Former “Real Housewives of Orange County” Cast Member Meghan O’Toole King Is Marrying Joe Biden’s Nephew
If you’re a Real Housewives fan, you know Meghan O’Toole King (formerly known as Meghan King Edmonds), aka the legendary Detective MKE. Meghan was the brave O.C. Housewife who relentlessly investigated Vicki Gunvalson’s boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, eventually proving that he faked cancer. Meghan dug up Brooks’ medical records, phoned his exes, interviewed his doctors, and basically did so much research she’s only two credits shy of becoming a real-life cancer doctor. For that heroic nosiness, Meghan will always have a special place in my heart. Now, a couple years ago 37-year-old Meghan went through a messy divorce with 51-year-old retired baseball player/cheater, Jim Edmonds. But she’s since moved on, and today she is marrying Husband #3 (#1 was her college sweetheart), some long-haired hipster-looking dude named Cuffe Owens. Who also happens to be… President Joe Biden’s nephew? *confused Tim Allen grunt*
Cuffe Owens is a 42-year-old attorney based in Los Angeles. His mother is Valerie Owens, Joe’s sister. He and Meghan’s “small family wedding” will take place at Valerie’s home and the President will be in attendance.
NBC White House correspondent Kelly O’Donnell reported the news on Twitter:
BIDEN FAMILY WEDDING TODAY: The President and the First Lady are attending a small, family wedding at the home of Valerie and Jack Owens. Their nephew, Cuffe Owens, is marrying Meghan O’Toole King.

Meghan and Cuffe have only been Instagram-official for a month, and no word on when they began seeing each other. Here’s Meghan’s “Look, We’re A Couple!” post:
Meghan shares three children with second husband Jim Edmonds: 3-year-old twins Hayes and Hart, and 4-year-old daughter Aspen. The couple’s tumultuous divorce was finalized in May, and sources say the pair only communicates to raise their kids. In July Jim got engaged to Kortnie O’Connor (yep, she spells it Kortnie), and right after Meghan’s wedding news broke, his daughter from his first marriage, 23-year-old Hayley, posted a picture of her and Jim wearing “Anti-Biden Social Club” shirts (oooo, burrrrn!):
Meanwhile Jim Edmonds and his daughter Hayley are proud members of the “Anti Biden Social Club.” Guess they won’t be at the wedding!!

I’m pretty sure this is the first time a Real Housewife has married into a U.S. President’s family. There were rumors that Sonja Morgan dated Trump in the eighties, but she’s denied them (although who would ever admit it if it were true?). So cheers to Meghan for making American herstory! And a reminder it’s not just a win for her; the U.S. government just snagged themselves a top-tier investigator. Mark my words, if the CIA hires Detective Meghan, she’ll figure out who killed JFK in less than one week.
UPDATE: Brides.com just published a profile on the 50-person wedding, and Meghan revealed she and Cuffe met on a dating app and got serious fast. Here are some pics:
