After 23 months of marriage, RHOC (The Real Housewives of Orange County) alum David Beador has filed for divorce from his second wife Lesley. Beador, who has a $20 million net worth, filed for divorce claiming “irreconcilable disagreements.” According to TMZ, David filed on Thursday, September 15, and put their divorce date as the same. The couple has a 19-month-old daughter named Anna Love Beador, for whom David is apparently seeking shared physical and legal custody.
David took careful to sign a prenup agreement before marrying Lesley, and as a result, he is not required to pay spousal support to the former. The fate of the couple’s properties in Orange County and Salt Lake City will be decided during the trial.
Beador’s document reads as follows:
“At the time of trial or settlement, the true nature and amount of Petitioner’s distinct property will be ascertained.” Given the brief duration of the marriage, there are only minimal community property assets and obligations. T
here is a Prenuptial Agreement in force as of October 9, 2020.”
David and Lesley got engaged in January 2020 and married the following October. They had their baby in early 2021, barely four months later. Lesley is 20 years David’s junior and has two children from a previous marriage.

David Beador, is an American entrepreneur and company owner residing in Newport Beach, with a net worth of $20 million. He is the creator and owner of Beador Construction Inc. in California, which supposedly produces $13 million in income each year. The 57-year-old businessman was previously married to RHOC star Shannon Beador, but they divorced in 2017 after 17 years together. In 2019, the couple formalized their divorce. Sophie, 20, and Stella and Adeline, 18-year-old twin twins, are the former couple’s three kids.
Shannon told People in 2018 that she felt “stronger” without him a year after they announced their breakup. She stated:
“After I split from David, I attempted to self-reflect and figure out the changes I wanted to make in myself by remaining at home, not going out, and not doing much of anything.” What kind of person do I aspire to be? So many other women who are standing on their own encourage me. It’s tough out there. And they support me.”
RHOC alum David allegedly paid Shannon $1.4 million in a settlement, as well as $7,065 in monthly spousal maintenance and $2,935 in monthly child support. Shannon and David’s turbulent relationship and eventual breakup played out across multiple seasons of RHOC. From 2014 to 2017, he appeared in 60 episodes of the reality show.
The ex-couple moved into a 13,306 square foot estate with an eco-friendly seven-bedroom in 2012. David and Shannon listed their 10.5-bathroom house for over $16 million a year later, in 2013. They then relisted the four-story mansion in February 2016 for $10.898 million, and it eventually sold for $9.05 million two months later.
Following their divorce, the former couple went on and found love again. Shannon met John Janssen in 2019 and has been dating him since then. Meanwhile, David fell in love with Lesley in 2018, only to end their relationship this week.
Season 17 of RHOC is presently in production, with Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson, Tamra, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Heather Dubrow serving as the show’s major cast members.
