“Talk to me in 5 years when you’re divorced,” were the infamous words uttered to Jim Edmonds by Vicki Gunvaslon about his marriage to Meghan King Edmonds. And it seems like Vicki’s prediction came true almost to the day.
On Friday, October 25th, Jim filed for divorce from this wife of 5-years. This shocking news came a day after the former Real Housewives of Orange County couple celebrated their 5-year wedding anniversary.
The former RHOC star accused her husband of “having an affair” with their children’s nanny before he filed for divorce.
According to a source Meghan confronted Jim and the nanny but they both denied the allegation.
“The nanny is someone who has worked for them for years and is like family,” one source explained to Us Weekly. Noting, that the Edmonds family employees four nannies and one live-in au pair. “During the argument, Meghan called the cops, but nothing came of it. Jim didn’t put his hands on her. The police chalked it up to a verbal dispute. No arrests were made.
Late Friday night, after the news of Jim’s filing, broke in the media, Meghan posted a selfie on Instagram with the caption “so raw.”
In the comment section of that photo, some fans speculated that Jim posted about the nanny he allegedly had an affair on his Instagram account.
We searched Jim’s Instagram and found a post from November 2018 that featured the Edmonds family nanny – Nanny Carly. The nanny has since deleted her account but the post remains on Jim’s Instagram.
Meghan all but confirmed this when she responded to one of the comments with a thumbs-up emoji.
Their split comes four months after a cheating scandal rocked their marriage. Back in June, news broke that Jim engaged in a sexting relationship with another woman while Meghan was pregnant with their twin sons.
“I engaged in an inappropriate conversation with this person,” Jim said in a statement at the time. “At no time was there any type of relationship or physical contact. Absolutely none. This is someone trying to profit from my name. I am aware she has done this to others in the past.”
Ultimately, Meghan decided to stay with Jim to try and make their marriage work. Just this week, the former RHOC star opened up about how difficult it’s been to repair her and Jim’s marriage.
“I think after such a breach of trust, it’s so hard to rebuild from there, especially [with] so many distractions, like our son’s health problems and two other little babies as well,” Meghan told Bravo’s The Daily Dish on Wednesday, October 24. “So, to focus on the two of us as a couple is really hard.”
This will be Jim’s third divorce. The father of seven was married twice before tying the knot with Meghan. As for Meghan, this will be her second divorce.
The Real Housewives of Orange County air Tuesdays at 9 pm EST on Bravo.
