Real Housewives of Orange County alum Meghan Edmonds’ life has gotten seriously bumpy. First, she discovered that her husband, Jim Edmonds, had a sexting relationship with another woman. I don’t think it was a surprise that Jim couldn’t keep his Dad jeans on.
The couple share three children; daughter Aspen and twin sons Hart and Hayes. In July, Meghan received some tragic news about her son, Hart.
Meghan revealed in her blog that Hart has a neurological condition. “Hart has irreversible brain damage, it’s called PVL,” Meghan wrote. Meghan was even shamed for spending less time with her other children when she takes Hart to therapy in Los Angeles. Really, people?
The couple was supposedly working out their issues in therapy, but the day after their fifth anniversary, Jim pulled the plug and filed for divorce. Meghan accused Jim of allegedly cheating with their long-time au pair, Carly Wilson. Carly denied the accusations. So did an infuriated Jim.

During all the back and forth of this quickly evolving story, Jim gave a statement to US Weekly. “The last couple years have been rough on my wife and me for many reasons. Marriage is difficult but add three small children under three, two adolescent children, two adult children, building a house and two busy, hard-working spouses and the stress of living our lives in the public eye. At times we are exhausted and feel our life has become one of distrust, kids, work, house, sleep and repeat,” Jim said.
“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. With our busy careers and the addition of our son’s medical needs, we were lacking quality time together.”

The former MLB player continued, “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. Hoping for some peace, normalcy, and the ability to move forward in a healthy, happy direction for every single person involved,” Jim stated. “I love my family and will make it right again.” Then maybe don’t cheat? Just a suggestion.
In an interview with US Weekly, Meghan explained that
her cheating ex Jim isn’t speaking for her anymore. “I have to say that when he gave the ‘nice’ interview a few days ago, he was completely speaking for me,” Meghan said. “At that time I had not exchanged one text message with him and I have still not spoken to him on the phone.” The former RHOC star stated that at her home she has kept things “calm, consistent, routine-based and light.”
“I have endured prolific controlling by Jim and it isn’t slowing down. Even when I make an unassuming post on Instagram, he hurls insults at me for a battery of made-up indiscretions. I’m sick of the abuse and I won’t engage anymore–and I don’t have to,” Meghan shared.
She also said that Jim’s statement implied that she had agreed to work things out. “That’s not fair to me. He is not my mouthpiece, and I believe the facade he presented is false and manipulative to the public while using and taking advantage of me,” Meghan added.

It looks like this is going down as one of the messiest divorces in the history of RHOC, and that is saying something! I hope that Meghan can focus on her children and caring for little Hart.
