Shannon Beador recently went through a split with her boyfriend John Janssen

Shannon was "devastated" & "blindsided" by the breakup, which happened one week after filming Real Housewives of Orange County season 17.

John claims the decision to end the relationship was "super hard" and that he realized they wouldn't go the distance

He also explains that he didn't want to humiliate Shannon on camera so he waited until filming was done

Both Shannon and John still have strong feelings for each other and believe the other person to be a good person

Shannon is going to the Golden Door health and wellness retreat in Escondido, California for a fresh start

She visited the same retreat in 2016 during relationship turmoil with her ex-husband

Shannon believes the retreat will provide her with perspective and healing to start the next chapter

The Real Housewives of Orange County season 17 is expected to premiere on Bravo later this year.
