After David Beador’s abuse allegations went public this week, Shannon Beador’s RHOC co-stars are reportedly begging her to leave her husband.
“Most of the women on the show have talked to Shannon privately and urged her to be strong and to make the move,” a show insider says. “She would be better off without him.”
“It isn’t just that it is embarrassing for Shannon, it’s about her mental health and safety. She’s so upset all the time and she should get out,” the source added.
“Her friends have been telling her that David is treating her terribly and that she doesn’t have to put up with it,” the insider told RadarOnline.
As we previously reported, prosecutors requested a protective order for Shannon against David just three months after he was charged with assault and spousal battery in 2003.
Before the case was dropped, a judge forced David to attend a nine-month batterer’s treatment program, pay a domestic violence fee, serve community service, and complete three years of probation.
“All Shannon’s friends care about it her happiness,” the source said. “They want her to get out and get help.”
