The new season of The Real Housewives of Orange County premieres next Monday, and new Housewife Meghan King Edmonds is speaking to Perez Hilton about her first season on the show.
Meghan explains that she is very opinionated and that she’s not afraid to speak her mind or stand her ground and that viewers will definitely see a lot of that from her this season.
“I also have a really unique dynamic with my family situation,” Meghan explains. “My husband is back and forth from our house in St. Louis to our house in Orange County, because he works in St. Louis and I’m living in Orange County with his 17-year old daughter who I am a step-mom to. I’m closer in age to her than I am my own husband.”
She continues, “I’m also really good friends with my 17-year old step-daughter’s mom. So, there’s a lot of ups and downs and trying to navigate our way through our family life and at the same time I’m really trying to settle into Orange County.”
Meghan reveals it was most definitely a family decision whether or not to allow the cameras in their home. She reveals that her and her husband are friends with Terry and Heather Dubrow and that she has a great relationship with Tamra Judge.
“We hit it off immediately,” she says of Tamra. “I love Tamra.”
“Vicki was initially extremely welcoming,” Meghan says. “A great hostess. We went through some rocky times after that. We were trying to get to know one another, or she was trying to get to know me. I definitely felt like there were times she was like, ‘Who is this person?'”
“Shannon was pretty cold to me,” Meghan admits. “That was my impression of her. She was stand-offish… but like I said throughout the season there are a lot of dips and ups and downs. You’re going to see the evolution of friendship all throughout the season.”
“Shannon and Vicki constantly remind me how old I am,” she laughs. “I think the age clearly has something to do with it, because it was always brought up and that was a little bit uncomfortable.”
Meghan says from watching the trailer she believes she was summed up very accurately. “I had a great experience,” she says. “I met some awesome women and created some strong friendships and got to do some fun things.”
