Lydia McLaughlin: I Quit The Real Housewives of Orange County! Again!

Lydia McLaughlin has an announcement to make.

And it’s an announcement you may have heard her make before.

The Real Housewives of Orange County cast member took to her official blog on Friday and confirmed that she will no longer be a Real Housewives of Orange County cast member

“RHOC has given me a great platform and I’m grateful for that. However, I feel like I can only handle this show one season at a time,” McLaughlin wrote online, adding:

“I need a break! There is a lot of good that comes from the show, but also a lot of negativity.

“After a family vote, it was unanimous that I should take a break. Sometimes the people who love us the most see things even we don’t see.

“I trust my path and I’m excited for what the future holds.”

Indeed, McLaughlin initially joined this Bravo franchise in season 8.

She departed the cable network hit just before season 9, yet returned last year as a full-time cast member for season 12.

Earlier this year, it was also reported that Meghan King Edmonds would not return to Orange County for next season.

She swears this was her decision.

And McLaughlin insists the same.

“Bravo and Evolution have been amazing to me and I have made great friendships,” she continued on her blog, expounding:

“I treasure all my fans and appreciate all the love and support.

“I’ve been honored to be a source of entertainment and inspiration to all of you and I hope to continue spreading light and love.

“Being a full time mom to THREE little boys, publisher of NOBLEMAN Magazine, blogger, jewelry designer, author, and wife, I have a lot going on!

“I will continue to share my life and faith and use this platform to be a lightworker.”

In other words: we haven’t heard the last from Lydia McLaughlin.

We’ve just seen the last of her on Bravo.

McLaughlin and her husband, Doug, have three kids:

  1. Stirling, 8.
  2. Maverick, 6.
  3. Roman, 2.

These children, Doug and even McLaughlin’s mother have been featured on The Real Housewives of Orange County at various points.

We don’t know just when when season 13 will air, but it’s clear the cast will look a bit different whenever that date arrives.

Any suggestions for women who should fill these two open slots?

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 8 Recap: Petty Mess

Dorit Kemsley is not a great singer. 

That much was revealed when The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 8 got underway. 

PK was still talking about his big birthday bash and confirmed that Boy George thought she was a terrible singer. 

Surprisingly, Dorit did not seem to care about what her husband was saying and continued with her day. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, you will likely recall Dorit throwing a party and performing with Boy George as a gift to PK. 

You would think PK would have been nicer about the whole thing because his wife went above and beyond to make his day special. 

Dorit met up with Kyle Richard and Lisa Vanderpump, and they got talking about the lawsuit against Ken Todd. 

Lisa was quick to point out that that the lawsuit had been dropped, and all seemed right in the world. 

Then, Dorit let Kyle know she was mad that she got involved in everything that happened with Teddi. Dorit later claimed Lisa Vanderpump did not love Kyle the way Kyle loved her. 

It was an awkward scene, and Lisa was not impressed and subsequently made her exit from the situation because she was angry at the way things went down. 

Lisa dished in a confessional that she was upset at the way her supposed friends took no interest in the lawsuit being dropped. They are supposed to be her friends. 

Dorit then told Kyle that Vanderpump had told her things about her childhood, and Kyle was not amused because she felt like Vanderpump had betrayed her. 

There are reasons for keeping things on the down low from close friends, and it seemed bizarre that Kyle would turn on her friend that way. 

Later, Dorit, Kyle, Vanderpump and Erika Jayne made their way to Teddi’s beach house to have a little break from the outside world. 

Lisa was quick to bring up the whole lunch date that went awry. Dorit and Kyle countered that Lisa was only mad because the attention wasn’t on her. 

“If Dorit was sitting there crying, would you have gotten up and left?” Kyle asked Lisa as the argument intensified. 

“I don’t know,” Vanderpump admitted. 

It’s random that these two were even arguing in the first place, but at least they put their feuding aside before the night was over. 

Something tells us Dorit will continue to stir the pot. She didn’t mix it nearly enough at the beach house because it’s not like we got another argument between her and Teddi. 

Maybe that’s being saved for an upcoming episode, but the show needs some drama. You know times are tough when even Kyle and Lisa V are getting into petty arguments. 

It’s like the producers are trying everything to inject some life back into the show. The cast could be doing with a refresh, and that’s not to say Teddi should go. 

Teddi is the most down-to-earth housewife in the history of the series and does not seem to be as excited about wealth as her fellow cast members. 

Nothing is happening on the show anymore that’s worth talking about. Not even Lisa Vanderpump’s witty one-liners can save it at this stage. 

Maybe Brandi Glanville should re-join the cast, and we would have a show worth watching again. 

What do you think of the latest drama? Does the cast need to be revamped?

Hit the comments.

Shannon Beador: I Want David Beador OFF The Real Housewives of Orange County!

It’s been about two months since Shannon Beador filed for divorce on December 1st.

Since then, things have gone from somewhat amicable to no-holds-barred hostilities between Shannon and David Beador.

Now, Shannon is taking things a step further — and reportedly trying to get David fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County.

A little before Halloween, Shannon and David Beador decided to split after 17 years.

It had been reported that the two of them were basically living separate lives in the same household anyway, so the separation was not a huge surprise.

Still, the two of them had resolved to maintain some semblance of normality for the sake of their daughters.

For starters, even though David stopped loving Shannon when she became “fat,” they had resolved to keep things friendly.

They even scheduled regular weekend activities for the whole family.

But it’s really hard to go from loving your partner in life to feeling neutral-yet-friendly towards them. It is so much easier to hate them.

Things no longer appear to be amicable between the exes.

For starters, Shannon Beador apparently does not make the kind of money that David does, so she’s wanting a good deal when it comes to division of property and when it comes to alimony.

That’s pretty standard for divorce, but so are contentious debates about money.

In fact, it’s been reported that Shannon Beador accuses David of hiding money. If true, that sort of sneaky move to make it appear that he has less than he does could mean that a court might not have him pay Shannon her fair share.

And now it sounds like Shannon can’t even stand the sight of David.

RadarOnline reports that Shannon Beador wants David fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County.

She’s getting divorced, so that’s a huge thing that they’d need to cover, but Shannon believes that there’s enough unused footage of David from previous seasons.

“Shannon wants producers to use old footage to tell her story next season.”

That’s a hefty demand, especially from someone who’s reportedly negotiating more money from the show in order to spill secrets for the cameras.

“At this moment, she doesn’t want anything to do with him and filming with him would make this whole process so much harder on her.”

So this sounds less like a calculated financial sabotage and more like a lack of desire to show up to work with a man she can’t stand to be around.

“It is already really hard on her and the kids and there is just no reason to bring him on-camera if they already have what they need.”

For Shannon, this is a deep and emotional pain. They only split a few months ago and it will take a lot of time for these fresh wounds to heal.

“She is still hurting inside a lot.”

Imagine getting a divorce but showing up to work and your spouse is there and the two of you are supposed to spend a lot of time together. That’s what she’s facing.

“Shannon is in a better place than she was but she still does not want to have to face him, on-camera or in real life, because it is very hard.”

Shannon’s desire to go without David is very understandable.

And obviously, if one of them is to leave the show, we can’t imagine why it would be the Housewife. Not all of the Real Housewives are actually wives, but Shannon still makes more sense than David.

But we can’t help but wonder if this effort could come back to bite her.

Were he so inclined, couldn’t David try to sue her for “ruining his reality career” as Blac Chyna has been attempting with the Kardashians?

This is a fight over money, ultimately, and there’s no reason to believe that David will just go quietly.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 7 Recap: Birthday Fever

Dorit Kemsley’s feud with Teddi Mellencamp looks like one for the ages. 

When The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 7 got underway, Dorit was busy showing off the luxury yacht she was using as the venue for PK’s 50th birthday party. 

Lisa Vanderpump seemed shocked by the news that Dorit was performing with Boy George at the event. Maybe it’s because if you’re name-dropping, you should use an A-list celebrity. 

Boy George is busy doing the reality TV circuit because, well, his career has not been in good shape for quite some time now. 

In another part of town, Teddi was still mad about what happened the last time she was in the presence of Dorit. Dorit was mad about being served wine in a champagne flute. 

“I mentioned about the glass because I do pay attention to those things,” Dorit complained to Vanderpump.

“I’m finding her to be a little bit tightly wound,” said about Teddi. 

Teddi was given an invite to the event, and she met up with the likes of Camille Grammer, Kyle Richards, Erika Girardi, Mauricio and the two Lisas. 

PK, who has made a name for himself for calling out the rest of the housewives and implying they are all deluded, seemed ecstatic about the whole thing. 

He even showed his humanity and burst into tears. That’s when Dorit disappeared to get ready for her big performance with Boy George. 

Erika was the one who helped out with the performance, and you could tell Dorit was thankful. 

“Her support is the only thing that is getting me through,” Dorit confessed to the camera with a grin. 

“It takes a lot of balls to perform at your husband’s party,” Erika said of her friend. “Bravo.”

The performance was decent, and the friends and family seemed to lap it up. 

Who doesn’t love a bit of free entertainment at a party? Dorit’s vocals were probably better than Boy George’s and that’s saying something. 

Later, Dorit wanted to get to the root cause of all the drama with Teddi, so she pulled her aside and Teddi was not ready to deal with all of the drama. 

“I don’t give a f—k about the glass,” Teddi snapped at her enemy and giving the most condescending look in the history of the franchise. 

“You are psycho. You’re psycho, honestly!” Dorit screamed back, clearly irate that Teddi did not want to entertain the thought that maybe she was in the wrong. 

Teddi was taken aback but decided to try and let bygones be bygones and asked Dorit to put it all behind them. 

“I’m not going to get over it if you keep acting like a psycho bitch,” Dorit said with a stern look.

Yeah, like we said, a feud for the ages!

What did you think of all the drama?

Are you on Team Teddi or Team Dorit?

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 11 Recap: Tea Is Of The Essence

If you were holding out hope for some fresh blood on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, then we’re sure The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 11 was for you. 

America’s Next Top Model winner Eva Marcille was the new addition to the cast, and she brought a whole lot of drama with her. 

Eva met up with Nene Leakes for a lunch date and wasted no time in confirming that Cynthia’s boyfriend, Will, had a girlfriend when she met up with him months before. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, you will know that Will has been rather adamant about being single for the last few years. 

The ladies wanted to look out for their friend, so they quickly tried to get the details they needed to rule him out as a liar. 

When confronted, he did admit to dating the woman but claimed they were not an item and that they no longer keep in contact. 

Will was mad that Eva was talking smack behind his back and took issue with it, but Nene stood up for Eva because she felt he should not be trashing a woman like that. 

Cynthia seemed like she wanted to curl up into a ball and weep, and admitted that she had no idea who to believe. She made it clear that she would not date a man with a girlfriend. 

Porsha then dropped the bomb that she had some vital information about the man that could change everything Cynthia thought she knew. 

The episode concluded before Porsha got into the details, but it sure was a fun twist. 

Elsewhere, Kenya Moore was still struggling to be apart from her new husband. Yeah, that dude who does not want to be part of the show. 

It’s comical that the man HATES everything the show stands for but is happy enough to be married to one of the cast members. 

Where’s the logic?

Kenya opened up to the girls about her wanting her husband nearby and revealed the root of her wishes. She wanted to have a baby with him. 

We already know that Kenya is in the bad books with the producers because of her keeping aspects of her life private, but could a pregnancy storyline save her employment with the show?

We have no idea, but it’s sure fun to think about the lengths one would go to in order to stay in the limelight. 

Kenya seems to think that purchasing weightlifting equipment for Marc will allow him to move to Atlanta and make everything great again. 

Finally, Kandi was on the cover of Essence, and much of the drama from the hour took place at the party to celebrate it. 

Kandi is at the top of her game, and she knows how to throw a party. Kandi invited Porsha to the event … even though they both hate each other. 

What will she say about Porsha having dirt on Cynthia’s man?

Real Housewives of New Jersey: Struggling to Find New Cast, Facing Cancellation (Report)

Are you a female resident of the Garden State whose taste for drama is matched only by her love of sequins and spray tans?

Then contact Andy Cohen ASAP, because you might have a future flipping tables on one of reality TV’s trashiest series!

Yes, The Real Housewives of New Jersey is looking for new cast members.

It’s exciting news for Jersey residents, as along with the E Street Band and Chris Christie’s gravy supplier, the show is one of the state’s most reliable sources of steady employment.

With Siggy Flicker departing the series and ratings at an all-time low, cast members and producers are reportedly desperate to pull RHONJ “out of the gutter.”

And in this case, that’s not just a euphemism for moving out of New Jersey.

“Network execs told the ladies that they had to get the show ‘out of the gutter’ or else it was going to be canceled,” a production source tells Radar Online.

Insiders say the show is finding trouble finding affluent women who are willing to blow up their personal lives on national television for 15 minutes of fame.

Go figure!

“The women were told to find a way to make the show better and to help find a new lady to join the show that wouldn’t be so divisive. Bravo wants fun and this season was not fun,” says the insider.

Wait … there was a fun season of RHONJ?!

Would that be the one where Teresa Giudice went to prison, or the one where her husband went to prison?

We kid. In its early days, the show really did have a sense of fun and frivolity.

Of course, it’s hard to hold onto that when you have cast members serving hard time.

Anyway, the effort to land a new Jersey Housewife has reportedly gone in some bizarre directions.

According to one report, Melissa Gorga attempted to convince Chrissy Teigen to join the cast.

It didn’t pan out for the obvious reasons that Teigen is 1. not from New Jersey, 2. not a housewife, and 3. far too famous to ever seriously consider such a move.

But we can’t blame Gorga for trying something desperate, as sources say if the show doesn’t land a new lady soon, it won’t be returning for another season.

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online to get caught up in time for what could be the show’s final episodes.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 15 Recap: Margaret vs. Siggy

Kim D was back to stir the pot on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 15, and Teresa Giudice was not about to let her leave without throwing in her two cents. 

“F—k yeah, I’m on probation, bitch,” Teresa snarled at her enemy before saying that Posche stood for “Piece Of S—t Coke wHore Every day.”

Yes, we’re not so sure Teresa is very good at her spelling. We pity the editor of her books. 

Kim then pointed out that the fashion show raised $ 3,000 for the family, and that only paved the way for some more drama as Teresa claimed Kim stole some of the money for herself. 

Teresa yelled that Kim D liked to wreck marriages, and even threw in some words about her being a madame. This paved the way for Kim to say that she did not hate the idea of being one. 

Wouldn’t it be great if returned full-time? There would be fights on an episodic basis. It would really be Kim D vs. the world. 

When Kim D was ushered out of the studio because she served her purpose to rile the women up, Margaret Josephs admitted that she was being sued for over $ 9 million by Vineyard Vines. 

This has been widely speculated on social media and something Siggy Flicker has been taunting her with via social media, so it’s excellent that Margaret admitted it. 

Margaret was adamant that it was “normal” in the industry, but Siggy continued to try and paint the fashion designer as a bad person. 

Now that Siggy is out of the cast, we can breathe a huge sigh of relief until the producers cast the next unstable person to try and cut the women down. 

Then, it all switched up and gave us a Dolores Catania and Danielle Staub argument for the ages. If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you will already know that Danielle has been critical of Dolores’ relationship with her ex-husband, Frank. 

Dolores admitted that something was “off” with Danielle and that she did not have any evidence to back up the claims that she was on drugs.

“I get it. You don’t like me, but shut the f—k up and stop calling me names,” Danielle fired back at her nemesis. 

“I don’t want anything to do with Dolores Catania, that piece of s—t,” Danielle subsequently said while Dolores was backstage, and it became clear that Dolores loved winding Danielle up. 

She was legit laughing and Danielle shouting. Well played, Dolores. 

In the end, it all came down to Margaret vs. Siggy, which has been the storyline all season long. 

Siggy would not confirm whether she thought Margaret was anti-semitic, saying: 

“Only Margaret knows what’s in her heart.”

But things took a tense turn when Margaret started telling Siggy that she had deep ties to Jewish people. 

“Shame on you. You are not Jewish. You didn’t convert. You are not Jewish,” Siggy balked at her. 

Andy chimed in with his thoughts and admitted that his parents did not agree with Siggy’s sentiments about Margaret. 

“You don’t bring him up in casual conversation,” Siggy said. “It’s done.”

So, that’s a wrap on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8!

What did you think of all the action? 

Was it worth the wait?

Meghan King Edmonds: I’m Leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County!

So, remember how Meghan King Edmonds was initially on a list of women rumored to be fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County? But then we all learned that Meghan King Edmonds was pregnant again so it looked like she was safe?

It turns out that the speculation may have been for naught, because she’s announced that she’s quitting.

But one report claims that her lengthy farewell post is just a cover — that she ended up getting fired. Hmmm. …

Writing on her blog, Meghan King Edmonds announced that she’s leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County.

“Today is a bittersweet day for me.  After three seasons of the rollercoaster that is The Real Housewives of Orange County I’ve decided to hang up my OC Housewife hat.”

We like to imagine that such a hat would resemble a giant orange.

“I arrived at this multi-faceted decision after much thought, and then I thought some more.”

Sure.

“As you might suspect filming this show takes a massive emotional toll: I’m literally filming my real life in real time and engaged in situations and circumstances which can be contentious.”

Oh, of that we have no doubt. The filming hours alone must be brutal, not to mention juggling your other responsibilities. And then the episodes air.

“Then, when the show airs, we relive some of the most trying moments in our lives and then endure the public’s reaction; we never come out as winners to every viewer.”

“But what you might not suspect is the physical toll: filming is grueling!”

Especially, we imagine, if you’re a parent. Or pregnant.

“After my first season I knew what to expect for round two, but even still, filming during IVF and then the beginning of pregnancy during my second season was difficult. I was hormonal and tired all the time.”

IVF presents its own challenges, folks.

“But my third season takes the cake: I had a newborn and had to hire a full time live-in nanny (my cousin) so as to allow me the flexibility to meet my obligations of continuous days and long hours of filming, traveling, etc.”

Even with a nanny, parenting was still a full-time job.

“When I was home I was a full time hands-on mom (you didn’t get to see this) doing all the regular mom stuff including waking up at all hours to breast feed my baby – all while my husband worked his crazy baseball schedule around the US while I was learning how to be a first time mom.”

“Again, I was hormonal and EXHAUSTED.  My mind was often foggy as I filmed but I put on a great face and did it because I loved being a Housewife and was so grateful for my opportunity.”

It’s a big opportunity that comes with an even bigger paycheck.

“It was only after the season was filmed that I felt I was finally out of the newborn fog and I could look back on the past few months of season 12 with clarity.  I had no idea how exhausted I actually was until I wasn’t exhausted anymore!  Season 12 was a real challenge for me.”

It sure sounds like it.

She then talks about happy, behind-the-scenes filming memories, showing that she bares no ill will towards the production staff.

“And lastly but not least importantly, I wanted to spend more time with my husband during baseball season and more time with my two young step kids who live full-time in St Louis.”

Oh, those are some good priorities.

“So Jimmy and I have decided to dig our roots into the midwest as we begin to build our dream home for our rapidly expanding family.”

Well, voluntarily living in the midwest sure is a choice.

“I must focus on my family and my pregnancy.   I will miss the rush of the first all-cast event of the season, the anticipation of receiving each week’s episode, the thrill of wrapping the reunion.”

She says that she forged some powerful bonds during her time as a Real Housewife.

“I have made soul sisters in Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge and that can’t be lost.”

Well … Shannon Beador, at least, seems like a good friend.

“They have touched my heart and I would do anything for them and I know they feel the same way about me – what a gift to have found that on RHOC!”

She ends her post with a joke.

“But I guess it’s time for me to become an actual real housewife of sorts.  Oh, the irony!”

That’s all well and good, but there’s this other claim that Meghan King Edmonds is just putting on a good face after getting fired from RHOC.

In fact, RadarOnline reports that their source claims that what got Meghan fired was, at least in part, her attempt to leverage her pregnancy (with twins!) for more money.

“She did the same thing with her first pregnancy and it worked. But producers weren’t biting this time around. They felt that she didn’t bring anything to the table and everyone was sick of her manufactured fake drama!”

Their insider clearly doesn’t think much of her, because this is how they responded to her long, bittersweet announcement:

“The truth is that Meghan wouldn’t have written all that on her blog if she did in fact quit the show. She would have just quit!”

Wow.

“Instead, she is trying to pretend that she doesn’t care and putting the blame on others when she knows that it is her own fault.”

Whatever the truth is, we wish Meghan King Edmonds and her family the best!
