Anyone who saw the most recent episode of Real Housewives of Orange County was probably a bit concerned about Shannon Beador's marriage to David, given their tension at the dinner party. However, Shannon now says that appearing on the show is improving their relationship.

Shannon and fellow cast newbie Lizzie Rovsek appeared on Access Hollywood this week, where Shannon was asked what it's like for herself and David to see themselves bickering on the show. 

"It's really difficult, but I have to say it's a blessing because to watch yourself and go yikes — y'know, I nag or I do that sort of thing — it's something that I can go back and work on and hopefully improve," Shannon admits. "Our relationship is actually improving because of the show."

So what do Shannon and David say to each other after watching the episode? "We're kind of laughing at it now because we do have this banter but a lot of people don't understand it - we're both sarcastic with each other," she explains. "But we're able to laugh at it and say we're working on it and we're trying to improve in these areas where there are clearly issues."

We wish Shannon and David all the best in their marriage moving forward. And let's hope David remembers not to touch Shannon's lemons.
