Meghan King Edmonds has had an extremely difficult year by any measure. Her husband, former baseball player Jim Edmonds, filed for divorce amid cheating allegations, and then their son, Hart, was diagnosed with a brain disease.
All of this has taken a serious toll on the former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star, who opened up to fans in a blog post on Monday.
“Let me break it down: NO! I am not ok,” she wrote.
“Within the last 5 months I have found out my son has a lifelong brain injury, my husband had a sexting relationship with another woman, my husband also betrayed me with his inappropriate relationship with a nanny, my husband filed for divorce via the tabloids, the police questioned my fitness as a mother, I took a new job as a podcaster, and I moved into a new home in California so I can devote family time to all of my kids during Hart’s therapy. Let me reiterate: all of this has happened within the last 150 days,” Edmonds continued.
“But y’all, I’M SKINNY. I’ve always been thin,” she said. “For the record, I am naturally thin and I’ve always had a healthy relationship with food.
“But right now, I am too skinny. I don’t like it. I won’t weigh myself because I’m scared to see what the scale says. When my clothes don’t fit I pretend like they do anyway. But I’m not hungry,” she added.
“I know I should eat but I’m surviving on adrenaline but decaying on stress (did I mention what has happened in the last 150 days? And let’s just really lay it on by being in the thick of the holidays).”
“When I have a free minute I am either trying to work, responding to something that every person in the world deals with (like dusting windowsills or cleaning dishes or calling my mom back or going to Target), or thinking about how I need to eat but I’m not hungry. I’m not hungry.
“This is the first time in my life I’ve counted calories and it’s in the opposite way most Americans do so.”
“I agree, I’m too thin. Acknowledgement is powerful and allows me to psychologically take back control. However, you hurt me when you mention it. I’m working on it,” she told fans. “Please, sit back and watch me thrive despite my setbacks. The best is yet to come.”
