Shannon Beador revealed on Friday that she and her three daughters have all tested positive for the Coronavirus but they are doing okay so far.
While filming was shut down in many places for extended periods of time, The Real Housewives of Orange County was one of the first franchises to start back up again. Shannon Beador had the ladies over to her house, and just last week, Gina Kirschenheiter said the group was going on a trip together while quarantining.
But on Saturday, Shannon took to her Instagram to say that she and all three of her daughters, Sophie, Stella, and Adeline had all tested positive for the Coronavirus. Gina’s post about the RHOC trip was only ten days ago, so it isn’t clear when exactly Shannon got sick – but hopefully, no one else in the group contracted the virus. It was speculated that Shannon and Emily Simpson opted out of going on the trip to Lake Arrowhead.
Shannon said that she and the girls are all staying in the same house, but in separate rooms. She also thanked those medical professionals who helped them.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke left some hearts in the comments, and her mother, Dr. Deb, offered to bring them food if needed. The comments were mostly positive, besides some others that criticized Shannon and the other ladies for being reckless.
Shannon has always been a bit obsessed with health, including her alternative medicine doctor, Dr. Moon. Dr. Moon and his “energy medicine center” were frequently featured on the show in Shannon’s earlier seasons.
Meanwhile, Kelly Dodd said that the coronavirus was God’s way of “thinning the herd.” I wonder how Shannon feels about those comments now?
This season of RHOC is certainly going to be different, and inevitably choppy with the timeline of things. Perhaps Bravo will acknowledge the virus and show how the ladies spent their time in quarantine. Or, perhaps, they’ll just ignore it altogether. Only time will tell!
Get well soon, Shannon, Sophia, Stella, and Adeline!
