This makes me so sad. I think it may have something to do with how her mother was treated. But according to USWeekly, Lydia has quit RHOOC! The rumor mill has it that Alexis and Gretchen were fired for lack of storyline. So, RHOOC will have a major shakeup. Only Vicki, Tamra and Heather are still standing.
Typically chilled out during her short tenure on the show, McLaughlin assures Us that there’s “no epic story” or feud behind her decision to leave the show. “I never wanted to make a career out of being a housewife. That’s never really been a dream of mine,” says McLaughlin, who shares kids Stirling, 4, and Maverick, 2, with husband Doug. Although producers asked McLaughlin to come back (“I was really flattered!”), she explains, “I want to build my brand outside of the Housewives — I’ve always been really honest with the producers about that. I knew that while I was filming it that I probably wasn’t going to be doing it again.
I will miss you, Lydia. You were a breath of fresh air. And we could all us some fairy dust. Lydia is probably the richest person on any RH franchise and doesn’t need to do this. You can expect her to fund her own reality show soon. She could buy and sell Andy Cohen ten times.
