RHOC's Meghan King Edmond's ex Jim tests positive for coronavirus as daughter waits for her results

REAL Housewives of Orange County's Jim Edmonds revealed that he tested positive for coronavirus and pneumonia, on Wednesday evening.

The ex-husband of Meghan Edmonds said that the tests came back positive but that now he was "completely symptom free."

"So I must have had it for a while," he deduced in an Instagram story.

"Thank god I quarantined myself," he said to the camera.

He revealed that his daughter is being tested but is symptom-free.

The 49-year-old had revealed Saturday that he was in hospital and was being tested for COVID-19.

He captioned a photo wearing a mask in a hospital bed: “Held off as long as I could. I thought I was tough enough to get through.

“This virus is no joke #gethealthy.”

Less than two weeks ago – on March 19 – however, the reality television personality took a trip to Costco where he bragged about dropping over $2k on goods.

He was accused of being a food hoarder during the crisis, when he showcased his freezer and refrigerator brimming over with goods.

The hospitalization comes after ex-wife Meghan, 35, revealed she is having a tough time caring for their three children, Aspen, 3, and twins Hayes and Hart, 21 months, while in coronavirus quarantine.

She posted earlier last week that she is “hanging in there” and does whatever she can to stop her kids from “screaming and crying.”

She wrote on Instagram: “Quarantine day (??) and mama’s still hangin’ in there!

"I get by with a little help from my friends, AKA, a hydrating face mask and a glass of red wine (that I’m hiding in my @disneyjunior cup).”

She continued: “I’ve been getting a lottt of messages from people saying ‘omg I don’t know how you do it’ or ‘you make single mom life look easy!’
“… well… it’s NOT and I don’t want to portray the idea that I’m breezing through this weird and crazy time.”

She added that while she’s “blessed” to share extra time with them, it has been “tough.”

She continued: “There are times where I have to depend on screen time more than I would like to or give the kids snacks that I usually wouldn’t just to get them to stop screaming or crying.”

The former Real Housewives of Orange County star admitted that she is also focusing on herself by “staying on top of her health game” and treating herself to “face masks.”

She ended the post with: “After talking with some of my friends in our #momsquad group, we realized how many people probably think our lives are SO easy right now so we all wanted to come together and share what each of us are doing to get through our days, whether it’s by showing some of our at-home essentials or sharing the best way to #treatyourself at home.”

Fortunately, Jim and Meghan took the advice of their pediatrician who advised them to let the children stay where they were when the lockdown started.

She revealed: “They’re going to stay with me until this passes. Stay safe guys.”
