Vicki Gunvalson and Meghan King Edmonds: FEUDING Between Season!

In a shocking twist, Vicki Gunvalson recently mended fences with both Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador. But … that doesn’t mean that she’s just going to be nice to everyone.

Recently, Vicki made some less-than-flattering comments about her RHOC costar, Meghan King Edmonds, who is pregnant and also returning next season.

And Meghan King Edmonds isn’t taking that lying down.

Previously, Vicki Gunvalson told Us Weekly that Meghan King Edmonds simply doesn’t belong on The Real Housewives of Orange County.

“No desire, truly no desire to see her. She lives in St. Louis, I don’t even know what she was doing on our show anyway.”

Wow. That’s not subtle at all.

“She lives in St. Louis, she’s pregnant, she has her husband, they’re going to have six kids, she’s not friends with anybody.”

That’s so mean! Like, the St. Louis thing is one thing, and we don’t know why her husband is a factor, but saying that she has no friends is just unkind.

“I don’t know what the correlation with her is.”

That’s … some interesting word choice. Maybe she means that she doesn’t see Meghan King Edmonds’ appeal, or what makes her a fit for the show?

“She’s socially friends with people, but we don’t all hang out together.”

Just because not everyone hangs out doesn’t mean that Meghan doesn’t hang out with some costars.

“I think it’s time for her to turn the chapter to something else and maybe not be our show, we’ll see.”

That’s … not nice.

Vicki sure had a lot to say about Meghan King Edmonds, who responded by telling Us Weekly exactly why Vicki Gunvalson is wrong … and maybe a little pathetic.

“She’s so desperate.”

Sounds like Meghan King Edmonds isn’t holding back, either.

“She says she doesn’t care about me, yet she’s one of my top engagers on Instagram.”

Oh dang, she came with receipts! 

“I don’t even follow her.”

Vicious. We’re living for this.

“And she’s talking about me. It’s laughable.”

Also, showing that you can come back for somebody just as hard they came for you is a great way to show that you absolutely belong on The Real Housewives of Orange County.

“Additionally, I’m really close with Tamra [Judge] and Shannon [Beador], so goes to show how little she knows them.”

So, yes, Meghan has friends, Vicki.

In late November, rumor had it that Bravo was looking to fire three Real Housewives of Orange County stars.

It wasn’t surprising for anyone to see Peggy Sulahian’s name on that list of … what’s the opposite of hopefuls? Nopefuls?

Peggy is a huge bigot and got slammed by a number of other Housewives, past and present. This a woman who allegedly tried to ban her own gay brother from their father’s funeral.

But what really sealed her fate was that she wasn’t interesting. Her “dumb foreigner” act didn’t fool anyone, and she was transparently getting into fights with costars because cameras were rolling. The report that she was then fired was not a surprise.

When we heard that Lydia McLaughlin was fired, it wasn’t a huge shock — she played her part this season, but she didn’t grab anyone’s attention.

Meghan King Edmonds had been on the list of Housewives expected to get the axe, but she’s reportedly staying on the show next season.

Why?

Because Meghan King Edmonds is pregnant with her second child. Pregnancy drama will hook some folks.

The knowledge that Meghan almost didn’t make it back on the show was probably part of where Vicki was coming from with her dismissal of Meghan.

Of course, Meghan King Edmonds is widely regarded to be the prettiest of the Real Housewives of Orange County, which could potentially also be a factor.

Jealousy is real. And Meghan is only 33 — which means that she was barely in her 20s when the series, on which Vicki has been a member since day one, launched.

So there could be a lot of resentment there. But we don’t know for sure if that’s a factor in Vicki’s mind.

Either way, next season sure is going to be interesting, since these two are already exchanging heated words.

Kate Middleton & Meghan Markle: Royals DESPERATE to Quash Feud Rumors!

It’s a busy time of year, and not just because of the holidays. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding day will be here in 5 months, and it sounds like the Royal Family has its hands full.

Not just with preparing the wedding and the venue and the always-topical guest list.

But apparently they’re also doing their best to convince the public that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle totally like each other. And it’s not an easy task.

Meghan Markle is engaged to Prince Harry and living her best life.

For months and months, their relationship — growing ever closer — was the subject of basically 90% of all conversations about the British Royal Family.

The remaining topics were usually about Princess Diana’s memory, about something random, or speculation about Kate Middleton.

But Duchess Kate is pregnant, folks. That made some serious headlines.

She’s due in April, and a royal baby would normally be the talk of the town.

Except that this is Kate’s third child. This isn’t going to bring the public jubilation that Prince George did, because excitement over babies comes with diminishing returns.

And look, here comes Meghan Markle — shiny and new and stealing Kate’s spotlight.

And, thus, the rumors of a feud between Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.

Whether Kate actually resents her or not, the fact that Kate won’t be in Meghan and Harry’s wedding party is raising some eyebrows (even if it’s probably just a matter of protocol).

And it’s not difficult to imagine Kate feeling jealous of this new, younger woman. Meghan Markle is a divorced, biracial, American actress who’s waltzed past barriers to marry Harry.

We can’t know Kate’s innermost thoughts, of course.

But even the mere rumor of a dislike between the women who will soon be family doesn’t look great for the royals. It only makes sense that they’d want to assure the public that everyone’s getting along swimmingly.

RadarOnline reports that Kensington Palace has a particular plan in mind.

Apparently, they’re desperate to get “natural money shots” (not how we’d phrase that) of Kate and Meghan, side-by-side and getting along.

That makes a lot of sense, right? You get some snaps of the two of them chatting or maybe laughing with each other and people are like “oh, they’re getting along! How nice!!”

There’s just one little problem, according to RadarOnline‘s insider.

It takes two to tango, and their source says that:

“Kate isn’t rushing to get the shot.”

Now … that could be unrelated towards her feelings regarding Meghan Markle. Kate’s a mother and she’s not only pregnant, but has some majorly rough morning sickness.

(It’s so severe that she had to be rushed to the hospital, which was was what tipped us off a couple of weeks before the pregnancy announcement)

So when Kate’s feeling well enough to get all dolled up and go outside and be photographed, we imagine that she wants to spend that on official appearances, not on making it look like she doesn’t despise her future sister-in-law.

That’s fair, right?

Either way, though, RadarOnline says that Kensington Palace is planning to photograph Kate and Meghan together over the holidays at Sandringham church.

When people aren’t sure of the friendliness between two women who are drawn close by circumstances, it’s often assumed that the women are feuding.

Whether they’re actresses on a set or two women who become indirect family, if two women aren’t joined at the hip, people seem eager to assume that they hate each other.

Some of that may be misogyny. At other times, though, it’s just reading between the lines.

Whatever the truth, we hope that Kate and Meghan become close. Their husbands are very close brothers, and we hope that they all get along.

Kim Kardashian to Meghan Markle: Be Friends with Me!!!

Being tabloid royalty and the cash cow of the First Family of Reality TV is great and all, but it doesn’t compare to being truly regal.

As such, Kim Kardashian is reportedly hell bent on becoming best friends forever with Prince Harry’s new fiancee Meghan Markle.

A new report hilariously claims that she’s just as obsessed with MegMar as the rest of us peons, only Kim isn’t like the rest of us peons.

With a disproportionate amount of money and influence for someone of her talent level, she believes she can do extraordinary things.

Often times, she can. But embarking on a mission to personally woo and befriend the former Suits actress turned would-be-princess?

That’s just bonkers to be perfectly honest.

Even if it weren’t Kim, the idea of anyone trying to bribe their way to a wedding invite is a little out there, but that’s what’s being alleged.

According to Hollywood Life sources, she’s “pulling out all the stops” to snag an invite to Prince Harry’s May nuptials at Windsor Castle. 

This isn’t the first time her royal obsession has led to Kim reaching out, as she “tried hard to befriend William and Kate,” an insider says.

In that situation, she supposedly set gifts from her own clothing line and that of hubby Kanye West to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Those efforts, unsurprisingly, “didn’t go anywhere.”

Having regrouped, she’s now trying a different approach, “networking like crazy to find mutual friends who will introduce her to Meghan.”

Bribes go a long way, but it’s that personal touch that was missing before … not that she won’t also be issuing bribes. She totes will.

“She’s arranged for diamond earrings that match Meghan’s engagement ring to be designed as a gift,” says the family insider.

Not only that, Kardashian “plans to offer [Meghan] and Harry a private Kanye concert, since she knows the prince is a fan.”

She also feels that these overtures might work because Meghan Markle is from Southern California originally, just like her!

Whether that means she stands a better chance of getting an intro with her than when she tried to befriend the British Kate?

Only time will tell. But she’s going all out.

“She’s determined to make this happen,” the source said, though even if Kim is somehow on their radar, it could be a tall order.

Only 800 people can fit in the church hosting the wedding, meaning it will be challenging to make the cut even under the right circumstances.

William and Kate Middleton’s April 2011 wedding was held at Westminster Abbey, which holds more than double that capacity at 2,000.

Not that this fact would’ve helped Kimye.

Again, there are only a few million commoners who would love to attend, let alone state and dignitaries from around this great planet.

With Kim Kardashian snubbed by Kate Middleton on more than one occasion, it seems quite unlikely that her prayers will be answered.

It’s not that she’s doing anything wrong (who can blame her for fangirling out), it just boils down to the royals being even more famous.

As such, American reality stars with no actual ties to the family (SoCal roots notwithstanding) will be left watching on TV like us. Sad!

Meghan Markle: Controversial Writer Pens Tell-All, Uses Phrase “Markle Sparkle”

In the span of just a few short years, Meghan Markle has gone from Deal or No Deal “briefcase girl” to star of a USA network legal drama to future royalty.

It’s a trajectory that’s sure to inspire both misty-lensed Hallmark Channel romances and 99 cent erotic e-books with titles like The Finger Prince.

We don’t blame the public for being fascinated with Meghan’s story.

We all like to think we’ll be saved from our desperate, mediocre lives when someone with tremendous power and influence recognizes how special we are.

Basically, Meghan is Harry Potter and Harry is Dumbledore and … well, we won’t get into the importance of knowing how to work a wand in both stories, but you get the idea.

The point of that confusing and oddly profane metaphor is that Meghan and Harry’s romance is the stuff of bestsellers.

But it won’t be J.K. Rowling telling the tale.

No, it appears the first to cash in on the international Harkle obsession will be British writer Andrew Morton, a provocateur who’s previously authored biographies on Tom Cruise, Madonna, and Angelina Jolie.

Somehow, not having not been smothered to death by the avalanche of smug that came from researching those three, Morton lived to tell tell the tale of Harry’s mother, Princess Di, in a bestseller titled Diana: Her Story.

Despite the fact that the book was based largely on a secretly recorded conversation between Diana and a friend, Morton was able to secure the late princess’ approval of the project.

In other words, this is a dude who knows where the bodies are buried, and now he’s coming for MegMar:

“I was a fan of Meghan’s long before she met Prince Harry,” British writer Andrew Morton wrote to Fox News.

“She has star quality, what some have called ‘the Markle Sparkle.'”

As a man who has the sack to use the phrase “Markle Sparkle” publicly, you can bet that Morton won’t shy away from all the gritty details of Meghan’s 36 years.

Or, he’ll just engage in 400-plus pages of ass-kissing, because the royals have basically made his career.

Based on his comments on the project, we’re guessing it’s the latter:

“Confident, groomed and camera ready, she is a dramatic contrast to the blushing, coy royal brides of recent history,” Morton recently told Fox News

“The warmth and affection Meghan and Harry displayed during their engagement interview years is light years away from the stilted ‘whatever love means’ conversation with Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981.”

Morton added:

“Meghan is an exciting and genuinely charismatic addition to the royal family – she makes the House of Windsor seem relevant again. Hers is a fascinating story and I can’t wait to tell it.”

Basically, it sounds like dude is a living Instagram filter.

His version of Meghan has a flower crown and shoots out rays of angelic light when she smiles.

So yeah, you may have to wait a bit longer for Markle to get the warts-and-all treatment.

Or you can just go ahead and download The Finger Prince to your Kindle.

We’re not here to judge.

Meghan Markle Rocks Sexy Santa Outfit, Reminds Us Prince Harry Is a Lucky Man

Before Meghan Markle met Prince Harry and became future royalty, she was just another Los Angeles-based model and actress with dreams of success and stardom.

Sure, she enjoyed some pre-Harry success and lived out every young girl’s dream of starring in a USA Network legal drama, but like so many others struggling to make it in Hollywood, Meghan had to pay her dues.

And in her case, that meant holding a briefcase and pretending to be amused by Howie Mandel.

Fortunately, Deal or No Deal was taken off the air due to a government probe into the inhumane demands of its producers.

Or it was canceled because everyone got sick of watching a super-elaborate version of “guess how many fingers I’m holding behind my back.”

We forget which.

Whatever the case (pun fully intended), there’s been a resurgence of interest in the show now that one of its former models is soon to become a royal.

And this week, the retroactive ogling has taken on a seasonal tone, thanks to this photo of Meghan wearing a sexy Santa outfit.

Unlike the other girls, Meghan seems to be genuinely enjoying Howie’s antics in this pic, which is a testament to her acting ability.

It’s also a reminder that Meghan is the opposite of a stuffy royal, which is probably exactly why Harry was drawn to her.

And of course, like the now-famous photo of her in college, this pic reminds us that Meghan hasn’t aged, and presumably will never age.

That’s also a pretty nice bonus for ya boy Harold.

In a way, we suppose being a briefcase girl on Deal or No Deal is pretty good preparatin for life as a royal.

You have to spend a lot of time standing around and pretending you’re not bored out of your mind.

You have to feign joy whenever the peasants get all excited.

And of course, you have to await the deaths of those more powerful than yourself, so that you can move up the briefcase girl line of succession.

We’re pretty sure that’s how it works.

The important thing is, Meghan proved that the always-questionable sexy Santa get-up can work under certain circumstances, and for that, we thank her.

Meghan Markle’s Father Speaks Out: Does He Approve of Prince Harry?

Think you’re happy that Meghan Markle is engaged to Prince Harry?

You should hear what Meghan Markle’s father has to say about it!

No, really, you should. Scroll down to find out what he just said…

Back on November 27, after Clarence House confirmed that the actress and the Royal Stud Muffin had agreed to marry, Markle’s parent did issue the following statement:

“We are incredibly happy for Meghan and Harry. Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person. To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for us as parents,”

Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, who are divorced, added at the time:

“We wish them a lifetime of happiness and are very excited for their future together.” 

Thomas, however, is not spotted out in public very often.

He’s been described by some outlets as a “reclusive” individual who lives  a quiet life in Mexico.

But The Daily Mirror tracked him down in Rosarito Beach (where he was purchasing a four-pack of beer and cigarettes, the newspaper notes) and asked if he’ll be at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle to give away his daughter.

Thomas “beamed,” the publication writes, told the reporter:

“Yes. I’d love to.”

Markle and Harry have confirmed the aforementioned wedding location, along with their plans to exchange vows in May of next year.

(Many insiders, meanwhile, think Markle will then announce her pregnancy by next Christmas. But that’s pure speculation at the moment.)

“I’m very pleased,” the 73-year-old dad added. “I’m delighted.”

Markle’s parents have been indirectly in the news a bit because Thomas is white, while Doria is African-American.

Because people often suck, there’s been debate over Markle’s heritage and some unfortunate harassment she’s suffered as a result.

As for plans more immediate than her nuptials, a source explains to Us Weekly how Meghan will celebrate her first Christmas season as the fiancee of a Royal.

After celebrating Christmas Eve at Queen Elizabeth II’s Sandringham House Harry and his bride-to-be will join Prince William and Kate Middleton at their nearby Anmer Hall home in Norfolk, England.

“They’ll be William and Kate’s guests and travel back and forth with them,” the insider says.

Doesn’t sound too shabby at all, does it?

On December 25 itself, the quartet will be served a traditional English breakfast… attend a mandatory 11 a.m. service at St. Mary Magdalene Church… and then chow down on a a lunch featuring two roast turkeys.

That’s some specific, delicious detail right there!

We’ll let you know more about Harry and Markle’s holiday and wedding plans when further news breaks.
