Bravo reality star Meghan King Edmonds revealed her excuse for being filmed drinking while she is pregnant. Edmonds was allegedly at a pub crawl with the rest of the ladies of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Meghan King Edmonds’ husband has been the one under fire during the couple’s first pregnancy together. Jim Edmonds has been accused of being distant when his wife was undergoing IVF treatments trying to get pregnant.
Now, fans of The Real Housewives of Orange County are attacking Meghan Edmonds after the reality star was accused of drinking alcohol while at a bar with her castmates.
During their trip to Ireland, which was filmed for an episode of the Bravo reality show, Edmonds set up a pub crawl for her RHOC co-stars while she met with a genealogist so that she could learn more about her Irish heritage.
However, before she left the ladies to their pub crawl, she was filmed on camera holding a what appeared to be an alcoholic beverage, according to Radar Online. An angry fan tweeted at Edmonds during the episode airing on Bravo.
“You tried so hard to get prego now I’m pissed you’re drinking.”
Meghan was quick to fire back at her haters by explaining why she drank at the bar.
“It’s really upsetting to me that people would actually think I’d put my baby girl in danger by drinking alcohol,” she wrote on her Bravo blog. “It was actually really fun for me to try to get everyone else drunk and I purposely excluded myself from certain activities in Ireland, knowing that the only thing the girls would be doing is drinking.”
The reality star explained that the drink she was holding was a non-alcoholic beer.
“Doctors will tell you that it is perfectly fine to have a glass of wine while pregnant, but I thought it was extremely nice of the Irish pub to offer me non-alcoholic beer to join in the fun. It was disgusting, by the way.”
