Meghan King Edmonds Admits She Is Too Thin Amid Rumors She Is Returning to ‘RHOC’
Meghan King Edmonds agrees with fans about her dramatic new look. The former Real Housewives of Orange County star has taken a lot of heat over her extreme weight loss, which comes on the heels of her divorce from former St. Louis Cardinal Jim Edmonds. Taking to social media, Edmonds agreed that she has become “too thin” and revealed the real reason why she has been shedding the pounds.
Meghan King Edmonds opens up about weight struggles
After Edmonds recently shared a photo of herself posing with her children, several fans noted that she looks very thin these days. One fan even expressed concern with her rapid weight loss and advised her to get some help.
“I know you have a lot on your plate,” the fan shared. “And I can only imagine how hard it is to juggle it all. Take care of yourself momma, you can’t pour from an empty cup. Sending you love.”
In response, Meghan King Edmonds admitted that she is “too thin,” and revealed exactly why she has been struggling to keep on weight.
“I’m a stress non-eater,” she added. “I’m working on it.”
Although it is sad to see Edmonds lose so much weight, the former reality star has been dealing with a lot of drama this year. Amid rumors that she is returning to the RHOC, Edmonds caught her husband, Jim Edmonds, cheating with their children’s nanny.
According to Page Six, Edmonds and her estranged husband are in the middle of finalizing their divorce, and he recently admitted to sending inappropriate texts to the nanny.
Edmonds moves back to California
In light of her husband’s behavior, Edmonds has officially packed her bags and moved back to California.
In a recent Instagram post, the former RHOC star shared an adorable video of her children making gingerbread houses at her new home. Prior to the clip, Edmonds told her followers that she was living in a long-term rental home.
Part of her decision to move back to California was to get her son, Hart, treatment for an injury called Periventricular Leukomalacia, which has caused some brain damage. Back in July, Meghan King Edmonds opened up about his heartbreaking condition and revealed that he is undergoing therapy in Los Angeles.
“[The doctor] said that this [the diagnosis] explains all of my concerns: the rigidity in his muscles, the (somewhat) delayed physical milestones, the lack of fluidity with arm and leg movements, the stiffness in joints, the weakness in his lower back, the somewhat favored use of his right side,” she shared.
Although Edmonds seems happy with her children, the move and divorce have clearly added a lot of stress to her life. Despite all of the changes, Edmonds is optimistic about co-parenting with her estranged husband.
Is Meghan King Edmonds returning to ‘RHOC’?
Edmonds enjoyed a brief cameo in season 14 of RHOC, sparking a lot of talk that she is thinking about returning as a full-time cast member next season.
Season 14 is still underway, so Bravo likely will not make any casting decisions until a few months after the current run is over.
Even still, Meghan King Edmonds opened up about a possible return in a recent interview with Hollywood Life. The reality star revealed that she would like to come back to the hit series, but she might start off as a friend before making a bigger commitment.
“Yeah, I think so,” she stated. “I told Andy [Cohen] that I really want to consider coming back as a ‘friend’, but I’m kind of not really dead set on it [yet].”
There are a few obstacles that could prevent Edmonds from returning. For starters, she is now living in Los Angeles County instead of Orange County. Secondly, she is very busy raising her three children — Aspen, Hayes, and Hart — so committing to the show would pull her away from them.
Why did Edmonds leave ‘RHOC’?
When Edmonds left the series after season 12, most RHOC fans suspected that she quit because of marital strife. Turns out, Edmonds left the series for a completely different reason.
In a recent interview, Meghan King Edmonds revealed that she actually decided to leave the reality show behind because she was getting ready to have twins. Her decision had nothing to do with her marriage, which fell apart in the years following her departure.
She also noted that she misses being in front of the cameras and that she enjoyed her time on the series, which bodes well for her returning to the show in the near future.
Hopefully, Edmonds can find a way to return as a full-time cast member next season. At the very least, it sounds like fans can expect her to be back as a friend, which means we will get to see more of her next year.
In the meantime, fans can watch the rest of the cast of the Real Housewives of Orange County when the season finale airs Tuesday night on Bravo. Stay tuned to hear if Meghan King Edmonds will return for season 11.
