“Everyone is really starting to worry about Shannon," an insider told Radar. "She is in a really dark place!”

Earlier in the same episode, she melted down sobbing after a seemingly minor disagreement with costar Lydia McLaughlin.

According to a source close to the 53-year-old wife of David, 52, "the real problem is that Shannon just thinks that being on the show is more important than her own physical and mental health.”

As Radar readers know, Beador is still struggling with her massive weight gain over the past year, her epic feud with former best friend Vicki Gunvalson, and, of course, her husband's cheating scandal two years ago and lingering marital issues.

Unfortunately, though Beador has been working hard to shed the pounds, the insider told Radar that, sadly, she has not been very successful so far.

Should Shannon take a time-out from reality TV? Sound off in the comments.
