ETonline invited Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan King Edmonds to join us for Housewives Happy Hour, a new web series where we sit down with the stars of Bravo's hit franchise over cocktails to dish dirt on the current season, talk cast members old and new, and discuss whatever else just happens to pop up.
"It's so much more work than I expected," Edmonds told ETonline about joining the show for its landmark tenth season, champagne in hand. "I was just thinking, 'Oh, this will be a fun thing!' No."
Edmonds was familiar with the show before joining the cast -- she even appeared in a season nine episode -- but she was not a regular viewer, only catching an episode from time to time. "I just thought it was, like, these crazy b***hes," Edmonds said, with a laugh. "And now I'm a crazy b***h! ... Now [when I watch] I'm, like, 'Whoa! Look at these crazy b***hes. Who the hell do they think they are?' Now I'm one of them."
Edmonds is new to being both a "Real Housewife" and a real housewife -- she married baseball star Jim Edmonds less than a year ago. "I had just gotten married in October," Edmonds said. "And I think we started filming in January."
While Edmonds is a newlywed, she and her husband have been together for almost three years. "I get a random text message from a mutual friend saying, 'Jim Edmonds wants to go on a date with you,'" Edmonds said of how their relationship started. "And I'm thinking, 'What do I have in common with him?' So, I googled him ... so, I go on this date, we clicked like that. We've been together ever since."
