Bravo’s Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador has been all over the headlines recently. Just not for good reasons. As TV Shows Ace reported two days ago, the TV personality was arrested. She was reportedly under the influence when she slammed into a building before driving away. When the cops were onto her, Shannon Beador allegedly ditched her car in the middle of the road and pretended she was walking her dog and oblivious to what was going on.
Yesterday, there was an update. Shannon Beador was headed to rehab following the DUI hit-and-run. Her loved ones told media outlets the situation was a “brutal wake-up call” for the TV personality. Both her loved ones and her Bravo co-stars have been telling her she has a problem. Finally, everyone believes she’s got the “wake-up” call she needed to get some help with her problems.
In a new update, more information is starting to come out about what Shannon was doing prior to her DUI arrest. Turns out, those who spotted her before the accident likely knew she shouldn’t have been behind the wheel of a vehicle.
What information was revealed in this new update? Keep reading for the details.
I know #JeffLewis is sticking up for #ShannonBeador but for him to say, she’s not an alcoholic when there is empiric evidence of blacking out throughout this season documented by her cast mates, is not helping his friend. https://t.co/HtPjWDNj35 #RHOC

RHOC: Shannon Beador Spotted Boozed Up Prior To DUI Arrest?
According to TMZ, new sources are coming forward with claims they saw Shannon Beador prior to her DUI hit-and-run. The sources claim the Bravo personality looked to be pretty “boozed up” as she hung out at a bar. The witness notes Shannon was at a bar called “A Restaurant” with her business partner, Steve Muller. This particular establishment is located in Newport Beach, CA and it is just half a mile from the spot where she crashed her vehicle later that same night while under the influence.
Multiple sources confirm Shannon Beador seemed fairly “boozed up” the whole time she was at the bar. Witnesses, however, did not get a good look at what she was drinking. One witness described her behavior that evening as rowdy as she yelled while waving her arms around in the air.

At one point, she was overheard complaining about her former co-star Alexis Bellino. Alexis also happened to be in the bar that night. Alexi did provide TMZ with a statement regarding her recollection of that night:
When my girlfriends and I arrived for a fun night out together, it was soon brought to my attention that Shannon was also at the same restaurant. Shannon and I did not interact that night, but it greatly saddens me to learn that she may harbor negative feelings or resentment toward 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 trying times ahead.
As Bravo fans know, Alexis’ ex-husband Jim filed a lawsuit against Shannon and Tamra Judge back in 2018. Alexis maintains she had nothing to do with the lawsuit.
