Even though Meghan Edmonds is the one who brought Kelly Dodd to Real Housewives of Orange County, the two could not be more different. Not only that, but Kelly has serious issues with Meghan’s good friends Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador and has chosen to stand by Vicki Gunvalson (Meghan’s least favorite person in the cast) no matter what.
Needless to say, it’s clear that Meghan had no idea what she was getting herself into when she introduced Kelly to reality TV. And now Kelly has gone from starting shit with Meghan’s friends, to coming at Meghan herself. And aside from the Kelly drama, Meghan isn’t off to a great start with the new girl Peggy Sulahian.
Meghan shared her thoughts on the season so far (particularly Kelly and Peggy) in an interview with Bravo’s The Daily Dish podcast. When she was asked if Peggy was “trying to be funny” by physically pinching her lips shut, Meghan admitted, “I don’t know. I don’t understand her. Not even kidding I met her in person at that Lamborghini party. The thing is I never got to know her. I don’t know her or what she’s about. I don’t get her. She’s weird.” So obviously this relationship is not going to turn around throughout the season, but this is what happens when someone who has zero relationships with anyone on the show becomes a part of the cast. It never makes any sense and it rarely works.
Why would Peggy get so involved in a conversation she knows nothing about? Oh yeah, for screen time and a shot at getting her contract renewed for a second season. The pinching was just beyond cringe-worthy and so out of bounds. Meghan wondered, “Why would you just insert yourself into relationships that have a deep-seeded history? By the way if she knew there was deep-seeded history, why would she do that? If she doesn’t know there’s a deep-seeded history, then why would she do that? It just doesn’t make any sense no matter how you look at it.” Yes, it doesn’t make any sense, but Peggy sure is making a splash with all of her “jokes” that no one (ever) finds funny.
And then there’s Kelly who we all assumed would be a Meghan ally, but she is actually the most loyal member of #TeamVicki. Obviously this never sat well with Meghan, but now she and Kelly are actually arguing quite a bit. When asked if she had “experienced her crazy side before the show,” Meghan responded, “It’s mean. It’s not even just crazy. Crazy is funny and entertaining. I can deal with crazy. Kelly is always mean and malicious when she gets her crazy on. I don’t like that and it’s hard for me.” I don’t blame Meghan for feeling this way, but on the bright side Kelly and Peggy are actually giving her story lines so she should be somewhat grateful on some level.
It really doesn’t seem like Meghan is cool with Kelly these days since she said, “In a lot of ways I see Kelly as a little kid, she just fires back except she’s smarter than a kid so she’s more pointed with her maliciousness. I can see what she’s trying to do.” Well, duh. She’s trying to add drama to a reality TV show.
