PHOTO: Jim Edmonds Seemingly Shades Ex Meghan by Gushing Over Girlfriend Kortnie Being a 'Working Woman' and Doing "Real Work" After She Lands a Billboard Ad

Jim Edmonds took to Instagram on Tuesday to reveal that his girlfriend, Kortnie O’Connor, had landed a major modeling gig.

Along with a photo of her new advertisement, the former Real Housewives of Orange County cast member gushed over Kortnie’s accomplishment while also telling his fans and followers that he was proud of his partner for the “real work” she is doing in the world of modeling and potentially shading his estranged wife Meghan King Edmonds.

“I love that this face is plastered on billboards all over the country. Great job babe! #beautiful #Loveit #Proud #RealWork #WorkingWomen,” Jim wrote in the caption of his June 30 post.

After admitting that her new ad isn’t exactly a Sports Illustrated pictorial in the comments section of Jim’s post, Kortnie received some love from Jim’s daughter Hayley Edmonds, who shared a few heart-eyed emojis in her own comment.

Then, after Jim received a message from another one of his followers, who encouraged him to “live,” “love,” and “laugh,” the former MLB player seemingly shaded Meghan and their marriage by suggesting he was doing all three of those things now that he’s with Kortnie.

“I’m doing it now brother. Thanks!” he replied.

As RHOC fans may have seen, Jim threw some major shade at Meghan just one week ago when he slammed their five-year marriage as “loveless and abusive” while praising Kortnie for bringing him back to life and making him a better person and a better father.

“If it wasn’t for this girl, I don’t think I would be here right now. She showed up in my life just at the right time. I was in such a dark place; one that I didn’t think could happen to me. I was going through hell ending a loveless and abusive relationship. The lies and accusations that followed the breakup only put me deeper into a funk. Along came this beautiful woman by chance, who lit up my world and brought me back to life,” he wrote.

Following the diss, Meghan told Hollywood Life she is “only focused on positivity and maintaining my children’s happiness and stability.”
