Real Housewives of Orange County alum Meghan King Edmonds got vulnerable about her difficult holiday season.

As she acknowledged in her post, “Holidays are hard,” but she also had the pressure of COVID-19 and her recent divorce on top of that.

Meghan uploaded a picture of her in a bathtub with smudged makeup holding the book Untamed by Glennon Doyle.

“This is not a sexy post. I won’t bore you with my woe-is-me specifics but thank god for sisters and bubble bath and friends who send you meditations and this book I’m reading,” she started off the caption of her post.

“Despite me putting on makeup and looking cute I lost my brain today,” Meghan went on to confess. “Holidays are hard… so are kids and divorce and Covid times. (PSA: Instagram is smoke and mirrors. If looking at it makes you feel inadequate stop following that person, me included.)”

“Love you all. Now back to my unfiltered tub,” she concluded the vulnerable caption.

Amid their messy divorce, Jim has criticized Meghan for trashing his home and exposing their family to COVID-19.

He also accused her of being “abusive” while praising his new girlfriend, Kortnie O’Connor.

Since splitting with Jim, she began dating Christian Schauf. Unfortunately, after just six months of dating, the couple split leaving Meghan single again.

All in all, fans can agree this year has been a rough one for Meghan.
