The cast of The Real Housewives have Meghan King Edmonds' back after her public split - except for Kelly Dodd. Many of the housewives are on Team Megan, except for a select few, which comes as no surprise to viewers.
When King Edmonds first made her debut back on The Real Housewives of Orange County in 2015 on the 10th season of the hit show, she was not a fan favorite. The tall blonde came off as a know-it-all and rubbed fans and her castmates the wrong way. King Edmonds married Jim Edmonds in October of 2014 and has three young children, Aspen, Hart, and Hayes.
On October 25, the reality star surprised everyone and filed for divorce from her husband of five years, Jim Edmonds, as reported by Us Weekly. The former housewife then took to her social media and posted a makeup-free selfie on her Instagram telling her followers that the news was still raw to her. In her post, King Edmonds accused the ex-baseball player of having cheated on her with their children’s nanny. The mother of three told her followers that their nanny had worked for them for many years and was treated like a family member. The famous family had four nannies and an au pair who lived with them, but identified that it was Carly Wilson, a 22-year-old girl who tempted her husband.
The young reality star called the police during her last argument with her husband, but the situation was resolved upon their arrival at the premises. After having accused her husband of an affair, Jim responded in a statement of his own saying that he did not have an affair with their nanny and that he was disappointed that his wife was so careless in deciding to ruin someone else’s life. His statement was posted on October 28 to his Instagram account, also saying this Wilson was not just a nanny for the family, but a young woman who they promised to protect and treated as if she was their own daughter.
Many of the housewives have voiced their opinion on the divorce drama, including the Real Housewives of Orange County’s O.G. Vicki Gunvalson, who predicted that King Edmonds' marriage would only last five years. Gunvalson had believed that because King Edmonds was not very nice to her that she probably was not very nice to her husband either. Not surprisingly, Kelly Dodd also interjected by saying she called it at the reunion after King Edmonds accused her of cheating on her then-husband, Michael Dodd, saying it is funny how the housewives who accuse usually end up being victims of cheating themselves. On a more positive note, Kyle Richards from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Stephanie Hollman of The Real Housewives of Dallas both showered King Edmonds in positive words, pointing out that she is young and beautiful, while her soon to be ex-husband is over the hill.
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Tuesdays at 8 PM EST on Bravo.
