Lydia, who was way too down to earth and classy for reality TV via Bravo, may have parted ways with the Real Housewives of Orange County, but we didn’t part ways with Lydia’s social media accounts. She is forever sharing pictures of her beautiful family – husband Doug McLaughlin, sons Stirling, Maverick, and baby Roman, and mom Judy Stirling – and we can’t get enough. Much to our delight, Lydia shared a bunch of photos of her family enjoying Christmas.
These days, the Teen Mom 2 star’s social media accounts are packed full of pictures of fun times with her family. I certainly don’t think her life is drama free – because, Jenelle – but these pics are a far cry from the looking like homeless people living in our car selfies Jenelle used to post when she was with Useless Thing 1, Kieffer Delp, and Useless Thing 2, Courtland Rogers. See pictures of Jenelle, Barbara Evans, Jace, Nathan Griffith, Kaiser, and Nathan’s little girl Emery celebrating Christmas below.
Mama Drama: “It saddens me to see Kandi still going through such heartache with her mother, and blended and extended family,” said Kenya. “This should be the happiest time of her life, but it has been overshadowed by the constant infighting. I hope for peace for Kandi and that she can focus on extending her family with a new little one soon. She deserves it.” Kandi’s problem is Kandi.
On Real Housewives of Atlanta this week, Phaedra Parks joined her friends and co-stars for Demetria McKinney‘s video release party. Phaedra said she needed a girls night out away from her prison bound huzzzband, Apollo Nida, and all that’s going on at home. Big. Mistake. Because where there’s a RHOA camera, there’s Apollo boohooing about how everyone has wronged him. Ugh. How soon until this con artist is off my TV?!?
Phaedra shared her thoughts on the party with Bravo in her blog.
When asked her first impressions of Demetria and Claudia Jordan, Phaedra said, “When I attended Demetria’s event, my focus was an evening of escape from my current reality. I didn’t attend with the idea of engaging in any captivating conversations. I had very limited interaction with Demetria and Claudia, so my frist impression was merely that both women were attempting to embark on new career and relationship frontiers.”
Andy surmised that it must be hard for Phaedra to watch this season of RHOA considering all she has gone through – and is still going through – with Apollo. “Definitely. Any time you are dealing with something very personal in the media and on TV it’s very difficult,” said Phaedra. “It’s quite uncomfortable.”
