Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador’s ex-husband David has traded the reality star in for a younger model as he moves on with a hot blonde 34-year-old named Lesley Cook.
According to sources, the new lovebirds are heating up and not trying to hide their feelings for each other any longer.
David, 54, was dating “Several women” immediately following his split with Shannon, 53, according to multiple sources.
However, that all changed before Christmas, when he started dating Lesley. In an adorable photo posted to the mother-of-two’s Instagram account, she thanked her fit new man for helping her with a workout. After David told his blonde beauty, “You did awesome,” she commented, “thank you for the encouragement. Your energy and determination is contagious!”
As RHOC fans know, David and Shannon’s favorite spot to dine at was The Montage in Laguna Beach! Lesley, a DIY blogger and Orange County native accompanied David to the eatery two days after Christmas. “Looking great #discrete,” David wrote. David has since deleted all of his comments from Lesley’s page.
As Shannon was ringing in the New Year with BFF Tamra Judge, David had a hot date with Lesley! In another photo, he wrote, “Looking good. Someone is getting lucky tonight! #Discrete #HappyNewYear.”
It seems that David and Lesley wasted no time in getting to know each other. Lesley captioning another photo, “She’s running around saying, this is a dream house.” David took it a step further and wrote, “ I heard Park City in Feb is nice also if you like the snow,” to which she responded can’t wait to race #NOTdiscrete.”
According to the source, David’s ex Shannon Knows about the romance, and is “devastated.”
Couples who sweat together, stay together. Just one month ago, Lesley and David took their workouts to a new level and made sure to comment back and forth about their lovey-dovey workout session!
But the icing on the cake came just a couple of weeks ago, when David and Lesley jetted off to Las Vegas together. Although he deleted all of his comments from this photo that she posted from the concert, he originally wrote, “was this before or after we ‘bumped’ into one another? I don’t remember meeting your date strangely enough… maybe he was holding your shoes in back as you said your feet hurt. #roulettequeen&wannabeking #love” Lesley confirmed tat he was her true date and commented, “I think you were holding my shoes, weren’t you?”
Two days before attending the concert, Lesley posted a photo of her new boyfriend.
When Lesley posted a photo that said, “Keep the soul lit,” David commented, “Once we dig deep enough and THROW AWAY THE CRAP (PAST) that’s in our way to understand our soul, you definitely need to keep it lit. Best with an amazing partner.”
