But behind all the glitz and glamor of the original Housewives’ franchise, we’ve learned mother-of-three Beador is hiding a dark family secret.
Her husband, David, was investigated on two charges of “battery against cohabitant” and “assault” in 2003, court records obtained exclusively by Radar reveal.
48-year-old David, who owns a construction company in Corona, Calif., was released on $10,000 bond after the incident.
He pled not guilty and the case was eventually dismissed three years later.
It is not known who filed the original compliant.
The Beadors are not the first OC Housewives couple to be linked to abuse scandals: In 2010, Barney’s ex-husband Simon was arrested on a domestic violence charge following an altercation with his then estranged wife. The couple got into an argument which ended in Simon allegedly throwing the dog’s leash at his reality star partner.
“Excited to be going to the game tomorrow with Shannon & David (new housewife) can’t wait to see you,” she wrote on Instagram.
