Shannon is a guest on the Maury Show who has appeared at least 3 times due to cheating related scenarios; she was a victim in one of the cases and a perpetrator in the 2 others.

Shannon first appeared on Maury on November 20, 2000, at the age of 15. At the time, she had a baby and was already married to her husband Chris. She was on Maury to reveal she was a prostitute and she cheated with over 50 men and her son might not be Chris' child. A paternity test revealed Chris was the father of Shannon's son.

Shannon re-appeared on Maury in October 2004 because she had another secret to reveal to her best friend of 10 years, Erica. Shannon had slept with Erica's boyfriend Bobby 11 times. Erica was distraught upon learning of this and stormed backstage. Shannon broke down because she thought Erica did not want to be friends with her anymore, but Erica ended up forgiving her and said she would dump Bobby.

Shannon appeared yet again in Season 8 (2005-2006), this time, she was convinced her boyfriend, Will, was cheating on her. Will was a cable man and Shannon suspected he was giving women free cable in exchange for sex. Shannon also believed Will may be paying other women for sex. Shannon's suspicions were proven true when Will failed his lie detector test; he had sex while he was supposed to be working on cables and he did pay prostitutes for sex at least twice. This is Shannon's most recent confirmed appearance on the Maury Show.



None of Shannon's prior appearances are mentioned in her most recent 2 appearances. During her 2nd and 3rd confirmed appearances, Shannon was never introduced as a former guest.
