Shannon Beador has decided to end her legal battle with Mark Zuckerberg over the unauthorized use of her image.

According to court documents obtained by Radar, the 57-year-old Real Housewives of Orange County star informed the court she is dismissing all claims against Facebook.

She dropped the case “without prejudice” meaning she could refile the claims at a later date. The decision to end the battle is interesting given Beador had yet to serve Facebook.

Back in July, the reality star rushed to court to slap Facebook with a civil lawsuit. Beador claimed a diet pill company had been using her face and name to promote their products without permission.

She said the promos were being blasted on Facebook and Instagram. She said over 15 third party companies were acting like she endorsed a dietary supplement.

She was seeking an injunction prohibiting Facebook from posting the ads and unspecified damages. Facebook did not respond to the case nor did the Bravo star serve the company.

Regardless, the case is closed.

Over the past couple of years, Beador has been in and out of court in various lawsuits. She was sued by Alexis Bellino's ex-husband Jim who accused her of defaming him with statements she made on Heather McDonald's podcast with Tamra Judge.

Beador denied defaming Bellino claiming his reputation was already tarnished. She said nothing she said caused him damages. The judge presiding over the case agreed and awarded the RHOC star $136k in attorney fees.

Bellino and Judge are currently working to settle their issues and avoid a costly trial.

Earlier this year, Beador also had to go back to divorce court to fight her ex-husband David. She claimed he was attempting to block their daughters from filming Real Housewives of Orange County. He didn't deny the claim saying he feared she would bring up his new wife and family on the show. David said he wanted no part of the TV drama.

Eventually, the parties reached a deal that allowed their girls to remain on the show. Beador is also still suing her ex-divorce lawyer who she claims botched her settlement.
