Original story (12/4/17 at 12:50 p.m. ET): 

Shannon Beador’s marriage is officially over.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star filed for divorce from her husband, David Beador, just one month after they announced their separation.

The mother of three broke the news of their split during the RHOC reunion taping last month.

According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, the 53-year-old filed “dissolution with child” papers on Friday, December 1.

She is going for full custody of their three kids and is trying to work out a spousal and child support arrangement.

David infamously had a secret affair in 2015 and the aftermath was documented on the Bravo show.

Though they seemed to be able to work through it — and even renewed their vows — it ultimately wasn’t enough.

“When we filmed the reunion we had been separated for five weeks and there was a part of me that thought finally getting it out there would be a sense of relief but in actuality, it made it official and it made it real so I’ve been having good days and bad days,” she said on Watch What Happens Live.

The former pair was married for 17 years before deciding to breakup.

“Last week I saw he took his wedding ring and that’s inevitable. It’s just making the adjustment,” she continued.

“No more downer. It had to happen. Good times ahead.”

Shannon announced the split in a statement and revealed she was not happy in her marriage.

“It’s heartbreaking for me and my daughters that this is the road that had to be taken but it’s the only way,” she shared.

“I felt alone in my marriage. You can do what you can to keep your family together, but you have to have willing parties.”

She continued, “You need two people to make a marriage work, and that just wasn’t happening in our relationship.”

Onwards and upwards, Shannon!
