Judge Allows Shannon Beador’s Daughters To Film ‘RHOC’ Season 16 Despite David Beador’s Initial Objection; Shannon Is Ordered To Pay Ex-Husband’s Attorney Fees As Part Of Their Deal!

A judge has ruled Shannon Beador’s daughters can film The Real Housewives of Orange County despite their father David Beador’s initial objection.

According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, the judge ordered the former couple’s twin daughters are allowed to “continue filming as cast members of the reality show The Real Housewives of Orange County, without interference from” David.

Per their deal, Shannon has to pay David $6,938 in attorney fees. All hearings have been taken off the calendar as a result of the agreement.

As previously reported, Shannon filed emergency documents in court asking a judge to allow her two 17-year-old daughters to continue filming on the Bravo hit reality series. 

In the filing via The Blast, Shannon claimed that she has recently been asked to begin her 8th season of the show — but the production wants to film in her with her three children (Sophie, Stella, and Adeline). It should be noted, Sophie is 20 years old — so the request is only for the two minor children.

“The filming of the Show is my primary career and is part of and supportive of my primary income source, for which I use said income to care for my children. If my children do not film on the show, I will be in violation of my contract and will lose my job, and thus my ability to earn income,” she said.

Shannon revealed her ex-husband was interfering and preventing the children from filming the show.

In an opposition, filed by David Beador, he admitted that he allowed for the children to participate in the filing in prior years, but claimed things are now “much different” in their family’s lives. To start, he has a “new family” and is trying to “protect and not expose to a reality television show.”

“My current wife also has two other children of her own that do not need to have their mother exposed to possible disparaging comments made about our family on national television,” he said.

David claimed he's willing to compromise with his ex-wife — asking that she and the production company ensure no disparaging comments will be made about him on the show.

“I find it very troubling that these proposed limitations are not acceptable with the (Shannon) and/or her counsel considering the fact that (Shannon) and I both have joint legal custody. It is also concerning to me that these narrowly tailored limitations are not acceptable with the (Shannon) and/her counsel because it gives me the feeling that she does in fact intend on referencing either myself, my new wife, and our new daughter during the filming of this 16th season. This Is absolutely not acceptable to me,” he wrote.

In a letter included in the filing, ‘RHOC’ producers confirm they would remove Shannon from the show if they are not able to film inside her home or all the children. “Quite simply, then, without any access to Shannon’s children, we are not able to document Shannon’s life, and therefore she will not have satisfied the contingencies in her agreement with us and we will not be able to have her on the show going forward,” an executive producer of the show wrote.

Shannon and David split in September 2017 after over 17 years of marriage. The mother-of-three filed for divorce in December 2017. In June 2019, the former couple reached a settlement where David agreed to pay $10,000 a month in support plus a $1.4 million lump-sum payment.
