This year has not been kind to Meghan Edmonds. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum had to deal with a sexting scandal over the summer because her husband, Jim Edmonds, can’t keep his Dad jeans on. Jim’s biggest claim to fame is his reputation as a philanderer. For some unknown reason, Meghan didn’t kick him to the curb. Instead they entered therapy.
Then the couple learned that one of their twin sons, Hart, has Periventricular leukomalacia (PVL), which is a type of brain damage. Meghan immediately sought out early intervention for her son. Say what you will about Meghan’s personality, but it is obvious that she is a fierce and loving mother.
As if that wasn’t enough, Meghan suspected Jim of cheating with one of their nannies. Because that is something that Jim would
always NEVER do. Two months ago, the former RHOC star posted in her personal blog about her suspicions. Under the title “Broken,” Meghan wrote, “To be clear, I don’t know if Jim slept with our babysitter or whether they were just being exceedingly inappropriate by hanging out socially without either of them telling me (and Jim expressly lying to me about it). I’ve gone back and forth with my thoughts for a couple days but as I write this, I don’t think he did. But I still don’t understand why he’d lie.”
According to US Weekly, Jim filed for divorce on October 25, which was one day after their fifth wedding anniversary. Ouch! The police were allegedly called after the couple argued. Nasty allegations were tossed back and forth in the media. It was a real shit show.

Then came the announcement in November that the feuding exes agreed to joint 50/50 custody of their three children. In Touch Weekly reported that the couple’s attorneys worked out the custody agreement. An insider said that Jim was supposedly “thrilled.” Meghan was “not happy.” I find it odd that Jim suddenly has time to spend with his family if he travels all the time for business. I can only imagine how “not happy” Meghan is with this decision.
And now, people have started to comment on Meghan’s thin appearance. Toofab reported that she has responded to a fan’s concern about her body. Meghan posted a photo to her Instagram. It showed a very thin Meghan pushing her one-year-old sons Hart and Hank on swings, while three-year-old daughter Aspen watched. Meghan posted, “Pushing each other along every day.”

“You look very skinny. I know you have a lot on your plate. And I can only imagine how hard it is to juggle it all. Take care of yourself momma, you can’t pour from an empty cup. Sending you love,” a fan wrote. According to toofab, Meghan replied, “I’m too thin. I’m a stress non-eater. I’m working on it.”
Meghan addressed her appearance again in another Instagram post. “Eat a burger. That’s what they say. I’ll be real with you: I’m too thin. But please, I deserve some grace,” Meghan stated. “I am doing the damn thing with all of the dignity I can muster as I put my kiddos before anything else. Much more on this (why I’ve actually lost so much weight, how I feel about it, and what I’m doing about it) #ontheblog #linkinbio #tooskinny #skinnyshaming #stressnoneating.”

Meghan cannot catch a break. I am hoping that 2020 brings her some much-needed peace, and the time to focus on her own health and well-being.
