Lydia McLaughlin Quits RHOC


Tamra Barney, Vicki Gunvalson and Heather Dubrow have headed to Hawaii to continue filming season 8 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Lydia McLaughlin has confirmed she has quit the show. “I compare it to breaking up with a boyfriend you know you’re not going to end up with, it’s hard, but overall you know you’re doing the right thing,” Lydia told US Weekly. “I never wanted to make a career out of being a Housewife. That’s never really been a dream of mine.”

“I definitely have plans to continue to sparkle fairy dust and be a light! I want to develop our own reality show about our magazine and all the glitz and glamour involved with publishing it,” Lydia said of her future plans. “I want to build my brand outside of the Housewives, I’ve always been really honest with the producers about that. I knew that while I was filming it that I probably wasn’t going to be doing it again.”

Are you sad to see Lydia go?
