Before Meghan King Edmonds joined the cast of Real Housewives of Orange County, she mingled with the ladies and their husbands at Heather Dubrow’s hoedown. Heather loves to throw themed parties, so to celebrate the ground breaking on her new multi-million dollar mansion, she got everyone to dress up in cowboy outfits and she served Beer Battered Onion Rings. Everything was going great until Vicki Gunvalson and Shannon Beador showed up over an hour late. Heather is a stickler for etiquette.
Shannon blamed her husband David for being late – he was coaching their daughters’ basketball team and couldn’t reschedule their practice. (Why she didn’t tell Heather that is another story.) The party really got started when David started doing shots with Vicki and flirting with Meghan, who was then engaged to former baseball player Jim Edmonds. When Shannon saddled up to the bar, David conveniently neglected to introduce his wife to Meghan. He apologized when it was brought to his attention by his wife… but now in retrospect the flirting is seen as foreshadowing. David was later caught having an affair. It wasn’t with Meghan, but just the sight of David speaking with Meghan rubs Shannon the wrong way. Real Housewives of Orange County airs Mondays at 9pm on Bravo.
