It’s a play on words, you see, for we have casting news, and we also wish Bethenny Frankel would be deposited at long last on a desert isle.
If you were among the many who were just about to change the channel on RHOC, but were hanging tight for another scintillating Meghan King Edmonds baby storyline, you have your Monday nights back: Meghan is leaving the show after three seasons. She made the announcement this morning via her blog.
While Meghan’s time on the show was only sporadically interesting, she also holds the rare distinction of being one of the few Housewives to spend as long as she did on the show without meaningfully embarrassing herself in any way. Best wishes to Meghan in her life ahead, whether she’s raising her growing family or using her newfound spare time to seek out members of the O’Toole clan in the street.
In today’s round-up, Jeana Keough has a new look, Meghan King Edmonds has some big news, and the late great Siggy Flicker has an army.
The hits keep coming as Radar Online makes more grave predictions in the wake of Peggy Sulahian’s alleged firing. The latest victim? Lydia McLaughlin, who used her return to serve up a hot course of judgment, prudishness and gaslighting. Those who want to keep up with Lydia’s adventures will simply need to renew their subscription to Nobleman Magazine, the periodical for men who love getting hot shaves from dudes with hand tattoos of scissors.
Radar also insists that, contrary to previous scuttlebutt, Meghan King Edmonds will improbably return yet again. Radar claims that Meghan’s pregnancy announcement gave the producers no choice, which… I mean, I see choices there, but okay. For a frame of reference, if Meghan pulls this off, she’ll have been a Housewife longer than Brandi Glanville and tied with Yolanda Hadid. So let that sink in.
And last, and certainly least, and I hesitate to even type this because acknowledging it makes it known to the universe and as we all know, The Secret works: Radar claims that *takes two stiff shots of vodka in rapid succession* GRETCHEN is a potential returnee. For the record, I do not believe this means anything other than Gretchen was the one who sold the story to Radar Online (shades of “fan favourite Jill Zarin”). Still, we must all come to grips with the fact that Slade Smiley may yet outlive us all. Make peace with your god(s) now.
Looks like more overtime for the staff at the candle store: Meghan King Edmonds announced today that she’s pregnant with baby number two. Though we generally like Meghan and are happy that she’s happy, we can’t help but be resentful that the new tyke will further distract from her calling in life: outing con men on television.
Queen for an Episode: Orange County is cancelled indefinitely until this show gets its shit together. As of this moment, I don’t know how it’s going to happen. The beautiful methed out paradise of Orange County has turned into an unliveable hell. Lynne Curtin didn’t die for this.
