'Real Housewives of Orange County' Season 9: Lydia McLaughlin exits

Lydia McLaughlin, the most undramatic housewife in the history of "The Real Housewives of Orange County," has decided to exit the Bravo reality show after just one season. McLaughlin says the shoe's producers invited her back for more screen time in the OC, but she was ready to cut her losses."I never wanted to make a career out of being a housewife. That's never really been a dream of mine," McLaughlin tells Us Weekly. "I want to build my brand outside of the 'Housewives' -- I've always been really honest with the producers about that. I knew that while I was filming it that I probably wasn't going to be doing it again."Though McLaughlin left the stage in tears during the televised "RHOC" reunion, she insists she had a great time on the show. "I compare it to breaking up with a boyfriend you know you're not going to end up with," she says.

'Real Housewives of Orange County': Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino fired - report

"The Real Housewives of Orange County" Season 9 may be short a couple of housewives. Star magazine reports Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino have been dropped by producers of the Bravo reality show.According to the magazine's inside source, Bellino wasn't even asked back for Season 8 until a new cast member dropped out at the last minute. If true, that would explain Alexis and her misogynistic husband Jim's flimsy storyline and noticeable lack of substance in what little air time they got.Gretchen, on the other hand, probably knew she was next and may or may not have faked an elaborate engagement to Slade Smiley to create a storyline for herself. Her fellow housewives certainly thought that was the case, and made their opinions on the matter known during the "RHOC" Season 8 reunion shows.The newest OC housewives, Heather Dubrow and Lydia McLaughlin have both reportedly been asked to return, along with Tamra Barney and her... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/09/real-housewives-of-orange-county-gretchen-rossi-alexis-bellino-fired---report.html
