New marriage, new home, and a new TV venture can be a lot to take in all at once but the Edmonds family is holding on strong. MLB legend Jim Edmonds’ wife Meghan was theÂ Real Housewives of Orange County newcomer this year and though she was in the middle of the drama due to cast member Vicki Gunvalson’s ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers’ cancer drama, Jim is sticking up for his wife as the family experienced their own recent loss of cancer.
Edmonds recently spoke about the show on CBS Sports Radio,Â “To me, the way I try to describe it to my wife, too â€” cause she gets into it and the big thing was the cancer and all that. My wife was going through something with my ex-wife and she was deep into it with the kids.”
“And she’s watching a person die, and then a guy that has cancer that opted not to ever do anything about it was kind of shocking. Here my wife’s trying to get my ex-wife into doctors and hospitals, and this guy’s getting doors opened for him and he’s not even showing up for appointments. So she got a little irritated with that and that kind of blew up…. Those girls need that drama because they need that show to survive. We don’t need that.”
As seen in the sneak-peak trailer for the show’s reunion, Jim made an appearance on the couch next to his wife. Part one will air Monday night.
