Alexis Bellino and Lydia McLaughlin Reunite!


The former Real Housewives of Orange County stars Alexis Bellino and Lydia McLaughlin reunited this past weekend in honor of celebrating Lydia’s book debut, Beyond Orange County: A Housewives Guide to Faith & Happiness.

The mother of three’s book was released last week, and she took to Instagram to share the exciting news. “The day is finally here! My book #BeyondOrangeCounty is released! Doesn’t everyone start the day bathing in their new book? #OrderYourCopyToday.”


At her launch party she got to celebrate with friends and family, including former co-star Alexis Bellino! McLaughin’s brother Tweeted the headlining photo with a caption “#BeyondOrangeCounty book launch party with @AlexisBellino & my sister (and published author!) @OCLydia.”

The former OC Housewife’s book talks more about religion than her life on a reality show, and why she only did one season. “As I prayed about the decision, I didn’t feel in my heart of hearts that I was called [by God] to do another season on the show. My true motivation for doing the show again was based more on the worldly benefits..I had gotten a taste of fame and recognition, and it was fun..The dresses and makeup and all things girlie were tempting.”

Congrats to Lydia on her new book and make sure to buy a copy in stores today!
