Shannon Beador's friends are reportedly worried about the Real Housewives of Orange County star after a slew of public breakdowns.
According to a new report, the mother of three, who is currently exposing her weight gain on season 12, is in a "dark place" and friends of the reality star are said to be concerned about her odd behavior.
“Everyone is really starting to worry about Shannon,” an insider told Radar Online on Wednesday. “She is in a really dark place!”
During Monday night's shocking new episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Beador got into a fight with her co-star, Kelly Dodd, and picked up a plate and threw it across a crowded restaurant as her fellow reality star made her way out of the venue.
Then, during another scene from the same episode, she suffered a meltdown during what appeared to be a minor dispute with her newest co-star, Lydia McLaughlin.
“The real problem is that Shannon just thinks that being on the show is more important than her own physical and mental health,” the source added.
Currently, Beador is struggling to lose the 40 pounds she gained after allegedly stress eating due to the drama surrounding abuse claims made by Vicki Gunvalson during the 11th season of the show.
As fans may recall, Gunvalson claimed Beador's husband had become abusive towards her after his months-long affair but Beador denied any such thing.
In addition to chronicling her weight struggles on the show, Beador has also shared photos and updates with her fans on Instagram and recently posted a side-by-side photo of herself before and after her weight gain.
To see more of Shannon Beador and her co-stars, tune into The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 on Monday nights at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
