shannon beador is getting backlash after posting a photo of her three daughters on Instagram. The image shows Sophie, 16, and 12-year-old twins, Stella and Adeline, dressed in Halloween costumes Tuesday night. Many thought the photo shared by, "The Real Housewives of Orange County," star was inappropriate.

Halloween costumes ruffle feathers

Shannon's daughters dressed up as Cher, a bear, and an alien. Some were offended by the costumes, ranting that Shannon should've known better than to post such revealing images of her minor children. One commented that it's not just the skimpiness of their costumes, but Shannon should've considered the fact there are perverted people out there preying on young children.

Others debated Beador's judgment as a parent while voicing their opposition to the photo.

There were a few supporters as well. Not everyone thought Shannon Beador's daughters wore revealing costumes and they slammed people for criticizing the "RHOC" star's parenting. Sophie, Stella, and Adeline received a number of compliments for being such beautiful girls, crediting Shannon for their good looks.

Shannon splits from husband

Shannon Beador announced last Friday that she's separating from her husband of 17 years, David Beador. Since news came of the split, Shannon has been seen in recent photos looking better than she has in the last year with a slimmer figure. She also looks happier and is ready to get back on track in her life after trying to no avail to save her marriage.

Fans have witnessed the heartache and uphill battle on "RHOC" that Shannon has fought to stay with David.

In spite of their split, Shannon expressed, in her statement, that she and David will remain committed to raising their three daughters as best they can. Will this mean they'll go the Ben Affleck-Jennifer Garner route in getting together on occasions for the sake of giving their kids family time?

It seems to be a trend in the Hollywood set, but not everyone is up to the task. From the sounds of this split, Shannon and David are trying to stay away from each other. David moved out of their mansion a few weeks ago and is living in a rented condo. There's even a report out by Radar Online that he's already started dating other women.

Do you think it was wrong of Shannon Beador to post the photo of her daughters in their Halloween costumes? Are they too revealing?

"The Real Housewives of Orange County" airs Monday nights on Bravo at 9 PM, ET / 6 PM, PT.
