If you’ve been watching Real Housewives of Orange County recently, you’ve seen how good Shannon Beador has been looking! The blonde beauty spoke with Life & Style exclusively about how she’s been maintaining her new slim figure — and how her boyfriend, John Janssen, supports her healthier lifestyle.

“I’m working on it,” the 55-year-old said of her weight loss strides at the Vanderpump Dog Foundation Gala on November 21. “It’s diet. I’d say 99 percent diet. But you can eat healthy and it still taste good. I just want to be at a healthy balance.”

Plus, her new man is really encouraging when it comes to getting in the gym. “We go to the same trainer,” the insurance broker, 56, revealed. “We need to maybe step it up a little bit,” Shannon added with a laugh. “Gaining a few happy pounds! But that’s all good.”

We all know how a little happy relationship weight can sneak up on you, so it’s great to see Shan so positive. Plus, she’s even got her diet planned out for the upcoming holiday parties and events down the line.

So, do you hold off on all the delicious holiday delectables at the next function? In Shannon’s view, the answer is definitely n-o. “You don’t!” she dished. “You go and you eat the cake and the candy and that’s OK because you’re going to make good choices other days.”

Back in March, the RHOC star started really showing off her new physique on Instagram — and needless to say, fans were totally on board with the reality star’s new bod. But the process started a few years prior for Shannon. Back in 2017, she revealed she was working with nutritionist and trainer Dr. Tim Ramierz. The Bravo babe said she was drinking 310 Shakes when she didn’t “have time to sit down for a meal” and did 30 minutes of exercise a day.

According to the starlet, her feud with costar Vicki Gunvalson was the source of her weight gain back in 2017. She told Life & Style exclusively that she “put on 40 pounds in eight months” after they stopped being pals. “I ate and I drank and I was such a mess,” she said. Well, it seems as though Shannon is on a better path now. You go, girl!
