Meghan King Edmonds may not be ready to date quite yet, but when she is, she has the perfect guy in mind.
Months after her now-estranged husband, Jim Edmonds, suddenly filed for divorce after five years of marriage, the Real Housewives of Orange County star was heard speaking of her dream partner during a taping of her new podcast with Brooke Burke, Intimate Knowledge.
“I just want somebody who’s supporting me and isn’t jealous or trying to suppress,” the mother-of-three explained, according to a report shared by Us Weekly on January 3. “You know, somebody who grows with me — instead of, like, staying stagnant at a certain place. Like, to me that’s intimacy. I just need that partner next to me who’s gonna hold my hand.”
According to Meghan, she wants someone in her life who will stand by her as she laughs and cries without taking a stand against her or judging her. As she explained, she hopes to find a partner who will not think of her any differently amid her ups and downs, and someone who will love her just the way she is.
Meghan’s estranged husband filed documents to end their marriage just one day after they celebrated their five-year wedding anniversary, and a short time later, he fought back against claims of an inappropriate relationship with their nanny, Carly Wilson. During Meghan and Jim’s marriage, they welcomed three children, including their 3-year-old daughter Aspen and 1-year-old twin sons Hayes and Hart.

Christmas morning: full of joy and laughter (…and also oversleeping because your toddler was in your bed so you couldn’t check your alarm volume and turns out it was at ZERO and you didn’t find out till 7:26am… when your twin boys are screaming and the alarm ***silently*** has been going off since 6am… but you’ve been helping Santa with duties/aka installing – literally – a new play room, and didn’t get to sleep till 2am; stressing out your kids don’t see the “big gift” right away; putting your premade casseroles in the oven 1.5 hours late then forgetting you have to cook a special syrup even though you still haven’t brushed your teeth/hair but your entire family is over – each looking like a snack bc they prepared properly – and hungrily awaiting their promised breakfast; all whist 3 terrorists parasitically demand their milk with full diapers awaiting my changing.) Christmas, such a magical holiday. ???? Btw I think many moms can relate, right? If so, please share your experiences with me. I could use some solidarity ????????????????
In November of last year, per Us Weekly, Meghan and Jim agreed on a custody arrangement for their three kids, and weeks later, Meghan told the magazine that she was hopeful that she and Jim would be able to co-parent their children in a civil manner.
“I think the New Year especially, and the new decade, is a great way to kind of launch positive thinking,” she explained.
Meghan also said on Brooks Laich and Gavin DeGraw’s podcast, How Men Think, that she was doing her best to stay strong amid her divorce from Jim, even though she was feeling vulnerable and experiencing a vast array of emotions, as The Inquisitr previously reported.
“That balance is really tough,” she admitted.
At the same time, the magazine revealed that after her split from Jim, Meghan chose to relocate from their former home in St. Louis, Missouri, to a new, long-term rental home in Los Angeles, California.
