Lydia McLaughlin Reveals Who She’s Closest To On RHOC


In a new interview with TooFab Lydia McLaughlin is revealing which of her Real Housewives of Orange County cast mates she remained close friends with. “It’s ironic, I’m the closest with Alexis and Gretchen,” Lydia admits. “[I think] if I go back again, and all of the rumors are true, I’m out of luck. I have the most in common with them.” Lydia says she’s still friendly with Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney too. “But I still talk to Vicki, and Tamra [Barney] and I text occasionally,” she added.

What’s surprising is that Lydia didn’t mention Heather Dubrow’s name, which makes us wonder if they are on the outs after referring to Heather as “Princess” at the reunion when the topic of Lydia’s magazine cover came up. But it’s also interesting that Lydia and Gretchen are now good friends after butting heads while filming the show.

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.
