Lydia McLaughlin RHOC Season 12

EXCLUSIVE: Lydia McLaughlin Came Back To Be The Friendship Messiah

Friendship Messiah!

Yesterday, the explosive trailer for the twelfth season of The Real Housewives of Orange County was released (check it out here). As we have known for quite some time now, Lydia McLaughlin is back as a full time Housewife. We spoke to an insider close to production this morning who dished on why McLaughlin was brought back into the OC fold.

EXCLUSIVE: Lydia McLaughlin Came Back To Be The Friendship Messiah

According to our source, “Lydia needs to be the friendship messiah to make things work out this season.”

“The friendship whisperer isn’t enough!” they added.

On all of the Housewives shows, there usually is some sort of role of the “peacemaker” that one of the women takes on. When McLaughlin was last on the franchise, she wasn’t really involved in any major drama, so her playing this part makes sense.

We cannot wait to see RHOC when it returns.
