On Monday night's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon Beador sees a matchmaker and gets ready to start dating again despite her bitter divorce war with estranged husband David Beador.

"I feel nothing for him. It's not anger. How can you just feel nothing after 20 years?" Shannon asked her pals while getting ready for her upcoming court battle with David.

Shannon’s castmates, however, were done reliving the past, and instead began brainstorming ideas to set their pal up with a new man who could help satisfy her needs!

"She needs to jump right back on that horse. She needs to get laid," Tamra Judge said to the matchmaker.

"If I have to choose a man from Shannon, he would be tall, dark, handsome and good in the sack," Kelly Dodd said as Shannon was getting ready to see the matchmaker. "Someone that just wants to have sex all the time."

"I have always been a one guy kinda gal," Shannon told the matchmaker before Tamra jumped in to clarify the situation.

"Her husband put her through the ringer. He moved out of the house and threw his wedding ring at his daughter. And she still took him back," Tamra told the matchmaker.

Despite her friends’ enthusiasm, Shannon — who recently lost a lot amount of weight — seemed to have a lot on her mind.

"I just want it to be over. I don't know what David I am going to see today," Shannon told her lawyer, Ben, prior to the proceedings.

"My attorney met with David in attempt to settle, and he said no," she later said during a confessional.

"Interestingly, David's position in his brief is that he wants to continue to pay a lot of these expenses rather than pay you support," Ben said.

"I am not looking forward to today because I have never been in a divorce proceeding before. In the past David has shown a bit of anger towards me. I feel like I am walking on egg shells because I don't know what is going to happen in court," Shannon continued in her confessional.

"For 17 years David handled our finances and now it is not in his control and that might cause some anger."

"I just want to get it over with," Shannon told her mom. "I feel like I am walking into the unknown."

But the proceedings didn't go exactly as she was hoping, and after the court hearing, Shannon called Tamra to talk about the dramatic encounter.

"My nerves are shot. The judge ordered him to pay me a lot of money every month. $30,000 a month," Shannon told Tamra while in tears afterwards.

"Tamra, we went out in the hallway and David came around the corner. He just went off. My lawyer had to call…screamed for the bailiff. He was so livid!" she added. exclusively reported in March that during their court face-off, David blamed Shannon for spending money “like a freak!”

Apart from not wanting to pay her support, David also demanded a cut of his reality star ex’s hefty paycheck!

"I felt bad because I felt like we should lower it. We decided to lower it to be nice. I just want him out of my life," Shannon told the RHOC ladies of her ex.


As previously reported, Shannon agreed to lower the spousal support amount in hopes of ending her feud with David once and for all.

"We actually settled on $22,500 a month," Shannon said during a confessional afterwards. "Because that is what I need at this point."

Meanwhile, new cast mate Emily Moore Simpson tried to justify her husband's wacky behavior after her cast mates called him "a d**k."

"She said she worked with him for three years when he was married and the minute they got divorced he asked her to marry him via text," Vicki told Tamra about Emily's marriage to Shane while the two visited their plastic surgeon.

"I'm not going to lie. Shane just sounds a little controlling," Tamra said of Simpson's marriage.

But not everyone in the show was having relationship woes.

Dodd wasn't wasting any time in her cast mates’ drama as she was much too busy exploring her new dating life — this time with a milkman named Frank!

"He actually delivers milk. That's what he does. I wouldn't mind him being my boyfriend but realistically he lives in New York," Kelly said afterwards, adding, "I'm all about the thrills right now and not about the bills."
