Just because Shannon Beador is divorcing David and plans to take everything doesn’t mean that David’s life is over. Much to Shannon’s chagrin.
In fact, it looks like David has found a new lady love.
And these two don’t seem to care anymore who knows.
We know that David Beador more or less looks the same in every photo, but that is definitely not Shannon Beador by his side.
This woman, who RadarOnline reports is named Lesley Cook, is a 34-year-old mother of two very young children.
Lesley is a DIY blogger and a native of Orange County and has been posting about how much she loves Laguna (in between photos of her two precious children, of course).
She’s also been spotted at The Montage, which was a favored restaurant for David and Shannon during their marriage.
RadarOnline reports that multiple sources confirm that Lesley and David are indeed dating. It would appear that this relationship started some time during December.
Now, David and Lesley haven’t been posting photos of themselves locking lips, but we have more than just reports to point to these two being in a relationship.
In the captions of the photo of the two of them, which was posted on January 14th, Lesley simply wrote:
"Bumped into this guy …"
Lesley said that the photo was at 2am in Las Vegas when speaking to her aunt.
It was only when someone called David hot and Lesley "lucky" that David chimed in, insisting that he is the lucky one.
That’s not the only instance.
Honestly, we don’t know if it was an inside joke or if someone pranked David Beador by telling him that using the "#discreet" hashtag would somehow make his comments invisible to everyone but the recipient.
(He and Lesley have both used "#discrete" which is also a word but not with their intended meaning)
Because he’s used that hashtag multiple times in comments and … absolutely everyone can see them.
Lesley Cook shared on Instagram that she really wore herself out exercising, and David revealed in the captions that he had been helping her along.
David also added another comment, teasing:
"Was this before or after we ‘bumped’ into one another? Looks like an amazing fun night! I don’t remember meeting your date though, strangely enough … maybe he was holding your shoes in back as you said your feet hurt."
That’s the way that people talk when they want the whole world to know that they’re dating an attractive younger woman but promised, like, an attorney or maybe their children that they’d keep things on the down-low for a while.
There have been others photos — not showing David but showing that she’s been working out, with David implying in the comments that he was there with her.
We suppose that, since David Beador stopped loving Shannon when she got "fat," David’s pretty focused on making sure that his new lady love is in good shape.
David was reportedly seeing multiple women pretty much as things ended with Shannon Beador, but it looks like he and Lesley have been pretty exclusive since before Christmas.
Reportedly, Shannon Beador knows and, um, isn’t super thrilled that her ex has immediately moved on with a younger woman.
This may shed some light on Shannon Beador’s desire to boot David off of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Maybe she could swallow her pride enough to film necessary conflict scenes for her divorce storyline. But imagine if Lesley becomes a Real Housewife?
No offense to Lesley, who has surely done nothing wrong, but that might be too much to bear for poor Shannon.
