“Everyone is really starting to worry about Shannon," an insider told RadarOnline.com. "She is in a really dark place!”
During this week's shocking episode, she got into a blowout fight with Kelly Dodd, which ended with Beador hurling a plate across a crowded restaurant at her frenemy as she left.
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 RadarOnline.com 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.
