On The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, Shannon Beador said she’s never met her estranged husband David’s girlfriend of over a year, Lesley Cook. She even went so far as to tell fans she wouldn’t know what the blonde bombshell looked like if she bumped into her on the street.
However, a source close to the David and Lesley told RadarOnline.com exclusively that Shannon has met her ex's lady love multiple times!
“Shannon's had several very close encounters with Lesley, and she knows it," the source huffed.
“Aside from running into her while shopping, Shannon also recently attended a USC football game — and David and Lesley were also there."
“Although she did not walk up and say hello, Shannon could not take her eyes off David and Lesley. She must have walked circles around them 10 times!"
According to the source, Shannon has also not been completely honest about how her three daughters — Sophie, 16, and twins Stella and Adeline, 13 — feel about their dad’s new love.
“Although Shannon’s daughters love their mom and want what is best for her, they also feel the same about their father,” the insider said.
“They think it is wonderful to see their father happy because he deserves that. They do not take sides but they are also not fake with their feelings. The girls are very fond of Lesley and her kids.”
In July, Radar caught David, Lesley and his daughters with Shannon at an Orange County restaurant grabbing dinner together.
As Radar reported, the couple of over one year currently live together in his 6-bedroom mansion.
Contrary to speculation on the RHOC reunion, they are not yet expecting a baby Beador.
