Kelly Dodd has blasted ex-pal Meghan King Edmonds over her cheating confession. The Real Housewives of Orange County star has weighed in about her former co-star’s admission that her husband, Jim, sexted with another woman.
Fans were shocked this week when Jim confessed his infidelity while Meghan was pregnant–and then Meghan confirmed the news. Kelly — who was on RHOC with Meghan on seasons 11 and 12 before the latter left the show — has reminded followers that she spoke of Jim’s cheating years ago and snarked that it’s “karma” for Meghan.
Kelly wrote a comment when a Real Housewives Instagram fan page referenced Jim’s affair and Meghan’s response on Friday, June 14. “This is old news .. I said this on the reunion years ago,” Kelly responded.
Although Kelly claimed she was “not kicking [Meghan] down,” she added, “I just don’t understand why this is news now?”
At a RHOC 2017 reunion, Kelly told Meghan that Jim “has a mistress” but Meghan, who was pregnant with her first child, daughter Aspen, 2, at that time, said she knew Kelly’s claims were “not true.” Meghan told her co-star then, “We are pregnant for God’s sake, Kelly. My God.”
But now Kelly seems vindicated and also on Instagram, a fan wrote to Kelly, “She always was smug to you like her marriage was so perfect, looks like it sweetheart,” adding the hashtag, “#karma.”
Kelly replied, “Totally! #Karma is right girl!”
According to Reality Blurb, Kelly then wrote to the website to explain her seeming attack on Meghan, noting, “Meghan came after me on the reunion years ago .. I have compassion for her of course . But this is old news .. I was wondering why is out now ?? .. I am sorry but ladies if you marry a man that has a history of cheating and a professional athlete your chances of him being faithful is very slim .. come on!!”
As RadarOnline.com readers know, the scandal first erupted after All About The Tea published allegations of Jim’s conversations with a “baseball madame.” The site claimed Jim cheated on his second wife, Allison, with the woman, and then reconnected with her when Meghan was pregnant with their 1-year-old twins.
Though Jim denied they had a physical relationship during that time, the site published screenshots of their texts,
some of which included photos of his penis. The site also claimed Jim sent the woman a video of him touching himself on the same day Meghan gave birth to their twins.
Meghan reportedly confronted “baseball madame” to learn more about the online affair. After that, Jim admitted to Us Weekly on June 13, “Regrettably, I had a lapse in judgment. I engaged in an inappropriate conversation
with this person. At no time was there any type of relationship or physical contact. Absolutely none. This is someone trying to profit from my name. I am aware she has done this to others in the past.”
The retired baseball player, who shares three kids with Meghan, 34, said he never intended to destroy his family, and is doing what he can to fix the situation.
“Clearly, I made a very poor decision to expose myself and my family to this type of person. For this, I am truly sorry and sought forgiveness from my wife,” he wrote in his statement. “I’m outraged over the intent to ruin my family and intend to take legal action. We were never having any problems in our marriage. My attorney is in possession of documents wherein this person has admitted fabricating large portions of her ‘story.’” But then humiliated Meghan admitted that Jim had been unfaithful, saying she was dealing with the pain of her marriage crumbling amid ascary health crisis for their son, Hart.
“I found out the same way you guys did, in the tabloids. I never left a voicemail for the other woman. I called Jimmy and he confessed to me that he had exchanged lewd photos with this woman over the course of several months and a physical relationship never existed. He paid her off to protect me so I’d never find out,” Meghan claimed hours after Jim admitted to the extramarital affair.Get the exclusive celebrity scoop on all the stars you love before any of your friends by subscribing to our new podcast Straight Shuter below!
