Meghan King Edmonds wants fans to believe that she’s opting out of the next season of The Real Housewives of Orange County — but according to an insider — the reality mom was fired!
Reportedly, Bravo gave Meghan the axe, after she tried to use her current pregnancy as leverage for a higher paycheck. Meghan is currently expecting twin boys with husband, ex-baseball pro, Jim Edmonds.
“After revealing that she was pregnant again on the season finale last season, Meghan tried to use the twins as leverage with producers to get an extended contract and pay raise,” a source tells Radar.
Ironically, vocal fans consistently complained about Meghan’s lack of storyline — many tired of her repetitive comments about the trials of motherhood.
“She did the same thing with her first pregnancy and it worked,” added the insider. “But producers weren’t biting this time around. They felt that she didn’t bring anything to the table and everyone was sick of her manufactured fake drama!”
The nosy reality star tried to sell that the decision was her own — dropping the blog bomb on Tuesday.
“As you might suspect filming this show takes a massive emotional toll and filming is grueling. I have made soul sisters in Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge and that can’t be lost,” Meghan wrote. “They have touched my heart and I would do anything for them and I know they feel the same way about me – what a gift to have found that on RHOC!”
The source shaded Meghan’s written reveal, noting that such a lengthy explanation was telling.
“The truth is that Meghan wouldn’t have written all that on her blog if she did in fact quit the show” the insider surmised. “She would have just quit!”
“Instead, she is trying to pretend that she doesn’t care and putting the blame on others when she knows that it is her own fault.”
What do you think? Did Meghan walk away or get the axe?
