They barely see each other
It’s difficult to understand the inner workings of the mind of Shannon Beador. The Real Housewives of Orange County star says she wants her marriage to work but doesn’t seem to want to put in the effort. It seems she’s too busy emasculating her husband.
She’s unhappy with the amount of time she spends with David; Shannon is upset with the amount of time David spends working out. No, that is not a joke. She is truly emotional and actually had a breakdown about it.
In last night’s episode of RHOC, we watched as couples trained for the Spartan Race. Tamra and Eddie trained together; Lydia and Doug trained together, but poor David Beador trained alone, which seems odd since Shannon has been diligently working to get her figure back. One would think the Spartan Race would be a great way to do that. Plus, it would be time spent with her husband, right?
Shannon and David drove to meet with Eddie and Tamra for dinner. In the car ride, the energy between Shannon and David is very heavy. Shannon talks about what she did with her trainer that day but admits she hates working out. She tells David, “When I was at Tim’s, I did some squats for the first time. I definitely have more stamina, you know. When I started, I couldn’t do very much. I just… I still hate it.” David tries to explain the importance of flipping the way she thinks, but instead of hearing him, she got defensive. That seems to be the usual pattern for Mrs. Beador.
“There are things that I do that you despise. So maybe I should tell you to flip your switch next time,” she snaps. David responds in laughter, “You’re right about that. That’s an excellent point.”
When the two arrive to meet the Judges, Shannon is clearly breathing heavy. All she did was walk from the car into the restaurant. Perhaps it was the six-inch heels she was wearing. Eddie points out that she seems to continue to talk about her work out. She updates Tamra and Eddie on her success in her weight loss/healthy body journey. She boasts that at her second weigh in with Tim, she’s lost four pounds and three and a half percent body fat. Way to go Shannon.
Tamra asks Shannon and David if they are going to the Spartan Race. Who knew such an innocent question would result in such an uncomfortable dinner? David admits he tried to have the conversation with Shannon, but it didn’t seem to go well. Shannon explains her side of the story, saying, “I just pointed out. That because his exercise schedule is so rigorous now. Both the kids and I don’t see him. He works out before work, comes home, eats with us. And then goes and works out until he goes to bed.”
David then goes to explain to Tamra and Eddie that he thought it would be a good idea for he and Shannon to do the race together. It would make sense… Shannon gets a work out. David gets to enjoy what he loves. Everybody wins, right? Nope! Not for Shannon. She doesn’t think doing the race is a good idea. She says very sarcastically, “I’m not gonna go on a romantic trip with my husband, so he can run a Spartan Race.”
