Real Housewives of Orange County

Meghan Edmonds and Jim Edmonds

I feel so bad for Meghan Edmonds. I can’t help thinking that she is just way too nice and normal to be on a reality TV show. That’s why I feel so bad for the criticism that she receives. After going through IVF, Meghan is pregnant with her first child. It should be the happiest time of her life, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

Ever since last season, RHOC fans have been criticizing Meghan‘s marriage – specifically the way her husband Jim Edmonds treats her. A lot of people have said that he doesn’t seem attentive enough to Meghan, and that’s putting it mildly…very mildly. Even Meghan herself admitted this in one of her Bravo blogs. Meghan posted on social media about an important pregnancy milestone and people are wondering where Jim is, once again.


Kelly Dodd blog

So, that new girl, huh? Kelly Dodd has been making quite the splash since showing up on this season of Real Housewives of Orange County. Kelly immediately ruffled the feathers of the majority of the women by befriending and defending the exiled Vicki Gunvalson. Of course, I think we’ve all learned to steer clear of Shannon Beador’s bad side as well. Throw in Tamra Judge stirring the already drama-filled pot, and we’ve got a recipe for disaster that just keeps cooking week after week.

After the most recent shenanigans (I cringed watching, to be honest), Kelly is mortified by her behavior, “In case you are wondering, Jolie did not and will not ever watch last night’s episode. My believing that Shannon set me up and my response to Nina and Jaci’s ‘neutrocious’ (yes, I said that) lies will be revisited at the reunion, so Jolie probably will not be watching that either.”


Shannon Beador

Even though it’s still pretty early on in this season of Real Housewives of Orange County, it seems like Kelly Dodd will end up screaming and insulting people at every big event. So at this point, it isn’t surprising that Kelly ended up stealing the spotlight at a party that was supposed to honor Meghan King Edmonds and her impending pregnancy. 

Kelly took the drama to the next level – which again is not at all surprising – when she decided to use the dreaded “C” word as an insult toward Shannon Beador. I would also like to point out that this wasn’t even a turned up party. It was supposed to be a nice, relaxed dinner to serve as Meghan’s last time eating sushi and drinking alcohol before she got pregnant. So it was supposed to be a pretty chill occasion. Not only was Meghan’s celebration ruined, but Shannon obviously takes issue with Kelly using the nasty “C” word in her honor.


Meghan Edmonds

In my humble opinion, Meghan Edmonds is way too nice and normal for the insane antics on Real Housewives of Orange County. And I don’t get why she would want to be on this show, especially since these women are all about hogging the spotlight.

The one time when the show should have been about Meghan, it was about everyone else. As per usual, Kelly Dodd went on a rampage against her fellow cast members and everyone forgot they were at a party to celebrate Meghan’s impending pregnancy. I couldn’t imagine that Meghan was at all happy with the shit show that went down and she revealed that I was right.


Shannon Beador

Even while on vacation in Hawaii, David and Shannon Beador live-Tweet and live-Facebook an episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. Now that is a fame whore dedication.

Shannon shared the picture above on Twitter during the show, adding, “Live tweeting from our cabana and watching the show! #commercialbreak #RHOC”

After the show, David and Shannon took to Facebook, as they usually do, to chat with their fans. “I’ve never been called that in my life,” Shannon said about Kelly Dodd calling her a c–t. “Heather [Dubrow] was really upset. That night, we were all shaken up. Everyone had tears in our eyes. It was really vicious.”


Kelly Dodd calls Shannon the C-Word

Well hot damn was that an exciting episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County! Satan is confusing, and so too is Kelly Dodd. My head is still spinning from all the crazy, but I think it may be one of my favorite episodes ever. SO much happened that it was like watching Real Housewives as guest-directed by Quentin Tarantino. 

One thing we have definitely learned in our many years observing Housewives in their native environments is that slightly unhinged women do not mix with tables and prostitution whores. Also “mother” and “not a prostitute” are mutually exclusive. No, Kelly didn’t flip a table, but she did flip an entire coven of Housewives and Housewives associates on their heads with expletive-laden, name calling the likes of which Heather Dubrow (who was ironically wearing leopard in a subtle homage to Real Housewives Of New Jersey, I imagine (intentional or ironic!?)) has never heard!


Meghan King Edmonds

There have been a lot of comments among the Real Housewives of Orange County fandom about Jim Edmonds’s very blatant lack of enthusiasm and support during Meghan Edmonds’s fertility process and pregnancy. Sure, that could have been a bad edit, but at the same time it’s not as if that perceived indifference never happened.

Nevertheless, I can’t help watching the show and feeling bad for Meghan. Even if the editing is just unfavorable, she really deserves more support during such an important time in her life. And that is why I couldn’t help wondering why and how Jim and Meghan decided to have a baby in the first place. Recently, Meghan revealed that here was an ultimatum involved.


Vicki Gunvalson In Alaska

In what appears to be a very intriguing coincidence, two former Real Housewives Of Orange County co-stars, who were previously enemies but have recently (conveniently) befriended each other, Gretchen Rossi and Vicki Gunvalson both vacationed in Alaska at the same time!

Yes, America’s frontier does not only suffer through Sarah Palin – it’s also the state which spawned Slade Smiley. (My ‘Spare Alaska’ campaign just started right now).
