This is the danger of threesomes: Former MLB star Jim Edmonds recently married for the fourth time. Last weekend the former St. Louis Cardinals outfielder married Kortnie O’Connor, who was once the second woman in a ménage á trois with Edmonds and his now ex-wife “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Meghan O’Toole King.

We’re not against threesomes. In fact a study suggests that couples in committed relationships not only enjoy them but they are healthy for the relationship. Of course this needs to be a mutual decision, there must be the utmost trust, etc.

Not sure what happened with Edmonds and King, but after the threesome with O’Connor he was seemingly hooked. He filed for divorce from King in 2019, and there were rumors that Edmonds cheated on King. He denied it.

“Regrettably, I had a lapse in judgment. I engaged in an inappropriate conversation with this person,” Edmonds said in 2019. “At no time was there any type of relationship or physical contact. Absolutely none. This is someone trying to profit from my name. I am aware she has done this to others in the past.”

The woman he was alleged to have cheated on with King was not O’Connor. So it seems as though this relationship was already on thin ice, threesome or not.

At the time King wasn’t sure whether she believed Edmonds, but the damage had been done.

“Do I believe him? I don’t know,” King said. “Because I don’t trust him anymore. Physical or not, he still had an affair and he admits this to me. I’m a simple girl. I wanted a solid marriage. I’m as loyal as they come and I wanted the vows we made when we exchanged our rings to be acted upon. Now my wedding ring symbolizes fraud. I refuse to be humiliated by this.”

in 2020 in the midst of the pandemic Edmonds went public with O’Connor, according to reports, and now they’re married.

Edmonds has seven kids from his three previous marriages. Four daughters and three sons. No word on if he and O’Connor plan to have a family.

The four-time All-Star made his major league debut with the California Angels (now the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim) in 1993. When he was traded to the Cardinals in 2000 he was already an All-Star and two-time Gold Glove winner in center field.

During his tenure with the Cardinals Edmonds was named an All-Star three times, won six Gold Gloves, and a Silver Slugger. With teammates Scott Rolen and Albert Pujols they were nicknamed MV3 in 2004 for finishing third, fourth and fifth in the National League MVP voting.

In 2006 Edmonds helped lead the Cardinals to a World Series title over the Detroit Tigers and he is in the Cardinals Hall of Fame.

For his career Edmonds totaled 393 home runs (62nd all-time, four seasons in the top-10) and 1,199 RBI. His career OPS (on base plus slugging) is .903 which is 67th all-time. He had three seasons where he finished top-10 in OPS.

His career WAR (wins above replacement) is 60.4, but he had five seasons in the top-10 among position players. He’s not Cooperstown-worthy, but from 1995-98 with the Angels and from 2000-05 with the Cardinals he was among the best players in baseball.
