Real Housewives Of Orange County’s Meghan King Edmonds Still Questioning Brooks Ayers’ Cancer Claims


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 Ayers is 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.


Most recently, People featured an interview with the reality star where she wastes even more breath talking about Brooks, and by “most recently,” I mean yesterday. So I’m going to pretend that this mind-numbing exchange involving Meghan and her cancer crusade against Brooks was the only fluff piece on the site among tributes of bravery and sacrifice and the kindness of strangers and stories of how families are coping. I’ll keep pretending. Did I ever tell you about the time I stopped watching the Today Show (not the fourth hour, I can’t quit Hoda!) because on September 11, 2013 it aired a segment on Kris Jenner’s plastic surgery when the rest of the country was observing a moment of silence? GMA, all the way.

Anyhoo, Meghan is tasked with being the voice of her co-stars when it comes to Brooks. She has huge doubts over his claims he is suffering from Stage 3 Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, stating, “Every single person thinks what I am verbalizing.”

She cites the most recent RHOC installment as proof (of what I’m not quite sure), explaining, “The general hypothesis is that, for example in last week’s episode, I go to the doctor because I have a lump and I need to get it checked out. You see that in the episode, but there’s really no follow-up because it was an infection.”

Meghan continues, “Well, what if I said, ‘It’s not an infection but cancer.’ No one can disprove that, and there is actual evidence of it starting somewhere because I did go to the doctor. It’s a real thing, but if I wanted to let that story grow legs I could because no one can prove it. I think that’s what might have happened with Brooks. [As for] the answer to the question ‘Does Brooks have cancer?’ I don’t think so, but I can’t disprove that. The only thing that can actually prove or disprove it is medical records, and the only person who has access to those is the individual.”

Just put them both on Maury and let’s get this cleared up once and for all!
