Lydia McLaughlin decided to leave The Real Housewives of Orange County behind a few years ago to focus on her business and family. She really wanted a third child and within months, she announced her pregnancy. And despite her claiming that she didn’t want to return to the show, she teased her return on Instagram a few days ago. But according to a new Instagram, Lydia McLaughlin is now hinting that she is indeed filming for The Real Housewives of Orange County, but her return could be temporary.
“So fun having my mom there yesterday for filming a special #RHOC,” Lydia McLaughlin revealed on Instagram the day after she revealed that she’s back. Lydia revealed that she would “be there soon” and that she was filming something for The Real Housewives of Orange County. But today, she’s revealing that she’s filming “a special” for the show. So, does that mean she isn’t returning full-time?
It is possible that Lydia is just filming a special for Bravo – perhaps a catch-up special on housewives who have left the show behind. It is possible that she won’t be a full-time housewife on the new season. Bravo has done specials in the past, where they catch up with previous housewives, especially for their 100th episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
McLaughlin has previously revealed that she wouldn’t want to film the show again, because it was too dramatic for her. When she finally decided to leave the show, it was because God told her to do it and leave everything behind. But if she is coming back full-time, one can imagine that she will update viewers when she films a scene or two.
Would you be disappointed if Lydia McLaughlin only came back to Bravo for a special, or do you want to see her as a full-time housewife?
