Days after Meghan King Edmonds’ husband’s first wife, LeAnn, lost her battle with cancer, the RHOC star dyed her hair pink as a tribute to LeAnn. Now the reality star is opening up about her drastic hair change and fighting back against criticism.
As for her decision to go pink Meghan tells PEOPLE,“We are embracing the life that we have because life is beautiful and you never know when it’s going to end.”
While Meghan claims to have dyed her hair to honor LeAnn she is receiving criticism. “That I’m an attention seeker or that I look terrible or why didn’t I do blue for colon cancer. But if LeAnn were here, her eyes would be as big as saucers. She would be like ‘I can’t believe you did it,’ but she would love it.”
Meghan explains, “During her chemotherapy she had all these different wigs and she got a red one, and a blonde one, different lengths and she would have her hair stylist give them highlights.”
“She had fun with it and just loved hair and always had her nails perfect so she would have been like, ‘You are crazy but I love you and I think it’s awesome that you did it.’ “
Now, as the family continues to mourn, Meghan says she’s focusing her attention on finding ways to honor her late friend.“I’ve been in constant communication with LeAnn’s mom, and she asked me to help plan a memorial party for her, which is really touching for me.”
“We’re going to do a Sunday Funday theme because LeAnn loved drinking champagne with mimosas, so we’re going to do that at the end of August, and it will be a celebration of her life.”
