Former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Meghan King got candid on Instagram this week as she shared that she’s been “in a funk” recently.
On November 29, she posted a photo of herself sitting in a car and smiling but elaborated on her mood in the caption. “I’ve been in a funk lately,” she wrote. “It’s a weird funk, I’m not depressed or worried or anything, I’m in a healthy romantic relationship, I’m loving being a mom more than ever, and things with work seem to be falling into place.”
She said her funk is about her “shifting role” and whether she wants to continue living such a public life. “I’ve been wondering if this is the route I want for my children,” she shared. “Social media can be so insidious and I find myself feeling inadequate when I look at it too long.”
King recalled a recent conversation with her mother, in which she asked the former Bravo star if she wanted to “keepsake box” for her children. She said she replied to her mother, “Damnit I don’t have keepsakes like good Moms bc I’m so distracted trying to run everything alone!” King then wondered why she’d replied in such a “salty and self-righteous” way and said she needed to work on not feeling defensive a lot of the time. “I don’t have answers yet, the funk continues,” she concluded.
