shannon beador reached a “turning point” in her life during Monday night's new episode of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" and decided that she was no longer going to allow the stressful moments of her marriage to David Beador impact her personal happiness. According to a recap of the show shared by People magazine on October 16, Beador's "Ah ha" moment took place during a conversation with her longtime co-star and friend, Tamra Judge.

“Either the relationship is going to improve, or the relationship isn’t," Beador explained to Judge. "I cannot let it affect my happiness.” According to Beador, she was having issues with her husband but she didn't want to throw a pity party for herself, nor did she want to portray herself as a victim.

Still, she added, she was feeling sad and detached from her husband, which led her to think of his affair much more.
