Get ready for some major déjà vu. Just as Meghan King Edmonds led the charge last season to get to the bottom of Brooks Ayers' cancer diagnosis and treatment, The Real Housewives of Orange County mom-to-be said on Monday night's Watch What Happens Live that she has "looked into" the cancer charity Vicki Gunvalson is supporting this season, and she doesn't like what she sees.
Meghan gave her thoughts on the commercial Vicki filmed for the charity Kill All Cancer in Monday night's episode of RHOC. "I thought it was weird. I thought it seemed contrived and forced and I don’t even think it’s a charity," she told one caller on WWHL. "I think it’s, like, a fundraiser or something. I looked into it."
She then elaborated on why she doesn't feel like it's legitimate. "It’s a website where you give the website money and then the money funnels it to other charities. Or, the website funnels the money to other charities," Meghan explained. "That’s not a charity."
Kill All Cancer explains its mission on its website. "The purpose of #killALLCancer is to reinvent the way charities are run while building an International Cancer Killer. Raising money via bracelet sales and donations will be the main driver of funds," the organization says in the About Us page on its website. "The organization will be [sic] ran by volunteers and there will be no salaries paid by any charitable contributions. A separate foundation will be created to hold & disperse funds."
Vicki, who has come under fire among the RHOC ladies for her defense of Brooks, revealed why she decided to get involved with Kill All Cancer in her blog on Bravotv.com last week. "The reason why I entered in the insurance industry at 29 years old, was because I wanted to help people and to be able to support my two children as a single mother. That same passion for helping and guiding people is the reason why I chose to become involved with the Kill All Cancer charity. Why wouldn’t I? I was approached by a team of professionals to make a difference in people’s lives through insurance products, donations, and to be part of a charity that can help people who are suffering from cancer," Vicki wrote. "I’ve lost so many friends and family members from all different types of cancer and will fight for the cause and a cure. With my platform, you people reading this, and my friends, the best way to turn a negative into a positive for me is to use my voice and make a difference."
