After the former Real Housewives of Orange County cast member admitted to being “rattled” and “shocked” by the breakup, an insider revealed that their living situation, which featured Meghan in St. Louis with her kids and Cuffe in Los Angeles, where he works as an attorney, played a role in their decision to part ways.
“It had to do with distance,” an insider revealed to E! News. “Meghan cannot uproot the children from where they currently live and he lives and works in California.”
“It was not a relationship rooted in that much practicality. She had hopes of being able to spend more time in California but the kids cannot just be moved,” the insider continued.
“I did reach out to her. I’m not going to disclose what she said but she’s devastated,” Tamra stated. “From what I understand, he lives in LA and she lives in St. Louis. So that’s got to be challenging in itself. It’s not shocking. I’m not shocked. [But] I feel bad. I mean, we’ve all met somebody, fell in love and thought, ‘This is the one.’ And then afterwards, you’re like, “Ugh, thank god I didn’t marry him.'”
Continuing on, Tamra said that Meghan never wanted her marriage to end.
“She’s truly devastated. It’s not what she wanted. It’s sad,” Tamra noted.
Tamra then added that in addition to Meghan’s heartache over her split, she’s having to deal with the backlash that comes with such a whirlwind romance being lived out in the public.
“Can you imagine publicly dealing with that? People are like, ‘Told you so,’ or, ‘That was too soon.’ She’s probably dealing with all that, beating herself up, being sad,” Tamra guessed.
The Real Housewives of Orange County season 16 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
