Meghan King Edmonds may have once been friends with Kortnie O’Connor, who is now dating her estranged husband, but according to an In Touch Weekly report on March 6, the Real Housewives of Orange County cast member isn’t planning on rekindling their friendship anytime soon.
Just as Jim and Kortnie were seen posing for an Instagram photo during a trip to Nashville with Jim’s daughter, Hayley Edmonds, an insider shared Meghan’s thoughts about her future relationship with the model turned realtor.
Meghan and Kortnie “had a past,” a source close to reality star told the magazine, but they aren’t “going to be lunching” together “any time soon.”
According to the report, Meghan has moved on from her marriage to Jim but when it comes to her future with Kortnie, she isn’t in a hurry to “become buddies” quite yet.
“If it becomes more serious, then [Meghan will] figure out a plan,” the insider said. “Meghan isn’t trying to plan Jim’s future, but he and Kortnie do seem to be getting on well.”
“Right now, Meghan doesn’t want any women influencing her and Jim’s kids but her,” the source added.
Meghan and Jim were married for five years and share three children together, including three-year-old daughter Aspen, and one-and-a-half-year-old twin sons Hayes and Hart.
“Knowing Jim, he’s probably already planning a future with Kortnie,” the insider continued. “I don’t know if he’s talking about marriage with her, [or] more kids, but I wouldn’t put it past him.”
Jim has been married three times so far.
Meanwhile, a second source told the magazine that Jim, who previously played professional baseball for the St. Louis Cardinals, is pretty much “obsessed” with Kortnie just months into their romance.
“He says he’s having a great time and he’s finally happy,” the insider shared. “They have fun together and they make a great couple.”
Jim began dating Kortnie just months after filing for divorce from Meghan.
According to Meghan, who put Jim and Kortnie on blast on her podcast, Intimate Knowledge, in January, the couple traveled to Mexico with one another earlier this year to attend the birthday party of one of Jim’s friends.
Since then, they’ve been keeping a low profile with one another as they allegedly spend time together in St. Louis, where Jim is currently living in the massive dream home he spent the past couple of years building with his soon-to-be-ex-wife, Meghan.
