'She's Earned Every Penny!' Why Shannon Won’t Give Up On Spousal Support From David

Shannon Beador and jilted ex David sparred in and outside of a courtroom this week after he was ordered to continue paying The Real Housewives of Orange County star more than $10,000 per month in child support — and learned exclusively she's not giving up the fight!

The 54-year-old contemplated throwing in the towel for the sake of her sanity, but her experienced-with-divorce co-stars told her, “No! No! No! ”

“Shannon earned every penny of her spousal support for putting up with him all of those years. She deserves it and she earned it,” a source close Shannon said.

As reported, one year after announcing their split on Oct. 27, 2017, Shannon and David appeared on Oct. 15 in court and came to the agreement that he would continue paying her $10,500 a month and that he could amend the amount at a later date, with the difference going to their three daughters — Sophie, 17, and 14-year old twins Stella and Adeline.

During the heated hearing, David asked the judge if he could show the court-appointed forensic accountant, Andrew Hunt, the RHOC contract signed by Shannon.

“I’m just trying to provide a basis for the fact that he’s using $300,000 as her year-per-year salary when she was making far more than that. That’s all I’m trying to prove here. Honestly, I hate this, and I just want to settle the whole thing,” David, who, again, chose not to get a lawyer, said.

However, according to the source, the amount of money that Shannon earned from being a reality TV star is “completely irrelevant!”

“Shannon knows that the show is not forever and, despite how much money she is earning on RHOC, she is still raising her three daughters with David."
