The cast of the Real Housewives of Orange County has started filming for Season 14, and it looks like a familiar face will be making an appearance. According to Page Six, RHOC alum Meghan King Edmonds was spotted filming with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador at a restaurant earlier this week, but does this mean she is returning to the cast this season?
Insiders say that King-Edmonds was simply in town for a visit, and she will not be moving back to Orange County anytime soon. King-Edmonds’ husband, Jim Edmonds, is a television analyst for the St. Louis Cardinals, and she moved to St. Louis after leaving RHOC to be with her family when she found out she was pregnant with twins.
King-Edmonds was a full-time cast member during Seasons 10 and 11 from 2015 to 2016.
“After my first season I knew what to expect for round two, but even still, filming during IVF and then the beginning of pregnancy during my second season was difficult,” King-Edmonds said at the time. “I was hormonal and tired all the time.”
She went on to explain that she was five weeks pregnant when she filmed the Season 11 reunion, and she was already exhausted. So, she knew it would be impossible to film while she was pregnant with twins.
While King-Edmonds was in California visiting friends, Kelly Dodd traveled to Aspen, Colorado, for a girls’ ski trip, and she brought along RHOC alum, Lauri Peterson. The pair have been documenting their trip on Instagram, but it doesn’t seem to be as dramatic as that memorable Season 8 ski trip. Instead, Dodd and Peterson were all smiles while showing off their snow bunny outfits.
Dodd has been keeping busy since Season 13 wrapped. In addition to going on fun girls’ vacations, she has started a new relationship with boyfriend Brian Reagan – a California plastic surgeon – and she became part owner of Positive Beverage, her “favorite beverage company.”
Positive is a “super healthy” beverage that people can afford, says Dodd. It is a sparkling water brand that offers flavors like Perfectly Peach and Crisp Cucumber, and the water is infused with electrolytes, Vitamins C, B12, and D, and there is also a calcium boost.
The ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County will return – with or without Meghan King Edmonds – Bravo with all new episodes later this year.
