Jim Edmonds' Daughter Hayley Edmonds Slams His Estranged Wife Meghan King Edmonds — 'I've Been Waiting For Him To Divorce Her'
To say Jim Edmonds' daughter Hayley Edmonds isn't a big fan of former stepmom Meghan King Edmonds would be an understatement. Hayley slammed the Real Housewives of Orange County alum in a new interview and revealed that the whole family is glad about the couple's split.
“I’ve been waiting for it. For probably … three years? I think it’s impossible to be happy with someone so … I don’t know if I would say narcissistic but, she, like, creates her own problems and loves conflict and things like that. The selfishness is miserable for anyone to be around, let alone to be married to her. My whole family has grown closer because we have all had to stay silent in hopes to protect my dad and no one can do it anymore," Hayley, 22, told Us Weekly.
Hayley briefly appeared on RHOC during season 10 when she moved in with Meghan and Jim while her mother LeAnn Horton battled cancer. Sadly, LeAnn passed away in July 2015. Hayley claimed that Meghan used the tragic situation to advance her story line.
"I will say I didn’t look the best when I was on the show, but I got so much scrutiny from the way that she portrayed me like I was stupid and I didn’t care about anything. In reality, like, I dropped out of high school to take care of my sick mother and she came in and completely manipulated me to get on the show and told me I was making it harder on my mom to be there and I was giving her anxiety and I needed to live with Meghan and give my mom less stress," Hayley explained.

Hayley went on to allege that Meghan blocked Jim's mother on Instagram. She also addressed the rumors that Jim had an affair with the family's nanny Carly Wilson, which both parties have vehemently denied. Hayley called the accusations "disturbing" and attempted to set the record straight.
"They’re family! They are around everyday and they care about those kids and they care about my dad because he’s just like … they want to help him. They’re just young girls that are just trying to work and be positive and be happy and enjoy their job. And the way she Meghan stepped over the line is just completely disrespectful and it’s just absurd," she said.
She continued, "Especially the way that she treated Carly is mind-blowing to me because she holds herself to very high moral standards and she is a great girl who moved to St. Louis across the country because she loves those kids. And it’s just I mean absolutely ludicrous I would say. I can’t even … I keep saying I’m shocked, but I’m not surprised at the way that she goes after people so ruthlessly.”
Hayley expressed that she was relieved her father and Meghan split. "Everyone that cares about him is proud that he finally took the leap of leaving her. It really just pisses me off … She’s got the following and she has the public. We’ve always been a really private family. None of us wanted any of this. We all just want to live our own lives," she concluded.
