Meghan King Edmonds has broken her silence following her estranged husband filing for divorce. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum published a post on her blog detailing how she found out her husband had filed the legal documents. In addition, King Edmonds also shared who she thinks Jim Edmonds cheated on her with.
It was last Friday that King Edmonds confronted her husband and the nanny when she received a phone call from a reporter. The journalist was calling to get a comment from the former RHOC star about her divorce.
At the time, King Edmonds had no idea about the divorce and this was the first she was hearing of such a thing.
“How did this tabloid have so much personal information? How did it know Jim had filed for divorce?” King Edmonds questioned herself in her blog post. “Once again, the tabloids knew more about my marriage than I did.”
King Edmonds says that she doesn’t know for sure Nanny Carly is the one that was having an affair with her husband.
“I’m disgusted by what has surfaced in the media,” she continued. ” I love my husband and I’m devastated that our marriage is being broken up in the ugliest and messiest way. I am sad that members of Jim’s family are reveling in our demise.”
How is Meghan King Edmonds coping?
The former Bravolebrity said that she’s “broken” for her family and is going through a difficult time.
“I am buried in despair,” she wrote. “I cry at the drop of a hat. 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 not to condone unethical or wrong behavior.”
Although her relationship with the father of her kids is ending on bad terms, King Edmonds says she wants her children to have a healthy relationship with him.
“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,” she explained.
Jim Edmonds affairs
King Edmonds got real about the marital problems she had with her husband. Her blog starts off by talking about the sexting affair the former MLB star had while she was pregnant with twins. At the time she was also coping with the life-long brain injury her son Hart was diagnosed with.
“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.
King Edmonds also details that her side of the family reached out to Edmonds for support but his side of the family did not extend their hand to her.
At this point, King Edmonds says that her husband was “drinking and partying with much younger women, including several babysitters.” Although she didn’t think much of it at the time, he engaged in shady behavior that made her doubt him.
“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,” she wrote. “I’ve gone back and forth with my thoughts for a couple [of] days but as I write this, I don’t think he did.”
For King Edmonds, it’s now a moment to rebuild and grow from this experience. As she mentioned, her kids are her priority and she plans on moving forward in the most positive way.
