Meghan King Edmonds Reveals She’s Leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County

Meghan King Edmonds confirmed she will not be returning to the Real Housewives of Orange County in a blog entry on Tuesday.

“Today is a bittersweet day for me. After three seasons of the rollercoaster that is The Real Housewives of Orange County I’ve decided to hang up my OC Housewife hat,” she wrote.

King-Edmonds explains that she arrived at this decision after much thought, and then I thought some more.” She explained that being on RHOC not only “takes a massive emotional toll” due to dealing with the drama among the ladies, but it also took a “physical toll” on her as she underwent IVF treatments during Season 11 and experienced the busy life of a new mom to baby daughter Aspen King Edmonds in Season 12.

“My mind was often foggy as I filmed but I put on a great face and did it because I loved being a Housewife and was so grateful for my opportunity. It was only after the season was filmed that I felt I was finally out of the newborn fog and I could look back on the past few months of season 12 with clarity,” she wrote. “I had no idea how exhausted I actually was until I wasn’t exhausted anymore! Season 12 was a real challenge for me.”

Meghan has also shared her decision with Andy Cohen. “He was completely understanding,” Meghan shared. “In fact, all of production has been nothing but understanding and supportive of me and my decisions every step of the way.”

She shared what the show has done for her. “I have made soul sisters in Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge and that can’t be lost. They have touched my heart and I would do anything for them and I know they feel the same way about me – what a gift to have found that on RHOC!”

  1. I think she’ll have her hands full with 3 babies. I loved the way she called Vicki out for her crap but time to move on to things that are important.

  2. Thank God! I didn’t dislike her and she’s “cute”; but she was so incredibly boring and shallow my eyes would roll back in my head! These older guys who marry these much younger girls get what they pay for! There is a whole franchise of sport’s groupies trying to latch onto these rich players! They want everything the former wives had and more including kids (so many of these guys have to in effect “start all over again”!

    1. Your comment nails it,most retired sports stars are broke 5 years after they quit playing,Jim has other ventures.
      Kelly put it out there Meg was a kept woman while Jim was married,just wonder if she left cause she didn’t want that a storyline or if Bravo didn’t ask miss boring back.

  3. Hi Rain did as u suggested and still not able to I contacted Norton.
    ITA Good she will focus on her family and their business, I truly believe she was Not asked back.

  4. I am so happy she is gone… I could not stand her.something about her just grated on my nerves.Yeah keep these friends ya never know how long money will be there or if marriage will last and you need Shannon and Tamra to get u back on.. I am sure when u get bored u will find a 4th reality show to go on.

  5. Very mature, level-headed decision. This show only brought out her worst qualities. Meghan is young with a long, prosperous life ahead; no reason not to start fresh and concentrate on that which matters most in life.
