Shannon Beador’s cheating ex-husband David’s new girlfriend, Lesley Cook, is one brazen chick — she’s now inserting herself in the middle of the former couple’s bitter divorce battle.
David, 53, is challenging the child custody, child support and spousal support requests from The Real Housewives of Orange County star, who filed for primary physical custody of their three daughters: Sophie Beador, 16, and twins Stella and Adeline, 13.
In documents filed on March 9, David says the reality star is “not fostering or encouraging a healthy father-child relationship.”
The disgruntled dad added, “While the children (Stella and Adeline) have resided with Shannon, since separation, the children, on several occasions have refused to talk or see me.”

To make matters worse — David’s girlfriend, Lesley has inserted herself into David and Shannon’s divorce drama by posting taunting messages on social media. On Thursday, Lesley posted the following message regarding David’s custody war.
The caption described Lesley’s relationship with the father of her two children.
“My ex & separated after 11 years together… He is an AWESOME father and I’m so happy we could both put our egos to the side and coparent peacefully for the sake of our little ones,” she wrote.
Lesley seemingly threw jabs at Shannon for allegedly tainting David’s image with his daughters and keeping them from seeing their dad.
“As hard as it is to not be with them 24/7 I also realize it’s in their best interest to have their father in their life. I may not agree with all of his life choices but I would never share that with them…. I respect him as their father.” Lesley continued.
To add insult to injury, Lesley ended her rant by advising Shannon to be happy that David has moved on with her.
“I would also love to set him up with someone amazing…. how crazy am I????? *rant over ❤❤”
David “liked” Lesley’s Instagram post, before the post was quickly deleted.
This is not the first time Lesley has flaunted their romance publicly. On Valentine’s day, David’s new girlfriend took to Instagram to show off their red-hot love affair and continues to do so on a regular basis.
