This week, Bravo announced two new additions to The Real Housewives of Orange County, set to begin its 10th season in April: (side note: Ten seasons? Really? Already? Yikes.) Meghan King Edmonds and Katie Chadwick Hamilton.
Edmonds is married to former MLB center fielder Jim Edmonds, who now works for Fox Sports. Hamilton is married to current Angel Josh Hamilton.
Now, while I don’t watch the Real Housewives of Anywhere, and don’t plan on starting, I believe each episode is 90% drunken hair pulling, and 10% other stuff. Edmonds and Hamilton will likely fall into the latter 10%, with minimal appearances in the kitchen trying to reason with their wives regarding whatever over dramatization is occurring at that moment.
Edmonds and Hamilton should really join forces and use this as a bonding opportunity. For what it’s worth, Meghan is Edmonds’ third wife and they’ve been married less than six months. Josh and Katie have been married since 2004 and have a foundation together, Triple Play Ministries, which I suspect will not be the focus of many of these episodes.
It’s really weird to me that Edmonds and Hamilton would be on board with this, considering most people think these shows and the people on them cannot possibly taken seriously. But, to each his own, I suppose.
