Lydia McLaughlin

Another Real Housewives of Orange County cast member is out the door! Last month it was Meghan King Edmonds making the announcement and now it’s Lydia McLaughlin quitting the show…again!

Lydia took to her personal blog to share the news with fans of the show. She shared, “RHOC has given me a great platform and I’m grateful for that. However, I feel like I can only handle this show one season at a time. I need a break! There is a lot of good that comes from the show, but also a lot of negativity.”

Peggy Sulahian Hints That She & Lydia McLaughlin Will Be Back Next Season On Real Housewives Of Orange County

It’s no secret that the last Real Housewives of Orange County season was an utter disappointment. Don’t get me wrong, that will not stop me from watching every single episode next season (multiple times), but I at least hope that it gets better from here on out.

The first improvement that I would make (if I ever had any power) is to reboot the cast. Unfortunately it appears like I will not get my wish.

Reality TV Star New Year’s Eve Photos: Lala Kent, NeNe Leakes, Kyle Richards, LeeAnne Locken & More
Your favorite Reality TV stars celebrated 2018 in style and documented their good times on social media, of course. They shared photos with their significant others, children, and friends on New Year’s Eve.

The most shocking post by far was from Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent who finally posted a photo with her longtime boyfriend Randall Emmett, after over a year of speculation about their relationship. Then again, the news became officially official when that video leaked of them making out at a party, his divorce is actually finalized, and there’s really no reason to keep the romance under wraps at this point. It was just pretty surprising considering how private the two have been in the past.

Reality TV Christmas Photos- Melissa Gorga, Brittany Cartwright, LeeAnne Locken, Brody Jenner, & More

All of your favorite reality TV stars went all out celebrating Christmas this year and they posted the photos to prove it.

Sisters-in-law Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga had the best holiday photo which paid homage to their iconic Christmas Eve feud holding up boxes of sprinkle and pignoli cookies. I’m happy that they were able to get over that infamous argument and now I will never let go of this photo.

Instagram Roundup: Bethenny Frankel, LeeAnne Locken, Kris Jenner, Evelyn Lozada, & More

We are in the middle of Hanukkah and just a week away from Christmas. This means that all of our favorite reality stars are attending holiday events, rocking holiday outfits, and spending lots of time with their families. It also means that they’ve shared a lot of photos- just in time for the weekly Instagram Roundup.

Million Dollar Listing star Fredrik Eklund and his husband Derek Kaplan rocked matching Christmas pajamas with their newborn twins. Giuliana Rancic and her son Duke also wore coordinating Christmas PJ’s to get into the holiday spirit. Little Women: LA cast member Jasmine Arteaga Sorge shared a photo with her two sons in front of a Christmas tree. Jenni “JWOWW” Farley got in the Christmas spirit (and away from the cold) with her husband Roger Mathews in Miami. Bethenny Frankel put her own spin on a Santa Claus outfit, plus it is Skinnygirl red so that doesn’t hurt. Kail Lowry shared some adorable snaps from behind-the-scenes at her family’s Christmas card shoot.

Instagram Roundup: Jenelle Evans, Siggy Flicker, Dorit Kemsley, Snooki, & More!

It is the most wonderful time of the year! Not only are there great reality TV shows on right now, but also the winter holidays are coming up! This means that your favorite reality stars are getting festive, picking out and decorating their Christmas trees and attending big parties. They’ve shared some great photos for this week’s Instagram Roundup for their fans and followers to enjoy.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Eileen Davidson and her family chose their Christmas tree. Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino went to the Christmas tree farm with her family. Terry Dubrow shared a photo of his wife Heather Dubrow decorating a massive tree at the infamously mysterious (and expensive) Chateau Dubrow. Ex Real Housewives of New York star Kristen Taekman carried her family’s tree with help from her husband Josh Taekman.

Peggy Sulahian Glad Vicki Gunvalson Made Up With Shannon Beador And Tamra Judge; Accepts Kelly Dodd’s Apology

It’s the end of a disappointing season for The Real Housewives Of Orange County, especially for Peggy Sulahian who, unless Bravo is even more desperate than we imagine, will likely be a one-season wonder. Peggy’s perpetual confusion and resting stank-face did nothing to endear her to viewers. She also didn’t seem to enjoy herself on the show – like, ever. Thus, here are (likely) the last words and testament of the housewife who might have been but never was. She came, she saw, she locked herself in a hotel room! Then she sat at the reunion and mean-mugged Andy Cohen for two hours. Good times!

Peggy doesn’t think Shannon Beador acted with class this season, reflecting, “The funny part is when Shannon says, ‘I’m old school, and I have manners, and those manners flew out the flippin’ door, this year.’ Well, that explains all that I experienced with her. If “manners out the flippin’ door” is her explanation of why she ‘reacted’ that way with everyone, then I must accept it. Looking back and based on what Tamra [Judge] said about Shannon’s denial about her marriage, it could make sense, but the jury’s out.” Peggy says she does have sympathy for Shannon going through a painful divorce, though.

Vicki Gunvalson hugs Shannon Beador & Tamra Judge

Halleluja! The miracle Lydia McLaughlin has been praying for all season finally happened on last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion part 2: Vicki Gunvalson sincerely apologized, and made amends with Tamra Judge. It was a real apology, too, not one fueled by alcohol and ratings. It truly was a reunion for once!

Tamicki love each other – they really love each other! Included in this pile of re-love was Shannon Beador. Who may never really forgive David Vicki, but she’ll never get over him her either.

It was the perfect way to end things. And hopefully they’ll truly move on. After all, just how many seasons can we stretch out the indomitable Brooks Ayers drama (it’s going on 5 seasons now!)? We get it – he’s scum, and Vicki was an innocent virginal angel duped because of her saintly loving heart.
