The mistress of Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Shannon Beador’s husband has been revealed, just in time for the couple’s 15th wedding anniversary — and she gives Glenn Close a run for her money.
According to the Daily Mail, the woman David Beador was having an affair with was also married — and she went out of her way to befriend an unsuspecting Shannon at their children’s basketball games.
David reportedly began sleeping with Nicole McMackin after meeting her at an elite business club called the Young Presidents Organization in 2013. Their eight-month-long affair took place in hotel rooms in and around Newport Beach, California.
McMackin is the president of Irvine Technology Corp, providing IT solutions, and is married to Reed McMackin, vice president at Pan-Pacific Mechanical. David owns Beador Construction.
While the Beadors have been open about the affair and their recovery from it on The Real Housewives of Orange County this season, one highly disturbing detail has been left out: McMackin was practically stalking Shannon and purposely put her daughter on the same basketball team as Shannon’s and tried to befriend her.
“It turns out that Nicole purposely put her kid on Shannon’s daughter’s basketball team, a team that David coaches,” a source told the Daily Mail. “The whole thing is upsetting for a lot of different reasons.
“They began talking during games and Nicole would ask her how her relationship was going. It just seems really underhanded and manipulative, almost as if she was probing for info to use to break them up. Or maybe she was just feeling guilty.”
For her part, Shannon is letting the public knowledge of the mistress’ name roll off her back and is focusing on her marriage milestone instead: her 15-year wedding anniversary.
