It seems the ladies of “Real Housewives of Orange County” are litigious.
Shannon Beador is reportedly suing Facebook after third-party companies allegedly used her name and likeness to promote their diet pill brands.
According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Thursday, the 56-year-old reality star claims at least 15 different vendors have used her images as before-and-after shots to sell their products.
Shannon is suing for an undisclosed amount of damages and reportedly wants a judicial order stating the companies won’t wrongfully use her name and likeness to hawk their goods again.
The mother of three has been very public about her struggles with her weight since she filed for divorce from now-ex-husband David Beador in 2017.
However, in 2019, Shannon proudly revealed she had dropped 40 pounds and even created a healthy food line in the process — not diet pills.
“I’ve had an internal roller coaster of a weight issue,” she told Page Six in 2018. “I’d lose a bunch of weight and then I’d say, ‘OK, now I’m going to eat what I want because I’m tired of starving myself.’ I don’t want to deprive myself anymore.”
A rep for Shannon declined to comment on the lawsuit. A spokesperson for Facebook could not immediately be reached for comment.
News of Shannon taking legal action comes just shortly after her co-star Heather Dubrow sent “RHOC” alum Kelly Dodd a cease-and-desist letter for claiming Shannon’s son gave her COVID-19.
The former “Housewife,” 45, said on her Instagram Story earlier this week, “I got this letter from an attorney for the Dubrow family reminding me I made a statement that may sound like truth, when in fact it was a joke and for that, I am offering my sincere apology.”
Dodd was fired from “RHOC” in June, but Shannon and Dubrow, 52, are expected to return for Season 16.
