These reality show marriages are just crazy pants. Meghan King Edmond and Jim Edmonds are supposedly filing for divorce. When last we paid attention to these two, Jim had allegedly filed for divorce the day after their five year anniversary.
Meghan said that Jim and the nanny both lied to her face about going to a hockey game together. Jim and the nanny claimed that nothing inappropriate was going on. Yet, the nanny’s boyfriend seems to have dumped her as well.
Then Jim went on a smear campaign on social media. He called Meghan a narcissist among many other nasty comments. His ex-wife joined in on the fun and so did a couple of his kids. It was really ugly. Very, very nasty.
And now this?
Is The Divorce Off?
“After what has been one of the most emotionally exhausting sleepless five days of my life resulting from a combination of anger, embarrassment, trying to understand, sadness to simply flat, I would like to make this statement. The last couple years have been rough on my wife and me for many reasons. Marriage is difficult but add three small children under three, two adolescent children, two adult children, building a house and two busy, hard-working spouses and the stress of living our lives in the public eye. At times, we are exhausted and feel our life has become one of distrust, kids, work, house, sleep and repeat.”
What are theses jobs these two have? Meghan writes a blog post every week or two. Jim sometimes does the color commentary for baseball games.
“It saddens me tremendously that my wife is hurt. After having a few days to digest the situation, I realize that something that occurred in a split second spiraled out of control with no way to stop it. We were both separately surprised to find out that the media had received details of our private situation without our knowledge. We both carry an extremely large load and most of our issues could have been worked out if we had more more time for us. With our busy careers and the addition of our son’s medical needs, we were lacking quality time together.”
Again with the “busy careers?” You were the one who was putting everything about your relationship out on front street. THAT WAS YOU. Five days of nasty comments about your wife.
“I’m removing myself and all of my family from this unnecessary publicity that I obviously have never quite enjoyed. I have way too much love for my wife and kids for this to happen and it’s time for us to get back to the private life we used to live. Meghan is a truly special woman who my kids are so fortunate to have as their mother. Hoping for some peace, normalcy, and the ability to move forward in a healthy, happy direction for every single person involved. I love my family and will make it right again,”
Suddenly, there is no divorce and he is going to make things right? I don’t know who wrote this or what his angle is with this statement but this is really bizarro world. How do you even think you can come back from this?
Thoughts? I think we should never have another guy named Jim on Bravo. All of them suck.
