He was ready to move on
Shannon Beador still has a long road ahead of her as she prepares to face her estranged husband David in court. Since announcing their divorce in October, Shannon has requested spousal support and full-custody of her three children.
David has remained quiet throughout the process so far, but that may be because he’s been busy finding romance with somebody else. He’s ready to throw the past away and begin a new life with her.
Internet sleuths have revealed that David Beador is dating 34-year-old mom-of-two Lesley Cook. He was dating “several women,” according to a Radar Online source, but he started dating Lesley just before Christmas and quickly got serious about her.
They dined at The Montage in the days after Christmas, a former favorite spot of Shannon’s. In early January, David and Lesley photographed themselves working out together.
On Jan. 17, Lesley posted a photo from a Chainsmokers concert in Las Vegas. David commented on the photo, “Was this before or after we ‘bumped’ into one another? Looks like an amazing fun night! I don’t remember meeting your date though strangely enough. Maybe he was holding your shoes in back as you said your feet hurt.”
She responded, “You have the best sense of humor! I think you were holding my shoes, weren’t you?” “#wasmypleasure,” he responded.
After weeks of seeing each other, David poured out his feelings for Lesley under yet another picture on her Instagram page. On Jan. 24, David commented on one of Lesley’s inspirational posts. “Once we dig deep enough and THROW AWAY THE CRAP (PAST) that’s in our way to understand our soul, you definitely need to keep it lit. Best with an amazing partner,” the post read.
David and Lesley wrote to each other in the comments of her Instagram pictures several times over the last two months, often using the suspicious hashtags #discreet and #NOTdiscreet. David has since deleted all of his comments from Lesley’s photos though.
While David is enjoying his new relationship, Shannon is busying herself with her three girls.
Shannon and her family were renting a mansion in 2016 and 2017. Since the split, Shannon moved into a much smaller home with her three girls. Though she may not be used to living in a smaller home, she’s making do with the space and trying to enjoy her life as a single woman.
She threw her daughter a Coachella-themed birthday party, and she decorated the garage with string lights and psychedelic posters. She posted a short video of the space on Feb. 5. “When you don’t have enough room in your new house for 20 kids, you put together your DIY Coachella theme in the garage!” she wrote.
Shannon is also working hard to get her body back into shape using her friend Tamra Judge as a personal trainer. Shannon gained over a dozen pounds of excess fat when she overate as a way to cope with her negative feelings after finding out about her husband’s nearly year-long affair.
Filming for season 13 of RHOC began on Feb. 10, but there hasn’t been any word yet on if there will be new ladies added to the cast. Both Meghan King Edmonds and Lydia McLaughlin have announced they won’t be returning for season 13.
