Shannon Beador has responded to David’s request to the court that he filed recently. On Wednesday, December 19th, Shannon filed the following response, “There was no legitimate reason for the Respondent to file a custody related Request for Order because all issues including child custody are already set for trial on April 22, 2019.”
Furthermore, “I am informed and believe, based on his communication with me, (and sometimes his refusal to communicate) that the respondent is deeply angry with me and was looking to hurt and embarrass me. His Request for Order was apparently designed to attract media attention and assert control.” This is exactly what you guys said in the comments section for the post about David’s request.
Shannon’s statement continued, “The term to which respondent refers (and mis-characterizes) “self-medicate” was used during frank conversations about the breakdown of our marriage and the issues precipitating it; the conversation was filmed for the television show of which I have been a cast member for five years. At no time did I use the term “self-medicating” or say I was abusing alcohol.” On the reunion everyone one admitted to self-medicating with alcohol from time to time. Except for Shannon.
Finally she admits some of her struggles and poor choices and points out that David doesn’t take accountability for anything, “Respondent is basing his request on a moment of a TV show that has been edited for entertainment purposes. In real life, I have been making a handful of poor choices over the last year-and-a-half, but I have taken responsibility for my mistakes and admitted to them with our children, their therapist and my therapist. The same cannot be said about the Respondent’s accountability.”
I believe that I read somewhere that the judge did set a date in January to address David’s request. Do you think the judge will grant David’s motion?
