Lydia and her husband Doug confirmed the baby news. "Lydia is hoping for a girl! Both Lydia and Doug are so excited to be adding to their beautiful family." Lydia is expecting baby #3 in November. Their new baby will join big brothers, Stirling, 5, and Maverick, 3.
Lydia joined RHOC for season 8, but opted not to join the crew for another go – one was apparently plenty for her!
You can see Lydia's adorable baby bump in new photos she shared with Us Magazine.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK THIS IS WHY LYDIA DECIDED AGAINST ANOTHER SEASON OF OC?
Part of last season's Real Housewives of Orange County storyline for Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson revolved around their wine club "Wines by Wives". Bravo is playing a marathon of reruns today and it must have sparked some conversation about the company because Vicki shared this afternoon that she's no longer a part of it. And was shocked to find her photos on the site.
If you'll recall, Vicki and Tamraargued last season about who wasn't pulling their weight with the company (which launched in May 2012). Vicki posted to Facebook this afternoon, "Wines by Wives customers: Some time ago Vicki ended her affiliation with WbW — and was surprised her image/presence was still on their site. Vicki was shocked/dismayed to hear followers were having trouble with their orders. Vicki reached out directly to the owner of WbW and asked for immediate resolution. Thanks to all of you who brought this to our attention. -The Vicki Team-"
If you go to the WbW site, they have several photos of Vicki, but they have removed her from the "who do you want to drink with" page. Still featured? Kathy Wakile, Tamra Barney, Adriana de Moura and others.
NeNe Leakes turned the tables on Andy Cohen in a special segment of Watch What Happens Live. Nene got Andy to confess who has the say in casting the Real Housewives, whether he only hires Housewives with money and are heading for bankruptcy and so much more. Andy even slams the other "wives" style copycat ripoff shows.
Andy reveals that his favorite Real Housewives franchise is "the one that I'm watching; the one I'm screening. I go all over the map. Atlanta makes me laugh the hardest. It's consistently the funniest, although new York makes me [laugh] too."
The most fashionable franchise is Beverly Hills. "I think Beverly Hills, New York and Atlanta have the most fashion." What do you like about BH? "I like seeing their houses. The weather is always great and they're always outside. And it's all roses and hair and.."
NeNe asks, do you have a hand in hiring and firing housewives? "I do". NeNe squawks, "So if anything ever happens to me, I need to come for you? What! are you kidding me?" Andy asks if she seriously knew that or not and she swears she had NO idea.

See what Gretchen Rossi, Kim Kardashian, Joanna Krupa and other reality stars are to this week in our photo gallery.
The photo above (and one in the gallery) of Kim Zolciak is from February, but we stumbled on it this week and they were too fun not to share. All that's missing is a lit ciggy hanging from her mouth and this photo would be Peg Bundy perfection.
Also spotted: Kim Kardashian attended a political event with sister Kourtney. Kendra spent some time with her family (on the red carpet) and Juan Pablo Galavis enjoyed some time with Nikki Ferrell. And Bethenny Frankel ran errands in NYC.
WE tv announced today that it has renewed both Kendra On Top and Tamar & Vince for a third season!
Tamar Braxton is going to be one busy woman! Not only does she have her new talk show debuting this fall "The Real", filming Braxton Family Values and taking care of baby Logan and her singing career, she's returning for season 3 of Tamar & Vince! The show will premiere this fall.
From the press release: “Tamar & Vince” spotlights the youngest Braxton sister, Tamar, and her husband/manager, Vince. During the second season, viewers followed Tamar’s burgeoning solo career, the release of her album “Love and War” and the birth of her first child – Logan Vincent Herbert."
The reality stars were seen filming segments in Central Park for their latest tasks, which indicates they're still on the show – at least as of yesterday. Despite what looks like drizzly, miserable weather, Kenya looks good and Brandi, too. Maybe it's the more "natural look" of not having perfect hair due to the dizzle?
I can't say enough times how excited I am to watch Kenya, Kate and Brandi on the show. In the past I've only watched little bits – like when Teresa Giudice was competing, but this season I'll be tuning in – at least until these three are fired. We're planning to cover this hot mess, so stay tuned! Check out the pictures from yesterday's task below.
Jacqueline was reportedly done and over the craziness of the show after five long drama-filled seasons, but it looks like that isn't so! We heard reports of film crews at her home, but many assumed she was possibly filming bits for Caroline's spinoff show or another project of her own. But Ashlee seems to confirm that Jacs will be on the show.
