Meghan King Edmonds Insists She’s Not Hard On Shannon Beador; She Just Speaks The Truth

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.”


Andy showed Meghan a clip of her co-stars talking about her behind her back, with special attention on Shannon Beador gossiping about the fact that Jim Edmonds wasn’t at his own wife’s couples game night. Meghan said, “Shannon always says, ‘What you see is what you get.’  But I didn’t see that… I didn’t hear that… so how did I get that?” 

Andy asked Meghan to describe her co-stars with one word:

Vicki Gunvalson – “Manipulative.”

Tamra Judge – “Loyal.”

Shannon – “Kind-hearted,” adding, “She is. I like Shannon.”

Heather Dubrow – “Motherly.”

When asked why she’s so hard on Shannon, especially considering what she’s going through this season, Meghan argued, “I just speak the truth. I don’t think I’m being hard on her. I’m new to this crew. It’s not easy to fit in with this crowd. I’m just saying what I see.”

More on the new pink hair: “Lee Ann passed away just a few days ago,” shared Meghan, “and I was thinking, ‘Why not?’ It’s hair. You can always change hair. It’s fun. Life’s short.”

A caller asked Meghan if her marriage has been portrayed accurately on the show. She said yes, but made a point to add, “At the beginning of the season, you saw us moving, and that’s really stressful. Now, we’re into the season, and you’re seeing us trying to figure out our time spent apart. That’s really taxing on our relationship, but we try to make the most of what we have together.”

Meghan responded to the backlash surrounding her telling the world that she put Hayley on birth control, “She’s 17 years old. I don’t understand the problem with it. This isn’t 1953.”

Andy explained, but that’s Hayley’s information to share, not yours. “Oh, I see what you’re saying,” she said. “You know what, I’m not sharing her sex life. I’m just sharing the fact that I had a conversation that’s appropriate with a 17 year old about sex.”

The last caller pointed out that even though Vicki doesn’t like when people talk or make assumptions about her relationship with Brooks Ayers, she has questioned Meghan and Jim‘s relationship repeatedly. “I think it’s pretty clear what’s happening there,” said Meghan. “It’s a deflection. It’s some kind of insecurity that is playing out as an attack on me. I can handle it, so I think that’s why she continues to come after me. And it’s not going to end soon.”

The poll results: Does Meghan need Botox? Yes (47%) or No (53%)

Also, Andy‘s Mazel of the Day went to Khloe Kardashian‘s ass on the cover of COMPLEX magazine.
