Lydia McLaughlin: “I Feel Like Shannon Was Looking For A Fight”

Lydia McLaughlin is taking to her Bravo Blog to dish on this week's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Lydia McLaughlin opens up about her issues with Shannon Beador.

Lydia writes:

"This episode was frustrating for me to watch because Shannon is telling her side of the story of what transpired between us at the dinner with the girls and it is quite different than mine...as Shannon mentioned, I called her after Kelly's volleyball party and our fight, because I really don't like drama and I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep unless she heard my heart and where I was coming from. I felt we ended the conversation with a fresh start and a chance for a friendship. I was trying to leave Kelly's party and stay calm even though Shannon upset me, and if that came off dismissive, I apologize for that. I feel like Shannon was looking for a fight so I just wanted to leave and not engage with her.

I wanted her to know that my feelings were hurt when I felt she was squeezing legs under the table and I didn't want to get into it then. So, when the farmhouse dinner happened and she didn't invite me, I felt extra sensitive because I thought we were finally at an ok place after resolving everything and then even going the extra mile and having a phone call where we both felt everything was fine...

Shannon loves a scene. Even at the farmhouse dinner with the girls she says "I don't like drama." And then her next breath she starts a confrontation with Peggy!!! She says one thing and does another so why would I trust her when she says she wasn't squeezing legs about me and not trying to cause a scene...I agree with Meghan and Tamra, the whole thing is dumb. I have never engaged with a grown woman in such juvenile behavior.

Last week in Shannon’s blog she alluded to the fact that I misinterpreted the dinner invite yet this week we see her calling and inviting Meghan to the dinner! Add this to the list of watching her actions vs. the words that come out of her mouth never matching up. She can say one thing, but everything is available for us to watch and as we see -- she invites Meghan to the dinner.

I felt badly for Peggy at the dinner. She had cancer, didn't have cancer, the fact is she had a double mastectomy. This is such a big deal and what do her medical records matter? She has lost her mother. She has lost her father. Yes, the details of her story have changed a bit but perhaps she is living in a fog of sorts. Sometimes when you go through hard situations, you aren't even sure what side is up. I love Peggy and support her and everything she is going through. Maybe it’s a good thing I was left out of the dinner plans..."

What do you think about Lydia’s blog?
