Season 10 of "Real Housewives of Orange County" premiered with a bombshell: Shannon Beador's husband, David, had an affair.
In Monday's premiere, Shannon Beador revealed her husband cheated on her with another woman after the two worked to get their marriage back on track and spend more time together in Season 9.
"I caught him whispering to this person on the phone and I suspected that something was wrong," she said. "I knew. I just knew something was different. And I was told I was crazy or I was told I was stupid, and it's upsetting to me because I knew. It was April 1st -- April Fools Day, Shannon -- and he was taking the kids to school and I grabbed his briefcase and I saw all the hotel receipts. When he came home, I said, 'I'm going to ask you one last time: Are you having an affair?' and he said, 'Yes, I am.'"
In the premiere episode, the two are seen attending an emotional couples' therapy session, where they discussed their life experiences, both positive and negative.
The mother of three, who said divorce is not an option, discussed the pain of the situation further in her Bravo blog Tuesday night. She said the episode was difficult for her to watch.
When watching David reveal the highs and lows in his life, I felt like I was punched in the stomach. I saw that he listed the affair as both a "high" and a "low." I heard him say that the affair gave him "new life." Today, I am trying to process through the hurt that I feel from his comments. Some moments can be difficult, but I am focusing on the positive. I remind myself of the commitment that David has made to both me and our family. He has not only made himself accountable to me, but to everyone who watches the show, and for that, I am grateful beyond words.
