Born in California in March 1964, Shannon Beador came to fame in 2014 when she joined The Real Housewives of Orange County in its ninth season. She earned the title of longest-running Orange County Housewife after her former pals Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge exited the show ahead of season 15.
Outside of TV, Beador has found success as an entrepreneur. She launched her Real for Real cuisine in 2018 and debuted her Lemon-Aid Daily supplement via her Real for Real website three years later. Additionally, the Bravo personality began working on becoming a certified health coach in March 2021.
Beador married contractor David Beador in 2000 and they split in 2017. The former couple — who share daughters Stella, Adeline and Sophie — finalized their divorce in 2019. She moved on with boyfriend John Janssen in 2019.
