Kelly Dodd and Shannon Beador are reportedly bonding over their marital troubles.
Days after Dodd confirmed that she and her husband, Michael Dodd, were putting an end to their marriage after 11 years, a source claims the Real Housewives of Orange County star has grown close to Beador, who is allegedly experiencing marriage problems of her own with David Beador.
“Surprisingly, after all the drama between the two of them this season, Shannon and Kelly are actually leaning on each other for support right now,” a source close to Dodd told Radar Online on October 5. “Shannon knows what Kelly is going through because both of them are stuck in miserable marriages that just aren’t working!”
Prior to Dodd's divorce announcement, rumors began swirling in regard to her troubles with Michael and according to one claim, police were called to their Newport Beach, California home a whopping 11 times in just one year.
As for Beador, she is allegedly at her breaking point with David, who infamously cheated on her years ago with a younger woman.
“The only difference between Michael and David is that David is fame hungry and Michael isn’t,” the source told Radar. “But Shannon knows what Kelly is going through and they both also share the common love of alcohol. Since the season wrapped, the two of them have been hanging out and David cannot stand that fact that his wife is hanging out with Kelly because he thinks she is just awful.”
