Meghan King Edmonds has broken her silence on what appears to be a pretty major cheating scandal.

Earlier this week, All About the Tea broke the news that Jim Edmonds may very well have slept around behind the back of his famous wife.

According to an anonymous source, Edmonds — who played professional baseball for nine seasons — rekindled a relationship with a woman named Jenn last year.

He even did so while the former Real Housewives of Orange County star was pregnant with twins.

This insider goes on to allege the following:

Edmonds initiated contact with Jenn, despite being married to Meghan.

Edmonds would meet Jenn in hotel rooms whenever he traveled as part of his work as a broadcaster.

Edmonds sent Jenn some photos of his penis.

Edmonds sent Jenn a video of himself masturbating on the day Meghan gave birth.

Edmonds made Jenn sign a non-disclosure agreement.

Pretty daming stuff, right?

And Jim has not denied that he knows this alleged mistress, simply saying in a statement yesterday that he never had a physical relationship with her.

“Regrettably, I had a lapse in judgment. I engaged in an inappropriate conversation with this person,” he told Us Weekly, making both an apology and also stating a defense for himself.

He added:

“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…

"Clearly, I made a very poor decision to expose myself and my family to this type of person. For this, I am truly sorry and sought forgiveness from my wife."

What does Meghan have to say in response to this story and to her husband’s side of it?

A lot. A whole lot.

"I found out the same way you guys did, in the tabloids," Meghan, who is Jim’s third wife, wrote on her blog on Friday.

She continued:

"I never left a voicemail for the other woman. I called Jimmy and he confessed to me that he had exchanged lewd photos with this woman over the course of several months and a physical relationship never existed.

"He paid her off to protect me so I’d never find out."

What does she think about Jim’s explanation of events? Well…

"Do I believe him?  I don’t know. Because I don’t trust him anymore. Physical or not, he still had an affair and he admits this to me.

"I refuse to be humiliated by this. Marriage is hard, we’ve been through our ups and downs, I’ve talked about it openly.  A relationship takes two but it doesn’t take two to cheat."

Meghan gave birth to twin boys last year.

She and Jim got married in 2014 and she left the Real Housewives franchise in 2017.

Meghan added that she "did nothing wrong" and didn’t deserve any of this.

"Why did he self-sabotage?" she wrote. "And who sends nudies? Doesn’t everyone know better than this in 2019?"

The former Bravo personality said she loves her husband, yet signaled she is struggling to forgive him.

"I do not fault any other person except my husband."

"It’s not fair," Edmonds added. "I sob so much my face stings from the salt from my tears. I am exhausted. My poor kids aren’t getting their devoted mother. And it’s only been 36 hours…

"I feel sad. Oh, do I feel so sad!

"I feel abandoned. Lonely. My best friend, my number one person has lied to me. Who is he? Do I even know?"

Meghan concluded that while she is a "victim," she is "not defined by this, and needs "space to heal."

She wrote:

"Ultimately, I have hope our marriage can recover."
