Lydia McLaughlin Gushes About Her Friendship With Gretchen Rossi And Explains Why She’s ‘Excited’ About New Season Of RHOC Following Tamra Judge And Vicki Gunvalson’s Exits; Says “I Think It’s A Good Switch-Up. I’m Excited To See What The Cast Does”

Lydia McLaughlin, who recently launched her digital series for Bravo called Glitter Town, is sharing her thoughts on the new upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Since leaving the show after Season 12 she reveals that she has since become close friends with former co-star Gretchen Rossi.

“We’re in a bible study together,” Lydia said during an appearance on Bravo's The Daily Dish podcast. “We’ve grown really close. She’s a wonderful mom, and she loves her little baby, and she’s just dedicated her whole life to Skylar. I’m so proud of her.”

As for Lydia’s opinion on Season 15 of RHOC? “I am here to spill the tea,” she said. Lydia went on to say that after 15 seasons, she finds it refreshing to meet some fresh faces, as it’s interesting to take a look into the lives of new people who have stories to tell.

When asked how she feels about Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson not returning, Lydia explained, “I felt like it was a long time coming, honestly. I think it’s a good switch-up. I’m excited to see what the cast does.”

“I love Vicki, and I ran into her a couple times, and I think it’s good for her. I think she’s ready to leave,” Lydia continued. “She has a successful relationship, she has an engagement. She has a daughter, she’s a grandmother. I think that she has a lot going on. I do know that Tamra…she’s not letting it go. She’s still talking about it. I just feel bad for her, it’s kind of like, OK, you need to move on and do something else. She’s talking about the next season, and I think it’s a little…it sounds pathetic.”

She also reveals that she is not in a good place with Judge and Shannon Beador. “Shannon [Storms Beador] and Tamra both have blocked me, so I don’t know what’s going on in their lives,” she said. “I don’t know, maybe they’ve unblocked me now. I haven’t checked lately.”
