'Real Housewives of Orange County' Star Shannon Beador on Fixing Her Marriage: 'We're In Such a Happy Place'

ETonline sat down with Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador to talk all about season 10, which heavily features the aftermath of her husband David's affair. Viewers have seen the couple in therapy, and the emotional talks about the future of their marriage. 

"Well, it's hard," Beador said of watching the episodes, which were filmed months ago. "I thought that I would be able to handle it a little bit better. Some days I'm a little bit bummed about it. But bottom line is, it's what happened in my life. If I'm on this show, I'm gonna show what's happening in my life."

"I'm a confident person," Beador continued. "And I don't like to see myself when I'm crying or in a weakened state. That's not who I am, but I focus on the positive and where my husband and I are today and where my family is today, and we're in such a happy place. So, that's what it's all about."

Beador told ETonline she and her husband are spending more time together and with their three daughters. "I just got back from New York -- a trip alone with my husband!" Beador said. "We go to church every week ...  He's spending more time at home. It's all good."

The couple also has weekly date nights, which viewers recently got to see on the show. Beador called their "touching" Valentine's date this season her favorite Housewives moment so far. 

"My husband doesn't cry," Beador said of the scene. "He cried for the first time when we put our dog down. I saw him cry the second time at the couples' retreat when he broke down, and the third time he welled up with tears was at our Valentine's Day dinner. And at that moment when I saw him tear up, I knew that we were gonna make it as a husband and wife."

But Beador's least favorite Housewives moment also comes from this season -- the golf cart fight she had with David while the cast was at a winery for co-star Heather Dubrow's Collette launch. "Oh my god," Beador said. "That golf cart fight -- that pisses me off."

You can see more of Beador -- and her unfiltered opinions -- Monday nights at 9 p.m. EST, when The Real Housewives of Orange County airs on Bravo.
