10 Things You Didn’t Know About RHOC Star Meghan King Edmonds
Meghan King Edmonds joined The Real Housewives of Orange County in season 10 and has been a main cast member ever since. As the youngest woman on the show surrounded by veteran housewives, Edmonds had to solidify her spot with a grand entrance — and that she did! She quickly proved she wasn’t going to be pushed around by the other women or silenced for her honest opinions. While many people may feel like they know her because she’s a television personality, there’s still a lot that people don’t know! So, here’s a look at 9 things you might not have known about this Orange County housewife!
10. Her Marriage to MLB Star Jim Edmonds
Meghan raised a few eyebrows when she revealed to the other women on the show that she was not the first or second wife of Jim Edmonds, but the third! The couple married in St. Louis on October 24, 2014. Their wedding took place just under a year after he divorced his second wife, Allison Jayne Raski. They met through mutual friends and enjoyed a whirlwind romance, getting married less than a year after they first met! Edmonds has a great reputation in the MLB for hitting 30 home runs in just five seasons with a .285 batting average. His career as a professional athlete lasted for 17 seasons with the Los Angeles Angels and the St. Louis Cardinals. He’s been awarded eight Gold Gloves and one World Series title. He no longer plays professional baseball and instead works as a FOX sportscaster in St. Louis where Meghan visits him regularly. Edmonds also owns a restaurant called Winfield’s Gathering Place.
9. She’s Been Married Before
Her first husband was an attorney named Brad McDill. The two wed back in July of 2007 shortly after she graduated from the University of Mississippi. According to Radar Online, Brad and Meghan divorced on October 14, 2011 and cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their separation. The divorce was finalized in November of that same year and she changed her name back to Meghan O’Toole King. In their divorce the two basically kept what was theirs prior to the marriage and split the sale of their home 50/50 which was valued at around $225,000.
