Shannon Beador: My Weight Gain Is A Struggle!


We think it’s fair to say Shannon Beador had a terrible time of it during The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11. 

She was bickering with Vicki Gunvalson on a weekly basis, and there were some crazy rumors flying around that that Shannon’s husband, David Beador was abusing her. 

These stories, of course, came from Vicki, who was intent on causing a lot of drama for her co-stars. It made for first-class reality TV, but it took its toll on Shannon. 

So much so that she has gained around forty pounds from last season. If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you will already know that she felt some of the blame had to go on Vicki. 

“I knew an allegation was put out there about my husband,” she said on the show’s Season 12 premiere. Yes, it’s crazy to think the show has been on the air for so long. 

However, it looks like the drama is showing no signs of fatigue, so we’re all strapped in and ready for another wild ride with these crazy ladies. 

Shannon continued to open up about her weight gain on the premiere.

“That stress caused me to eat more, caused me to drink more and that’s a huge part of why I gained my weight.” It’s such a horrible situation to be in, and we feel for Shannon. 

If the rumors are fiction, then it’s such an awful thing for her. Her husband’s name is being dragged through the mud, and she’s helpless. We can’t even begin to imagine how David feels about the whole thing. 

Shannon has even been opening up about her weight gain on Instagram, and you can tell she’s really hurting. 

She released the following statement just a few days ago:

So let’s just get to it. Yes, I have gained weight. A lot of weight. About 40 pounds to be exact. I have not had plastic surgery or fillers, it’s just plain and simple weight gain.

There are multiple factors that have contributed to my size and it will be addressed this season on the show. To those people who intend to write cruel or derogatory comments to me, I want to let you know you will be blocked and the comment deleted.

Gaining weight and trying to take it off is a struggle that most women will face at some point in their lives. I am hopeful that my fans and viewers of the show will be supportive of my journey.

I am very grateful and thankful to those people that have already reached out to me with their kind thoughts. ❤️ Let the season begin…

She also shared a before, and after picture in which it was visible, she had gained some weight. However, she still looks very healthy. 

“Five years ago almost to the day. Same cabana. Same amazing friend. Not the same body,” she captioned. 

What do you think about all of this?
