Meghan Edmonds’ 3-year-old daughter, Aspen, found her mother’s stash of Melatonin and ingested it — causing the child to be knocked out for hours.
The Real Housewives of Orange County shared the info via Instagram Story on Saturday night with her one million followers. The mom of three posted a photo of Aspen knocked out from ingesting the gummy with the caption, “This angel found a melatonin gummy in mama’s purse leftover from our flight. 30 mins later (that was 2 hours ago).
Meghan Edmonds quickly deleted the post as her actions were seemingly perceived as reckless by allowing her children access to mom’s stash.
What Is Melatonin
Melatonin is a hormone found naturally in the body. Melatonin used as medicine is usually made synthetically in a laboratory. It is most commonly available in pill form, but melatonin is also available in forms that can be placed in the cheek or under the tongue. This allows the melatonin to be absorbed directly into the body. Some people take melatonin by mouth to adjust the body’s internal clock. Melatonin is most commonly used for insomnia and improving sleep in different conditions, according to WebMD.
Messy Divorce Equals Stress
As AllAboutTheTEA.com readers know, Meghan’s ex Jim Edmonds filed for divorce in October 2019, after five years of marriage.
The exes currently share 50/50 custody of daughter Aspen, 3, and twin sons Hart and Hayes, 1.
It’s likely Meghan Edmonds is taking various pills to cope with the stress of her messy divorce but concerns of where she’s keeping her meds as her three children have access to her stash.
It’s extremely concerning because if a child accidentally ingests dangerous medications they can suffer serious medical consequences.
As reported, Meghan Edmonds escalated the divorce drama recently by revealing her husband ran off with Kortnie O’Connor — a woman the couple had a threesome with.
She told her co-hosts, Brooke Burke and Lila Darville, “We had just gotten married. I knew Jim had this bad boy past and we were newlyweds and trying to have fun.
“He wanted to have a threesome… We decided to have a threesome – a consensual adult decision – with a friend of mine.
“I felt very comfortable with her. It just felt like, ‘OK, if I’m going to do this, this can be with who, and I’m comfortable with that.’”
However, she also revealed she didn’t feel comfortable telling other people about the experience because she wasn’t proud of it.
When Meghan’s co-host asked if she believes he had an affair with the threesome woman, she responded: “I think they probably had sex more than one time.”
Meghan also revealed that Jim, 49, took his new girlfriend to Cabo and that she used his credit card to purchase items for the trip.
“They are in Cabo right now. This girl who I thought was my friend, who I cast aside my [uncomfortableness] with a threesome, everything that I had in my head about a threesome being weird and gross because I was fun and wanted to do things for my husband. And then this girl betrayed me.” She said.
Jim Edmonds Over the Drama
As the drama escalates between the estranged couple — Jim Edmonds released a statement to US Weekly.
“Jim has no desire to roll in the mud with anyone, nor does he have any interest in playing this out in the media,” a rep for former St. Louis Cardinals player said in a statement to Us Weekly on Thursday, January 23. “Meghan decided to publicly broadcast what was essentially a 30-minute therapy session about her marriage and she continues to tell stories to anyone who will listen and use this as an opportunity to get attention for herself.”
“Publicly discussing private matters is not in the best interest of his children and he is not going to engage on that level.” The statement concluded.
