Meghan King Edmonds Talks Experience On RHOC and Relationship With Shannon Beador


Newcomer Meghan King Edmonds is bringing it during this new season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. It being the show’s tenth season and her first, and there is a lot of drama going on with just the few episodes that have been aired. There’s been a bit of tension between her and fellow cast member Shannon Beador and we’ve seen in previews that she even goes at it with Vicki Gunvalson. While appearing on AfterBuzz this week with her husband Jim, Meghan talks about her experience with Housewives, her relationship with Shannon Beador, what viewers can expect this season and if she would ever return.

Meghan said her Real Housewives career began when she was asked to join the cast back in November. She was never testing or in talks with Bravo during the Dubrow’s hoedown where her and her husband had actually attended. Her run-in with David Beador (husband and of cast member Shannon) was all coincidental even though it turned out to be a “thing”.

“What really happened at the hoedown was, I was thirsty and needed a glass of wine and they happened to have the cameras there. That’s really all that happened.” She also added that she did not know Shannon at the time.

Another popular topic that always gets brought up by housewives is “bad editing”, but in Meghan’s case she has no issues with it. “I like it. I’m happy with what I’ve seen on the show. I mean what you see, that’s me. That’s what I really did.” Her husband Jim added, “They do a really good job of editing.” Meghan also continued that the crew even did a good job of calming down Shannon’s outburst in Napa. “They calmed it down. It was way more heightened.”

Meghan was also asked about Katie Hamilton who quit the show for personal reasons after the beginning of filming and she said, “I totally wish she would have stayed on. I love Katie. I talk to her pretty frequently. She’s hanging in there. She’s strong. She’s a tough cookie.”

She was then asked about cast member and ‘OG of the OC’ Vicki Gunvalson and her boyfriend Brooks Ayers. She did mention that it was “weird” that Brooks did not attend her mother’s funeral. “I was surprised. I was thinking, ‘Your serious girlfriend, that you live with, her mother died. This is the darkest moment in her life and you can’t be at the funeral?’ That just goes to show how, maybe her family really hates him that bad. You have to pick your poison there.”

Edmonds also claimed that there is an “air of suspicion” about Brooks’ cancer. “As the season goes on, you’ll see a to of questions that come up. A lot of pieces don’t fit into place. It’s not just me who’s questioning. You’ll see that I’m not the only one. When I say that I wonder if he’s being truthful about his diagnosis, I am NOT just pulling that out of my butt. Vicki and Brooks have said things that kind of are contradicting or they raise suspicion or questions.”

Meghan also talked about her relationship and tension with Shannon Beador. First she was asked about how she calls her “the thirty year old” constantly and Meghan said, “she needs to get over it.”

Over social media the two have had their exchanges over Twitter. “When you say we’ve both had nice tweets….I would say that  I’ve had some nice tweets to Shannon. Shannon’s not talking to me right now and I don’t know why. We went through a lot of ups and downs on the show. Right now we’re fine, on the show. We’re neutral. We’re  not close…but we’re fine. We were in a good place at the end of filming but not she’s not talking to me.

Despite the drama between the two, Meghan claims she actually really likes Shannon. “She’s funny. I like her kids. We love David and Shannon. They’ve been kind to us. And, so, it’ll be fine. I feel good about that.”

The Edmonds’ are also not regretting their decision about not inviting Shannon to their charity event. “I have no regrets. Why would I regret it? You’re in different points at different stages. I wasn’t friends with her and she just stormed out in Napa.”

Husband Jim included that he himself did not want Shannon invited saying, “It was our home. And it was our party. It wasn’t a show party. My family and friends were there and it was for charity and the last thing I wanted in my home in front of my friends and family as a drama show. That was my only role in the entire show.”

So what can viewers expect for the rest of the season? “You’re going to see us go to Tahiti. I get really close with Tamra and Heather. You’ll see a lot of us hanging out. Me, Heather, and Tamra do something really cool together the three of us that is going to change the course of the show.”

And would Meghan return for another season? “I totally would. And I’d be pissed if I was fired.”

  1. I am not a fan. I appreciate her love for her step daughter (who someday is going to hate herself for how she treated her dying mother- and on camera) and I see that she has some good qualities but there is no way I would want her in my inner circle of friends.

  2. I think she’s too dumb to matter, and her husband is probably even worse because to add to it he’s nasty. He says “it wasn’t a show party”? Duh. When the Bravo cameras are there, and at that party they are filming ‘scenes’ between the various Housewives (which requires starts and stops, setting up, and “Places,, Everyone!”) it’s a “show party.” He encouraged his idiot wife to leave Shannon out because they thought it would make their story line relevant. All it did was make everybody else rally around Shannon, and leave them with egg on their faces.

  3. I find her calculating, social-climbing, and rather unlikeable, and as much as I’m trying to appreciate her forays into #stepmomhood, it actually reminds me bit too much of the Julia Roberts / Susan Sarandon movie “Stepmom”. I think I’ll pass. Bless that poor first wife, though. It can’t be easy having your ex’s current wife remind everyone within earshot in nearly every scene that she’s in that you’re dying. There’s an insensitivity there that doesn’t sit well with me.

  4. I do not look forward to another season of her. If she is all they can find in Orange County, then maybe they should look elsewhere. I would rather not see any scenes with Meghan in them and would gladly fast forward through them if I recorded them, but I can’t. She is so removed from anything I find entertaining. She has the opposite effect. I am repulsed.

  5. What do I think of Meghan? Not Much at all. And the fact that she’s close to Tamara & Heather speaks volumes about her character.

  6. I have all the new episodes Orange County saved but haven’t watched yet….. still have ptsd from Beverly Hills. Also holding off on New York – I’ve watched a couple of episodes but not up to date. I think Brandi and Kim’s behavior has soured me…. hope not for long cuz I used to love watching!

  7. She is so annoying… I started to skip her scenes… Hope she’s not there next season.. It shows tag at everything she does is only for a story line.. She’s sooo fake

  8. I don’t like her either. And I don’t believe for a nano-second, at Heather’s party, that she “was thirsty and wanted a glass of wine.” Yeah, she got “thirsty,” as soon as she NOTICED the cameras. Especially, since I’ve read that she’s already been on several reality shows, already. I wonder if that was part of her allure, with respect to JimMEE. Considering he’s been begging Andy to be on one.

  9. She’s been an awesome addition, very glad she’s on the show. Not afraid to store it up, and doesn’t seem to mind taking the heat, nice to not have Tamra play out as the one and only villain.

    1. Are you male or female? I just wondered. You seem to be one of the very few who like her
      I know it is none of my beeswax, but you seem to be in the minority here about her.
      Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I get that.

          1. I said in my question that it was none of my business. He decided to answer. I also said, Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I get that.
            He didn’t have to answer. He did that all on his own. For all you know he is a she, anyway, so really what harm was done. We can all be civil here and not judge so harshly what others say. Anyone can like or dislike a character. I have been in the minority myself on more than one occasion too. He is also not the only guy who comments. I happen to enjoy reading most everyone’s comments, and I don’t come here for a fight. I guess he may say his name is. Catelyn J. next time or whatever…Just kidding. 🙂

            1. The whole point of these blogs is posters can be anonymous! You should not ask who anyone is! Yes he answered and didn’t need to but you asked and then your comment ‘hmm somehow I thought that! I have noticed before you asking people questions about themselves, this is a blog where people can exchange their views anonymously! If they didn’t want to do that they would sign in with their names, as some do, or with their emails which would be foolish!!! That is my opinion!!!

              1. I never asked questions about anyone before that were in any way personal. Perhaps you have me mixed up with someone else. RH_dude offered some episodes of shows for me, and some of the files were too large, so he sent links to them via a web link. Our conversation became a lengthy one but not by choice. We never got personal. Someone asked if I was Sandra Bullock…that was not him, but he ran with it to be fun. That was innocent banter. I know you speak as though you are English. Does that sound offensive. It isn’t. I may just be observant of the way you write and terms you use that are obviously more British. You just don’t like what I post. We are still anonymous, unless we use our real full names. You use the last letter of the alphabet in England. That is fine.
                Also, if someone is fine with saying they are male, then he is fine with it. He is still anonymous, female or male. Why would you think that was prying? No one tied him up and made him do it, and for all you know, he was not telling the truth…. The character was a pretty model who most on this site have not loved. So a supposedly male commenter liked her. Maybe he actually likes her, yes, and it isn’t mostly because he finds her pretty. I am not asking his sexual preference and it is none of my business. I said, I though so and with a smile. Someone like RH has told us about himself. I have said that I am female and straight too. No one asked that, but. I have no problem with my sex. Maybe some do, so don’t say anything. If we don’t give out too much info, we are all safe. I am not stupid and I constantly talk about safety if you red all my posts like you seem to say you do. I am not some internet prowler. I am a woman with grown children, and I have the time to come here, since I am free to do so on most days.
                For a Brit, you don’t seem to have a sense of humor or brevity. I am not here to fight with you or anyone. Those who did fight have changed their names, and some of us know who they are with their new names, since they write the same things about the same people…and they have every right to do so, Zed.
                Have a great day! Smile. 🙂

                1. There were some autocorrect errors. I meant thought, not though and I meant read, not red.

                  Zed, I don’t care if you are female, male, trans or whatever. Keep all of it yo yourself and be safe. Just don’t preach to me about my posts. I also said it was none of my beeswax/business and he did not have to answer. I was fine with that. Puleeze.

                  1. I like Sandra and agree with her posts in most cases. She’s reasonable, smart and quite interesting. She’s never asked a personal question, I’m sure she didn’t mean anything derogatory. And I’m female. Good day.

              2. And if sidewinder didn’t want to answer, he wouldn’t. He can defend himself and we don’t need overly sensitive people policing us and telling us what we can and can’t say. This is a blog, not a grade school class room.

                  1. I agree. I hope everyone can agree to disagree and be civil to each other. I don’t see a need to pick fights with people I don’t even know personally. I have P L E N T Y of drama in my own life, believe me. <3

      1. Who asked? Oh, you aren’t male. That was you prerogative to say. So I won’t assume you are female, since that would mean you are no longer anonymous….

  10. I find her very immature, mean and wanting to be relevant. She is trophy wife. Maybe Heather and Tamara got her to do their dirty work so they wouldn’t look so bad this season. .

    1. I think so, too. Tamra has mentioned that they almost had to close the gym after last year. Oh, could that be due to her nastiness on the show? And what a “coincidence,” that haughty Heather is now hawking booze, skin care and plans on writing a book with Miss Terry. Of course those creeps want to rehab their image.

  11. Tamra said straight up that she’s glad Meghan is on the show because now everyone hates HER instead of Tamra.

  12. Marriage – Is it just me or does she seems much crazier in love with hubby than he is with her. He appears uninterested when she talks to him and condescending when he talks to her.

  13. I like Meghan, but when they film with her husband it makes me like her less. I don’t think she is dumb, and I don’t think she is “social climbing” either. I think she is pretty “normal” and “with it” compared to a lot of the other women in the RH franchise. But her husband is a jerk who talks down to her, isn’t charming or funny, and isn’t even good looking. That makes me think less of her- she could find better unless all she is after is money.

  14. can’t find anything interesting about her…she has many of the necessary housewife qualities, self centered, materialistic…you know, but she is sort of a dull, predictable nothing in the personality department.
