Real Housewives of Orange County alum Meghan King Edmonds revealed that she and husband Jim Edmonds are in couple's counseling to work through their issues stemming from his sexting scandal. The baseball star was caught having an inappropriate virtual relationship with another woman in June 2019, but his reality star wife opted to forgive him for the sake of keeping their family together.
Jim, 49, admitted that he "engaged in an inappropriate conversation" with the woman but he swore that the relationship never turned physical.
"We’re just still working it day by day. I think after such a breach of trust, it’s so hard to rebuild from there, especially with so many distractions, like our son’s health problems and two other little babies as well. And so to focus on the two of us as a couple, is really hard,” Meghan, 35, confessed on The Daily Dish.
Meghan and Jim are parents to daughter Aspen, 2, and twin sons Hart and Hayes, 16 months. Hart has been receiving treatment in New Orleans, Louisiana, for his irreversible brain damage. The tot was diagnosed with minor Periventricular Leukomalacia on both sides of his brain after the couple noticed he was failing to hit milestones.
Meghan's interview with the outlet took place on the same day as the pair's five year anniversary. "Today’s actually our five year anniversary — and so we, he’s inside at Goodwill and we’re like, looking for Halloween costumes — and then we’re going to counseling. I think that’s almost a date for us because we have to talk about us; we have to communicate about things that don’t involve other topics," she said.
Meghan is determined to make her marriage work, but she insisted that her decision was "in no way taking responsibility" for her hubby's actions. "We built a life together and there are so many lives that would be affected. I’m hurt right now and our life is massively affected, but if we were to split just because of his indiscretion then there’s multiple other people who are affected as well. So I owe it to not only myself and the commitment I made to my marriage to work on it, but I owe it to my children," she explained.
After the scandal made headlines, Meghan stated that they were not in therapy, but she's changed her tune when it comes to receiving professional help. "I think going to therapy is huge because I think a lot of men don’t like that. So that’s been really big for me," she added.
