Candid: Meghan King has taken to her blog to speak on the cheating accusations as well as more accusations about Jim
Jim, 49, was previously caught having a sexting affair with a woman before during and after Meghan’s pregnancy with their twins Hayes and Hart.
In the lengthy blog post she shared, which she titled, ‘Broken,’ she said that four months after she found out about his affair, sje found out their son Hart had a life-long brain injury.
The mother of three revealed that her family rallied behind them and reached out to Jim to say they supported their marriage and that they loved him and hope he would put effort to fix it.
Adding: ‘His family and closest friends did not reach out to me – the one who was betrayed, the one who had to read on the internet that her husband paid his virtual mistress hush money in an attempt to bury the truth.’
Meghan claimed that they blamed her for his sexting, pointing at her blog or her social media following, noting that no one called or texted her about their brain injured son.
She wrote in her blog that it was one of her hardest times in her life and she was being ‘blamed’ by his family for it: ‘It was heartbreaking to realize that I did not have the love or support of Jim’s family – instead they were actively ignoring me or trying to further sabotage our marriage. Family dynamics are complicated – ours more so than most – but I still expected more from them. That hurt.’
Meghan wrote that ‘anyone who has lived through infidelity knows how difficult it is to overcome and regain a strong marriage. It requires both people to be all in. It requires the betrayer to put in the time and effort to repair the trust that was broken.’
Thoughts: The reality star, 35, said she is ‘broken for my family. I am buried in despair. I cry at the despair’ as well as claiming that her husband went ‘drinking and partying’ with ‘several’ of the babysitters and his daughter Hayley, 22, was ‘present’
Adding: ‘In the wake of the sexting scandal, my husband was drinking and partying with much younger women, including several of our babysitters, and I found this gallivanting inappropriate, immature, and downright odd.’
She continued: ‘While I initially wrote it off because during several of these outing, his 22-year-old daughter was present, given his previous indiscretions, I was uncomfortable.’
Meghan added: ‘Even more so when he started lying about where he was going or who he was going with – and deleting entire text conversations on his phone with several of these young women.’
The mother of three said that after his sexting affair he agreed with their therapist to never delete messages or conversations and also allow his location to be available on his phone.
Throwback: Meghan added: ‘Even more so when he started lying about where he was going or who he was going with – and deleting entire text conversations on his phone with several of these young women’
Meghan revealed that she found out he went to a hockey game with one of their babysitters, he ‘lied about’ it and he refused to include her on text messages.
She did however say that she doesn’t know if he slept with any of their babysitters or if they ‘were just being exceedingly inappropriate by hanging out social without either of them telling me (and Jim expressly lying to me about it.’
The star thinks he did not sleep with them but she says she doesn’t get ‘why he’d lie’ and why the babysitter would too.
She said that she loves her husband and is ‘devastated that our marriage is being broken up in the ugliest and messiest way. I am sad that members of Jim’s family are reveling in our demise. And I am saddest for the children.’
The star continued: ‘My step kids, Landon and Sutton, have lost a stepmother whom they love and will have to endure another divorce and broken home in their short lifetime. And my three babies who will likely never remember their parents being married.’
Meghan said that she promises to ‘facilitate healthy, consistent, and ongoing relationships with their father and with his family despite the hurt I feel from them because my children should not reap the karma of my personal situations.’
Ending the post with a quote: ‘When you’re in a dark place, you sometimes tend to think you’ve been buried. Perhaps you’ve been planted. Bloom.’

Meanwhile, Carly Wilson, who is just 22 and one of four nannies employed by the couple to care for their three young children, has strongly denied any accusation of infidelity, and asked the reality star to ‘be kind’.
Via Instagram she wrote: ‘In the past week, allegations have been made about me which are not based in fact. I have not and never would participate in any action involving infidelity.
‘I consider this a private matter in someone else’s marriage and will not comment on it further.’ Tagging her post ‘be kind’, she finished with ‘I wish the entire family well.’

Jim Edmonds also denied the accusations and came to his nanny’s defense in some comments on her social media post.
Instagram account Comments by Bravo, first noticed that Jim posted a message in defense of Carly after another user accused her of deleting pictures of Jim and her boyfriend.
The user penned: ‘An innocent person would not delete photos with Jim and then delete her bf pics. If you are innocent you leave it all up because supposedly nothing happened.’
Jim himself actually replied to the shade: ‘She is scared to death and 22 years old. What would you do?’
The digital sparring match continued when another user answered Jim’s seemingly rhetorical question.

Jim himself replied to haters: ‘She is scared to death and 22 years old. What would you do?’
‘@jimedmonds5 delete all the comments and make my account private. Oh and I would NOT go alone to events with my married boss.’
Jim responded again directly to the criticism: ‘I didn’t take her to the event by myself. Get your facts straight. I was with my best friend and his child.’
He continued: ‘I was trying to do something nice for the girl who just had her boyfriend dumped her. She has [been] like a daughter to me and all of this bulls**t will not change that.’
In another exchange a hater called out the former MLB player for coming to Carly’s defense after he said the rumors were ‘not true.’
Carly has been a staple in the Edmonds household since Jim and Meghan’s daughter Aspen was born two years ago, and even had a major shoutout on Meghan’s lifestyle blog with a post titled: ‘It Takes A Village.’
Carly’s words come as Meghan’s stepdaughter, Hayley Edmonds, spoke out to insist she’s been ‘waiting’ for her baseball star dad Jim Edmonds to divorce her reality star stepmom.
Hayley, 22, told Us Weekly: ‘I’ve been waiting for it. For probably… three years? I think it’s impossible to be happy with someone so… I don’t know if I would say narcissistic but, she, like, creates her own problems and loves conflict and things like that. The selfishness is miserable for anyone to be around.
‘My whole family has grown closer because we have all had to stay silent in hopes to protect my dad and no one can do it anymore.’

Hayley moved in with Meghan, 35, and father-of-seven Jim as a teen, as her own mother battled cancer. She was just 17 when her mother, LeAnn Edmonds Horton, sadly died, and her difficult relationship with her stepmom was chronicled on RHOC.
She said of this period: ‘I dropped out of high school to take care of my sick mother and [Meghan] came in and completely manipulated me to get on the show and told me I was making it harder on my mom to be there and I was giving her anxiety and I needed to live with Meghan and give my mom less stress.’

Like his daughter, Jim is also speaking out. The 49-year-old former baseball pro took to social media on Monday morning to deny all claims of an extramarital affair with their help.
Jim accused Meghan of being ‘disgusting and irresponsible’ and said while ‘we all make mistakes, this is not one of those times.’
His post began: ‘** BREAKING NEWS ** It’s one thing to be accused of something. It’s another thing to be so negligent and so careless, and ruin the lives of innocent young people.
‘I did not sleep with our nanny. She’s not just a nanny, she is someone that we brought into our house and promised to protect and look after while she was in our home. We have been treating and raising this young girl like she is our own child! For someone to accuse me of sleeping with her is not only wrong, it’s disgusting and irresponsible.’
He continued: ‘Just because I am an athlete and I was portrayed as a bad person on Bravo TV. Doesn’t mean I don’t have a clue what life is all about. We made a promise to that young girls mom, that We would take care of her and make sure that she was safe while she was in our hands.’
The former athlete went on to say he would not be standing for the lies and is ‘fighting back’ to ensure the ‘truth’ is out there.
Straight from JE: Jim’s note was lengthy as he denied any intimacy with the 22-year-old
‘I will not sit here and take this bulls**t without fighting back. Just because you’re extremely whitty and intelligent, and know how to play the Instagram game. Doesn’t give you the right to use that platform to wrongfully accuse. Not only is it irresponsible. It is dangerous and puts my family in harms way. We all make mistakes. This is not one of those times.’
He ended the caption with: ‘My heart is broken for everyone involved. if you get anything out of this post. Get the truth.’
Jim filed for divorce from the former Real Housewives of Orange County vet on Friday, just a day after the couple’s five-year wedding anniversary.
Just last week Meghan revealed the pair were working on their relationship and attending couple’s therapy, as she sat down with Bravo’s Daily Dish.
She insisted she wanted to stay together for the sake of their young children.
Speaking on Wednesday, she said the pair would be heading to a joint therapy session straight after the interview.
She explained: ‘I think after such a breach of trust, it’s so hard to rebuild from there, especially [with] so many distractions, like our son’s health problems and two other little babies, as well. And so to focus on the two of us as a couple, is really hard.’
Meghan said she owed it to her children to give their father a chance at redemption after his indiscretion.
‘I’m hurt right now and our life is massively affected, but if we were to split just because of his indiscretion then there’s multiple other people who are affected, as well.’
Just four months ago Jim, who played in the outfield for the Los Angeles Angels and St. Louis Cardinals, was exposed as sending explicit messages to baseball groupie Jennifer Villegas, while Meghan was pregnant with their twins.
He even sent a video showing him pleasuring himself the same day Meghan was in hospital preparing to give birth to twins Hart and Hayes.
He maintains the relationship was never physical.
Meghan and Jim wed in October 2014 and share twin sons Hayes and Hart, who are 16-months-old as well as daughter Aspen, two.
Jim is the father of four other children from previous relationships: He shares daughters Lauren and Hayley, 22, with first wife, LeAnn Horton, son Landon, 13, and daughter Sutton, 10, with second wife Allison Jayne Raski.
Real Housewives Of Orange County star LeAnn Horton passed away of colon cancer in 2015 aged just 45.
The cheating revelations came as Meghan and Jim dealt with their son Hart’s health struggles.
Meghan has been candidly sharing her son’s progress in his therapy after doctors diagnosed him with brain damage, known clinically as periventricular leukomalacia.

Dealing with Hart’s treatment has kept Meghan away from home as she’s recently been seeking intensive treatment for the toddler in New Orleans, while her other two children remained at home in Missouri.
Additionally Meghan has been taking some time back in Los Angeles. The family moved out of California following the end of her time of RHOC.
Earlier this month the reality star gave followers a tour of the family’s sprawling St. Louis mansion, which is currently in the midst of being remodeled.
The couple have been working on the home together for some time, and she pointed out Jim’s office and walk-in closet in the video. The huge home also included a bowling alley and basketball court, and at the time of filming was still awaiting some final touches.
Meghan recently returned to the Bravo universe with an appearance on Real Housewives Of Orange County earlier this month.
