The messy divorce between Real Housewives of Orange County alum Meghan Edmonds and Jim Edmonds continues to play out in the public eye. This has to be one of the most acrimonious divorces in Housewives history.
The couple’s marriage was rocked by a sexting scandal because Jim “Dad Jeans” Edmonds seems to be incapable of
keeping his Dad jeans on being faithful. Then Meghan accused Jim of cheating with their nanny. Both Jim and the nanny denied the allegations.
Meghan Edmonds has had a rough year. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum dealt with a sexting scandal because her husband, Jim “Dad Jeans” Edmonds was caught with his pants down. But don’t worry–Jim assured the world that he didn’t technically cheat. Sure, Jim.
Meghan also alleged that Jim was cheating with their nanny. Then Meghan received some more devastating news. According to Radar Online, one of the couple’s twin sons, Hart, was diagnosed with Periventricular leukomalacia (PVL). It is a type of “irreversible brain damage.” The former RHOC star has been devoted to getting Hart the early intervention that he needs.
The split between Real Housewives of Orange County alum Meghan Edmonds and former MLB star Jim Edmonds is moving along at a rapid speed. He already has a new house, which he showcased on social media.
Wow. That was quick. Did he just manage to find the perfect house on short notice? Or was he planning to split from Meghan long before he filed for divorce? I don’t actually have an answer to those questions, but we were all thinking it, right? This is just pretty quick for a bounce back.
The divorce between former Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan Edmonds and Jim Edmonds is shaping up to be a big old mess. After news of Jim’s sexting scandal broke in June, the couple seemed to be working things out. Of course, all that changed in late October when the couple split amid Meghan’s allegations that Jim had an inappropriate relationship with one of their nannies, Carly Wilson. At that point, many well-known couples would have taken a social media and press break. Not our Meghan and Jim!
Since their split, the two have been engaged in an ongoing war of words and damage control. Jim denied the nanny accusations and said Meghan was “negligent” and “careless” to accuse him of nanny tomfoolery. Jim then backtracked a bit and said that he was saddened that Meghan was hurt. Meghan, of course, couldn’t leave well enough alone and accused Jim of “drinking and partying with much younger women.” More drama than a telenovela! Of course, that couldn’t be the end of it–not with these two.
Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan Edmonds has been very vocal this year regarding problems in her marriage. Back in June, it was revealed that her hubby Jim Edmonds had been sexting a woman who was not his lovely bride. Meghan gave periodic updates on the status of her marriage after the scandal and the couple seemed to be working through things. Of course, all that changed for the Edmonds in late October, when Meghan alleged that Jim had been having an inappropriate relationship with one of the family nannies.
Since then, the media has been full of details of the split between Meghan and Jim. He has veered from angry to conciliatory in statements about his marriage. Meghan blogged about Jim’s alleged inappropriate behavior, claiming he was “drinking and partying with much younger women.” Jim’s ex-wife number two, Allison Jayne Raski, called his marriage to Meghan a “nightmare” her family had to “endure.” His daughter Hayley Edmonds said she had been “waiting” for the divorce. Oh, the drama! Now, two Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ladies who know a thing or two about drama themselves have chimed in with their opinions on this depressing mess.
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.
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.
To put it bluntly, the shit has really hit the fan for Real Housewives of Orange County alum Meghan Edmonds. To say her life has imploded is putting it mildly. Not only is she a mom of three, Meghan’s son is undergoing intensive therapy for irreversible brain damage. And then there’s the husband.
Jim Edmonds is known for baseball, not being faithful. Despite his poor track record in the game of love, Meghan married him anyway. Naturally, Jim’s children from a previous marriage became Meghan’s stepkids. Viewers saw Meghan struggle in her new maternal role when Hayley Edmonds stayed with the couple in RHOC’s 10th season. At the time, Hayley was 16 and dealing with her mother’s terminal illness. Hayley never seemed particularly fond of Meghan, even though she tried desperately to
take over be a HashtagCoolStepmom. Now that Meghan is being canceled from the Edmonds clan, Hayley speaks out. Boy does she ever!
