How does RHOC Shannon Beador’s ex-husband, David, earn a residing to fulfill the month-to-month upkeep funds of $ 22,500?
It was clear that Shannon and David Beador were leading adorable lives when they made their debut on The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Their 13,306-square-foot house was equipped with a panic room, an indoor basketball court, an underground car park and a piano room, reports the Orange Country Register. The house also has “solid wood paneling, organic wallpapers, clean air technology and a purified water system”.
But when David cheated on Shannon and the couple could not overcome the infidelity, they separated. The house went on sale for $ 16 million, but the Beadors took in $ 9.05 million, according to the OC Register. And while $ 9 million is a decent piece of change, the couple struggled to keep their keep during their divorce.
In the end, Shannon was given joint custody of her three daughters and $ 22,500 a month in child and spouse support, People reports. Given that some people make $ 22,500 a year, how is it possible that David Shannon is paying that much every month? And does she really need all that money?
David wasn’t happy about alimony
Originally, David was asked to pay Shannon $ 30,000 a month, People reports. However, Shannon and her lawyer negotiated with David, who represented himself, down to $ 22,500. A source close to the couple said David “trembled with anger” and “spat shame on Shannon.” In addition, the payments would bankrupt his company.
According to People, the support payments “Payments are without prejudice and can be changed retrospectively until December 1, 2017, the date Shannon filed for divorce.” And, “If the support order is more than $ 22,500 per month, David owes Shannon additional support for the period; If the order is less than $ 22,500 per month, Shannon will be billed for the excess support she received. “
Where does David work?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, David is a co-owner and founder of Beador Construction, Inc. In 1996, he and his father founded the company, which currently has around 80 employees. The company handles civil engineering projects such as motorway, road and bridge construction. In addition, residential and commercial buildings. Celebrity Net Worth reports that the company has sales of approximately $ 13 million per year.
David’s net worth is around $ 20 million, reports Celebrity Net Worth. He made about $ 179,432 a month in 2016 pre-taxed by Beador Construction Inc., Daily Mail reports.
Because of this, $ 22,500 a month may not be enough for Shannon
According to the divorce papers, Shannon spends double what she receives on alimony, the Daily Mail reports. Shannon reportedly spends about $ 55,355 a month. This includes $ 12,000 rent, $ 10,000 for “entertainment, gifts, and vacations,” and $ 9,000 for charity. She also spends $ 3,225 on a nanny and $ 12,500 on housekeeping and laundry every month.
Shannon also spent about $ 17,274 on “film prep” in 2016 and has $ 13,400 in bank accounts to which she has access.
Shannon could soon become a breadwinner
After her divorce, she launched her new low-calorie food line. The ready meals made their debut at QVC under the “Real for Real Cuisine” brand. The line offers prepared meals with 450 calories or less, People reports.
Aside from her business, Shannon makes $ 423,205.80 from RHOC and endorsements, according to The Blast. This number comes from court documents from the 2017 filings.
