No, you weren't hallucinating. That really was the one and only Meghan King Edmonds making a cameo on The Real Housewives of Orange County during the October 15 episode (check her out in action in the clip above). MKE returned to the world of RHOC to celebrate Shannon Storms Beador's 55th birthday and very quickly found herself in the middle of some Housewives drama.
When Meghan was trying to get to the bottom of Emily Simpson and Gina's Kirschenheiter's friendship drama after that failed date with Shane Simpson's cousin, Gina didn't really understand why Meghan was getting involved: "Who the f--- is Meghan? I just met this girl and you're gonna spill your guts to her in the bathroom?"
But, let's take it back to the beginning. Emily and Meghan met for the first time during the episode, and Meghan could already sense something was off. "I just met you like three seconds ago. I feel like something's wrong," the OC alum shared with Emily.
"Oh, you have very good intuition," Emily responded.
With Gina and Emily deep in friendship tension, Meghan found herself in the middle of it all after forming a bit of a bond with Emily and chatting with her in the ladies room at Shannon's birthday bash. But, Gina wasn't feeling that: "Like I just met Meghan. I would never bring her into my business. You shouldn't get involved in any of our business."
It was all kind of high emotional drama that even included Gina opening up a bit to Meghan in the bathroom. Meghan's response to it all? Simply, "Right."
Later, while MKE never gets very personal about her life outside the OC during the episode, she did confess off-hand, "I have like other things to f---ing worry about" about getting dragged into the drama.
But, it wasn't all drama. "I miss Meghan," Shannon shared about having her old pal around for the celebration. Even Kelly Dodd seemed cool with having MKE around after their past drama.
When Tamra Judge stopped by The Daily Dish offices earlier this season, she opened up about what it was like to have MKE around again. "It was nice having Meghan on," Tamra said prior to the cameo airing. "She obviously lives in St. Louis now and has her hands full with three toddlers [Meghan is mom to twins Hart and Hayes, 1, as well as daughter, Aspen, 2], so she had a chance to get away and come spend some time with us. I kind of felt like it was the same Meghan. She just has three little kids now, so she was excited to get away and have some girl time. But she's still the same Meghan."
