Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan Edmonds (now Meghan King) has had a tumultuous couple of years. In 2019, Meghan’s husband of five years, dad jeans enthusiast Jim Edmonds, was involved in a sexting scandal. Jim, it turns out, was also allegedly enthusiastic about nannies. RHOC alum Meghan accused him of cheating with their former nanny, Carly Wilson. Jim denied the accusations. Sure, Jim.
The couple split and embarked on a bitter custody battle over their three children: daughter Aspen and twin sons, Hart and Hayes. Meghan revealed that Hart was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy in a blog post. Unfortunately, she forgot to tell Jim about the diagnosis first.
Meghan King (formerly Meghan Edmonds) has come a long way since her Headband Detective persona on Real Housewives of Orange County. And while it’s been years since she’s been off the show, her personal life has remained firmly in the headlines.
It all started with her tumultuous divorce from perennial dad-jean wearing husband, Jim Edmonds. Things got messy and if we’re being honest, they still are. But Meghan seemed to move on in her own (lightening fast) way and found love with Christian Schauf. They were only together for six months but Meghan told us that he couldn’t take all the media attention. I wouldn’t be shocked if it also had something to do with the messy-ass state of her divorce but ok. We can believe both at the same time.
Meghan King (formerly Meghan Edmonds) may have left Real Housewives of Orange County, but her life has all the drama of a reality show. She split with her husband, Jim “Dad Jeans” Edmonds because he allegedly had an affair with their nanny. Jim also enjoys sexting with other women. Their split wasn’t a surprise to RHOC viewers.
Their divorce has been messy. The couple has battled over custody of their three children: Aspen, Hayes, and Hart. When Hart was diagnosed with cerebral palsy in October of 2020, Meghan shared the news with a blog post. Jim wasn’t pleased that he learned about Hart on social media.
Like all of us, Megan King (formerly Meghan Edmonds and/or Meghan King Edmonds) has had an awful year. Back in October, Meghan’s son, Hart, was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. As she shared in a blog post, the diagnosis gave Meghan a sense of relief since she knew something was going on. Ex-husband and dick pic enthusiast Jim Edmonds slammed her for sharing this information before telling him.
This wasn’t the only time the divorced couple has thrown dirt publicly. In August of 2020, Jim filed for full custody of the kids because he thought Meghan relied too hard on nannies. Which is hilarious considering how much Jim loves nannies. Not to mention their latest public feud has been about who was dumber for getting COVID. Back in April, Jim tested positive after partying in Nashville with his daughter. Flash forward to November when Jim and his daughter got to point the finger at Meghan for getting COVID and behaving irresponsibly. Did I mention Meghan also managed to get a boyfriend in the midst of all this fighting? Well, she did. He was even warned by friends who watch Real Housewives of Orange County to steer clear.
I have to admit, in these uncertain housewife times, I really miss the reliability of Meghan Edmonds. While some might disagree, I stand by my statement. Meghan always brought it when she was on Real Housewives of Orange County. And we are indebted to her forever for her hard work uncovering Brooks Ayers’ cancer scam.
But since leaving RHOC, Meghan’s life has unraveled. Her messy divorce from
Jimmy Dad Jeans Jim Edmonds has been one for the ages. So many allegations have come out that it’s really hard to even keep up with. And now there’s more.
Former Real Housewives of Orange County alum Meghan Edmonds and her soon-to-be ex-husband Jim Edmonds finally seem to be moving on. Meghan found out that her dad-jean wearing ex was allegedly cheating on her with the nanny. Then Jim filed for divorce on their fifth wedding anniversary. Ouch.
Jim even called the police on the former RHOC star after she had a night out, questioning her ability to care for their kids. Now Jim is dating Kortnie O’Connor. That wouldn’t be a big deal, except that Kortnie participated in a threesome with Jim and Meghan during their marriage.
I’m just going to say it – I miss Meghan Edmonds on Real Housewives of Orange County. I know she was a polarizing housewife for fans, but I always enjoyed her. Let us never forget that she was instrumental in exposing super-villain Brooks Ayers’ alleged cancer scam. And she notoriously got under Shannon Beador’s very thin skin over a charity event.
But it’s an understatement to say that times have changed. After a contentious split from husband Jim Edmonds, Meghan has been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. Looks like the marriage blew up after Jim was caught engaging in inappropriate text messages with another woman. From there, it spiraled with allegations that Jim cheated with the nanny. Then he called the cops on Meghan one night. He promptly got coronavirus and started dating a new woman, who is all over his social media. Oh, and did I mention he and Meghan supposedly had a threesome with this woman? Considering he’s fine now, he’s a hard one to feel sympathy for. Sorry, not sorry!
