Shannon Beador says she’s ready to get back in fighting shape.

“I've gained a lot of weight,” The Real Housewives of Orange County star confesses. “There are a lot of haters out there that say, 'Oh, it's because she's so upset and her marriage isn't doing well.' This is happy fat!”

“This is fat that comes about when you eat whatever you want when you're going out to eat with your husband and your family,” she explains, “and when you have a few cocktails. This is what happens.”

“I am working with Dr. Tim, who was on the show last season with me,” the star shares. “We are doing Facebook Live videos three times a week, and they're not crazy hard, but we're gonna get there.”

“It's nice because a lot of people watch live, and they ask questions,” Shannon adds. “The last time we did it, people were saying, 'I've lost eight pounds, I've lost 10 pounds, I've lost 17 pounds.' It's crazy.”

Shannon started streaming her workouts around the time season 11 of RHOC premiered, stepping on the scale for all the world to see. The reality star weighed in at 148.8 pounds, with 32.6 percent body fat.

“[So far], I've lost one pound, but I've lost seven percent body fat,” Shannon says. “I've got a reunion to film in October. That's my due day to get better. To get slimmer again. And I will.”
