On The Real Housewives of Orange County, Meghan Edmonds is feeling the heat from the other women after the Glamis incident. Nope, she didn’t get to the ER to visit Vicki Gunvalson, and though she apologized to Vicki, she’s #sorrynotsorry about the whole situation.
“…I want to start off on a lighter note. Watching these episodes back from when I first found out I was pregnant is so surreal for me and makes me tear up all over again. When Shannon pulled up and I was able to say the words “I’m pregnant” to her out loud, I couldn’t have been more excited.”
I can understand why Meghan would be focused on herself. But right after, ‘hey, the doc knocked me up with Jim’s sperm’ wouldn’t she say something about the accident?
“Those of you saying that it took me too long to fill Shannon in on the [sic] what happened – the girls waited almost three hours to call and tell me… I told Shannon my pregnancy news… Then I had time to actually fill her in on the full story. About 15 minutes in total had passed from when she arrived to when I told her.”
It probably took the helicopter and ambulance some time to arrive. I imagine it wasn’t a quick jog back to camp either. So, I’m calling bullshit on your argument, Meghan.
“I’ve been getting a lot of backlash over the last two weeks for not visiting Vicki in the ER and while I do feel bad if I let anyone down, I still stand by my decision to not drive to the hospital. How many of you can honestly say if you were in my shoes, you would drop everything and rush to the ER?”
*raising my hand*
“I was texting her throughout the couple hours she was in the ER to make sure she was alright. If Vicki wanted me there, she would’ve have said so while I was texting her.”
I’ve been in the ER. It takes more than a couple of hours. Especially if Vicki had to have an MRI. I’m not buying this line of defense either, Meghan. I’m not saying she was wrong for not going, but these excuses of hers are as flimsy as wet Kleenex.
“I was a newly pregnant mother-to-be who should stay clear of hospital germs…I’ve historically been treated badly by Vicki, and I didn’t understand the severity of the situation… I know that only family would be allowed back in the ER with her. What good would it have been for Vicki or myself for me to just be sitting in the waiting room all night? It’s so frustrating that there are all these little things add up, yet I’m the only one really taking the fall for this.”
Okay. That might be a legitimate reason. Meghan’s only one so far.
“One of the things that bothered me the most about this episode was seeing how Heather and Tamra treated me – especially Heather… Heather made it a point to scold me for not asking how she was after the accident… If they were so concerned about Vicki, they would have spent less time drinking champs…and more time figuring out how they were going to leave to go be with their friend.”
Again, this is a little ridiculous. They were out in the desert, had just been in an accident, and had Tamra’s kids back at camp. It was a thirty-minute drive from your golf course, Meghan.
“Heather leaves her kids with babysitters all the time, why would it have been an issue for her to leave one kid to go to the hospital? I’m still in shock over Heather’s comment about “maybe it was reckless for me to get pregnant.” I never would have expected that from her…”
Heather’s comment was pretty bitchy. But seriously, she’s supposed to leave her kid in the desert and drive four hours after being in a dune buggy rollover? Ridiculous!
“I’m happy that I apologized to both Vicki and Heather…so I’m hoping all of the drama around this accident can stop now. Vicki has even said that everything is fine between us and she was glad I came over to her house to check on her – so if Vicki is fine with everything, why is everyone else still making a big deal about this?”
I still don’t think Meghan gets it. She realizes that she looks insensitive, but doesn’t truly understand why. What do you think?
