The newly svelte mother of three has navigated some rocky waters over the past few years. She discovered her husband David had cheated on her, had an epic fallout with friend Vicki Gunvalson and gained 40 pounds in the process.
While she ultimately made up with Gunvalson, she and David divorced. She continued to struggle with the divorce and her weight gain last season of the show, often putting her at odds with the cast. But on the eve of the new season, Beador has not only has slimmed down and lost all the weight, but she also seems to have gained a new mate.
Filling her love tank
Beador first posted a gorgeous photo to Instagram with her mystery man. The sun is setting in the background, but the ambiance isn’t the thing making Beador’s face light up. She’s standing close to a new man and the couple looks smitten. Beador only included an anchor and heart emoji along with her photo.
Friend and cast member, Tamra Judge responded, “Love birds ❤️. Can’t wait to meet him tomorrow.” Also, new cast member Braunwyn Windham-Burke commented, “You have a good one!!”
Judge later confirmed that the couple was definitely hot and heavy. She posted a picture to her Instagram of the twosome in a lip-lock. Judge wrote, “@shannonbeador in love.” Beador responded and agreed they all had a “fun night” too.
Fans are thrilled for Beador. One fan summed it up perfectly. “You [truly] look wonderful lately, in body & spirit – you are just oozing happy & long may it last for you, you deserve it.”
Who is Beador’s mystery man?
Beador’s new mystery man is California native John Janssen, People reports. The couple was connected by a mutual friend and have actually been together for a few months.
Both Janssen and Beador graduated from the University of Southern California. They even attended the university at the same time but did not know each other when they were students. Today, Janssen is a partner at an insurance firm.
A source close to Beador told People Janssen has even met Beador’s three daughters. “The girls really like him,” the source commented. “Shannon’s really happy. He’s a great guy, and really adores her. And she is equally smitten. They make a great couple together and have been having a lot of fun.”
Janssen is also “RHOC approved” too. The source confirmed to People that Beador’s friends like Janssen. “Everyone is really happy for Shannon,” the source said. “She’s in a really good place. It’s no secret she’s gone through a lot, but she really took the time to work on herself and that opened her up to meeting someone like John. It really is the right guy at the right time.”
RHOC returns to Bravo on August 6 at 8/9c.
