Shannon Beador says fights with boyfriend John Janssen are ‘paralyzing’

Shannon Beador once again confronted the production crew when her co-stars expressed their concerns about her relationship with John Janssen on the latest episode of “The Real Housewives of Orange County.” In frustration, Beador shouted, “We have a normal relationship! Does anyone care to come up and talk to me?” She insisted that she had only called Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter once in 2020 to discuss her relationship, despite their claims of multiple conversations. Beador tearfully expressed that her fights with Janssen were paralyzing her, and she felt frustrated that everyone was still talking about her. After the confrontation, Beador’s friends Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson tried to comfort her as they drove away in an SUV. Beador became upset when her co-stars, including Heather Dubrow, Kirschenheiter, and Simpson, expressed doubts about her on-again, off-again relationship with Janssen. She felt devastated by their comments and worried about how to discuss these judgments with Janssen, who values their privacy. Beador felt like she was being ambushed and shouted, “It’s a f-king spectacle!” Kirschenheiter reminded Beador that their concerns were just that, concerns, but Beador felt that she owed Janssen a huge apology for the situation. Beador stormed off, claiming that nobody understood her relationship, and that she had never been more in love. Simpson followed Beador and mentioned that Beador had confided in her about their relationship. While Beador insisted that her relationship was good, Simpson shared that Janssen had called Beador names and made derogatory comments about her appearance. Dubrow also revealed details about Beador’s relationship, including financial dynamics and Janssen’s living situation. Beador worried that Janssen would be upset when he found out about the discussions surrounding their private lives. Despite threats to leave, Beador rejoined her co-stars when she heard her name being mentioned again. Frustrated, she yelled that she didn’t have affairs or bad things happening, just arguments that paralyzed her. Finally, Beador exited through the front door, pleading with the production crew to stop filming and insisting that she wasn’t crazy. In November 2022, just one week after filming for “RHOC” wrapped, Janssen ended his four-year relationship with Beador due to constant bickering. They initially didn’t speak for months but have since reconnected, although Beador maintains that they are not back together, just very friendly. “The Real Housewives of Orange County” airs on Bravo on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET.

Shannon Beador once again confronted production when her co-stars began expressing their “concerns” over her relationship with John Janssen on Wednesday’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Orange County.”

“We have a normal relationship! Does anyone care to come up and talk to me?” Beador screamed while walking toward the production crew during the group’s “You Do Me and I Do You” party.

Beador vehemently insisted that she had called co-stars Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter “one time in 2020” to discuss her relationship — despite the two women claiming that there had been more times.

“I have normal fights with my boyfriend that paralyze me, and I have talked about that on camera, but everyone’s still talking about me!” Beador said in tears.

“I have normal fights with my boyfriend that paralyze me!” Beador cried to production.

“I’m gonna go home and figure out how to tell my private boyfriend that everyone is f–king talking about us and making judgments!”

Beador’s BFFs and co-stars Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson attempted to comfort her as she continued mumbling and wiping away tears. The three then packed into a black SUV and drove off.

“It’s a f–king spectacle!” Beador, 59, screamed in the car.

Beador lost her cool after Heather Dubrow, Kirschenheiter and Simpson started expressing their doubts about her much-talked about relationship with her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Janssen.

Beador began crying after her co-stars talked poorly about her relationship with Janssen.

“Now I’m gonna have to talk to John about this, and he’s gonna say, ‘You know how private I am. Why would you tell anybody anything about our relationship?’ And when we fight, it’s devastating to me,” Beador told Dubrow in a shaky voice.


Dubrow, 54, denied telling anyone that she thought their relationship was “bad,” but suggested she should take a closer look at some of the other women who she claimed were more “specific about you not having a good relationship.”

“It doesn’t matter, I’m not gonna do this in a group,” Beador said as she stood up and walked away.

“It’s a f-king spectacle!” she shouted.

Kirschenheiter, 39, chimed in to remind Beador that it’s just “a concern,” but that set Beador over the edge even more as she cried that she owes Janssen a “huge f–king apology.”

“Your boyfriend owes you a thousand apologies apparently for what everybody else is saying! They’re concerned about you, that’s all!” Kirschenheiter shouted back.

Beador continued to storm off and claimed that “nobody here knows anything about my relationship.” She added that she has “never been more in love” and that she’s “never hurt more when we’ve not been in a good spot.”

Beador claimed Gina Kirschenheiter owes Janssen a “huge f-king apology.”

“You guys enjoy having conversations about me. You don’t know, I’m f–king out!” Beador screamed, adding in a confessional that she was “getting f–king ambushed.”

Simpson, 47, followed Beador into the hallway and reminded her that she told her “a lot of things” months ago. Though Simpson didn’t specify what Beador had previously said.

“From what she has told me, I don’t feel like he’s invested in their relationship, and I feel like she’s wasting her time, and I feel like she can do better, and I’m just gonna leave it at that,” Simpson said in a confessional.

Emily Simpson alleged that Janssen has called Beador names and said that she’s fat or unattractive.

However, earlier in the night, Simpson told the group — while Beador was away — that Janssen allegedly “left [Beador] at Nobu” after they “got into this huge fight.”

“She’s trying to maintain a relationship publicly that she wants to look like it’s solid and perfect and amazing,” she added in a confessional. “He’s called her names and said that she’s fat or unattractive … I’m getting upset that someone would say that to a woman.”

Dubrow also took to her confessional to divulge some details Beador allegedly confided in her.

“My relationship with John is good. It’s good, except when we get in an argument, and people get in arguments,” Beador insisted.

“Shannon pays for everything, the family dynamic isn’t great, he’s never slept over, and his son lives with him, so she doesn’t go over there, ugh, I don’t wanna talk about it,” she said.

Meanwhile, Beador continued getting upset and cried that Janssen will be “done” with her after he finds out people have been discussing their “private business.”

“My relationship with John is good. It’s good, except when we get in an argument, and people get in arguments. It’s f–king natural!” she added.

Beador threatened to leave several times before storming over to the production crew.

“I’m gonna go. Everyone can talk about my relationship — I’m out,” Beador continued as she threatened to go back home. “Don’t make me look irrational, oh my god, I’m gonna go, my relationship’s over give yourself a pat on the back.”

Simpson, who was also emotional, told Beador that she wanted her to open up, so she can be her “f–king friend” and tell her “how bad” her relationship is.

“It’s not that bad! I have arguments! I’m gonna go, my relationship cannot be the topic of conversation with these people,” Beador repeated.

“I’m gonna go, my relationship cannot be the topic of conversation with these people,” she said before leaving.

Beador attempted to walk away and get her bag, but she quickly rejoined her co-stars when she heard her name yet again.

“You know what? I don’t have affairs, I don’t have bad s–t, I have arguments that paralyze me. I’m leaving,” Beador shouted before finally exiting through the front door.

As Beador walked from the house, she firmly told production, “OK, you guys, stop. Please stop with the camera, stop, I’m not a crazy person, stop!”

Just one week after filming for “RHOC” wrapped in November 2022, Janssen broke up with Beador after four years together.

“It was just a lot of bickering. There was no major [moment like], ‘Oh my God, you’ve got to walk away!’” Beador told TheFantasyTimes in June as part of our “24 Hours” video series.

The exes initially didn’t talk for months but have since reconnected. Beador, however, has maintained that the two are “not back together” — just “super, super friendly.”

“The Real Housewives of Orange County” airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
