Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan King Edmonds opened up about her new life as a single mom in Los Angeles while appearing on her former co-star Heather Dubrow’s Podcast One show, Heather Dubrow’s World on February 20.
Months after her husband Jim Edmonds filed for divorce, Meghan joined Heather on her podcast and opened up about the way she’s been coping with her new schedule, which includes balancing her career with her life at home with daughter Aspen, 3, and twins Hayes and Hart, 1.
While Meghan admitted to having one live-in nanny, she said that it’s been tough balancing her podcasting gig on Intimate Knowledge with her gig as a mom.
”I’m tired a lot. I think I’m going through what most every single mom can probably relate to in the whole world. You’re trying to work and make a living. You’re trying to focus on kids and when I do have the kids, it’s 100 percent all of the time,” she explained to Heather.
As Heather, who shares four children with Botched‘s Dr. Terry Dubrow, agreed that being a working mom is extremely tough, Meghan said she struggles to tend to her basic needs as she deals with her three, high-energy kids at home.
“There’s not somebody else you can say, ‘Hey, I need five minutes. Let me go take a bath,’” she vented.
In addition to having three children, one of Meghan’s children has special needs and is currently in therapy for several hours a day to treat his neurological disorder.
After being asked how she’s handling her new life, Meghan said she’s doing well overall.
“It’s good. I feel I’m in a great place. I just bought my nanny a car. I bought myself a car. To open my garage door and look at my two cars that I bought and think about my house and my kids and my nanny, who I’m taking care of, these five people that are under my responsibility, it’s empowering,” she explained to her longtime friend Heather.
As Meghan considers a potential return to _The Real Housewives of Orange County, her estranged husband Jim has been living in the dream home they built together and spending time on vacation, most recently traveling to Cabo to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a number of unnamed women.
In January, just after Meghan accused Jim of dating a woman she used to be friends with and once had a threesome with, TMZ shared photos of Jim and the mystery woman together in both Cabo and Newport Beach, California.
