Meghan King Edmonds is retiring her orange.
Jim Edmonds‘ wife wrote:
“Today is a bittersweet day for me. After three seasons of the rollercoaster that is The Real Housewives of Orange County I’ve decided to hang up my OC Housewife hat.”
The 33-year-old admits filming the show “takes a massive emotional toll” as she is forced to relive “trying moments” every time an episode airs.
“As you might suspect filming this show takes a massive emotional toll: I’m literally filming my real life in real time and engaged in situations and circumstances which can be contentious. Then, when the show airs, we relive some of the most trying moments in our lives and then endure the public’s reaction; we never come out as winners to every viewer. But what you might not suspect is the physical toll: filming is grueling!”
Ultimately, the expecting mother wants to spend more time with her husband and infant daughter Aspen. As we reported, the reality TV personality is currently pregnant with twin boys!
“I must focus on my family and my pregnancy. I will miss the rush of the first all-cast event of the season, the anticipation of receiving each week’s episode, the thrill of wrapping the reunion. I have made soul sisters in Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge and that can’t be lost. They have touched my heart and I would do anything for them and I know they feel the same way about me ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ what a gift to have found that on RHOC! But I guess it’s time for me to become an actual real housewife of sorts. Oh, the irony!”
Onwards and upwards, Meghan!
