Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador and her husband David have been seeing a marriage therapist since David admitted to having an affair. They decided to film their private couples therapy sessions for the show. Shannon says she hopes their story can help other couples who have faced similar heartbreak.
Shannon says of their therapist Tina Konkin: “Honestly, my marriage would not be where it is today without Tina Konkin and her staff at the Couples Retreat. Our experience with her was life-changing. We are so blessed that she came into our lives.” Tina and her husband Ron Konkin attended one of TV personality Dr. Phil’s personal development seminars in 1993 and they say their lives were forever changed. They trained for two years with one of Dr. Phil’s partners and then in 1995 launched their own “Lifeline Seminars.” Together they treated Kiss’ Gene Simmons and his wife Shannon Tweed. Ron Konkin passed away in 2013 but Tina continues to carry on his legacy. Real Housewives of Orange County airs Mondays at 9pm on Bravo.
