The "real" Shannon Beador isn't hawking diet pills, and that's exactly why she's filed a lawsuit against the social media king.
The "Real Housewives of Orange County" star is reportedly suing Facebook after she claims third-party companies used her name and likeness to promote their diet pill brands on the social media platform, TMZ reported.
In court records obtained by the webloid, Shannon argues that 15 different vendors — on both Facebook and Instagram (which Facebook owns) — have used her images as before-and-after shots to hawk their products, all of which imply that she endorses the diet pills, which she doesn't.
The reality TV star argues that the claims are affecting her career and compromising her ability to endorse brands she actually uses and likes.
Shannon's weight has been a topic of discussion among "Housewives" fans for years, and she hasn't shied away from the chatter. In 2017, she openly spoke of her 40 pound weight gain.
"Gaining weight and trying to take it off is a struggle that most women will face at some point in their lives," the mother of three wrote on social media at the time. "I am hopeful that my fans and viewers of the show will be supportive of my journey. I am very grateful and thankful to those people that have already reached out to me with their kind thoughts. ❤️ Let the season begin…"
In 2019, she revealed that she dropped the 40 pounds and created her own healthy food line.
