The saga continues. Meghan King Edmonds broke her silence on October 29 in an extensive blog post on her website. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum addressed the cheating allegations about her estranged husband Jim Edmonds. Jim, 49, filed for divorce from Meghan, 35, on October 25, after the couple allegedly got into an argument and the cops were called to their house. The argument was reportedly about cheating allegations involving the former MLB star and the family’s nanny.
The mother-of-three began her blogpost recalling Jim’s sexting affair from June 2019, and how her son was diagnosed with a neurological disease not long after. “During this difficult time my closest family and friends rallied behind me when I told them I wanted to do everything in my power to address Hart’s diagnosis while also trying to save my marriage." she wrote.
Meghan explained that she didn’t feel supported during the scandal. “Consequently, my family and friends reached out to Jim on their own accord and let him know they supported our marriage, they love him, and they hope he puts forth the effort to fix it. Alternatively, his family and closest friends did not reach out to me—the one who was betrayed, the one who had to read on the Internet that her husband paid his virtual mistress hush money in an attempt to bury the truth. Instead, every last one of them isolated me and some went so far as to blame me for his sexting," she wrote.
She also lamented that no one reached out about her son She also lamented that no one reached out about her son Hart’s recent diagnosis. “Moreover I didn’t even get a single message or phone call of support or concern regarding our brain-injured child…It was heartbreaking to realize that I did not have the love or support of Jim’s family – instead they were actively ignoring me or trying to further sabotage our marriage. Family dynamics are complicated – ours more so than most – but I still expected more from them. That hurt," the former reality star typed.
The Bravo personality also spoke openly about the accusations made against Jim. “In the wake of the sexting situation, my husband was drinking and partying with much younger women, including several of our babysitters, and I found this gallivanting inappropriate, immature, and downright odd. While I initially wrote it off because during several of these outings, his 22-year-old daughter was present, given his previous indiscretions, I was uncomfortable. Even more so when he started lying about where he was going or who he was going with—and deleting entire text conversations on his phone with several of these young women.”
She continued, “And when I learned of a particular outing with a babysitter, this time, to a hockey game, that Jim repeatedly lied about, I asked him to include me on all future texts with this sitter but he said, “No.” Another major red flag.”
However, Meghan also claimed she questioned whether or not the broadcaster even cheated on her. “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. And why would she lie?”
She continued, “Last Friday—the same day I confronted Jim and one of our babysitters—I got a call from a reporter, telling me he had a story and was releasing it. “What?! He’s divorcing me?!” This is the first I had heard of it. Ten minutes later it was all over the world wide web. Two points for me: I’ve now found out that my husband cheated on me (re: the sexting scandal) AND that he was divorcing me via the tabloids. (Turn knife in heart a little more.)”
Meghan claimed she was shocked to find out secondhand that Jim was divorcing her. However, she noted that she had never “made one public statement, allegation, accusation, or otherwise.” She concluded the blog post by mentioning how “disgusted” she was by everything that surfaced in the media. “I am broken for my family. I am buried in despair...But I am enduring. I will set an example for my children and I will teach them to love and respect people while also knowing how to condone unethical or wrong behavior,” she wrote. “I will facilitate healthy, consistent, and ongoing relationships with their father and with his family despite the hurt I feel from them because my children should not reap the karma of my personal situations.”
