When Lydia McLaughlin opted not to return to the Real Housewives of Orange County for season 9, most viewers — me included — thought she just didn't want to deal with all the drama. During her season she had to deal with the whole Vicki/Laurie skiing screaming match, if you do recall. But that actually was not the case at all.
The real reason Lydia opted not to return, was in order to focus on having a third baby. After announcing in April that she was pregnant, Lydia is now ready to reveal the baby's gender. In a new interview with OK! magazine, the entrepreneur also talks about some up-coming projects and if she keeps in touch with any of the other housewives.
Andy Cohen is the ringleader when it comes to all things Housewives, not just the reunions. The former Bravo executive is the man we have to blame for our weekly obsession. It all started with an idea to go behind the gates of Coto de Caza and see how the other half live in the Real Housewives of Orange County.
Now we have multiple versions that we can watch a couple of nights a week, all year long. Thanks Andy!
But when Andy really shines is when he is trying to referee a housewives reunion or interacting with guests on his late night gab fest Watch What Happens Live!.
Andy recently opened up with a few snippets into what it is like to host a Housewives reunion, how he preps and what WWHL guest made him the most nervous.
Never saw this one coming! Vicki Gunvalson has brought a level head to an argument between friends! The Real Housewives of Orange County star has often been full of contradictions. We all remember her screaming at Gretchen Rossi — dressed for the 80s with crimped hair, no less — about Brooks' issues with his outstanding child support being none of her business when Vicki had brought up Slade's child support issues numerous times in the past.
Well, apparently that is the Vicki of past seasons. Because when it came down to choosing sides between Tamra Judge and Heather Dubrow, she brought a level head and logic to the table. She explained her rational decision in her latest Bravo blog.
During the show, we saw a shattered Shannon, confide in Tamra Judge about the problems in her marriage and the fact that her husband had even gone so far as to send her an email suggesting that he move out of their family home for a bit.
In her latest Bravo blog, Shannon opens up about her realization that she came to about her marriage and the consequences of confiding in a housewife.
Last night on Real Housewives of Orange County the dramas were as real as the friendships were fake. And Shannon Beador is about to learn a nasty lesson in Housewives betrayal – right on top of learning one about heartbreak. Why is this exactly the plot of a Lifetime Movie? Oh goody!
So, let's just break this down; either Tamra Barney's new doctor is injecting her with crazy-hormones (and by that I mean more crazy than usual hormones) or girlfriend is having a nervous breakdown. Of course, that still doesn't excuse her rancid personality and wretched two-faced-ness. Do personalities spoil like milk?
Tamra is still mad at Heather Dubrow for having a life beyond her or RHOC – and for daring to promote another gym on TV besides CUT Fitness. I mean that horrible hoochie-hussy – she is like single-handedly destroying Tamra's business. As if Tamra's behavior on RHOC isn't at allllll responsible for destroying her reputation.
