The new season of The Real Housewives of Orange County has been full of drama. You would think that Bravo wouldn’t want to change anything up, but it looks like they have plans to move things around. All About the Tea is now confirming that one woman is leaving the show after this season. Who won’t be back on RHOC next season?
It turns out that Meghan King Edmonds won’t be coming back next season. She is having her first child, and it is time to move on to other things. Meghan has been on the show for two seasons so far, but won’t be coming back for a third one.
A source close to production is sharing why Meghan King Edmonds won’t be back again. It is because she has moved back to St. Louis and isn’t even the right area for the show. There are other housewives shows around, but there are not anywhere she will be moving. Meghan is due to have her daughter just next month. This season a lot of her story was about trying to get pregnant and finding out that it wasn’t twins. That part of her story is over, but fans would have enjoyed seeing Meghan King Edmonds as a parent.
Meghan King Edmonds is married to former baseball player Jim Edmonds. There is no word on what made this couple decide to move back, but now that his ex-wife passed away from cancer they do not need to stay close to her. Jim does have a teenage daughter from his previous marriage, but it hasn’t been confirmed if she moved with them or not.
The Real Housewives of Orange County is always shaking things up. The fact that Meghan King Edmonds won’t be back next season leaves a space open for someone new on the show. They could decide to bring back an ex-housewife or add someone new to the mix.
Meghan King Edmonds recently went to Bravo to share her own blog all about the first part of their trip to Ireland. She shared that there would be two more episodes about the trip to Ireland. Meghan did hear the rumors that she was drinking on the trip and she shared her thoughts about these rumors.
“For starters, I feel I need to comment yet again on all of the comments about me ‘drinking while pregnant.’ It’s really upsetting to me that people would actually think I’d put my baby girl in danger by drinking alcohol. 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. 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.”
Things are really going to change without Meghan King Edmonds on the show, but she won’t be the first or the last housewife to leave the show. They always find a new one to replace them. Kelly Dodd recently joined the show, but so far, the fans don’t love her, so it will be surprising if she ends up sticking around for long. Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, and Heather Dubrow don’t look like they are going anywhere.
