Shannon Beador's divorce is in full swing. And we'd heard that David Beador was furious over how much he's paying Shannon each month.
But it looks like there's been more behind-closed-doors nastiness that no one's seen until now.
Some of David's private text messages to Shannon have been revealed, and they are heartbreakingly cruel.
Back in September, The Real Housewives of Orange County star and her husband separated after reportedly living separate lives for a long, long time.
In October, they made it official, filing for divorce.
What was initially going to be an amicable divorce, complete with the couple continuing to do activities with their three teenage daughters on a regular basis, broke down into a deeply acrimonious divorce.
By December, Shannon was tired of David's behavior and started being more aggressive in the divorce.
Though it was reported that David was "shaking with anger" and cursing at Shannon after the court ruled on how much child support and spousal support he would need to pay Shannon, fans may be shocked when they hear these explosive text messages.
Shannon Beador did an interview with Jeff Lewis, Jenni Pulos, and Gage on Andy Cohen's SiriusXM channel, Radio Andy.
And ... it seems like Shannon ended up getting a little blindsided, because Jeff Lewis had some text messages that she had received that she apparently hadn't realized that she'd sent to him.
"You accidentally sent me a few texts of a conversation between you and David," Jeff tells her. "I wanted to prove to the listeners how David has moved on."
David Beador has a young, hot girlfriend, but that's not what Jeff means.
Jenni Pulos reads the texts, which are attributed to David, and they are stomach-churning.
"F--k you. So tired of you. You f--king disgust me. F--k you. What do you have to do? Eat? Because you can’t get off your fat ass."
This isn't the first time that we've heard of David fat-shaming his ex for her (genuinely minor) weight gain. It's said that David stopped loving her when she became "fat."
Shannon responded with shock -- not over the content of the texts, but over the fact that Jeff had them.
"Oh my gosh you guys. What do you mean I sent that to you? Are you kidding me? Oh my God. Oh my God. That was a couple months ago."
She says that she's not receiving texts of that nature from David now.
Jenni went on to read yet another text.
"World ending tonight? You get out of your pajamas today? Sleep ’til two. The sad part is your b--ch behavior is normal for you. F--k you."
Shannon protests, saying: "Stop it, you guys!"
But those texts are pretty horrifying.
It's always strange to hear anyone judge or dislike someone else for what they allegedly eat or what time of day they wake up.
(In fact, some would question what the point of being a millionaire is if you don't sleep until the afternoon)
It's worse to hear those messages sent from someone who spent years married to the recipient, who once loved her.
Some people can't fall out of love without falling into hate.
To be clear, we can't vouch for the veracity of these text messages. Shannon indicated that they were the real deal, however.
It looks like there are a couple of possibilities for how this came up.
One, it could be that Shannon was trying to send a screenshot of them to her attorney and accidentally sent them to Jeff Lewis.
She's 53 and, honestly, even the most tech-savvy Millennial or Gen Z could get distracted and do the same.
Two, however, it could always be that Shannon had quietly arranged for her own on-air ambush in order to leak the texts while playing innocent.
Considering the content of those alleged text messages, who could blame her?
