It's not easy being the new girl. But thanks to support from folks like Tamra Judge and Heather Dubrow, the Real Housewives of Orange County's latest housewife Meghan King Edmonds has found the transition a little easier.
And Heather, who she describes as "wonderful and full of spunk and life," even offered up some advice to Meghan. "She said basically, 'Meghan you are you and I love you for who you are, so continue to be yourself. Stand your ground. Say what you mean and mean what you say, and you'll do great,'" she tells Perez Hilton TV.
Meghan, who is married to former baseball pro and FOX Sports announcer hubby Jim Edmond, also grew close to Tamra, who was "really positive and really welcoming" to her while filming the last season. The two have also bonded over parenting and stepparenting.
"Throughout this season there's a lot of dips and peaks and valleys and ups and downs and ins and outs and lefts and rights," she further teases. "There's an evolution of butting heads and not butting heads... I'd say I'm definitely the most consistent in my relationships with Heather and Tamra.
In addition to showing viewers her growing friendships with the RHOC ladies, they will also get to see her as a stepmother to Jim's teen daughter, on top of dealing with her long distance relationship with her husband.
"I also have a very unique dynamic with my family situation," she says. "My husband is back and forth from our house in St. Louis to our house in Orange County, because he works in St Louis and I'm living in Orange County with his 17-year-old daughter—who I'm stepmom to and I'm closer in age to her than my own husband. And so we have this interesting dynamic."
So, what's she like at the end of the day? "I would say my personality, I'm very opinionated," she said. "I'm not afraid to speak my mind, stand my ground, so they'll definitely see a lot of that this season."
