According to Shannon, her friends have known John for almost 30 years, and thus she felt right with him. They bonded on the fact that they were both alumni of the University of Southern California. After going out together for a few months, Shannon made their relationship official on Instagram in July 2019. John got along well with Shannon’s co-stars on the show, and by November 2019, the couple’s kids also began getting along with each other.

On Shannon’s birthday in March 2020, she shared with fans a sweet note John had penned down for her, which concluded with the words, “You are my best friend and the woman I can not live without. Happy birthday!!!! I love you with all of my heart and soul. You are my forever and ever amen.” However, there seemed to be slight trouble in paradise since the two began quarantining together during the COVID-19 lockdown. Shannon felt uncomfortable with John’s son not following COVID protocol. Her paranoia escalated when she tested positive for Coronavirus while John remained in the clear.

The arguments led to John temporarily leaving the house to live with his son. In season 15, Shannon spoke to her mother about her fears regarding the future of her relationship with John. Moreover, she turned to co-star Gina Kirschenheiter for support, who expressed her concerns to Emily Simpson in the season finale. The whole order left fans wondering whether Shannon and John made it through the troubles or went their separate ways?
