Shannon Beador Shares Why She Was Embarrassed to Tell Her Husband David About Her Weight Gain

Shannon Beador has really opened up about her weight struggle on this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Beador revealed that she had gained forty pounds since last season, including forty percent body fat.

She confessed that she was embarrassed to tell her husband David about her weight. “I’m not even gonna tell David because I’m afraid if I tell him, he’s just gonna be done.”

In a new interview, Shannon is clarifying what she meant by this statement. “When I said in the show, ‘I don’t want to tell David,’ clearly he saw the weight that I’d gained. I didn’t want to tell him the 40 percent body fat. But I knew that by the time the show aired, you know, if he came to me and said, ‘Are you 40 percent body fat?’ I could say, ‘No, I’m 29.’ So that’s what I didn’t want to tell David,” she explained, adding that David isn’t keeping up with the show as much this season. “But I haven’t felt good about myself, so that is gonna take an effect on the relationship, it is.”

Since then, Shannon has lost 15 pounds and now has 29 percent body fat, she previously shared with The Daily Dish. Shannon said her marriage is in a better place, too. “Things are, things are good. You know, we’re good,” Shannon shared. “Every marriage has the high high and sometimes you go low. And let’s be honest, I ended last season on the highest high I think I’ve ever had in our marriage because we renewed our vows and everything was so amazing. So you go through dips and valleys.”

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 AllThingsRH.com 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.
