While discussing co-parenting (or the lack thereof) and her love life, the Real Housewives of Orange County alum slammed Jim as she claimed he doesn’t care about being a parent to their three children, including daughter Aspen, 6, and twin sons Hayes and Hart, 4, and suggested they’d be better off without him.
“Co-parenting, what’s that? There’s no co-parenting. It’s parallel parenting, I suppose. I don’t even know what happens over there, it’s miserable,” Meghan admitted to Tammin Sursok and Roxy Manning on the March 22 episode of the Women on Top podcast.
According to Meghan, she and Jim use a court-ordered app to communicate. However, while she finds it “nice,” she doesn’t feel completely protected by it.
“It’s supposed to temper some of the verbal abuse, which hasn’t been happening lately, and I’m exposing that on my private subscription page on my Instagram,” she revealed. “When a narcissist is exposed like that, they don’t like it. They don’t play nice, and they don’t play fair ever … It’s not like that’s necessarily going to change anything for my well-being … It will just show everyone else how he really is.”
In addition to feeling that Jim is a “narcissist,” a term he’s used to describe her, Meghan shaded his role as a father to her kids.
“I don’t think he really necessarily cares about being a parent,” she admitted. “I think he cares about his reputation as a parent. And so I think he’ll show up for the kids because that’s what a dad is supposed to, which is fine because I think that’s good for my children, for them to understand that their dad loves them at whatever capacity he’s able.”
She even predicted he’ll one day disappear.
“In the future, I see that kinda going away a little bit, which would probably be the healthiest option,” she stated.
Looking back at the early moments of their relationship, Meghan said “red flags” were prevalent with Jim, claiming he love-bombed her with lavish gifts and trips when they began dating.
“I see exactly what happened and exactly how I fell for his trap. And I fell in love with him, truly and wholeheartedly. I loved that man, and he tricked me,” she claimed.
“He doesn’t think I work. He’ll say to me, ‘You’re not working,’ or he’ll send me pictures of my face and say, ‘What did you do to yourself? You look horrible.’ Constantly making fun [of me] to this day,” she shared.
Jim also attempted to have Meghan sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).
“All I have is my voice. I didn’t get money from him, I didn’t get love from him, he sh-ts on me all the time, but what I have is my voice, and no one is gonna silence that,” she explained of her decision against signing it.
Moving on to lighter topics, Meghan recalled a recent date she had with a woman.
“It was great, it was a lot of fun,” she shared. “I was like, totally open.”
But although she considers that she may be a lesbian, asking herself, “Is this why things haven’t worked out for me?,” she has since discovered she is “not a lesbian.”
“I identify as straight, but I don’t really feel like I need to identify as anything … I’m straight-ish,” she clarified.
Then, after noting that she is currently seeing a man, she noted that she will not be marrying him weeks into their relationship as she did with now ex-husband Cuffe Biden Owens, who she was married to for a couple of months in late 2021.
While Megan was quick to say “I do” after dating Cuffe for just weeks, she admitted on the podcast that she “didn’t want to get married.”
“He wanted to. He was like begging me to get married,” she revealed. “He said it was important to be a step-dad and not a boyfriend, and that [tugged] at my heartstrings because I was a stepmom.”
