Real Housewives of Orange County stars David and Shannon Beador have separated after 17 years of marriage.
“It’s heartbreaking for me and my daughters that this is the road that had to be taken but it’s the only way,” Shannon told People before sharing the news with her fellow Bravo stars during a taping of the RHOC reunion show October 27th. “I felt alone in my marriage. You can do what you can to keep your family together, but you have to have willing parties. You need two people to make a marriage work, and that just wasn’t happening in our relationship.”
Shannon and David share three daughters, aged 12-15.
