Nearly two decades after graduating from the University of Mississippi, The Real Housewives of Orange County alum has found herself back inside the classroom. And, no, she hasn’t taken on a teaching job; she returned as a student. The St. Louis native shared the news in a November 8 Instagram post that included several photos of her study sessions.

“It’s been 17 years since I was in a classroom at Ole Miss swearing I’d never go back to school yet here I am studying for my Real Estate license in Missouri…” she wrote. “Yep I said it now that means I have to pass. 11.5 study hours clocked yesterday with my only break being to eat and put my kids to bed — this ish isn’t for the faint of heart!”

Meghan went on to say that the process has kept her quite busy, so much so that she no longer has time for everyday tasks, like applying makeup.

“My eyes are going to love me,” she continued. “The library has made a resurgence from my high school and college study days and has earned the spot of most frequented location in my phone, and no time for trivial items like posting on Instagram (ya right) – I have slides to learn (aka memorize)! Please gimme all the advice… and all the referrals! Day 3 complete.”

Meghan King's Career and Family Life

After earning her bachelor’s degree in marketing, Meghan worked as a sales representative for a pathology software firm and went on to become the director of sales for Sweat Cosmetics. In 2014, Meghan tied the knot with MLB player Jim Edmonds, and made her RHOC debut the following year. The mother of three exited the series in 2017 and divorced Jim about two years later. 

In October 2021, Meghan married Cuffe Biden Owens, the nephew of President Joe Biden. The former couple split just two months later, and their marriage was annulled the following year.

Meghan provided another life update during her July appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, where she shed more light on her brief marriage and career in sales. The latter topic was brought up during a Clubhouse game when Meghan revealed she wanted to sell a private plane to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Adrienne Maloof, which prompted Andy to ask, “Do you sell planes?” 

Meghan didn’t provide details on her job, and simply replied: “I do, yes.”
