The teaser also showed a group dinner where Beador admitted that she thinks "about what happened" every morning. Judge interjected, "Is that after you have a drink?"

"I'm done with people saying I'm the drunk that needs help, because I am not. I had a really bad night," Beador fired back in a confessional. "I want to walk out right now, because I'm ruining my makeup, so I gotta walk out."

As we previously reported, Beador was arrested at 1:17 AM in Sept. 2023 after fleeing the scene from a collision that caused property damage, police said.

RadarOnline.com obtained photos from the crash scene one week later, showing markings from the impact that were still visible as well as the damage near the front door of the address.

The Bravolebrity was found walking her dog by police after she allegedly left her car in the middle of the road, according to the initial report.

She was booked for two misdemeanors — one for a hit-and-run, and a DUI — and released on a citation.

Weeks later, this outlet learned she was no longer under investigation by animal control for the DUI incident involving her pup, Archie.
