Lydia McLaughlin Returning To Season 12 Of RHOC

Multiple sources are confirming that Lydia McLaughlin will return to season twelve of The Real Housewives of Orange County! As you may remember, Lydia quit the show after season eight.

“She seems really excited,” an insider tells US Weekly.

At the time, Lydia said of her reason for leaving the show, “It’s bittersweet. 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.”

In November 2014, Lydia and her husband Doug welcomed their third child, son Roman. They also renewed their wedding vows in April 2016 after 10 years of marriage.

RHOC is getting closer to finalizing the cast for the new season. What do you think about Lydia’s return?

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.
