The Real Reason Meghan Edmonds’ Husband Jim Is So Grouchy On ‘Real Housewives of Orange County?’
On The Real Housewives of Orange County, Meghan King Edmonds often complains about the absence of her husband, Jim Edmonds.

According to the stay-at-home stepmom, 30, the grouchy baseball legend always ditches their California home to deal with unnamed business in his adopted hometown of St. Louis.

And now, can exclusively reveal the matter that likely took Edmonds, 45, away from home for so many months: The St. Louis Cardinals alum and restaurateur was dealing with a major lawsuit that could have cost him his business and his fortune!

According to U.S. district court documents obtained by Radar, restaurateur Jeff Ruby, owner of Cincinnatti steakhouse The Precinct, sued Edmonds and his company, MWS LLC, for trademark infringement after the baseball great opened a new eatery with the same name.

Edmonds, the owner of St. Louis bar and grill The Precinct, “has embarked in a deliberate and willful campaign to circumvent and misappropriate Plaintiff’s exclusive rights in the Precinct Mark and the goodwill associated herewith,” Ruby argued in the November 2013 papers.

Before Edmonds opened his restaurant’s doors in October 2013, Ruby claimed he dined at the Cincinnati Precinct “several times” while playing for the Cincinnati Reds in 2010.
