Shannon Beador and her ex-husband have reached a boiling point in their battle over their minor daughter's appearances on "The Real Housewives of Orange County."
In short, she wants the girl's lives documented in front of cameras, whereas he doesn't.
Shannon, who shares three daughters with David Beador (two of whom are under 18,) filed emergency documents in court asking a judge to allow her two 17-year-old daughters to continue filming the reality TV show, The Blast reported.
In the filing, Shannon says Bravo is ready to begin filming the show but wants access to the teens and her house.
"The filming of the Show is my primary career and is part of and supportive of my primary income source, for which I use said income to care for my children. If my children do not film on the show, I will be in violation of my contract and will lose my job, and thus my ability to earn income," she said.
The longtime "Housewives" star also included a letter from show producers in which they say Shannon would get the axe if cameras can't roll freely inside the home.
"Quite simply, then, without any access to Shannon's children, we are not able to document Shannon's life, and therefore she will not have satisfied the contingencies in her agreement with us and we will not be able to have her on the show going forward," the letter said.
David, though, believes the minor girl's involvement in the show could have ramifications in regard to his new marriage. While he does admit that he allowed the girls to participate in the show in year's past, he claims things are "much different" now. David argues that he wants to "protect and not expose" his "new family" to reality TV.
"My current wife also has two other children of her own that do not need to have their mother exposed to possible disparaging comments made about our family on national television," he says in the legal docs.
In the event that Shannon stays on as a "Housewives" cast member, David is insisting that she make no disparaging comments about him or his wife on the show.
"I find it very troubling that these proposed limitations are not acceptable with the (Shannon) and/or her counsel considering the fact that (Shannon) and I both have joint legal custody. It is also concerning to me that these narrowly tailored limitations are not acceptable with the (Shannon) and/her counsel because it gives me the feeling that she does in fact intend on referencing either myself, my new wife, and our new daughter during the filming of this 16th season. This Is absolutely not acceptable to me," he wrote.
