Although I have not completed an official statistical analysis, the Real Housewives of Orange County seems to have one of the highest divorce rates among Housewife shows. Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador and Gina Kirschenheiter vie for a three-way tie for the messiest OC divorces. Surely a feat that is worthy of some kind of award. Sorry Vicki Gunvalson, your divorce from Donn Gunvalson should have been dirtier. No orange, no divorce crown!
Meghan Edmonds has sadly been added to the list of OC Housewives who have split with their husbands since being on the show. Following a sexting scandal in June in which hubbby Jim Edmonds was caught with his red hot hands on the keyboard, the couple seemed to be working on their marriage. To make matters worse, one of their twin sons was recently diagnosed with a neurological condition. Last week, of course, all hell broke loose at Casa Edmonds and Jim has reportedly filed for divorce, with allegations by Meghan of Jim’s inappropriate relationship with the family nanny swirling about. Now, the nanny is speaking out.
Carly Wilson, who had been employed by the Edmonds family as their nanny, made a statement about the situation through her Instagram account. She shared, “In the past week, allegations have been made about me which are not based in fact. I have not and never would participate in any action involving infidelity.” The accompanying photo says “Be kind.”
That is a pretty loud and clear statement from Carly. Jim has also denied that he had an affair with the nanny, calling the accusations “disgusting and irresponsible.” Whatever the situation, it must be very difficult for a young woman to be accused of something she denies in such a public way.

Nanny Carly went on to say in her post, “I consider this a private matter in someone else’s marriage and will not comment on it further. I wish the entire family well.”
So, I think we know where Carly stands. It does not sound like she is going to be selling stories to the tabloids anytime soon. Which is a blessing for everyone involved.

Jim’s family has not been shy about supporting him in this mess. His daughter Hayley Edmonds has come out in full support of her father, taking the opportunity to trash Meghan, saying she has been “waiting” for the divorce. Ditto Jim’s ex-wife, Allison Jayne Raski, who referred to Meghan’s reign as the third Mrs. Edmonds as a “nightmare” for her family. Ouch, that hurts!
But, hold your horses–and your comments, ladies! Jim has just come out with another statement in which he declared he was “sad that his wife was hurt” and said he had “love” for her. He went on to talk about how he “will make it right again” for his family, amongst numerous other verbal love bouquets. I am no marriage counselor, but that doesn’t sound like divorce language to me. It sounds more like, “Oh my God, what have we done” language.

It remains to be seen what will happen in the marriage of Jim and Meghan. It is actually sad to see a couple implode in such a public way. For their sakes, I hope both of them–and their family members–take a social media break. Once something is out there on the internet, it out is there forever. No matter how many follow-up statements you make.
TELL US- WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE NANNY’S STATEMENT? DO YOU THINK MEGHAN AND JIM WILL RECONCILE?
