save date? As Jim Edmonds and Kortnie O’Connor plans their romantic wedding, his ex-wife Megan King responded seemingly dodgy to her invitation.
“I’m sorry, that’s very frightening.” Teddy Mellencamp said the former Real Housewives of Orange County alum, 37, during the Thursday, July 28 episode of her “Two T’s in a Pod” podcast and revealed she’d received the engaged couple’s invite via a social media DM. “And I just have to [read] it. It reads: ‘Ladies, get inspired by your favorite Bond girl. Gentleman: black tie or white coat like James [Bond].'”
King – whose divorce with the 52-year-old former Cardinals player was finalized in May 2021 – admitted to Mellencamp, 41, that she hadn’t seen the duo’s save-the-dates before. “OK, alright, I mean, everyone has their different style,” the Missouri native responded during Thursday’s podcast. “I mean it’s implied [that Jim is James Bond].”
The former Bravo star – who shares 5-year-old daughter Aspen and 3-year-old twin sons Hart and Hayes – also offered a coparenting update during the call.
“As for Jim, no, we’re not talking,” she said Celebrity Big Brother alum and notes that she also does not speak to his older children from previous marriages. “We have to use this app, it’s called ‘Our Family Wizard’ so we use it. I mean the court told us about it and I know a lot of people who use it.”
She added: “In this app you can see the time and date stamps and everything and that’s harder to follow up via SMS when something written has to be used in court to make sure both parties are doing their best behaviour.” … My coparent situation is non-existent.”
King and the retired baseball star, who wed in October 2014, have been open about their difficult relationship while raising their three little ones.
“I don’t know what coparenting is,” the model exclusively joked Us weekly in February, with Aspen, Hayes and Hart mostly staying with her. “I struggle with communication [with him]. To become coparent, you have to communicate properly? Yes, so that would be a good start. …Jim hates me. It’s terrible.”
Shortly after Edmonds and the 37-year-old real estate agent got engaged in August 2021, O’Connor was the “closet thing” King amicably had to co-parent.
“That says a lot because I don’t communicate with her either,” said the Intimate Knowledge podcast host. Us back then. “I do not think so [the kids] I like. I don’t think they know it any other way, but I don’t think they like it either. I wish we could talk about our children, but we can’t.”
At the interview on Thursday John Mellencamp‘s daughter tried to get King to spill more tea on her ex-spouse – even asking if she thought Edmonds was a narcissist.
“I mean, I think you could google it [it] very quickly and give it about five minutes [reading about] my relationship and everyone could make that decision for themselves,” she replied subtly.
Edmonds and O’Connor did not immediately respond Us weekly‘s request for comment.
