He's not hiding it anymore
Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador is trying hard to move on after her husband David Beador asked her for a divorce. He was the one who cheated on her, and it seemed like he didn’t want to try to fix their marriage. He didn’t remain a bachelor for very long as he’s already got a new girlfriend. David’s lady wants everyone to back off and let them be happy.
David Beador is officially dating 34-year-old mom-of-two Lesley Cook. The pair got together just before Christmas, mere weeks after Shannon Beador filed the divorce papers and quickly got serious about her.
They dined at The Montage — a former favorite spot of Shannon’s — in the days just after the holiday. 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.
Although David tried to cover up his romance by deleting all of his comments from her Instagram photos, he realized that there was nothing to hide anymore. They’ve finally gone public with their relationship.
Lesley posted a quote to Instagram on Feb. 13 that said, “Don’t worry about the people who aren’t happy for you. They probably aren’t happy for themselves either.”
“This is not a forum to talk about RHOC,” she captioned the quote. “With all the hate in the world and violence… let’s inspire one another to live happy & healthy lives. We only get this one chance. Everyone deserve to be happy & find peace.”
She stated that all rude comments would be blocked.
On Feb. 14, Lesley posted a photo of red heart-shaped balloons that David may have gotten her for Valentine’s Day. He was the only person to wish her a happy holiday in the comments.
Meanwhile, Shannon is 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.
There has been no word from Shannon on how she feels about David’s relationship. Shannon and David are set to go to court on Mar. 12. She is seeking full custody of their three daughters, spousal support, and $25,000 for legal fees.
