#RHOC Lydia McLaughlin Calls Out Meghan Edmonds’ Social Media Shade & Hypocritical Behavior!

Posted on Aug 11 2017 - 2:21pm by Staff Writer

Lydia McLaughlin’s Real Housewives of Orange County costars have not all welcomed the returning Christian diva with open arms!



Among Lydia’s castmates creating drama with the mom of two is Meghan Edmonds. And although Meghan has a newborn to care for, she’s been busy slamming Lydia on social media and in her blogs. Meghan attacked Lydia’s integrity in her July 25th Bravo blog. She wrote:

“I’m actually really interested to hear everyone’s sides on how that night played out… Why did Lydia act surprised when Kelly walked in? She invited her! Why did Kelly say she had no idea that they’d be there? Lydia told her the exact restaurant they’d be at! Why did Lydia follow Shannon and Kelly to the bathroom? Part of me thinks that nothing would have exploded and turned in to what it did, had she not been in there. Also, why did Shannon immediately bring up her weight to Kelly? You haven’t seen each other in six months (and are not friendly with each other), and the first thing you decide to bring up is your weight gain? Then Lydia decided it would be a good time to pray for Shannon? So weird! Kelly had to be so drunk, right? The faces in the window at the end of the night – she’s TOO much! I guess on a positive note, Lydia and Shannon were able to make up and potentially become friends now?”

As well as on social media.

Lydia has taken to her Bravo blog to address Meghan’s shade and she points out her hypocritical behavior.

“I was sad to read in her past blogs and social media that she was putting me down for bringing up Vicki to Shannon. That is exactly what she is doing at Peggy’s event to Vicki, and I think at the heart of the issue, is that her intention is good.

Lydia also reminds Meghan (and the other ladies) that Vicki has repeatedly extended olive branches to all her costars.

“I liked seeing the flashbacks of all the times Vicki has apologized, and I have hope that these friendships can be restored.”

But the Christian in Lydia prevails and she rises above Meghan’s childish digs by complimenting the new mom.

“I think Meghan and I are similar in the way that we like to talk things through and have a healthy view of conflict and resolution.”

    Oh good grief Lydia already said she invited Kelly but Kelly called her (we saw this scene as her and Peggy were in Peggy’s car) to tell Lydia that she was out on the boat with friends of her and didn’t think she could make it. So obviously Lydia thought Kelly was a no and then was shocked to see her show up later.

    The invite was with the intention of breaking the ice but in true Shanloon Be-Dork form she flips out AGAIN and makes a complete fool of herself. What adult acts like this.

    • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

      Of course, but we’re too stupid to know that … *eye roll

      • ScrappieONE

        Another story-line they’re going to pound into the ground..

        • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

          Yup … I think I can do without anymore flashbacks of watching Shannut throw the plate of food. They didn’t even run Rinna’s gangsta wine glass smashing this much.

    • Elizabeth Fisher

      Didn’t Lydia invite Kelly to the Quiet Woman to meet Peggy? I don’t remember her saying that Tamra and the Mayor of Crazy Town were going to be there. Kelly said on WWHL that she they arrived at the Quiet Woman, it was HOURS after they were originally supposed to meet there (which makes me think they must have sat around a couple of hours drinking). She said she had no idea they were still there (and she wasn’t mic’d up).

      • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

        I think while filming they intended it to appear like they all just ran into each other by happenstance, but then as THEY watched the show along with us … had to backtrack. I mean, we’re pretty stupid, but we ain’t THAT stupid.

      • ScrappieONE

        That would explain the empty plate with scraps that Shannon threw at Kelly

    • Exactly! This isn’t rocket science. Doesn’t Megan have diapers to change? She’s sure on twitter and in other people’s business a lot these days.

      • Why is this happening to us?

        She has a nanny….lol

  • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

    Nothing new here Megs … we were all asking the same questions when it all went down. It’s always so apparent (and a little annoying) when certain stars are so completely out of touch with the viewers. I find it lazy, but even worse, it suggests they’re just merely showing up and collecting a check.

  • JustSayin

    Why was Megan’s blog nothing but rhetorical questions? I feel like three is about the limit, then you need to MAKE YOUR FUCKING POINT.

    • MicheleJss

      I guess, sense it’s her blog she can do what ever she wants on it. She doesn’t have to make any point for you. I know, you can’t believe that but it’s true.

      • JustSayin

        You’re right, she’s free to ramble on like an idiot 🤣

  • loriann760

    Meghan and Lydia both seem like s**t stirrers to me. I don’t see anything shady about those tweets though. I was wondering the same thing. Why the surprised act when she invited her and told her exactly where they would be. Even is she did get a call saying she wouldn’t be there, she DID invite her and tell her where so the surprised act was a bit much. As for following them to the bathroom, Lydia fancies herself some sort of guru I think, but really she’s just making drama. Shannon is a whack job so her bringing up her weight doesn’t surprise me, and neither does her constant flaking out over nothing. I pity her husband and kids.

  • TartLemon

    Lydia needs to get over herself and grow the F*CK up. That innocent act is complete BS and doesn’t fly when she’s also trying to pretend to be a media entrepreneur. Lydia knew EXACTLY what she was doing and no doubt got playbook tips from POS Vicki.

  • wellWellwell

    This is the best Bravo OC can do conveying Christian’s..Tamrat & Lydia, say NO more!

    • Evil Queen

      Lydia is a true Christian. She is still a flawed human like the rest of us, but at least she walks the walk, & talks the talk.
      Tamara is as much Christian as a Buddhist is.

      • wellWellwell

        I don’t think so, we all have opinions of them and Lydia is no different than the rest. Call me this, call me that, it does not make it so.

      • Champagne Hangover

        Eye of the needle , Christian? 🤔🙄😏 🐫

      • bjeans1

        So Lydia can be a flawed Christian but Tamara can’t what bs, Oh yeah that’s right christian’s pick and choose.

    • TartLemon

      Someone’s connection to the Universe is their own business. It’s all personal interpretation.

      • wellWellwell

        I would say Amen but I just..agree.

    • penny 2

      Some of the worst verbal arguments I’ve ever seen were at my daughter’s Christian softball league games!

      • wellWellwell

        penny, I grew up Catholic with a strict father and his brow beating parents.
        I know what you mean. Love this one and that one, when I have seen them go for each others throats at games and Friday night fish fry’s. Ugh.. what’s between me and God is between us. I get ‘fellowship’ but I don’t run in a pack.
        I’m not a wolf and what I say to God stays between us without robbers in my pocket and brow beating.

  • Wicked Cupcake

    Meagan is an asshole. The end.

    • Champagne Hangover

      Who isn’t an asshole on that franchise? Apparently, it’s a job requirement.

  • Champagne Hangover

    Lydia be stirring shit while calling on Jesus. She’s like a white, less shady version of Ms. Phaedra Parks (minus the prayer cloth and the felon ex huzzzzband…). JC would NOT be amused.

    • Evil Queen

      That’s a stretch. The only commonality is they are both HW’s.

  • Sugar in my tank

    Sooooo, Miss Wannabe Investigative Judgmental journalist Meghan is at it again… Remind me why is she even back? I am a little confused by the bs..We all know the wonders of editing and we all know how editing these shows are like putting together pieces in a boring ass jigsaw puzzle..Look Lydia is a ditz and that makes for funny television especially with her mom…Bravo, instead of trying to create a storyline with Meghan where “NONE” exists, hire a P.I. to follow that husband of hers..that’s probably where the scorching hot tea is at..

    • Weeds1

      Lydia is a viper and she knew what she was doing. Shannon and Tamra asked her not to bring up Vicki yet she did. The thirst is real. As for Vicki’s olive branches? What she did is unforgivable.

      • MicheleJss

        Yup, just because a person puts a branch out doesn’t mean all is OK. Vicki has never made that subject any better so she left it that way.

      • Sugar in my tank

        Lydia is a ditzy ding dong and entertaining to me. Tamra and Shannon are proven liars, sh*t stirrers and connivers. Neither of those professional victims should tell another adult “what to say”. Tamra needs to take her daughter’s pleas and not discuss her publicly and Shannon needs to heal from the infidelity, humiliation and domestic abuse from her husband and stop blaming others for her issues..Vicki is neither innocent or to blame for these women issues and I am not sure about what you meant about unforgivable because you didn’t clarify..

    • MicheleJss

      All Megan did was just put out the obvious and she isn’t the only one who sees it for what it really is.

      • Sugar in my tank

        Well that’s what you see..I don’t. Meghan is doing nothing more than pointing out what the viewers heard. As part of the cast, she’s aware that what we watch is edited and manipulated by production. Now, what I also heard was that these women frequent this restaurant and live in the same neighborhood which mean they have friends and acquaintances in common..I also know that Bravo is attempting to boost ratings by having cast attack one another on social media which keeps the drama going and viewership up which equates to $$$ from tv sponsors…Business 101. Not hating, just saying.

    • Authentic

      So true!

  • sideof Sour Cream

    Lydia Mclaughlin is the thirstiest HW. and you know why? It’s because she cannot understand why we all don’t fawn over her thick hair.
    It’s her only attribute.

  • TartLemon

    I know many don’t agree, but Meghan does not instigate. She checks out info she is expected to believe and cosign. If somebody says something once, no problem; twice even. It’s when the when the info begins to intrude on every area of her personal space and group dynamic.

  • bjeans1

    I can’t stand Lydia she as fake as they come with the bible thumping, but I will agree with her about her dad having some balls to get rid of that loon of a mother of hers, I can picture him coming home and walking into a cloud of pot smoke, fairy dust thrown on him while she ran around tippy toeing threw the tulips. Why is her mother even on here.

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Oh my! That’s a horrible pic of Megan. She looks like she has a prosthetic on her face.
