The Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador said she made about $423K in 2017, and is expected to pay almost half of her earnings in taxes, according to court documents obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.
David had asked a judge to reconsider the $30K spousal and child support he has been paying every month, but the judge deferred making a final decision until both parties appear back in court for a trial in April.
The exes have been sharing equal custody of their three daughters, Sophie, 17, and twins Adeline and Stella, 14.
According to court documents, Shannon listed her average monthly income for 2017 as $37,767, and labeled herself as a "reality television personality."
Shannon listed $30,235 under her average monthly expense, and also noted a $10k expense for "filming preparation," according to the affidavit.
Shannon also listed the total balance in her account as $45,352 after attorney costs, credit card debt and taxes.
Under her costs, Shannon noted that a portion of the attorney's fees she incurred was for defending herself "against a defamation complaint brought by the spouse of a former castmate," referring to Jim and Alexis Bellino.
As Radar readers know, Jim sued Shannon and fellow castmate Tamra Judge for allegedly slamming his character on a podcast. A judge ruled Shannon should be dropped from the civil suit, but Jim has appealed that decision.
Meanwhile, David he has tried at least twice to ask the judge to lessen his child and spousal support payments, and claims his ex actually earned about $900,000.
In the court documents, Shannon listed David's monthly income as $108,168 as of December 31, 2017.
Since 2017, Shannon has launched a successful QVC food line — and is now dating a rich Comcast Spotlight executive Rick Stanley.
