She opened up about the divorce in a new Instagram post, which was accompanied by a black-and-white photo of herself on the cover of Pump Lifestyle magazine.

The RHOC alum wrote: “To see my face and my name (Meghan KING) on the cover is immensely flattering and truthfully, kinda shocking.

Only a year ago I was desperately seeking brain injury therapies for my son, Hart, and traveling wherever I needed to help him, and I was devastated at the state of my marriage as it crumbled before my eyes: in essence I was depleted, desperate, depressed, alone, and dejected.”

Meghan continued: “In that time I put on my big-girl panties and got to work: I became a better mother, I threw myself into counseling, prayer, and meditation, I reorganized my blog and social media, and I started a podcast. I dropped my married name, became a better writer, bought a car, and cried a lot.

“I forgave myself, forgave others, and I grew. I did it for myself. And I learned how to love the shit out of myself.”

The Bravo star then reflected on the importance of her covering the magazine, writing: “And to be on the cover – not as a model, not with my former name – and to have authored the cover story blows me away.

“I never would’ve guessed this is where I’d be if you asked me one year ago. But I f***ing did it. It was my turn to write the ending.”

The pair are now in a bitter divorce battle, with Jim recently claiming that the RHOC bosses told him upfront that he would be “made to look bad if Meghan didn’t perform” during their time on the show.

Meghan and Jim share three kids: 3-year-old Aspen and 2-year-old twins Hart and Hayes.

She has moved on with new boyfriend Christian Schauf, while Jim is now dating Kortnie O’Connor.

He met his new love when he and Meghan had a threesome while married.

Back in late July, Jim slammed his ex-wife in a series of Instagram Stories.
Jim wrote: “A narcissist will hurt you and hurt you, again and again, waiting for the moment you that you retaliate. Just they can plat the victim.”
