The real deal! Real Housewives of Orange County alum Jim Edmonds and his new girlfriend, Kortnie O’Connor, were “moving really fast” for months, and now an insider exclusively tells In Touch that includes moving in together. A source close to the couple reveals they’re “together 24/7” and “in love.”
“Jim and Kortnie are serious,” they say. “She’s living with him in St. Louis, [Missouri].” Though Jim has been “obsessed” with his new girlfriend since pretty much day one, even he’s blown away by the fact that their relationship “all seems to be working out just fine.”
The source continues, “To be honest, Jim wasn’t sure it was going to work out this well, but he and Kortnie are a good match. They have a lot in common, they laugh, they work out together and she gets along with his older kids. Right now, everything seems to be perfect.”
Things even appear to be going well with ex Meghan King, who split from Jim, 49, in October 2019. After the former baseball player and Kortnie, 35, were initially linked in January, the Real Housewives blonde threw shade at her ex-husband for moving on so quickly — especially considering his new lady is someone they had a threesome with while they were together.
“Why does Jim have to go back to this low-hanging fruit? Can’t she go find somebody else? And just disrespectful on his part,” she said on her “Intimate Knowledge” podcast at the time. “It’s just so hurtful. I never told anyone that I had a threesome because it just felt just like something I wasn’t proud of, and now this is the woman [he] is with and spending money on her when he can’t even come to give me the money that I need?”
By March, however, Meghan, 35, had come around. Though a second source told In Touch the women weren’t “going to be lunching” together due to their past, the RHOC alum had called a tentative truce. “If it becomes more serious, then [Meghan will] figure out a plan. … Meghan isn’t trying to plan Jim’s future, but he and Kortnie do seem to be getting on well,” they said. “Right now, Meghan doesn’t want any women influencing her and Jim’s kids but her.”
