The Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador recently announced that production had started for the upcoming season of the hit show — but has exclusively learned her estranged husband David will definitely not be joining her onscreen this year.

After Radar reported the reality mom of three, 53, demanded her ex be booted from the series, a source close to production said, "It is true Shannon wanted him off. She wants to just move on with her life."

But it isn't just Shannon who wants her cheating ex off TV. "He doesn't want to be on it, either!" the source said. "He's done."

The RHOC husband is not only "didn't want to be in the spotlight to begin with," but is extra nervous now that his marriage has officially failed before viewers' eyes.

"He really doesn't want the attention while going through this divorce with Shannon," the insider explained to Radar.

"David has no plans to film anything for RHOC ever again. He has pretty much cast himself out now that he is no longer with Shannon."

As Radar was the first to report, the father to Shannon's kids Sophie, 16, and twins Stella and Adeline, 13, has already moved on with much younger blond beauty Lesley Cook, 34.

Though her ex is bowing out of production, fans can still expect major drama. Shannon will be discussing her divorce candidly onscreen, a source previously told Radar.

Radar first revealed that Shannon's costars Peggy Sulahian and Lydia McLaughlin are also not returning next season. In addition, Meghan Edmonds announced she too would be moving on.
