The newest – and youngest – addition to Season 10 of the Real Housewives of Orange County is taking notes from Pollyanna in her Bravo blog this week. Meghan Edmonds, wife of baseball star Jim Edmonds, comments on her marriage (everything’s okay! it looks bad, but it’s really fine!!), Tamra Judge’s 5th boob job, Brooks Ayers’ cancer, and Shannon Beador’s painful marriage counseling scenes.
Meghan begins by explaining away “Jimmy’s” gruff treatment of her during their premiere scenes together. “It’s easy to see that Jimmy doesn’t share my happy demeanor, he is stressed about this move because it means that our deal fell through (our buyer couldn’t get a loan for the house while we were in escrow, we lost a lot of money on this failed deal),” Meghan explains. She goes on to list a litany of excuses for his dismissive behavior: “He’s also stressed because he knows that he will be the one flying back and forth between St. Louis and Orange County and his family is once again split up. But he does need to sit back and smell the roses! A little traffic never hurt anyone! And especially on PCH, traffic is practically a prerequisite! As for the wedding ring, he was missing that dang thing for weeks. He finally found it after we moved into our rental house about a month after that dinner with Hayley, it was floating around a rogue suitcase. I think St. Anthony might have had something to do with that discovery!”

Abuse of exclamation points aside, Meghan goes on to call the juxtaposition of her “gushing” over Jim next to scenes of him basically ignoring the snot out of her as “cute!” She quips, “I think it’s cute how I am gushing over my husband and he’s basically like ‘I don’t have time for this’…now in reality that’s not a cute reaction and I would have his head, but seeing it play out on television just goes to show that I need to learn how to not sweat the small stuff.” I can think of another word besides “cute” to use for his behavior. But I’ll leave that to you, dear readers!
After reassuring us of her love for “good friends” Heather and Terry Dubrow, Meghan confesses her shocked reaction to Shannon’s news that David cheated on her. She reveals, “I can’t believe what Shannon and David went through by showcasing their marriage woes. That was intense and uncomfortable to watch, Jimmy couldn’t even watch it because of how emotional it was. It just hurt to see them going through that pain, the worst part was watching Shannon try not to cry.”
Also shocking, Meghan says, is Vicki Gunvalson’s daughter Briana’s suspicious reaction to Brooks‘ cancer news. “Interesting how Briana’s first reaction to Brooks’ cancer was that of suspicion. Briana is a Registered Nurse so she knows that someone who has cancer doesn’t necessarily look like they are sick, so I have a hard time believing this was her only qualm. I’ve never met Briana but I would have to think that she is smarter than Vicki is making her out to be,” claims Meghan.
As for new RHOC “bestie” Tamra, Meghan says she “texted her right away” after she underwent her umpteenth breast surgery (see, Tamra? you DO have friends! sorta…). Though she does admit, “I think I would’ve stuck with what I had because those looked good too. But then again Tamra is probably used to the pain at this point, lord knows that woman has been through the ringer.” Commenting last on Tamra’s grandchild, Meghan offers support, and teasing, for the woman who will surely turn on her faster than a tub of expired cottage cheese: “And now she has her baby, I wonder what Sarah has to say about that!” Meghan adds, “Ava is not her baby, she’s Sarah and Ryan’s!”
