She also asserted she refrained from being open about knowing that Shannon’s ex-husband, David Beador, had been unfaithful prior to it becoming public knowledge.
“I protected your family. I knew David was having an affair, by the way, you knew David was having an affair, the world knew,’” stated Heather.
