Shannon Beador was seen returning to work on Wednesday for the first time since she was arrested for a DUI in September.
The 59-year-old star was without a cast after fracturing her wrist when driving her car into a home in Newport Beach, California.
The blonde was seen in Phoenix, Arizona with her pals Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson.
The Real Housewives Of Orange County stars were full made up as they arrived to the set of their show Tres Amigas, which revolves around a drinking game.
On Instagram the ladies shared a funny clip of their before and after looks as they wrote, ‘The Tres Amigas are talking over Phoenix!’
The Tres Amigas is the name of the friend group from RHOC, meaning these ladies are the tightest on the show. In 2018, the woman did a spinoff show for Bravo based on the Tres Amigas.

It is likely Beador will not use alcohol in the drinking game as she has been sober since her arrest two months ago.
Beador looked healthy as she wore a black T-shirt and matching leggings with black lace-up sneakers that had a white sole. She held onto a denim jacket and a Mariachi hat.
Judge wore a dark gray sweatshirt and slacks with pink accents, adding black flip flops as she had a Chanel purse on her arm.
Gunvalson had on a Fendi top with light blue denim jeans and a silver necklace as she carried a beige Louis Vuitton purse and clothing.
On Instagram they were seen changing into bright peach double breasted coats that were worn as dresses as they added gold high heels.
In September, Gunvalson said on Watch What Happens Live that no friendship on Bravo compares to the Tres Amigas.
The group fell out after Tamra’s and Vicki’s departures from the show. But they came back together in Season 17 of the RHOC after Tamra rejoined the cast and made amends with Shannon.
Vicki appears as a guest throughout Season 17, meaning they are back in action.
Shannon said on WWHL that the best thing about being a Tres Amiga is the ‘silly fun and the sisterhood.’ She added, ‘The chemistry that the three of us have together is something you can’t have with other people. I don’t have it with other people.
Vicki noted, ‘Well, none of us are replaceable. So if the Tres Amigas can’t be together, we’re never going to be bringing somebody else in.’

Back in Season 14, Tamra said Braunwyn Windham-Burke could be part of the ‘new Tres Amigas.’ but Vicki said there was no new Tres Amigas.
Vicki added, ‘They’re not invited.’
Shannon looked back at past Tres Amigas fun and said, ‘Tahiti absolutely was the most fun trip. That was my second season, and I didn’t realize that when you had a planned dinner that you could split up. So it was just the three of us, and Vicki literally drove a golf cart into a restaurant.
‘They honestly freaked out. That was one of the most fun nights I’ve ever had.’
This comes days after Beador said her DUI hit-and-run was a ‘terrible mistake’ as she addressed her arrest at BravoCon 2023, held at Caesars Forum, last week.
‘It’s been a tough six weeks, but I will tell you that I made a terrible, terrible mistake and I’m incredibly grateful that it didn’t hurt anyone,’ Beador told the audience, as per Variety.
Beador also said she completed ’28 days of behavioral wellness’ counseling with an alcohol specialist, adding she’s been able to ‘focus on elements of my life that are unhealthy and toxic. I’m moving in a good and positive direction.’
The star spoke out about the arrest — which happened in September — after she avoided jail time and received three years of probation during her sentencing.
While out in Vegas, Beador also reportedly stayed sober and ‘only drank water’ as per Page Six.

The publication reported that the star went out to Beauty & Essex inside The Cosmopolitan hotel with friends but did not indulge in any drinks.
Fans weren’t sure Shannon would make the event, given her legal troubles, however on Friday morning she shared a snap of her outfit with the caption: ‘Good morning. ❤️ Ready for #BravoCon…’
She also shared another snap with co-stars Tamra and Vicki, writing, ‘We’re taking over #BravoCon Have you stopped by our booth?’
It was reported that Beador avoided jail time in her DUI hit-and-run case after a California judge settled on three years of probation.
The troubled reality star was handed her sentence last week. She was given 36 months of informal probation plus fines and fees.
She will also have to complete 40 hours of community service and a nine-month alcohol program.
The Bravo staple did not show up to court herself, rather she had her attorney appear on her behalf to enter her plea of no contest to one count DUI and one count driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or more.
The judge dismissed the single count of hit-and-run with property damage.
A source close to Shannon said: ‘It is safe to say that she is relieved and is grateful that she won’t have to go to jail. This experience has taught her so much and shown her the path to a better life. She is sober and is doing very well.’
Legal documents originally obtained by TMZ revealed that Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer attempted to convince the judge to dole out a sentence of 30 days in jail.

Beador was arrested in September after she crashed her car into a Newport Beach home.
Video surveillance footage shows Beador speeding through a residential area before smashing her car into the side of a house.
In the legal documents, DA Spitzer wrote that Beador had a .24 percent Blood Alcohol Content ahead of the crash – three times the legal limit.
Beador walked away from the crash with a fractured left wrist, in addition to cuts and bruising to her left eye.
She has since paid for the property damage to the house she hit.
Following her September arrest, Beador’s lawyer Michael Fell told DailyMail.com: ‘Shannon is extremely apologetic and remorseful. We will be awaiting the official information on this case as it becomes available, and Shannon is prepared to accept full responsibility for her actions.’
Sentence: Beador was handed a sentence of three years of probation plus fines, community service and the mandatory completion of an alcohol abuse program; seen in 2020
Staple: Beador has been a staple of the Orange County branch of the housewives since 2014; (L-R) Shannon, and Tamra
Beador herself said: ‘I am grateful that no one else was injured besides me in this incident. I have learned so much from my terrible mistake that night and realize that driving any distance while impaired is too far.’
In the wake of the accident, Beador told her fans and followers that she is ‘focusing on getting healthy, getting back to myself and walking Archie (her dog).’
It has been a tough year for Beador whose beau John Janssen blindsided her by splitting in November 2022 after nearly four years of dating.
John broke up with Shannon shortly after filming for season 17 of RHOC had wrapped, but she did not go public with their split until January.
Shannon made her relationship with John official on Instagram in July 2019 after ending her tumultuous marriage to David Beador.
The reality star has daughter Sophie, 21, and twin daughters Stella and Adeline, 19, with ex-husband David.
