RHOC fans are less than surprised over former housewife Meghan King Edmonds’ recent marriage woes. Her husband, Jim Edmonds, admitted last week to exchanging lewd texts and photos with another woman while Meghan was pregnant with the couple’s twins. Meghan left The Real Housewives of Orange County at the end of Season 12. She was only on the show for three seasons, but butted heads with co-star Vicki Gunvalson.
At one point toward the end of Meghan’s run on the show, Vicki said that her marriage wouldn’t last more than five years. Was she right, after all?
ICYMI: Jim Edmonds Admits to “InAppropriate Conversations” with Another Woman…
The cheating scandal blew up last week when gossip site AllAboutTheTea released explicit texts and videos the former baseball player sent to his mistress. Initially, Jim denied the allegations but eventually admitted to texting her in a “lapse of judgment.”
…But Denies Physical Affair
Despite allegations that he cheated on his previous wife with this same mistress, Jim continues to deny anything physical happening between them. Like most wives, Meghan chooses to believe that.
A physical affair or not, Jim sent the mistress an explicit video the very day Meghan gave birth to their twin sons. As it stands now, Meghan has made it clear she doesn’t plan to divorce.
Former RHOC Star Posts Video Joking She’s Pregnant
On Friday, June 21, Meghan posted an awkward video on her Instagram Stories. In the video, she can be seen with what appears to be a very large baby bump. She says, “I’m expecting… this” as she pulls out a stuffed toy.
The caption indicates that the video is her daughter’s idea. Was it also her daughter’s idea to write “BTW, my RIGHT hand is holding the camera. It’s a mirror image” in a blatant attempt at refuting rumors that she stopped wearing her wedding ring?

RHOC Upcoming Season 14
Even though Meghan isn’t on RHOC anymore, it’s possible the cheating scandal will be brought up on the show. The show is currently filming Season 14 and Vicki or another housewife could very well mention it off-hand.
Vicki is going through her own drama. Rumors have been swirling for months that she has been demoted to a part-time role, despite her recent engagement that is bound to be a big storyline on the show.
Another former Housewife, Gretchen Rossi, is about to have her first child with beau Slade Smiley any day now.
Season 14 of RHOC premieres on Bravo later this summer.
