The Real Housewives of Orange County is facing a huge production nightmare after Shannon Beador's homeowner's association decided to make life very difficult.

Beador lives in the exclusive Crystal Cove neighborhood, and she and her husband David put their giant mansion on the market for $12.99 million before news of his extramarital affair broke. When the home failed to sell and the couple reconciled, they removed the listing, but just put it back on the MLS for a greatly reduced price of $10.898 million.

If the marriage is staying intact, why are they selling? Sounds like it might have something to do with the neighborhood homeowner's association.

Sources tell Tamra Tattles that Beador's neighbors in Newport Beach have begun complaining about Bravo's cameras and production trucks in the area and as a result, the HOA enacted a new rule banning "big production" filming in Crystal Cove, effective Jan. 1, 2016.

But it is not only the Beadors who are affected by the new ruling. Remember, Heather Dubrow and her husband are building a palatial new mansion there as well — it is Dubrow's main storyline at the moment. This definitely throws a monkey wrench into the huge housewarming party she was planning to film for later in the season.

Is the HOA's dastardly move worth a $5 million drop in price for the Beador's home? Possibly, if they are now in a bigger rush to get out of there. The four-story home is 13,306 square feet featuring six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms (yes, you read that right), a subterranean indoor basketball half-court, a piano room, a panic room converted into a children's tea room, a pool, putting green, underground parking for 11 cars, an elevator and a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest house.

The entire property was built with nontoxic materials, including solid wood paneling, clean-air technology, a purified water system and organic wallpaper.

Can't wait to see what their new house looks like — if the RHOC cameras are allowed into that neighborhood!
