Meghan King Edmonds was seen pretending to have cancer on The Real Housewives of Orange County’s latest episode. After weeks of accusing Brooks Ayers of doing the same, Meghan King Edmonds called a doctor that Ayers was reportedly using and pretended to be suffering from the deadly disease in order to gain information about the doctor’s treatment plans.
On Twitter, Meghan King Edmonds received backlash for taking things a bit too far, which she admitted to in her Bravo blog, and one fan in particular pointed out that she could have gotten in trouble had she gained access to Ayers’ medical records and released the information to fans.

While Meghan King Edmonds’ behavior during Monday’s new episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County was certainly questionable, it was not illegal, as she didn’t obtain or release any information.
In Meghan King Edmonds’ weekly blog for Bravo on Monday, September 14, she revealed she was “embarrassed” about her extensive research into Ayers’ cancer diagnosis and treatment.
“I searched online for information because I wanted to know the truth about The Cancer. I contacted his ex-girlfriend to find out more information. Did I go too far? Yes. I should have let it go. I am embarrassed that I dug so deeply. I didn’t trust Brooks or Vicki and I wanted to find an answer, but the way I went about it was wrong.”
That said, Meghan King Edmonds continues to feel strongly about the issue and is determined to get to the bottom of what Ayers is going through.
“It is offensive to me that someone (Brooks) is potentially exploiting this platform for the sake of themselves and not the cause. Not only that, but he’s exploiting friendships (Shannon), public opinion, and spreading the word about a potentially dangerous ‘treatment’ which I find highly unethical.”
Meghan King Edmonds isn’t the only one who has questioned Ayers’ cancer diagnosis. Her co-stars, Heather Thomson and Tamra Barney, have also expressed their concern over Ayers’ claims, suggesting they don’t line up.
Ayers and his former girlfriend, Vicki Gunvalson, maintain Ayers’ diagnosis, and Ayers has said the show will confirm he is truly suffering before the season ends.
For more Meghan King Edmonds, tune into The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 10 on Monday nights at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
