Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge took a break from her Twitter war with former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville to talk about her former RHOC co-star Meghan King Edmonds’ marriage drama. And, after reaching out to Edmonds to find out the truth, Judge says that things are hard for Edmonds right now and she wishes her well.
Judge told The Daily Dish that she reached out to Edmonds because she felt bad for her and because she doesn’t believe everything she reads. Judge explained that she told Edmonds she wasn’t sure what was true, but she was there for her no matter what. The former RHOC star ended up responding, saying that things were “kind of rough.”

Edmonds will be making a cameo this season on RHOC, and Judge said it was nice to have her on and get some girl time.
“She had a chance to get away and come spend some time with us I kind of felt like it was the same Meghan,” said Judge. “She just has three little kids now, so she was excited to get away and have some girl time. But she’s still the same Meghan.”
ICYMI, Meghan’s husband Jim reportedly sent inappropriate texts to a woman named Jennifer McFelia Villegas – AKA the “MLB Mistress” and the “Baseball Madame” – while Meghan was pregnant with their twins Hart and Hayes. The former St. Louis Cardinal baseball player says that the affair wasn’t physical, but he did admit that he crossed the line with the texts.
Meghan says that she has dealt with more drama this past summer because of her husband’s bad behavior than she ever did on RHOC. She told Page Six that a lot of people tell her she is strong, but she doesn’t want to be strong anymore.
“But I think it’s possible to be strong and still feel all the feelings of sadness, anger, regret, and guilt. Like question everything in the world, but still move forward,” Meghan said.
Jim and Meghan live in St. Louis with their two-year-old daughter Aspen and their one-year-old twins. He works as a TV broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest and she is raising the kids and keeping fans up to date on Instagram.
As for Jim’s texting affair with Villegas, Meghan said she felt “totally blindsided” by the story published on the website AllAboutTheTea.com. She says that Jim did confess to his bad behavior and apologized. She also says that she has learned to trust her husband more in the weeks since the story broke because she learned more about Villegas’ scandalous behavior with professional athletes.
Tamra, what your not gonna do is call out Bethenny who has done more for the housewives franchise then you ever will. Take a seat, we know your custody situation. She chose to walk away to be w/her daughter. Most viewers wish u would.#RHONY #RHOC

“This woman has gotten thousands and thousands of dollars — it’s her job,” Meghan alleged. “She goes after baseball players, she baits them, and they’re stupid and weak to take the bait, but they do it, sometimes. Once I found that out, it kind of made me feel a little bit better that this wasn’t something that [Jim] sought out.”
New episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County air Tuesday nights on Bravo.
