Though both women showed up for Gunvalson’s recent 55th birthday party, a source close to production insisted that McLaughlin is secretly Team Tamra.
“Lydia is trying to make it like she and Vicki are cool, but a lot of people think that the only reason she is cool with Vicki is because she wants to report back to Tamra,” an insider told Radar Online. “Some of the girls don’t really trust her and are wondering why Bravo brought her back on, anyways.”
Last season ended with Gunvalson, Kelly Dodd and former RHOC star Gretchen Rossi in an alliance against Judge Shannon Beador and Heather Dubrow.
While Rossi never made any appearances last season, she was onvlovled in multiple online feuds with Beador, Judge and even Dubrow at one point following the Season 8 Uncensored special episode.
But after losing Dubrow, it seems that Judge’s pals recruited Meghan King Edmonds, as the triad were just all out shopping together!
“It’s interesting that Meghan seems to be on Tamra’s side now, especially considering she said that she was going to be leaving the O.C.,” the source told Radar. “Maybe it’s a desperate move to get back on the show!”
