Lydia Mclaughlin is back on "The Real Housewives of Orange County" and she expected that things would be the same between the ladies when she signed back on. Lydia claims she remembers how she, vicki gunvalson and Tamra Judge were the best of friends in Mexico. They would dance on bars and party like they were sisters. However, McLaughlin quickly realized that the dynamics on "The Real Housewives of Orange County" had completely changed. Vicki and Tamra had no interest in speaking anymore and despite trying to get them to talk, McLaughlin realized that the damage was too deep.

According to a new report, Lydia McLaughlin is now opening up about how she cherishes her friendships with the ladies. Even though Vicki and Tamra don't speak, she still appreciates them both. This could be why she so desperately wants them to work things out.

Mending the relationships

Lydia McLaughlin learned about the drama between Gunvalson and Judge when she started filming the show again. During a bible study, Tamra told her that she wasn't speaking with Vicki anymore, but she didn't go into details about it. However, Lydia is convinced that she can mend their friendship.

"I treasure Tamra and our friendship. She has been there for me in a lot of ways and I enjoy who she is and our time together.

I also love Vicki and have so many memories of laughing with her. When Tamra and I are working out, I just felt like I could see Tamra’s heart and she was finally at a place to move forward and forgive Vicki," Lydia McLaughlin explains in her Bravo blog.

On Monday's episode of the show, fans saw how Lydia encouraged Tamra to meet for coffee with Vicki.

Even though Shannon Beador would advise against the meeting, McLaughlin is convinced it's for the best.

Damage too deep?

Tamra has teased that fans will have to tune into "The Real Housewives of Orange County" to see how everything works out. However, it sounds like the damage is too deep for Tamra. She has revealed on Twitter that she has absolutely no interest in working things out with Vicki after she mocked the idea that Eddie Judge was gay at her birthday party.

Tamra called her out, saying she was displaying homophobic behavior and she was disgusted. It will be interesting to see what happened when they meet up for coffee during next Monday's episode of the show.
