I’m just going to say it. Meghan King Edmonds needs to find another way to stay relevant rather than clinging to the coattails of the whether bottom-feeder Brooks Ayersis lying about having cancer. There has to be something else the Real Housewives of Orange County newbie can focus on to stay in the spotlight, right? It’s just so tedious. While I believe Meghan’s concern started from a good place, now it’s just turned ugly. I’m no Brooks fan, and if it turns out he was lying about his diagnosis, that is really gross and low. However, you know what’s grosser and lower? Being the person who keeps accusing someone of lying about being sick when that someone actually does have cancer.
To be honest, I really wanted to like her. I figured Meghan’s youth would spice up the group, and anyone who wants to go head-to-head with Vicki Gunvalson is a-okay in my book. However, even though it’s fun to watch her call out Vicki, it’s not fun to watch her constantly whining about why it’s her mission to expose Brooks.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Meghan King Edmonds has a lot to say about any subject imaginable. Astro-physics? #F–kOff NASA because Meghan owns moon shoes and therefore knows all! Oncology? Meghan plays with Dr. Barbie! Nutritious eating? Like, Fritos have corn and corn is a vegetable. And of course, parenting! #CoolStepMom
Meghan also has a lot to say to and about Vicki Gunvalson. Which works out perfectly because Vicki has a lot to say to and about Meghan. My opinion: They should both stop with the personal attacks and accusations!
On the subject of Meghan’s amazing step-momming skills, Meghan may have bragged a bit too soon! After last week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County, her teen stepdaughter Hayley got involved in some big girl drama on twitter when she called Vicki a “dumb bitch.”
Tamra Judge hasn’t written her musings down in a while because she says, “to be honest I hate writing my blogs. It just doesn’t come easy to me.” But she’s back this week to rehash the main themes of this week’s Real Housewives of Orange County, which basically were (for Tamra): Baptisms, Enabling of Man-Children, and Sticking by Vicki No Matter What. Although Tamra does question the level of Vicki Gunvalson’s epic freak out on daughter Briana Culberson, so it’s not all blind allegiance in the end, perhaps.
Plugging her “sex tape” right out of the gate Tamra claims, “we thought about doing an intro video that would get everyone’s attention. I think we did just that with our fake sex tape, so far over 10 million people have viewed it on YouTube. We get a lot of viewers from around the world asking for fitness tips. We are working on providing free videos on fitness & nutrition. So please subscribe for updated videos.” Well, make that 10 million and one, cuz I just clicked on that YouTube link, and spoiler alert: it’s the same exact clip we watched on RHOC! A sucker is born everyday I guess. And today, that sucker is me. #lowpoint
“Watching Jimmy and I eat dinner alone at our house was relaxing to see,” said Meghan. “We rarely do that. We travel so much so we either eat on the go or go out and catch up with friends. I think the dinner date at home alone with your spouse is underrated – we need to do more of that!
It’s no secret that Lance Bass has been besties with Lisa Vanderpump for some time now, having made cameos here and there on both Vanderpump Rules and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Now Lance is spreading his Housewives wings and weighing in on his faves across the franchises, as well as what he hopes to see in the future (anyone up for Lance’s hubby as the first male “housewife,” he wonders? Yes, please!)
Lance reveals, “I was a huge Real Housewives of Atlanta fan at the beginning. And now I’m a huge Beverly Hills fan, and I’m kind of a newbie fan of New York.” Although he’s branching out with his viewership, Lance admits that for now, “Beverly Hills has my heart.” Well, no surprise there! “Lisa [Vanderpump] definitely is one of my besties. It’s real fun to be able to watch and know someone on the show. But it’s also nice to know a lot of the backstory that other people don’t see. It’s really interesting because, to me, it’s like my own personal reality show,” explains Lance.
Lizzie admitted she likes Meghan because she’s strong-willed – “It takes a lot to take on Vicki,” said Lizzie. – and stands up for herself.
“However, I think this is a very sensitive subject,” added Lizzie. “We are talking about a life threatening illness and the love of Vicki‘s life, Brooks. I don’t have someone in my immediate life battling cancer, so I don’t know how I would personally react if someone wanted to tell me how I should be treating cancer. I understand that there are alternative ways to treat cancer – and there are very individualized treatment plans out there. I can see how it would be personal.”
Shannon Beador is living it up in Hawaii with her family, posting this photo on Instagram just yesterday. Before relaxing on vaycay though, Shannon took some time to reflect about this week’s Real Housewives of Orange County, particularly taking issue with those of us out here who have “criticized” her for the negativity she’s brought to TV screens across the country this season.
Beginning with her take on Heather Dubrow’s luncheon, Shannon admits, “Arguing always puts a pit in my stomach. The tail end of Vicki [Gunvalson] and Meghan [Edmonds’] argument at Heather‘s new home was very uncomfortable. I’m not sure that the luncheon table was the most appropriate place to bring up the topic of Brooks and his illness, but Meghan definitely has a pattern for saying what’s on her mind when she wants to say it.” Siding with Vicki about keeping one’s nose out of other peoples’ medical records, Shannon empathizes, “I understand why Vicki is upset because the idea is so preposterous.”
