It’s never easy entering a group of ladies, especially when that group of ladies is a cast of Real Housewives! Lydia McLaughlin will be introduced on the third episode of Real Housewives of Orange County‘s season eight when she comes with Alexis to Tamra’s dinner party at C.U.T. Who was not so welcoming?
Lydia tells Wetpaint of how it was coming into the group at first, “For me, I get introduced to the group because Alexis brings me to a party and Alexis, at the time, most of them don’t like Alexis. So you’re walking in and they automatically don’t like me before I opened my mouth. So that was an uphill battle at first.”
And who specifically was not very happy to see Lydia? She reveals, “Heather [Dubrow]’s taken me under her wing and given me lots of advice. I thought I was going to get along with Gretchen [Rossi], but she was the coldest to me when I joined the group. I have no idea why.”
Are you surprised that Gretchen was the coldest? I get that she came on as Alexis’s friend and Gretchen was no longer friends with Alexis, but Heather clearly was not friends with Alexis and that didn’t stop her from being nice to Lydia. Are you looking forward to seeing Lydia mingle with the Housewives?
Gretchen Rossi responds telling AllAboutTRH, “Unfortunately we had so much going on w/slades son and it didn’t allow much time for anything else, so I wasn’t able to spend a lot of time with Lysa and she knows this is why cause we talked about it.”
