‘Real Housewives of Orange County’: Meet new cast member Lydia McLaughlin

Real Housewives of Orange CountyIt’s still over a month away until the premiere of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” season 8, but Bravo has already brought in a new housewife and if she’s anything like Heather Dubrow then we are happy for the new edition.

“Orange County” will welcome a new housewife named Lydia McLaughlin along with her husband to the group consisting of Tamara Barney, Gretchen Rossi, Heather Dubrow, Vicki Gunvalson and Alexis Bellino.  Reports from US Weekly reveal that McLaughlin  owns and operates a high-end magazine that focuses on the glamorous lifestyle of Southern California.

So what can we expect from “The Real Housewives of Orange County” season 8?  Well one bombshell is that Rossi is ready to start a family with her boyfriend Slade Smiley, but is he ready for that next step in their relationship too? Barney on the other hand will be fantastically frustrated that her fiance, Eddie Judge, is still balking when it comes to setting a wedding date, but the more that Barney presses the issue, the more he tells her that the pressure is getting to be too much for him.  We hope that it won’t send Eddie running for the hills, because we really like him and Tamara together.

“The Real Housewives of Orange Country” season 8 will be premiering on Monday, April 1st at 8 p.m. on Bravo, will you be watching?  Do you want to see Gretchen and Slade start a family? And what do you think of Eddie’s attitude towards setting a wedding date for his marriage to Tamara?  Leave us a comment and tell us what you think.
