Meghan Edmonds is on an ongoing quest for relevance, and The Real Housewives of Orange County newbie continues to work to keep hope alive both with her costars and in her marriage. 

This week marks a sad event in the Edmonds’ family with the passing of her husband’s ex-wife, LeAnn Edmonds-Horton. Meghan took to her blog to share her condolences and defend her marriage to absentee husband Jim Edmonds

Meghan shares emotional memories of her close relationship with LeAnn,

“This has been an emotionally taxing week for my family and me. On Tuesday, July 22, LeAnn Huntley Edmonds-Horton lost her battle to colon cancer. Not only was she the mother to two of my stepchildren, Lauren and Hayley, she was my friend. For LeAnn to embrace me as she did is a true testament to her character and her willingness to work together for the sake of her children. LeAnn’s personality was captured perfectly on camera: accommodating, sweet, and overall a lovely person.”

The RHOC rookie describes the impact of LeAnn’s passing on her step-kids,

“There are many people who are affected by her death but Lauren, Hayley, and LeAnn’s parents are the ones who are affected significantly beyond anyone else, and I ask that you allow them to grieve as they see fit because even though life goes on and smiles and laughter exist, the pain in their hearts is constant. “

She clarifies her role as a step-mother in light of LeAnn’s death,

“I will never replace LeAnn and nor will I ever try but I hope that I can take her example and love her girls with even an ounce of the love she exhibited. I am truly blessed to have had LeAnn in my life and she lives on in my beautiful stepdaughters.”

Meghan defends her home life with absentee husband Jim. By the way, Meghan herself blathers about their long periods apart, not just the ladies.

“As evident from this episode, you can see that the women are questioning why I am without my husband half of the time. I understand that this is a unique situation but I love my Hayley and Jimmy and we were willing to sacrifice a few months of seeing each other part-time in order for Hayley to graduate high school in California while being close to her ailing mother (who was undergoing chemo at the time).”

She continues that the situation is not ideal but it works for her family,

“It is not a perfect situation but it was always temporary and done out of the love we have for our family. I don’t see the need to judge this negatively, if I was viewing my situation from an outsider perspective, I would think I would be in awe of the sacrifice we made on behalf of our marriage for the long term emotional health of our child. “
