LeAnn Edmonds has died.
During the 10th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, fans met Meghan King Edmonds, the third wife of MLB star Jim Edmonds. They also became privy to the family’s odd situation, which involved a close-knit relationship between Edmonds’ former wife and present wife, as well as with LeAnn Edmonds’ teenage daughter, Haley.
On the show, Meghan has spoke openly about LeAnn Edmonds’ cancer diagnosis, as well as how it differs from that of Vicki Gunvalson’s boyfriend, Brooks Ayers. Sadly, while Ayers continues to fight his cancer, which has been revealed to be stage 3 Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, LeAnn Edmonds has passed away.
On July 22, Reality Tea reported the tragic news, claiming they had just learned of LeAnn Edmonds’ death.
Just hours ago, Haley Edmonds confirmed the news of her mother’s death in an emotional post on her Instagram page.
“Early this morning I lost the most important person in my life. I’m so blessed to have had these past 17 years with you. But that will never be enough for me. I can’t imagine my life without you and I never imagined this day would come. You were an inspiration to everyone who knew you and I will aspire to be everything you were. You truly lived life to the fullest and were such a fighter. The memories we made will forever be instilled in me and I’ll never forget the good times we had. You were not only my mom, but my best friend. Thank you for everything you’ve thought me and for the wisdom you’ve given me. I will never ever stop loving you. Life won’t be easy without you but I know you will be with me every step of the way. Rest in peace mommy, I love you with all my heart.”
On Twitter, Meghan shared a tweet, seemingly in regard to the sad announcement about LeAnn Edmonds.
“Time has ceased But cherished memories still linger This is the way of life and all things We shall meet again”
