RHOC's Meghan Edmonds offends fans with tasteless jokes about aging

Passionate about dance, Stephanie's love of reality television and celebrity entertainment began with "Dancing with the Stars" and "So You Think You Can Dance." She has since discovered the wonders of the "Real Housewives," the Kardashia...

Meghan Edmonds' age-shaming needs to stop

Meghan Edmonds is younger than the other RHOC ladies — and she wants everybody to know it! The reality star's usual boasting about her age took a bit of a malicious turn during tonight's episode, leaving a bitter taste in fans' mouths.

Meghan Edmonds' age-shaming needs to stop

When Meghan first entered the picture on RHOC, her age was definitely a topic of conversation, with viewers assuming that the age gap between her and the other Housewives could potentially cause issues. But most figured that the other Housewives would be the first to go on the attack and refer to their younger counterpart as a "little girl." Admittedly, that's exactly what Vicki Gunvalson did tonight. But Meghan has spent the entire season earning that description with her childish behavior. She took her usual age-shaming to a whole new level during tonight's episode of RHOC with a verbal attack on Vicki that included the phrase "bitter old woman." Ouch!

Meghan likes to blather on endlessly about how she's so young and hip, but in doing so, she simply proves that she's just as out of touch as the other women. Yes, she's younger than many of the other ladies, but she's still an adult, so it's high time that she acts like one. Classy adults do not constantly draw attention to the age of their companions, even if those other gals happen to be a decade or two older. Meghan should look to Lizzie as an example; she's only a few years older and, yet, she doesn't feel the need to constantly draw attention to the fact that she's younger than Shannon, Tamra, Heather and Vicki.

Twitter no longer approves of Meghan Edmonds

Meghan has never exactly been a favorite on RHOC, but she actually managed to gain a little social media sympathy a few weeks ago when she made an impassioned plea about her role as a stepmother. That all evaporated tonight when she decided to trash the other Housewives. After one too many insults, Meghan's many haters on Twitter made it clear that they had tired of her "I'm so young" shtick.

The common sentiment on Twitter is that, although Meghan boasting about her youthfulness is nothing new, it went way too far tonight. There's nothing wrong with occasional playful ribbing, but at this point, it's no longer occasional and it's not all that playful. Sometimes, Meghan seems downright malicious in her eagerness to remind all of the other Housewives how incredibly ancient they are. Her age-shaming was never all that entertaining, but now it's really starting to get annoying. Please, Meghan, give it a rest.
