Meghan King Edmonds Continues To Prove Why She Should Return To ‘RHOC’
Meghan King Edmonds revealed in a recent podcast that her ex-husband Jim Edmonds is in a relationship with a woman he had a threesome with, and by doing so has continued to prove why Bravo should consider bringing her back to The Real Housewives of Orange County.
As RHOC fans are well aware, Meghan and Jim split well after she left the show amid cheating allegations. She now has a podcast and in a new episode, opened up about what is currently bothering her when it comes to her ex.
“I found out yesterday that my ex is allegedly having an affair, or seeing somebody,” she said on the podcast, according to PEOPLE. “Okay, well fine right? We’re separated.”
“Years ago, when he and I got married, I knew Jim had this bad boy kind of past, and we were newlyweds and we were trying to have fun, and he wanted to have a threesome,” she continued. “I thought about it and I thought, ‘Okay, maybe, yeah sure.'”
“So we decided to have a threesome with a friend of mine,” she said. “I felt very comfortable with her, it just felt like ‘Okay if I’m going do this, this can be with who and I’m comfortable with that.’”
This didn’t bother Meghan until recently, when she discovered that the same woman in the threesome is now in a relationship with Jim. She found out the news only a day before recording the podcast, the article points out.
“It’s just so hurtful in so many ways. I don’t want to feel shame by the decision that I made,” she said of her choice to move forward with the threesome years ago.
RHOC may have an open spot for Meghan King Edmonds as production begins on season 15.
PEOPLE obviously reached out to both parties for comment and it resulted in a back-and-forth of epic proportions. Jim, a former MLB player, went first:
“I am tired of the lies for publicity,” he told the magazine. “I filed for divorce over 90 days ago. Meghan has filed as well. The marriage is and has been over. I was invited to a surprise birthday party this weekend for one of my best friends and decided to bring a date. There is no affair going on here. It has been a plus one for the weekend. The woman I am in Cabo with is not her friend. They have not spoken in over three years.”
“As far as threesomes go, there were more than a few initiated by Meghan and only Meghan,” he explained. “Recently, I have learned that she carried on with a few of these women without me being present. Would that not be considered cheating? How can she have a podcast talking about intimacy and relationships when she has neither?”
Meghan didn’t appreciate Jim’s insinuations and fought back in her own statement:
“I never initiated anything, I went along with things because I thought that’s what he wanted,” she said. I wanted to feel as comfortable as possible. We only had one threesome and only once during our marriage and that was with his current girlfriend. I never carried on with any woman outside of these consensual acts described above.”
“I think his attempt to sex shame me illustrates the vile mind of this man,” she continued. “I am the mother of his children and to attempt to exploit deeply personal decisions we made as a couple is his attempt to damage the mother of his children and also attempts to demean me in the most vulnerable way possible: sex.”
These two clearly have unresolved issues in their relationship and at this point, one party isn’t better than the other. Their drama may be extremely cringeworthy, but it’s also the type of thing that would make for an entertaining season of Housewives.
With Bravo considering casting changes, now would be the perfect time for Meghan to move back to the OC.
The Real Housewives of Orange County will return later this year.
