Lydia Mclaughlin decided to return to "The Real Housewives of Orange County" after spending some time with her family away from the Bravo camera crew. For a while, Lydia filmed the show with vicki gunvalson and Tamra Judge and she felt that they were great friends. They traveled to Mexico and she had fun. But McLaughlin eventually left the show to focus on her family and her children.

But now, Lydia McLaughlin is back on the show and she's excited to be on the show once again. She's definitely stronger these days and she's ready to handle the drama that comes with "The Real Housewives of Orange County." Last time she was on the show, Lydia walked off the show because she was too shocked at how the ladies were talking to one another.

It was too much for her innocent and calm lifestyle. But McLaughlin feels she's ready to be in the show again and she decided to come back.

Lydia wants Tamra and Vicki back together?

On Monday's episode of "The Real Housewives of Orange County," Lydia McLaughlin revealed that she wanted to get Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge back together. McLaughlin feels these two ladies have a great friendship and she thought it was a mistake for them to not be talking. But Lydia also reveals that she hasn't watched the show while she wasn't filming the show.

"I wasn't around the last few years, I didn’t watch rhoc and I really haven't kept up with drama. I didn't know all that had transpired besides what my friends told me.

I love Tamra and Vicki. I like them getting along. In my mind, I was trying to go on the road of forgiveness by bringing her up, but the opposite happened," Lydia McLaughlin writes in her Bravo blog for "The Real Housewives of Orange County."

Of course, McLaughlin wasn't around for several years, including the drama over Brooks Ayers and the dramatic trip to Ireland.

She can only look at what she knows from a few years ago.

Is her mission a lost cause?

Her mission to get Tamra and Vicki back together as friends may be a lost cause. Tamra doesn't seem interested in making up with Gunvalson, even though Vicki may be open to working things out with her former friend. Vicki doesn't feel she has done anything wrong, which may be the beginning of a friendship that can't be fixed.

As for Lydia McLaughlin, she may have a strong desire to fix their friendship and may continue to try.
