‘Real Housewife’ Meghan King Edmonds, husband Jim Edmonds buy a home in Newport Beach

Orange County’s newest housewife has found herself a home in Newport Beach.

Meghan King Edmonds, the latest addition to the cast of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” and her husband, retired Major League Baseball player Jim Edmonds, have bought a six-bedroom home in the Newport Heights community for about $2.8 million.

The Tuscan-inspired home, built in 2010, spans two stories with marble floors, wrought-iron finishes, a two-story entry and a kitchen with two islands. Also within the 5,077 square feet of space are formal living and dining rooms, a great room and a master suite with a fireplace, his and hers closets and a large soaking tub.

French doors open to a side courtyard and paved patio. A three-car garage sits off the rear of the home.

Wayne Pridgen of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Realty, was the listing agent. Jacqueline Thompson of Surterre Properties represented the couple. The exact sale price was $2,787,500.


King Edmonds joined holdovers Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Heather Dubrow and Shannon Beador on “The Real Housewives of Orange County” this year. The show is in its 10th season.

Edmonds, a four-time All-Star, played 17 seasons in the majors for the Angels and Cardinals, among others, finishing his career with eight Gold Glove awards and one World Series title. The 45-year-old works as an analyst for Fox Sports Midwest.

Earlier this year, the former ballplayer sold his longtime home in Irvine’s Shady Canyon for $6.775 million. The three-story home is highlighted by a game room, a movie theater, six bedrooms and seven bathrooms in 10,000 square feet of living space.

He also has a three-bedroom home at The Hideaway in La Quinta on the market for $1.499 million.
