Jim Edmonds called into the September 21 episode of SiriusXM’s Andy Cohen Live, where he spoke to Andy Cohen about the swirling rumors regarding the end of his marriage to estranged wife Meghan King Edmonds.
Nearly one year after the former MLB player filed for divorce from the ex-Real Housewives of Orange County star, Jim accused Meghan of pushing for threesomes during their five-year marriage before accusing the other woman involved in his inappropriate sexting of “blackmail.”
“Was there something about the three ways or were you trying to have them?” Andy asked.
“That was all false. I don’t even know how she comes up with this stuff,” Jim replied. “To be honest with you, if we really want to go down that road, she was the one that was pushing for them. She just made up these stories. I think she really needed a storyline for her radio show, just like she needed a storyline for [her] last year on Housewives.”
“I’m just glad that I’m out of it and I’m happy and everything’s going good. And I’ve turned my life around,” he continued.
“I sent a picture that was inappropriate in the middle of some low times,” he explained. “My marriage was pretty much over. I was living with basically a roommate and I just got on a weak spot. I wasn’t having a sexting affair.”
Although the other woman accused Jim of sending pictures to her on the morning that his twins, Hayes and Hart, now one-year-olds, were born, Jim said he did nothing of the sort and that “everything out there is false.”
“This girl has been notorious for setting people up all over the baseball world,” he explained. “She’s got kids with random players. She’s got one guy who thinks he has a kid with her and the kid is not his, and she’s taking money from him. So it was a big blackmail scheme.”
According to Jim, the “sad thing” about the sexting incident was that “there was nothing [he] could do about it.”
“It’s almost like it was almost like a catfish blackmail, double duo,” he shared. “She turned out to be crazy. So I tried to back off from her, like, ‘Just like stop texting me’ or ‘Stop Instagramming me.’ And she kind of showed up one day unannounced in Atlanta. And then I was like, ‘I don’t even know who you are.’ She’s hideous-looking. Like, ‘You basically catfished me,’ and she’s like, ‘I’m going to blow you up. I’m going to tell your wife all this stuff.'”
Jim then admitted that the mess he created with the other woman was his fault because he should have never sent the picture, or pictures, to her.
“But that’s not the reason for the marriage falling apart at all,” he added.
