Lydia McLaughlin Reveals Why She Wants Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge to Make Amends

Lydia McLaughlin is reacting to the yacht party she threw on this week’s RHOC. In her blog, Lydia also says she was happy she had a positive moment with Meghan King Edmonds.

“If you know me, I love to throw a party! I wanted to throw Doug a party the night before his vasectomy to keep our minds occupied. We needed a distraction and a yacht party sounded like the perfect distraction. Doug’s party was a lot of fun. It was nice just being with all the woman and not have anyone fight! I was sad Vicki was sick and had to miss the evening.

I found it awkward that none of the ladies took responsibility for the Farmhouse dinner. My feelings were hurt, but I just wanted to have a drama free night so I dropped it. I was grateful I had a heart to heart moment with Meghan before everyone showed up and felt like she was a good friend in hearing my feelings and acknowledging them. I left the night telling Doug how much I appreciated her and her friendship.

Doug’s vasectomy was stressful in the moment but his recovery was relatively easy…at least for me. Haha. Of course while you are sitting in the waiting room, your mind is running wild, but it was simple and quick. He is a champ and I’m very grateful for him.”

Lydia also explains her desire to have Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson sit down together.

“Our Easter celebration at my mom’s was very fun. My parents are still married, and have a wonderful relationship. My dad was in Canada for work so he wasn’t there for the celebration. I cherish these moments where my kiddos are young and creating fun times together. My mom is the best and had all the eggs and cookies for us!

I treasure Tamra and our friendship. She has been there for me in a lot of ways and I enjoy who she is and our time together. I also love Vicki and have so many memories of laughing with her. When Tamra and I are working out, I just felt like I could see Tamra’s heart and she was finally at a place to move forward and forgive Vicki. Then Vicki calls! Life sometimes is all about timing and I have a feeling the timing for their friendship still isn’t right, but we’ll have to wait and see next week…”

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 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.

    Lydia I hope you can influence Tamra into getting”rooted and grounded” in the Christian walk! She doesn’t have a clue and she needs help in understanding what that commitment to Christ entails!

      Absolute truth. Great post.

  • mufffie

    I call BS on this … She is so full of it and am so tired of her goody-goody attitude. All for show. Not buying it

      I am sure Shannon agrees. She sure isnt goody goody to her.

    LOL…all good respones

  • Deborah Brenner

    I’m curious about Lydia’s father and what he’s like.

    I am a bit weary of Lydia holding herself up as the Friend Whisperer when she treats Shannon like she does. SHE IS HORRIBLE TO HER. Like Shannon or not, and I do, I like everyone. But Shannon is going through a terrible time in her life. She has been betrayed by her husband and now he is treating her like she doesnt exist again. To have a “friend” treat her like Lydia does is cruel, especially for someone who is supposedly a more enlightened one. Fix your own friendship Lydia.

      I like this. The only thing I see differently is that I don’t think either woman considers the other a “friend”.

        Cast mate. Thats why I used ” Lydia brags about bringing people together and then torments Shannon, falsely accuses her, mocks her. Its sickening. Sure not the love of Christ at its finest.

    Other than the sanctimonious xtian crock of shit she regurgitates, and the word “balls” being on loop coming through those horsey-ass ba-ba-booey chompers, I don’t hate Lydia. She’s akin to a skin tag. Ugly, beige, not worth the hassle of getting rid of, doesn’t hurt but it doesn’t serve a purpose either, you mess with it when you’re bored, and when it dries up and falls off eventually, it takes you a few weeks to realize it’s gone. But you’re happy.
