Meghan King Edmonds was not originally set to be a full-time housewife for season 12, and RHOC fans were shocked to hear she was coming back at all after her comments at the end of last season. Then casting rumors reported a few of the new women producers were testing would not be appearing this season, so it’s suspected we’ll see more of her towards the end of the season than early on.
She was (and still is) enjoying her daughter, who I will say is absolutely adorable, but it seems that she checked out of RHOC and drama that occurred before she was an official housewife again.
In this week’s Bravo Blog Meghan threw a ton of shade and made it clear that Shannon Beador, Lydia McLaughlin, and even Peggy Sulahian all displayed “weird” behaviors during dinner at The Quiet Woman, and while she didn’t side with Kelly Dodd, it’s clear that’s who she’s supporting. She also alleged that Lydia set Shannon up, and provided reasoning to support her theory, yet called out Shannon for bringing up her weight gain to Kelly immediately! Finally, she slammed newbie Peggy for her comment about being “beaten” by Diko on Fridays was inappropriate, despite her defense that it was “an Armenian thing!”
I think it’s safe to say that after this episode, no one is going to want to show her face at The Quiet Woman again. Talk about a hot mess! I had to watch that scene a couple times to try to figure out how and why it played out the way it did – and I still don’t get it!
First of all, Peggy’s “joke” about her husband beating her on Fridays? So freaking weird and not funny at all! Whether it be an Armenian thing or not, it was so uncomfortable. I’m sure that made for quite the first impression for Shannon and Tamra who were meeting her for the first time.
I’m actually really interested to hear everyone’s sides on how that night played out… Why did Lydia act surprised when Kelly walked in? She invited her! Why did Kelly say she had no idea that they’d be there? Lydia told her the exact restaurant they’d be at! Why did Lydia follow Shannon and Kelly to the bathroom? Part of me thinks that nothing would have exploded and turned in to what it did, had she not been in there. Also, why did Shannon immediately bring up her weight to Kelly? You haven’t seen each other in six months (and are not friendly with each other), and the first thing you decide to bring up is your weight gain? Then Lydia decided it would be a good time to pray for Shannon? So weird! Kelly had to be so drunk, right? The faces in the window at the end of the night – she’s TOO much! I guess on a positive note, Lydia and Shannon were able to make up and potentially become friends now?
At least now I can always count on seeing Baby A’s sweet face on the screen to break up the drama!
I was shocked that Meghan had nothing negative to add about Tamra Judge or Vicki Gunvalson, which means that they may actually be on good terms. Meghan’s take on Monday night’s RHOC is a bit harsh, and it seems that she’s hinting at drama with some of her co-stars, that has yet to be resolved!
