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.
A few months ago, Meghan Edmonds (now Meghan King) bashed Jim Edmonds when he got coronavirus after partying in Nashville with his daughter Hayley Edmonds and his new girlfriend Kortnie O’Connor.
Well, pot, met kettle. Now Jim and Hayley are slamming Meghan for acting irresponsibly before she revealed her own coronavirus diagnosis. On Sunday, Nov. 15, Meghan shared that she tested positive for coronavirus, the day after she shared a photo cuddling with one of her sons at his soccer game (with many others present). She said she caught during the Tuesday prior. Sure, she might have just got her results on Sunday, but where was the caution from Tuesday- Sunday? Well, the timeline seems a little bizarre and foolish. She also had a girls trip in Miami, with plenty of photos, sans face mask.
A few months ago, Meghan Edmonds (now Meghan King) blasted her ex Jim Edmonds for partying in Nashville before he contracted coronavirus. Among other things, Meghan’s rep said, “Furthermore, since Jim developed coronavirus symptoms 5 days after partying in Nashville it is a blessing that the children have been quarantined with Meghan where she is keeping them safe and entertained.”
Now, Meghan is the one with coronavirus, which probably means that Jim is going to publicly blast her in 3…2…1.
Real Housewives of Orange County alums Meghan Edmonds (aka Meghan King aka Meghan King Edmonds) and Jim Edmonds are in the running for the messiest reality TV breakup of all time.
Just think, if we see so much of their discord publicly, just imagine how much worse things are privately. They just love arguing with through the press and slamming each other’s parenting.
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.
