David came out swinging with claims that the Real Housewives of Orange County star made hundreds of thousands more than him last year.
According to David, Shannon earned over $801,378 for 2018 and was paid an additional $238,500 from his Beador Construction company (which was court ordered). He believes she pulled in between $1.35 and $1.4 million in total for the year.
David stated that Shannon made additional money that has yet to be accounted for from her promotional appearances on QVC and other sponsorship deals, including making $16,000 from FabFit.
He claims that Shannon already signed on for the upcoming season of Real Housewives of Orange County and her new contract will result in an increase in pay for another $75,000 – $100,000 a year.
The court documents revealed that in 2018, Shannon was paid $583,338 for Season 13 of the Bravo reality show and also got a $31,500 check for money owed from season 12.
David wanted the current support order to be recalculated as he declared to have only earned $495,000 in 2018.
David Beador currently pays her $22,500 of temporary child and spousal support monthly, and Shannon is requesting that he has visitation rights only and joint legal custody of their kids.
She filed docs in response revealing she spends $30,235 a month on bills (including $12k on rent, $2,300 on groceries, $1,625 on eating out, $5k on education for her kids and $5k on entertainment/vacations). She claims to owe the IRS and State of California an unknown amount in taxes, $65k to her lawyers and $24k on a credit card.
In addition, Shannon stated that she estimates a tax bill in the amount of $275k, along with substantial expenses in connection with developing and marketing for her “Real for Real” food line.
The judge denied David’s motion to lower support, noting the issue will be heard during the trial in April.
