If there's one thing we know about the Orange County Housewives, it's the simple fact that they never hold back.

So perhaps it should come as no surprise that things get heated really quick Monday night after a psychic alleges to the cast that Vicki Gunvalson's boyfriend Brooks Ayers doesn't have cancer.

"I'm the one who says what the psychic said and there's a lot of fall out from that," Meghan Edmonds teased to E! News exclusively while attending 102.7 KIISFM's Pre-Teen Choice Awards party. "I've been waiting for this episode since we wrapped filming. I think there's going to be a lot of strong opinions both ways."

Ever since the season trailer first aired, viewers have known that some co-stars have sympathy for Brooks' battle while others are a bit more skeptic.

"I have my own suspicions and therefore somewhat of a conclusion," Meghan shared with E! News. "At the same time, I've been really affected by cancer and that's why I think I feel so strongly about this because I see how cancer can rock everyone's world. Not just close relatives, but everybody."

LeAnn Edmonds Horton, who was previously married to Meghan's current husband Jim Edmonds, passed away last month after battling cancer. Proceeds from select #Hashtag Hats go 100 percent directly to cancer research.

As the new storyline plays out, Meghan is also preparing for her very first reunion. While she's already butted heads with some of her cast members, the blond beauty is confident she can hold her own.

"I feel confident that I can own anything that comes out of my mouth," she said. "I'm happy to apologize and learn from my mistakes but at the same time, I'm not going to defend something if I think I'm wrong. If I do think I'm right, I'm happy to defend myself."


And if anyone tries to come after her marriage or step-daughter, lets just say you've been warned.

"We have such a non-traditional relationship and I don't expect many people to relate to that," she shared. "It doesn't bother me because it's not a real issue. My husband and I have a really happy, healthy relationship."

She added, "You can attack me and my marriage all you want, but when you attack my kids, it's war."

Real Housewives of Orange County airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. only on Bravo.
