Out of all the former Real Housewives of Orange County cast members, I never ever expected Lydia McLaughlin to make a return, but it is being reported that she is. She is one of the few former Housewives that hasn’t been fame whoring to stay relevant so I just never thought she would to return. Plus, she actually quit (instead of being fired) because it wasn’t the right fit for her. So it’s pretty shocking that she’s about to come back.
No offense to everyone else in the cast, but Lydia just always seemed like she was way too good of a person to be on this show. There is not a reason in the world to dislike Lydia, but I just felt like she was too nice to be on RHOC. She never really got into it with the other women and the only remotely scandalous thing about her was her pot-loving mom- whom we all loved.
I am aware that Vicki Gunvalson is great at selling insurance, but none of her attempts at “business ventures” ever seem to work out. I have no idea why she doesn’t stick to what she knows instead of thinking that she isn’t too polarizing to sell anything other than insurance. After the failed ventures that include diamonds, a wine venture, bacon flavored vodka brand and a suspicious cancer charity, Vicki announced that she is going to launch her own app.
Why? Can’t she just continue arguing with people on Real Housewives of Orange County and providing people with insurance with the occasional sponsored Instagram post in between? Apparently not. Vicki thinks that people want to turn to her for life advice on a daily basis.
Citing reasons that include a desire to spend more time with her family and a wish to pursue other career ventures, Heather says she reached a “tipping point” with RHOC, and the time was right to go. In an official statement, Heather wrote “These past five years have been an incredible journey and I’m so proud to have been a part of such an iconic piece of pop culture … However, at this point in my life, I have decided to go in another direction and do what’s best for my family and career.”
Multiple sources confirm Meghan will not return next season, although it’s not clear if she was fired, quit, or it was a mutual decision. After filming for season 11 wrapped, Meghan and Jim pretty much moved back to St. Louis, because Meghan wanted to be near family to raise her daughter Aspen.
While most of us have been stuck inside thanks to Winter weather, the Real Housewives have ditched that cold and snowy life to relax (and probably turn up) on vacation in some warmer climates. Luckily for them, some of the Real Housewives have escaped the drama-filled cast trips.
Unfortunately for me (as a super fan), the ladies are all taking individual trips. The queen of the vacation turn up Vicki Gunvalson has been partying it up in Puerto Vallarta with her boo Steve Lodge. Ramona Singer is enjoying herself in South Beach, which made me flash back to Ramona bragging, “I go to Miami like I brush my teeth. Miami is not really a special place.” And then there is my favorite self-proclaimed jet setter, Sonja Morgan, who is sharing pictures and videos of her trip to St. Maarten.
Everyone who watches Real Housewives of Orange County knows how much Vicki Gunvalson loves to whoop it up. And Vicki notoriously likes to party it up the most when she is in Mexico, so it’s not surprising the OG of the OC is down in Puerto Vallarta with her boyfriend Steve Lodge and friends.
I am getting jealous with every photo Vicki posts on Instagram while I am stuck freezing my butt off in the winter climate. Nevertheless, I don’t have a Real Housewives-size budget, so I am just going to have to settle for the vicarious enjoyment that comes with following Vicki on Instagram.
Meghan dishes on Vicki – and much, much more – in a recent interview on The Domenick Nati Show. But first, Meghan has some ideas about adding fresh blood to the RHOC cast. Friends with Audrina Patridge from The Hills, Meghan says that Audrina would make a great Real Housewife. “I’d love it! She has a baby; she’s my age. Right there, that’s a lot in common. She breastfed, I breastfed.” Mmmkay. Twinsies, then!
