Lydia McLaughlin hasn’t been on The Real Housewives of Orange County for a couple of years. She left the show willingly because she wanted to focus on her family and she wanted to have another child. Lydia and her husband, Doug McLaughlin, had a third son, Roman, and they recently launched another business venture. Even though Lydia wanted to take some time away from The Real Housewives of Orange County, she revealed that she never wanted to close the door completely. Now, three years later, would she consider coming back to the show?
According to a new tweet, Lydia McLaughlin is wanted on The Real Housewives of Orange County, and fans voiced their opinions on Twitter this week. On Watch What Happens Live, it was revealed that McLaughlin is wanted back on the show and she had no idea what was going on when her Twitter account started heating up with mentions.

It sounds like fans would love to see Lydia back on the show. McLaughlin definitely brought an innocent side to the show, which hasn’t been seen since. Lydia was one of the first people to walk out of a reunion special because the yelling and screaming was too much for her. Plus, she was shocked at how dramatic people were for the cameras, which was a bit too much. When McLaughlin announced that she was leaving the show, she thanked her fans in her Bravo blog, sharing that she couldn’t express how thankful she was for the support.

“To my fans I would like to say thank you for all of your support. Oprah once said, “People who are too weak to follow their own dreams will always find a way to discourage yours.” I hope I gave just one person the courage to be themselves and to follow that little voice inside. It has been a journey and I hope to continue to grow from this experience. Words can’t express the gratitude and love I feel from the all my incredible fans. I am so thankful and humbled by you,” Lydia McLaughlin revealed in her Real Housewives of Orange County blog, according to Bravo.

Even though McLaughlin was overwhelmed with the way the other ladies were behaving, she was still thankful for being on the show. Plus, Lydia had no problem putting herself in the group of women who are strong, opinions and very different.
“We are all strong, opinionated, different woman. We butt heads at time, but we also are a family. At least, that’s how I see it. I have been hurt, frustrated and angry at some of the ladies at different times, but each of them has qualities that I admire and love. I don’t do well with tearing each other down. I like building people up,” Lydia McLaughlin pointed out on her blog, sharing that she likes to build people up.

The show is wrapping on television these days, which means it could be another few months before contracts are issued.
