Meghan King Edmonds is explaining her decision to go public with the threesomes she had with her estranged husband, Jim Edmonds.
Weeks after telling listeners of her podcast, Intimate Knowledge, that she and Jim had been intimate with a friend of hers, who he is allegedly now dating, early on in their marriage, the former Real Housewives of Orange County star is revealing why she decided to speak so candidly about what she and Jim did behind closed doors during their five-year marriage.
During an interview with Hollywood Life on January 31, Meghan admitted that it was hard for her to come forward about the threesomes she had with Jim, even though she’s lived her life in the public eye for the past several years.
“I mean it was a really hard day for me,” Meghan admitted. “It’s tough to share intimate details of my life, especially something that I had never shared with anyone before.”
While speaking of her threesomes with Jim, Meghan admitted that she felt comfortable participating in the act because the other woman was her friend.
Since her threesome reveal, Meghan has done her best to avoid reading to much into what fans online have been saying but noted that the majority of what she’s been seeing has been positive.
“I would say overall I’ve had a lot of support and just people commending me for speaking about something that I’ve found to be such a source of shame to kind of like be able to bury that and own who I am,” Meghan explained to the outlet.
On her podcast series earlier this month, Meghan said that she had learned that Jim was dating the women they were intimate with just one day before they taped the episode.
“It was just really fresh to me,” she admitted. “It felt like very raw and vulnerable and I just thought like the moment was right to come out with something that almost would help so many other people. That was my goal to kind of like squash any type of shame and to own who we are.”
After learning what his estranged wife had said about him and their private life on Intimate Knowledge, he shared a statement.
“I am tired of the lies for publicity. I filed for divorce over 90 days ago. Meghan has filed as well,” he told E! News. “The marriage is and has been over.”
According to Jim, he did bring “a date” with him to a friend’s surprise party in Cabo but insisted that the woman he was with was no longer friends with Meghan and hadn’t spoke to his former partner in three years.
While Jim has seemingly moved on from his marriage to Meghan, Meghan is not yet dating. Instead, she continues to focus on her three children, including her disabled son Hart, reportedly without the support of Jim.
In July of last year, Meghan learned Hart was suffering from irreversible brain damage and quickly put him in therapy to help him keep up with his peers.
Meghan and Jim called it quits on their marriage in October of last year after five years of marriage and three children, including three-year-old Aspen and Hart’s twin brother, one-year-old Hayes.
