In a surprising turn of events, reality TV star Shannon Beador was reportedly intoxicated at a bar before her car accident and subsequent arrest. Witnesses claim that she was at “A Restaurant” in Newport Beach, California, venting about a former love from “RHOC.”
Reality TV star Shannon Beador was reportedly intoxicated at a bar prior to her car accident and subsequent arrest. She was overheard venting about a former “RHOC” love interest and expressing animosity towards another former cast member. The incident at the bar occurred just hours before Shannon’s arrest for driving under the influence and hit-and-run.
Intoxication at the Bar
According to a witness, Shannon was accompanied by her friend and business partner, Steve Muller, at the bar. While it’s unclear exactly what she was drinking, Shannon seemingly appeared inebriated, causing a ruckus throughout the night, even waving her arms in the air.
A fan even managed to snap a photo with the reality star during her eventful evening.
Complaints and Tensions
Shannon was overheard complaining about former “Housewives” star Alexis Bellino, who happened to be at the same restaurant. Despite their lack of interaction that night, Shannon expressed genuine animosity towards Alexis, venting her frustrations to those in close proximity.
In response to the situation, Alexis stated, “When my friends and I arrived for a fun night out, we soon learned that Shannon was at the same restaurant. Shannon and I did not interact that night, but I am deeply saddened to know that she may hold negative feelings or resentment towards me, as I was not involved in Jim Bellino’s lawsuit against Shannon. From one single mother to another, I wish Shannon nothing but the best as I know she is facing difficult times ahead.”
For reference, Alexis is referring to her ex-husband, Jim, who filed a multimillion-dollar defamation lawsuit against Shannon and Tamra Judge in 2018, alleging that they spoke negatively about his business on a podcast.
Bar Incident Preceding the Arrest
It is important to note that the bar incident occurred mere hours before footage captured Shannon’s car crashing into the side of a house, ultimately resulting in her arrest for driving under the influence and hit-and-run.
