Lydia McLaughlin is exiting The Real Housewives of Orange County after one season of the flagship Bravo franchise, the reality star herself confirms.
"It's bittersweet," McLaughlin told Us Weekly of her departure.
"I compare it to breaking up with a boyfriend you know you're not going to end up with. It's hard, but overall you know you're doing the right thing."
The quirky, Canadian-born magazine entrepreneur and married mother of two is just the latest reported casualty of the long-running reality smash.
Alexis Bellino and Gretchen Rossi were l, leaving Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney and Heather Dubrow as the only holdovers still appearing.
