Lydia McLaughlin

Lydia

Someone had to call Meghan Edmonds out on her hypocrisy and messiness on The Real Housewives Of Orange County. And this week, little rainbows-and-butterflies Lydia McLaughlin stepped right up to the plate! On their hike together, Lydia pointed out that Meghan is no innocent victim when it comes to her drama with Kelly Dodd – but Meghan sure doesn’t see it that way.

Lydia explains why she felt the need to speak up: “I want to start off by saying I really like Meghan. I enjoy her friendship and she is always sweet to me. When we went on the hike, I felt like she was going on and on about Kelly, yet she wasn’t taking any responsibility for her part. Meghan was the one that accused Kelly of an affair FIRST. Then, once they had made up, months later, Meghan goes and tells Vicki [Gunvalson] about the fight. Kelly definitely attacked Meghan, but I didn’t feel comfortable walking with Meghan without saying that she had a part in it as well.”

Vicki Hears a Rumor about Tamra

Someone once told me if you have nothing nice to say; say nothing at all. Well, unfortunately I’m not at liberty to do that – sorry Real Housewives Of Orange County. I have nothing nice to say about any of you, and the thought of holding it all in makes me want to cry like I’m Meghan Edmonds fake-sobbing in a canyon. Maybe Meghan’s tears were instal-dried by the wind or evaporated. Or plastic people make plastic tears which just clog in their tear ducts and until they’re plucked out and thrown away.

Meghan and Vicki Gunvalson aren’t so different, are they? It’s ME ME ME all the TIME TIME TIME. No one understands and blah, blah, blah…

Vicki

It’s been a grueling season of trench warfare on The Real Housewives Of Orange County, and Vicki Gunvalson thinks it’s time everyone just gets over themselves for the sake of moving forward. I couldn’t agree more! Even though Vicki still sees herself as the perpetual victim of everyone’s “false” accusations, she seems willing to lay aside her differences with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador for the good of the order.

Vicki also thinks Kelly Dodd is a loyal friend, even if Kelly is laying down her sword with Shannon. Vicki comments, “I was glad to see Shannon and Kelly attempting on making amends at the Irish drinking night. There has been so much back and forth backstabbing that it’s exhausting to witness and be a part of.”

Shannon wonders about Peggy's cancer

Even though Shannon Beador isn’t holding up that center orange in the Real Housewives of Orange County introduction, she really should be at this point. There is always something going on with Shannon. She is going through it this season – from the weight gain, to the marital strife, to her feuds with the other ladies, she has a lot to address week after week.

Shannon has issues with Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd (still) and she’s even getting into it with Lydia McLaughlin and Peggy Sulahian who she did not know before this season. Sure, she got along with Kelly for one episode, but that was short-lived… as expected.

After weeks of stirring the pot, Lydia McLaughlin has taken a step back during the past couple episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County. Instead, Meghan King Edmonds stepped up to the plate, resurrecting old arguments and relaying information to Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge.

And it all came to head with an argument between Meghan and Kelly Dodd at drag queen bingo. Lydia was visibly uncomfortable at the event and that was before all the arguing went down. It was her first time around drag queens and there is no doubt that she will be asked about her discomfort at the reunion. When the arguing began, Lydia couldn’t take it anymore, even though she has been on this show before. Shouldn’t she know that there is always an argument at every group gathering? Apparently not.

Usually the mention of a Real Housewives vacation incites thoughts of grown women fighting over which room they get to sleep in at a mansion, explosive arguments at group dinners, or even a wild turn up. In all honesty, these trips seem more exhausting than relaxing, so it is no surprise that the Housewives seem to be a million times more relaxed when they take vacations in their real lives away from the cast.

Most of the Real Housewives escaped from real life to enjoy the long Labor Day Weekend with their friends and families.

Kelly feuds With Meghan

On last night’s Real Houseiwves Of Orange County we were all shocked when Kelly Dodd flipped her gender-bending shit and called Meghan Edmonds a bad mom because of her shit-stirring. I mean, talk dirty to me indeed, right?!

This is frustrating because Kelly is in the right about Meghan’s behavior but, as always, Kelly’s delivery and her viciousness get the better of her!

The whole thing started off so promisingly – in a baby store. Amid queries about sleigh cribs or modern cages, Kelly joked with Meghan that perhaps she’s “a lesbo” after a drunken kiss with Shannon Beador. Kelly and Meghan guffaw like Kelly ‘s kiss with Shannon is so trendy and cool, instead of waving from the caboose on Katy Perry’s “I Kissed A Girl” train. More prescient is how quickly Kelly and Shannon moved from mortal enemies to K-I-S-S-ING. First comes hate, then comes love, then comes Meghan in the middle!

The Real Housewives of Orange County - Season 12

The current Real Housewives of Orange County season feels like several different shows rolled into one. There’s a major divide in the cast with a lot of the women refusing to film with each other and when they do they don’t even acknowledge each other if they’re in the same room. Even so, the ladies from the cast all came together to support the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Yes, that’s right. All seven women in the cast actually collaborated on a project together. There’s no word on whose idea it was or how it all came to fruition, but Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Meghan Edmonds, Lydia McLaughlin, and Peggy Sulahian all filmed a video asking their fans and followers to donate to the American Red Cross.
