Meghan King Edmonds' estranges husband Jim Edmonds is opening up about their divorce and allegations that he cheated on his wife with the couple’s nanny. “It’s dangerous, irresponsible and hurtful to all to allow a rumor to be spread to the world because of insecurities,” he told Us Weekly.

Earlier on Saturday, he’d shared a post on his Instagram Stories that appeared to be about his split, writing, “No one can throw a bigger tantrum than a narcissist whose [sic] losing control of someone else’s mind.” He later shared an illustration of a woman angrily pointing a finger at a man with the words False Accusations Allegations at the bottom.

Shortly after, the former athlete took to social media to slam his estranged wife for “disgusting and irresponsible” allegations that he cheated on her with their nanny in a lengthy statement on Monday, October 28, via Instagram.

“** 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,” Jim wrote alongside a photo of an old magazine cover from his baseball days. “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 dont 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. I will not sit here and take this bulls—-t without fighting back,” Jim wrote on Monday. “Just because you’re extremely witty 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 concluded. “My heart is broken for everyone involved. if you get anything out of this post. Get the truth.”

Meanwhile, his daughter Hayley Edmonds, who appeared with Meghan on Season 10 came to her father and the nanny's defense.

“I’ve been waiting for it. For probably … three years?” the 22-year-old told Us Weekly about the split. “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, let alone to be married to her. 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.”

“I will say I didn’t look the best when I was on the show, but I got so much scrutiny from the way that she portrayed me like I was stupid and I didn’t care about anything,” Hayley told Us Weekly about her stint on the series. “In reality, like, I dropped out of high school to take care of my sick mother and she 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.” CLICK HERE to read the rest of the story!


Carole Radziwill was dragged into Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy's nasty custody battle in court, according to Radar Online. As Frankel faced off with her ex-husband Hoppy over their daughter Bryn, her former The Real Housewives of New York City co-star became a subject for her on the stand.

Earlier in court, Hoppy’s attorney was shut down after a line of questioning about Frankel filming with a therapist about her then-boyfriend Dennis Shield’s death on the Bravo hit reality series.

She insisted that her words were regularly misconstrued on the show.

“You don’t understand reality television and how it works,” she snapped at Hoppy’s lawyer, according to Radar Online. “You’re talking about taking one hour from a 40-hour taping, and condensing it down. So many things are said, and things are edited out and taken out of context.” CLICK HERE to read the rest of the story!

If you recall during the show's Season 7 finale episode that aired last week, Madix confronted Vanderpump about bashing the Toms, but the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star brushed off her concerns.During the show's After Show special, many of Madix’s co-stars took her side over her issues with LVP.

“Literally as the words were coming out of my mouth, I realized that it was a completely pointless endeavor,” Madix said of her conversation with Vanderpump, according to Us Weekly. “She’ll never take what I’m saying seriously. I’ll always be her, like, minion, you know? What is the point? All I’m going to do is make her mad. … She’ll get vindictive. She’ll try to get back at me for having this opinion and these concerns, so you know what? Screw it. I’ll just go back to my f–king corner and stay out of it and live my life.”

“If Lisa says the sky is purple, every person in the entire world will be like, ‘Lisa’s word is gold, so the sky must be purple,’” she added. “She can do no wrong in anyone’s eyes, so it’s, like, really hard to have a difference of opinion with her.” CLICK HERE to read the rest of the story! 


According to a new report, Shanon Beador and David Beador recently faced off in court over their ongoing child and spousal support case. Apparently, David became angry after he failed to convince a judge to lessen his monthly child and spousal support payments to the Real Housewives of Orange County star. He allegedly stormed out of the Orange County courtroom on Thursday, February 7.

In addition, David was told by the judge that he “cannot order” her to stop drinking alcohol around their three daughters. During Thursday’s hearing, Judge James L. Waltz said he could not order Shannon to stop drinking because that would be illegal.

“I’m not going to make that order,” Waltz said, according to Radar Online. “I will make an order that neither you nor Shannon shall be impaired during your parenting time, but as for consumption of alcohol, you are free. We live in America and you are free to consume alcohol wherever you want. You can even get in a car after consuming alcohol. You can even consume alcohol with your kids in the car, although that makes my heart go wild. You may not drive while impaired. You may not parent while impaired. … She may not drink to the point of impairment at the presence of the children.”

The judge also said he did not “want to try this case twice,” and ordered both parties to come back in two months to discuss David’s request to lessen his child support and spousal support payments.

David told the court he believed he was paying too much in monthly support, especially since Shannon allegedly makes almost twice as much as he did in the past year. He also argued he now has 50 percent custody of his daughters, while the temporary support order approved by the judge last year noted Shannon had 85 percent custody of the girls. CLICK HERE to read the rest of the story!


There have been so many rumors circulating after Jax Taylor and his Vanderpump Rules co-stars Ariana Madix, Kristen Doute, and Tom Sandoval unfollowed each other on social media. Now, new details have come forward as to why some of the cast is feuding with Taylor.

“The unfollow had more to do with who Sandoval is hanging out with more so than anything else. It had absolutely nothing to do with Lance and the wedding,” a source told HollywoodLife.

“Tom has been nothing but a supportive friend and he’s always going to be there for Jax. Sandoval is always neutral and sometimes that bothers people, but he’s so not one to get caught up in the drama.”

While it’s unclear who unfollowed who first, “one could only assume that Tom Sandoval was taken back when he saw that Jax un-followed him on social media. He was disappointed in his decision to do that and is really confident he and Jax will get back to a great place again,” the source continued — suggesting Jax hit the unfollow button first. “Jax also removed [Sandoval] from his wedding party at one point, so he knows that Jax changes his mind constantly on feelings and things.” CLICK HERE to read the rest of the story!

So, I have Kelly Dodd on the line. I would like to ask her if she knows anything.”

Kelly Dodd, who feuded with the OG of the OC last season appeared on Lewis radio show to share her thoughts on the alleged report.

“Well, I cannot confirm nor deny. However, that’s the word on the street,” said Kelly.
