Shannon Beador Gave Her Opinion About John Janssen’s New Relationship in December 2023
Beador shared her thoughts regarding Janssen’s decision to pursue Bellino in a December 2023 interview with E! News. She stated she found the situation perplexing as Janssen did not seem interested in being a Bravo personality when they were dating.
“I’ve been hurt a lot in the last couple of weeks because, No. 1, John said that he didn’t want to be in the public eye, and he’s thrust himself more into the public eye at this point. So, I’m quite confused about that,” said Beador.
The mother of three also noted that she was involved in a lawsuit with Bellino’s ex-husband, Jim Bellino, which was “financially and emotionally” draining.
“John is very well aware of a lawsuit that I was involved in with Jim Bellino, and Alexis was involved in that lawsuit. I was financially and emotionally devastated for years. And I won. But it devastated me financially. And I’m a single mom. John’s aware of that,” stated the Real for Real founder.

Before verifying that she and Janssen did not just have a platonic relationship, Bellino mentioned the father of three during an Access Hollywood interview in December 2023. She stated that she did not feel guilty about spending time with Janssen, as she does not have a relationship with Beador.
“I’ve never met Shannon, I’ve never filmed with Shannon. I’ve never been her friend. I do not owe her anything,” stated Bellino.
She clarified that she does not wish any ill will toward Beador.
The 47-year-old also suggested she would be interested in starring on RHOC again. She stated, however, that being a Bravo personality is not her top priority.
According to Page Six, a photographer caught Bellino shooting an RHOC season 18 scene in late January 2024.
