Jim Edmonds Meghan Edmonds Meghan King Edmonds

About 10 minutes after the last bit of info regarding Jim and Meghan Edmonds’ marriage came out, another statement has been made. I know news travels fast and all that jazz, but this is nuts. Last Friday the world learned Meghan’s unfaithful husband filed for divorce. Apparently, Jim was over having his moves watched and his phone tapped. Horrible mudslinging is happening and once again, the former Real Housewives of Orange County stars are speaking their truth, or at least Jim is.

Let’s be clear, there have been many “statements” regarding Meghan and Jim’s blowout in a short period. This isn’t something new for the couple, it just happened to explode in the public eye. Accused of cheating with a nanny and guilty of sexting with a previous hook-up, Jim has denied any funny business with the staff and publicly lashed out at Meghan. Even Jim’s family got involved. His ex-wife had something to say, and Jim’s daughter spoke out as well. Emotions have been running high and the family is suffering as a whole. Now Jim has stepped in with some words written for him of peace and privacy going forward.

Has it only been 5 days? It feels like 5 years. Pro-tip, DON’T CHEAT and this won’t happen. Lots of people have chimed in on Meghan and Jim’s relationship. Jim’s ex-wife Allison Jayne Raski called Meghan a 5-year nightmare. Jim’s daughter Hayley Edmonds implied Meghan is a narcissist. While it is understandable to stand by your dad or back the father of your children, the simple fact is, Jim has been unfaithful.

Feel free to diss Meghan and protect the moral compass of a family member, but a cheater is a cheater. Prior to this incident, Meghan and Jim were in counseling to deal with the aftermath of Jim’s fondness for sending dick pics to a former dalliance. None of this has been a good look for anyone. Either a lawyer someone had a firm talk with Jim about the court of public opinion, or he feels really bad because now we have something new.

Jim has released a statement to Us Weekly, hopefully, the last one. He begins by saying, he’s emotionally exhausted from a combination of anger, embarrassment, trying to understand, and sadness. Then Jimbo details the difficulties of marriage including, having kids, building a house, and working. Lots of us have kids, work full time, and deal with home renovations. Somehow we manage NOT TO CHEAT. Meghan’s dismay must have been palpable.

“It saddens me tremendously that my wife is hurt. After having a few days to digest the situation, I realize that something that occurred in a split second spiraled out of control with no way to stop it. We were both separately surprised to find out that the media had received details of our private situation without our knowledge, ” Jim wrote. Don’t go to hockey games with anyone your wife is suspicious about and no one will care.

Jim continued, “We both carry an extremely large load and most of our issues could have been worked out if we had more time for us. With our busy careers and the addition of our son’s medical needs, we were lacking quality time together.” Having three small children is no joke. Add one with health issues, and the mother is rarely able to take a deep breath. But they also have loads of money, 4 nannies, and airplanes fly – so why didn’t they see each other?

Because social media is no longer Jim’s friend, he wants to go dark. About time! He shared, “I’m removing myself and all of my family from this unnecessary publicity that I obviously have never quite enjoyed. I have way too much love for my wife and kids for this to happen and it’s time for us to get back to the private life we used to live. Meghan is a truly special woman who my kids are so fortunate to have as their mother.” This is a very quick turnaround. Does anyone think an attorney advised Jim to back off? And, while they are getting “back to the private life they used to live”, does that mean no more divorce?

Jim ended with, “Hoping for some peace, normalcy, and the ability to move forward in a healthy, happy direction for every single person involved. I love my family and will make it right again.” Know how to make it right? STOP CHEATING. Do you smell a reconciliation in the air? We don’t know why Jim is backpedaling, but I respect the effort to take his family drama offline and deal with it privately. Hopefully, this is the last we will hear about this matter. Until it isn’t.
