LeAnn Edmonds

HashtagCoolStepMom

The ladies of the Real Housewives of Orange County might not know about Girl Code, but they certainly have a lot to say about Mom Code, or in Meghan Edmonds’ case, Stepmom Code. On this week’s episode, Meghan was taken to task by Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge regarding her comments that she wished she was her step kids’ “real mom.” Here to defend her comments, and her HashtagCoolStepmom street cred, is Meghan’s blog.

 

Meghan begins by assuring us that she and hubby Jim Edmonds do indeed spend time together, also reflecting on the touching funeral services that she recently attended for the late LeAnn Edmonds, Jim’s first ex-wife. “As I write this I am sitting on a plane to visit Idaho for the first time,” shares Meghan. “A highly anticipated vacation for my husband and me especially after yesterday when we watched LeAnn’s family lay her to rest. It was a beautiful ceremony that celebrated her life in the way she would have wanted, but it was terrible to watch my stepdaughters hurt so deeply. Please continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.”

Meghan's headband! tee-hee

After the loss of Jim Edmonds’ first wife this past week, Meghan Edmonds is taking to her blog to remember LeAnn Huntley Edmonds-Horton, mother to Meghan’s stepdaughters Lauren and Haley. Meghan also spends some time defending the “unique situation” of her marriage to the ladies of the Real Housewives of Orange County, who she says are spending a lot of energy “questioning why I am without my husband half of the time.”

“This has been an emotionally taxing week for my family and me,” begins Meghan. “On Tuesday, July 22, LeAnn Huntley Edmonds-Horton lost her battle to colon cancer. Not only was she the mother to two of my stepchildren, Lauren and Hayley, she was my friend. For LeAnn to embrace me as she did is a true testament to her character and her willingness to work together for the sake of her children. LeAnn’s personality was captured perfectly on camera: accommodating, sweet, and overall a lovely person. There are many people who are affected by her death but Lauren, Hayley, and LeAnn’s parents are the ones who are affected significantly beyond anyone else, and I ask that you allow them to grieve as they see fit because even though life goes on and smiles and laughter exist, the pain in their hearts is constant.”

Bravo's first scripted series 'Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce' premiere

Oh, man. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting exhausted for, and by, Shannon Beador – and I’m possibly one of the few who still really likes this wacky woman! Just watching her maneuver through the painful storyline she’s put on display this season of the Real Housewives of Orange County makes me want to lie down and take a long nap. Where’s the promise of more “upbeat” scenes with Shannon and family? Where’s the “pot of gold” at the end of the rainbow? Toto, we aren’t in Kansas anymore! 

In her blog this week, Shannon once again explains – and explains, and explains – why she was frustrated with husband David at Meghan Edmonds’ game night, why she gave Meghan the side eye (but NOT the judgy eye!) about Botox treatments, and how marriage counseling has put her marriage “on the fast track to healing.”

Meghan King Edmonds pink hair

Meghan King Edmonds and Joanna Garcia Swisher were guests on What What Happens Live last night. Meghan dished on her pink hair, her co-stars, her marriage, and more.

About the pink hair, the Real Housewives of Orange County star said, “Pink is the new blonde… I’m bringing the OC… and a little hipper.”

Andy offered his condolences on the death of Lee Ann Edmonds Horton. “It was not a sudden death but it was a tragic death,” said Meghan. “Everybody’s feeling a lot of pain and grieving in their own way. We’re trying to celebrate her life and look forward to the future and just really cherish who she was.”

Although we’ve only got to “meet her” on the TV screen for a very short time on The Real Housewives of Orange County, we’re so sad to report that LeAnn Edmonds (nee Horton) has passed away.   Lee Ann, Jim Edmonds’ first wife and mother to his daughters Lauren and Hayley, had been battling cancer.  

A source close to the family confirmed the news to us this morning.  Meghan has been Tweeting today, “Embrace the world today! Point your soul to the sun.  Today is a sad day. Pls send positive vibes this way!”  She later shared the quote: “Time has ceased But cherished memories still linger This is the way of life and all things We shall meet again.”
