Shannon Beador was accused of racist behavior by someone who claimed they've never seen her "around a black person before" on Instagram on Tuesday, September 3. The Real Housewives of Orange County star is no stranger to these types of allegations as they've swarmed around her since she joined the Bravo series.
Shannon, 55, shared a "pre-moving day" selfie with her boyfriend John Janssen, daughters Sophie, Stella and Adeline and a couple other pals, one of which was a black male. The beach house she moved into recently was a summer-only kind of deal for her.
"I've never seen you around a black person before," one follower wrote in the comments section while adding "Of course, he is the help."
Their words did not sit well with Shannon who responded with "You are unbelievably out of line. What a racist comment. You should be ashamed of yourself. He is part of my extended family."
Shannon's Instagram troll was far from the first to accuse her of being racist. RHOC fans slammed her in 2016 after she said that costar Kelly Dodd looked "like an indian" at her 70's themed party.
The mother-of-three told Kelly, 43, those words to her face when they had an explosive fight after the party was over. "Goodness. After a lengthy conversation about how my costume wasn't 70's, I said Kelly's wasn't & looked Native Amer," Shannon wrote in a still active tweet.
"No, Shannon you used the word 'Indian' in a derogatory manner when saying she looked ugly too," one fan tweeted back. "U were trying to strike back."
Shannon and her RHOC costars didn't receive that warm of a welcome when they showed up to a resort in Jamaica wearing fake dreadlocks during the show's 13th season.
"If we wear these hats you won’t be mad at us,” Vicki Gunvalson said to her van driver. The staff, however, didn't appear that thrilled by what they were sporting.
Shannon also didn't earn any points when her pal Tamra Judge posted a photo of them at a hip-hop class with newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke. The dance scene played out on RHOC when Shannon showed up to the studio mocking hip hop culture with a massive fake gold chain, repeatedly shouting "yo!" Tamra chimed in that it was "sad" that she was wearing her own daughter's clothes.
"She is trying to hard," one wrote about Shannon's hip-hop inspired outfit. "She needs to sit down," another commented about her ensemble.
