Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lydia McLaughlin is now an author. In her upcoming book, Beyond Orange County: A Housewives Guide To Faith & Happiness, McLaughlin talks about her time on Housewives, including her feud with Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley.
â€œDuring filming I mostly argued with Gretchen and Slade,â€ Lydia writes. â€œBut Doug and I have gone on double dates with them once we stopped filming, and consider them true friends!â€
â€œI am thankful for the friendships with Alexis, Jim, Gretchen, and Slade that continue to grow,â€ McLaughlin says in the book, obtained early by RadarOnline.
McLaughlin left the show after just one season because she wanted to have her third child off-camera. She gave birth to Roman Scott on November 4th, 2014.
Lydia’s book will be in stores on April 14th, 2015.
