass and went after David for some previous infidelity and he had to get her off of him. She called the cops and the rest is history…..

  • Jack

    Possible that the state pressed charges and thats what they placed his crime under? Theres so much that goes on in a legal case, plea deals etc, that would make an innocent man plead guilty. $10000 bail and 3 years “probation” for people with that kind of money and status is nothing if it means the case goes away. Im not saying he did it or didnt do it but i don’t think its as black and white as everyone says it is. We all know how Shannon overreacts, maybe she smacked him first and he smacked her back (NOT OKAY) and thats how the cards fell. We. Just. Dont. Know. And. Never. Will. Wouldnt it be so much easier to pray for their well being than have a meltdown about things we cant change?? This comment is directed to Kat and One Rotten Egg

    • Janelle

      Jack, that was the best comment I’ve read about this whole thing – Thank you. 🙂
      I don’t (like some others) pretend to know what went on in their marriage 13 years ago and I would never want to. Great post.

    • Rain

      Way to go Jack 🙂

    • One Rotten Egg

      @jack–no meltdown from me…just cracked and hard boiled

    • Ace_Orion

      There were no meltdowns.

    • Suze☕️

      Nice someone has some common sense about this well written Jack xo


    It’s public record so she really can’t deny it.

  • Kamesha

    i think the lesson here is…airing dirty laundry=dont

  • Dave

    Shannon keeps lying even though she said “I never lie” (which only liars say, we ALL lie from time to time). It’s time for Shannon to just own it and say “we were in a bad place, David felt horrible about what he did for months, I forgave him and it has never happened again”. THAT answer would make me respect her more. The constant lying only makes her look worse and like a hypocrite.

    • Shirley

      Well said Dave. It’s a matter of public record so Shannon is a “liar face” as well if she denies domestic violence. Hit verses shove verses grab and shake? He wouldn’t have been arrested, convicted, sent into counseling and on probation if it was a wink and a kiss. Own it and stop judging others for their poor choices.

  • Rain

    Team Shannon ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Not perfect by any means but she didn’t support a cancer lie!

  • Rain

    Trying to equate how Shannon dealt with domestic abuse with how LIARFACE manipulated a cancer scam is STUPID. Please stop trying to whitewash LIARFACE. There is no coming back from that

    • Ace_Orion

      The question for me is why is Shannan drawn toward people who are physically and psychologically violent like David, Tamra, and Heather?

  • Madame Frou-Frou

    Is spanking considered sexual abuse ?

  • I agree that happened 2 shannon what 13 years ago, but why wld she feel the need to tell Vicki if it is nt still happening. Also shannon denied that her mother inlaw met the mistress, is heather also lying BC she said shannon told her that she did indeed meet the mistress. Some1 is being less thn truthful, I believe it to be shannon.

    Orange County wives have stooped so low…. all of them…. ugly.
