The Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador was allegedly “removed” from a bar in California earlier this month after getting drunk and “screaming” at ex-boyfriend John Janssen‘s daughter!
According to Page Six insiders on Thursday, the drama went down at Tiki Bar in Costa Mesa, where the reality star was hanging out with a group of people, including her ex and his family. They did not provide a specific date for the incident, just that it happened sometime this July.
It’s unclear what happened, but an eyewitness told the Instagram account @igfamousbydana that Shannon went “wild” and appeared to be “wasted” as she yelled at Janssen’s daughter. She then “had to be held back and removed by security.” Yikes!
Page Six also claims to have seen several photos from the incident in which security guards could be seen dragging an upset Shannon off the premises (though they don’t appear to have been published). Her ex and his family weren’t in the photos, but a source said they “remained calm” throughout the incident. Oh no, are they used to it??
Innerestingly, a source for the Bravolebrity isn’t denying something went down at the establishment — but they claim it wasn’t all on Shannon. The insider confirmed an “argument” occurred between “multiple people” in the group and that “everyone was screaming at each other.”
That said, they claim Shannon wasn’t escorted out for being problematic — they were all simply “asked to leave” because “the night was done” and “the lights were on.” John even backed up this theory in his own statement, telling the outlet:
“Yes, there was an argument, but it was at the end of the night, the lights were up, and everyone was being asked to leave.”
Also, Shannon posted a photo of a get-together on her social media accounts on Thursday night, and all she had to say about the evening was that she had a “great dinner.” She doesn’t look disheveled or drunk either! It’s not entirely clear if this photo was taken earlier during the dinner in question or at a different outing altogether, but it was posted shortly after Page Six‘s report. So either way, it seems to be a reaction to the controversy!

But what about the photos of Shannon and the guards? Well, sources claimed they were merely helping the TV star find her Uber because she wasn’t wearing her glasses. Uhhh, why weren’t her friends helping her?? Seems a lil sus!
If you don’t know, John dumped Shannon in November 2022 following nearly four years of dating (though they waited until January to announce the split). He claimed their constant “bickering” was something he “couldn’t get past.” Guess some things never change!
They were seemingly on much better terms last month when he showed up to support his ex at her Tres Amigas improv show with Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson. Beador said at the time via Page Six:
“We didn’t speak for six months, but we’re friendly right now, and I’d like to keep it that way. We’ll see how it goes. He’s very supportive.”
Also, this brouhaha comes just after this week’s episode of RHOC teased drama for Shannon and John. In a scene, the Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce alum begged co-star Heather Dubrow not to disclose information about her relationship while on camera because it could “destroy everything.” The scene will continue next week.
Wonder if that had anything to do with this supposedly drunken rant? And why was John’s daughter dragged into it?! Guess we’ll have to wait and see!
Reactions?! Let us know (below)!
