We got introduced to newbie Shannon Beador on this week's Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 premiere. Now, Shannon is explaining why she acted the way she did. 

Shannon says that watching herself on the show has made her realize that she can be a bit too harsh on her husband. "As I watch myself, however, I am mortified to see how much I nag and criticize him," she writes in her Bravo blog. "Note to self — I need to show him more of positive Shannon and get rid of the negative Shannon!"

Shannon also explains why she doesn't let her kids have cell phones. "My oldest daughter Sophie is only 12 and will obviously be using a cell phone at some point soon because it is essential for safety, but why now?" Shannon adds. "If she really needs to speak to her friends, we have phones in our home. End of discussion."

It's interesting that Shannon realizes that she needs to lighten up when talking to her husband. We wish her the best this season, and we look forward to getting to know her family even better.
