5. RHOC Cast Member Heather Dubrow Is Friends With Allison AND Jim’s Current Wife Meghan
RHOC cast-mate Heather Dubrow, who is good friends with Meghan King Edmonds, was friends with Allison prior to Jim’s meeting Meghan. While some of the other cast members feel it’s “girl code” to not befriend the new wife, but Heather states that there’s no rule book when people get divorced. It’s a sticky situation.
Some speculate that Jim’s relationship with Meghan overlapped with his marriage to Allison. Allison and Jim were reportedly married for 6 years, which means they divorced in 2014. Jim and Meghan got married this year, but Meghan tells the RHOC women she’s been in Jim’s life for two years. What do you think?
