Meghan Edmonds

Lydia McLaughlin

Out of all of the alums to ask back to Real Housewives of Orange County, Lydia McLaughlin was the most random choice. She was only on for one season, had zero story line, and did not have any genuine friendships with anyone else in the cast. Sure, she has great hair and a hilarious mom, but what is Lydia really bringing to the table other than attributes already exemplified by other cast members? Seriously though, let me know.

Tamra Judge is now all about her newfound Christianity, Meghan Edmonds is the nice one caught in the middle of the cliques, and now we have Lydia to contribute things that we already have? That makes no sense. Yes, Lydia is obviously a sweet person, but she just isn’t the best person for this show full of women who love arguing and gossiping.

Last night was a big night for Bravo viewers. Real Housewives of Orange County returned for its twelfth season and part one of the Southern Charm reunion aired. That’s why it made so much sense for Tamra Judge and Shep Rose to stop by the Watch What Happens Live clubhouse to talk with Andy Cohen.

Of course that included Tamra throwing shade at Vicki Gunvalson and Shep showcasing his extensive vocabulary.

Tonight Real Housewives Of Orange County returns for it’s 12th season! Yes, that means we’ve thus-far survived 11 seasons of Vicki Gunvalson and her ever-shifting truth.

So, before we get into the all-new drama, let’s take a trip down memory lane to relive all the craziness from season 11. Maybe a tequila will help refresh things?! And season 11 was full of crashes and burns (literally), boozes and burns (literally), and plenty of rides from hell.

The season opened with Vicki all by herself, and seeking absolution after lying – in some capacity – about what she knew about Brooks Ayers‘ phony cancer scheme. Obviously no one wants to forgive Vicki because it doesn’t seem possible that she totally didn’t realize he was faking a terminal illness for money and attention. 

Reality TV Stars Celebrate July 4th

Our favorite reality TV stars, like Jenni Pulos, Ramona Singer, and Chelsea Houska, took to social media to share how they celebrated July 4th.

Above: former The Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino shared, “Feeling very patriotic today. I love America. I love our freedom. I love our military who protect us every day. I love red, white, and blue! (I I luv this $60 swimsuit!) Happy 4th everyone! Be safe! #godblessAmerica #happy4thofjuly”

The Real Housewives Of Orange County is returning to our TV screens on July 10th, and Tamra Judge says it’s a very different season than we’ve ever witnessed before. Unsurprisingly, the drama between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra continues, with Tamra indicating that there’s not a lot of resolution in sight. But boomerang cast member Lydia McLaughlin lands back on the scene to try to broker peace among the fractured group (HA! She’ll need extra glitter for that trick.)

In a recent interview, Tamra admits that she’s still not on good terms with Vicki and Kelly Dodd, and she didn’t really get to know newcomer Peggy Sulahian as well as she could have. She shares that “it’s such a different season this year. The cast was a little bit split almost three quarters of the way through filming. I don’t know what Kelly and Vicki did most of the time because I was filming much more with Meghan [Edmonds] and Shannon [Beador]. Peggy is the new girl and I didn’t film with her all that much either.”

Kenya Moore, Ashley Darby, and Teresa Giudice

A new roundup of reality TV stars social media pics to kick off your weekend!

Teresa captioned the photo: “Had a great time with these two ladies tonight.”

cast orange county season 12

Woo Hoo! Real Housewives Of Orange County is ba-ack. Which means a whole new season of dismantling what Vicki Gunvalson did? Or didn’t do? Or kinda, maybe, sorta didn’t know she was doing? Anyway – you know you’re excited!

The Real Housewives of Orange County season 12 will continue the trials and tribulations of Bravo’s original Housewives. Old faces are returning in the form of Lydia McLaughlin, pre-plastic surgery Vicki, and Gretchen Rossi (Yes! I know). Some classic Housewives left us when Heather Dubrow decided she’d finally had enough of looking bad by association – at least that’s what she believes made her look bad! #Ireland

Meghan-Edmonds-Hawaii-Trip

When Meghan Edmonds posted on Instagram about walking in Kauai fashion week, I expected a punch of follow-up photos of her getting all glammed up and strutting down the runway. Instead, Meghan explored Hawaii while she was there and had a very active trip.

From rappelling down a waterfall, to ziplining upside down, to hiking on the beach, Meghan kept busy in between her professional obligations. In true Housewife fashion, she documented the entire trip and shared it on social media.
