Vicki Gunvalson To Bring Proof At The Reunion Regarding David Beador Abuse Allegations
It's no secret that for the past few seasons, Vicki Gunvalson and Shannon Beador have been mortal enemies. Last year, Vicki and Shannon went head to head when Vicki claimed Shannon had told her that her husband physically abused her. Shannon went off on Vicki claiming she was a liar and making it all up. Shannon was so affected by these claims that she went into a deep depression and gained 40-50lbs. Shannon even blamed Vicki for her weight gain on the show this season.
However, just couple of weeks ago, media outlets reported that in 2003 David was arrested for battery committed against a spouse. David posted bail and was places on three years informal probation. This undoubtedly has sent Shannon over the edge.
Last year, Vicki had brought up on the show that Shannon confided in her that David had assaulted her again more recently but Shannon vehemently denied it. To make things worse, the reunion show is set to be filmed this week. Vicki has claimed in the past that she has text messages and pictures from Shannon to prove her most recent abuse. Sources close to Vicki have said that she is definitely bringing this up at the reunion. It will be interesting to see how Shannon is going to explain the 2003 arrest and her response to Vicki's so-called proof.
Shannon and Vicki have had a rocky relationship ever since "cancer gate." Vicki's then boyfriend Brooks Ayers claimed to have cancer. The cast members weren't buying Brooks and Vicki with the cancer claims. They did their own research to only find continual holes in their story. Later, Brooks admitted that he never had cancer and Vicki knew about it all along.
Proof May Not Be Needed Now
As of today, it has been publicly reported that Shannon Beador officially filed for divorce from her husband David Beador. She also mentioned that she and David have been separated secretly for a month. Shannon 53 and David 52 had been married for 17 years. They have three daughters: Sophie 15, and twins Adeline and Stella 12. Shannon stated:
"It's heartbreaking for me and my daughters that this is the road that had to be taken but it's the only way. 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."
If Shannon returns the show, it will be interesting to see how her new life plays out next year. She is reportedly sporting a much slimmer figure compared to the 40 pounds she gained due to the strain in her marriage.
