Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador shocked fans when she was involved in a hit-and-run DUI this month, but her close pal Jeff Lewis does not believe she is an alcoholic.
“John’s semi-retired, so he can stay up till midnight, two o’clock in the morning every night if he wants and I think she kind of goes along with it when, you know, maybe she wants to go home at  and stop at one drink. She feels like she has fun with John. She loves John. He wants to go out to another place, or he wants to do karaoke and she goes along with it, but then I think she regrets it the next day,” Jeff he said on Jeff Lewis Live.
Jeff has been checking in on Shannon to make sure she is doing okay. Shannon is preparing to enter rehab.
“She is in a temporary location, cute little condo right on the water, but there’s zero privacy. Zero, and there’s paparazzi all over her right now. She can’t even walk Archie,” he added.Shannon was arrested for driving under the influence and hitting a residential property, before fleeing the scene in her car and parking it in the middle of the street. When the cops arrived, she was allegedly pretending like she was walking her dog, Archie.
