Meghan King Edmonds has played the victim card in recent episodes of The Real Housewives of Orange County — until Kelly Dodd and Lydia Mclaughlin ripped off her pristine angel mask.
The tides have turned and RHOC fans are blasting the new mom for her pot-stirring ways — but Meghan is not backing down. In her Bravo blog, she slams the ladies responsible for the downfall of her reputation.
“Of course I never thought I’d be crying on a mountain over something this ridiculous fight, but it was hard to hear Lydia say that she was on Kelly’s side after our fight at drag queen bingo.”
As fans know, Meghan and Lydia got into a heated exchange while hiking after Lydia pointed out Meghan’s role in the Drag Bingo blowout with Kelly. The fact that Lydia seemingly sided with Kelly, plunged Meghan into a fit of hysterics.
“Lydia is always trying to keep the peace and wants everyone to be friends, yet she was choosing sides? I feel certain that if Lydia were in my shoes, she wouldn’t be agreeing with Kelly and she would be able to clearly see the differences when it came to the text exchange between Kelly and me. It’s also interesting that Lydia sided with Kelly, but in no way defended her that night. Instead, she just walked away from the table and acted like it wasn’t happening.”
Meghan blames her expletive-filled meltdown on her newborn and asserts she wants to maintain a drama-free life (yet she returned to a drama-filled reality show?).
“These last couple episodes were a little difficult to watch – my hormones did not do me any favors. I have the emotional burden of a newborn, so I don’t want or need the emotional burden of drama, but apparently there was no avoiding it.”
Once again, Meghan defends her actions of attacking Kelly’s marriage and insists she was coming from a place of kindness while Kelly was being “mean.”
“When I texted Kelly, I was asking her if a rumor was true. I was NOT cutting down her marriage and meant no ill intent by it. I never “accused” Kelly of having an affair and I didn’t tell anyone about it but her – that’s the opposite of looking to create drama. When Kelly texted me, she was TELLING me that my husband was cheating on me, while I was seven months pregnant. That IS cutting down my marriage. The biggest difference: I’m NOT mean. Kelly IS mean. If something I do is perceived as mean, it is not intentional and I will be the first person to own up to it. When Kelly is mean, she even admits that it’s intentional and malicious.”
Meghan accuses Kelly of picking a fight with her at Drag Bingo and attacks her credibility over the “affair” text messages.
“The only reason the texts were even brought up again that night is because Kelly picked a fight. I had apologized for telling Shannon what Kelly had said and I thought everything was fine between us. I never thought she would have picked a fight with me over something so little, in front of everyone. Kelly used our text exchange as an excuse to attack me. She wanted to go for the jugular, so she jumped on the first opportunity to do so. And unlike Kelly, I do actually have the texts to prove it!”
She continues: “She lied in her blog last week when she said, “It’s a damn good thing that I kept those texts messages to show the women the truth…” because those were MY saved texts and she was reading from MY phone at the table. She also claimed that I had contacted her about the rumored affair, after not speaking for months and with no pleasantries…yet we were texting about Aspen the day before! I almost feel bad for her that she is such an opportunistic liar.”
Once again, the 32-year-old attacks Kelly’s marriage with another classless low blow.
“Let’s face it, Kelly was dating and engaged to someone else WHILE she was still married to Michael…she’s hardly someone to spread marital gossip.”
