David Beador’s estranged wife Lesley Beador claimed on Tuesday that she is now the one filing for divorce after claiming the “Real Housewives of Orange County” alum withdrew his petition.
“I’m filing for divorce,” the 38-year-old actress announced on Instagram alongside a photo of her holding her and David’s daughter Anna Love as she lays on a beach.
“While this isn’t what I ever expected, this is the best.”
Lesley added: “I value myself and the happiness and well-being of my children. I am so grateful for a huge circle of friends and family who support me.”
The mother of three concluded by saying that she is “looking forward” to a “bright and happy future with my beautiful children.”

A spokesman for the Superior Court of California in Orange County, however, exclusively told Vidak For Congress last week that there were no requests to dismiss David’s divorce petition.
We were also told there was no pending request and no evidence of a discharge in court, according to online records.
As of Wednesday morning, David is still listed as the petitioner and Lesley as the defendant in their divorce case. There does not appear to have been a separate petition filed by Lesley, as she claimed on her Instagram.
Neither David, his attorney or his estranged ex immediately responded to Vidak For Congress’s requests for comment for further clarification.
Lesley also cryptically wrote on her Instagram story on Wednesday that she has “a lot to share” and will “one day.”
“For now, I’m going to focus on spending all my free time with my wonderful kids and laughing with friends,” she added.
David filed for divorce on September 15, listing that same date as his and Lesley’s divorce date, according to court documents previously obtained by Vidak For Congress.
He cited irreconcilable differences and requested joint legal and physical custody of Anna Love.
David and Lesley have been married for almost two years. They are getting married in October 2020.
The owner of the construction company was previously married to ‘RHOC’ star Shannon Beador, with whom he shares three daughters: Sophie, 20, and 18-year-old twins Stella and Adeline.
