Exclusive: Lydia McLaughlin Shocked Alexis Bellino Called Her A “Christian On Steroids”


Real Housewife of Orange County, Lydia McLaughlin, revealed she was shocked and confused when she heard her friend and fellow Christian, Alexis Bellino, call her a “Christian on steroids,” on a recent episode of the show. Lydia exclusively explained in a conference call Monday she didn’t understand the comment and she wasn’t happy about it!

Lydia also explains she was shocked when Alexis Bellino referred to her as a ‘Christian on steroids.’ “I was surprised to see Alexis call me a devout Christian on steroids. And yes I didn’t know – I don’t really even know what that means. I believe in Jesus and I – but you’re going to get to see also I have a hippie mom. And I’ve been to an (India) and an (ostrom),” she said.

“So I think when people hear the word Christian they get a little nervous. And I’m very open-minded. And I was a religion minor in school. So I know a lot about all the different kinds of religions. And I’m very like kind of free-spirited, Bohemia type of chick. So being called that was definitely like whoa oh no. Like my palms started like to sweat a little bit,” she admitted.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
