Lydia McLaughlin On Slade’s ‘Eat A Cheeseburger’ Comment!

RHOC

Lydia McLaughlin is taking to her Bravo Blog to reveal she doesn’t think she overreacted about Slade’s comments about her weight. Lydia says Slade has a track record of making fun of the other women’s appearances, and she doesn’t think that is the way a man should behave.

Lydia writes, “Slade’s comment and the whole situation upset and frustrated me on many different levels, which is why I think I got more and more upset. First of all, I am the hostess of the party. Secondly, I don’t know him that well. So the fact that he whispered what I perceived to be an insult about me was not cool. It was also inappropriate that he didn’t say “I’m sorry. Let’s move on,” but instead continued to explain all the reasons why he felt his comment was OK. Don’t forget that we had just gotten back from Mexico where Gretchen was whispering sweet nothings about me in the limo. I’m more of a direct person and I don’t understand whispering about someone when they are right there. If he would of just taken ownership for his comment, apologized if it upset me, we could have moved on. . .but that didn’t happen.

It’s not what Slade said that upset me so much. It is his history of putting down other women’s appearances publicly. Last year he called Tamra too fat and he’s made fun of Vicki’s nose. Now he’s going after me at my own party!?! Who died and made him the appearance police? It’s just not OK, which is why I called him out on it. And, for Gretchen to say I’m making a big deal out of nothing just showed me how insensitive she is. Maybe love is blind, but I can’t image my husband Doug ever acting like that. Men should be lifting woman up — not critiquing our appearance.”

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.
