After the news broke that Jim Edmonds had filed for divorce from his wife – former Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan King Edmonds – after five years of marriage, Meghan took to Instagram to post a “raw” selfie. And, to show support for her former co-star, Tamra Judge wrote a message in the comments to let Meghan know that she was thinking of her.
Just one day after the couple celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary – and Meghan said in an interview with The Daily Dish that the couple was going to counseling and working on their marriage – Jim Edmonds filed for divorce.
According to Us Weekly, Meghan called the cops after the couple got into a huge fight when she confronted him with allegations that he had cheated with their nanny. When the cops arrived, no one was hurt and they didn’t arrest anyone, but Jim had had enough and apparently went straight to his attorney.
Sitting in her bathroom in the middle of the night on Friday October 25th dressed in PJs and no makeup, Meghan took a selfie and posted it on Instagram, adding the caption, “So raw.” The first member of the RHOC cast to post a message for Meghan was Judge, who wrote, “Big hugs. You are a strong woman Megs. Love you.”
It isn’t clear which nanny Meghan thinks Jim had the affair with, as the couple reportedly has four nannies and one live-in au pair to help them with their two-year-old daughter Aspen and their one-year-old twin boys Hart and Hayes.
“They celebrated their anniversary yesterday, but today she confronted the nanny and Jim. The nanny is someone who has worked for them for years and is like family,” says an insider. “She made all these accusations and then fired the nanny and swore at her. And then during the argument with Jim, she called the cops, but nothing came of it. The police chalked it up to a verbal dispute. No charges were filed.”
The former St. Louis Cardinals center fielder and the nanny reportedly denied the cheating allegations, but the insider added that Meghan and Jim had been fighting a lot lately. The fight that led to the cheating allegations happened after Jim went to a hockey game with someone, and Meghan started “interrogating him about who he went with.”
The split also comes after Jim had an inappropriate relationship with a woman while Meghan was pregnant with their twins, and the cheating scandal broke this past summer. Jim has denied having a physical relationship with the woman, but he did admit to sending inappropriate text messages.
