I want to start off by addressing a few things from last week's episode. I don't take myself too seriously, which is one reason why I decided to do this show. I wanted to bring a lighter side to the drama and make people smile. Apparently, some of the viewers don't share in my same sense of humor -- particularly my "skiers are nerds" and "Americans don't know where Canada is" remarks. I was being silly. Of course I don't think all skiers are nerds and I know that most Americans do know where Canada is. This show is meant for entertainment.
As far as this week's episode goes, I don't see any reason for me to comment on all the drama. None of it had anything to do with me. We just filmed the reunion show which should air in a few weeks, and you can see where we all stand with one another.
On our Canadian adventure, I was relived when the ladies agreed to put all the drama aside and enjoy our last day of vacation. Snowmobiling was fun and a memory I will forever treasure. I loved that we could all be playful and just have a good time together.
Truthfully, I cannot figure Lydia out since the Part One Reunion. I did like the exchange between her and Heather in which she does not back down. All the other gals sort of "bow down" to Heather aka "Miss Holier Than Thou". I guess because of her husband's stature and their incredible wealth. No offense to Mr. Dubrow. I like him. Keep it up Lydia. Sorry for the way Ryan treated your mother at the party.
At first I didn't think I was gonna like you (Lydia), but you are a little firecracker and I really like you !! And the fact that you and your husband wouldn't let her be on the cover of your magazine was hilarious, she really thinks she is all that and a bag of expensive chips !!
I have watched these shows for a few years now and now I just have to turn it. You are all dispicable people, how do you act so badly, U are setting such a bad example for all your children. U are aLL MEAN, BULLIES, AND BACK STABBERS OH YEA AND GOD DO U ALL LIE. IT IS JUST BEYOUND MY COMPREHENTION THAT U TREAT PEOPLE THE WAY U DO. i WATCH THE LOOK ON YOUR HUSBANDS FACE AND i CAN TELL HOW MUCH YOU EMBARRAS HIM. U ARE JUST SO STUPID. I just get ill watching u people any more, has humanity come to this. There is not one of u I would like as a friend out of the whole franchise.
I think your as fake as they come. You like to cause problems and bring in the Hollier then now attitude. You started out well and ended like a Vicki. That isn't a compliment at all.
You are like a breath of fresh air to this show. You are so sweet and funny and I like your honesty. I can see where you get it, your mom seems like such a nice lady. I wish there were more of you and they'd get rid of Vicki and Heather. They are so obnoxious to watch. Your mother handled the "Ryan" anger malfunction with class and he made himself look like the complete jackass he is.
Good for you Lydia for putting Heather in her place. She thinks she deserves to be on the cover of your magazine? Whatever for? She is not famous for anything. Who is she anyway? Someone who married a plastic surgeon that she treats like dirt and who thinks she is an actress.
You just need to leave the show, because clearly you get offended easily and when you say you're over it keep beating the dead horse by constantly bringing it up...get over it!!
To be candid, when Lydia first surfaced, my prejudgment was: Great, another rich, spoiled individual who is going to flaunt her wealth. I was quickly proven wrong, Lydia seems to be genuinely sweet, sincere, loving, and kind. I also like that she is not a pushover. I respect and admire her. I would love to be fairy dusted by her mom, but since I am gay, that would be redundant!
it's funny you're defending your sense of humor to the world but when it comes back to you then you act all childish.
Honestly there is no difference between your sense of humor and that of Slade's.
I enjoy your sense of humor and calling people out on their backhanded compliments!! I like how you don't let Slade get away with his sarcastic remarks like buying you a hamburger or the dancing with the stars outfit!! BRAVO for speaking out in a classy way that lets him/them know what they said was not ok!
Once again you were the "douche" and not Slade. He commented on your outfit at Vickie's party (and I have to say it did look like dancing with the stars) and you made a nasty comment. I really don't see why you re-act the way with him. He is harmless and goofy. He is not mean, unlike you!
Sense of Humor??? I think not. I find your addition to the cast was useless... Here is my sense of Humor, please do not wear a ponytail. You look like a elf, those eyes and EARS....LOL
Slade has a different sense of humor from you -- which you just don't see.... you are a foolish woman....
You have your sense of humor, which you defend, but you crucify Slade for his. C'mon Lydia . . . play nice.
Lydia definitely needs to knock that little Pharisee off her shoulder. She's such a hypocrite. And Lydia, go read your Bible. Seems you have a really hard time forgiving people and accepting their apologies. You know, Jesus said he can't forgive you unless you forgive others. And just saying it doesn't cut it. You have to mean it. If you want people to know how important your faith is to you don't desicrate it on this show.
i think they should replace lydia with her pot smoking mom would be a interesting twist lol lydia needs to work on her problems at home before she takes on the drama mammas she doesnt know half of whats going on
Wow Lydia, when you first joined the show, it seemed like you just wanted everyone to get along, you seemed sweet and caring. What a difference a few weeks make. Now we see that you like to stir the pot just like the other "housewives". And how can you say you are such a christian, yet be so judgmental of Gretchen and Slade and Lauri? Really? God doesn't want us to judge, but you're sure good at it. It's so true how it doesn't take long for a person's true colors to come out. And why are you all of a sudden so concerned about your mom's pot smoking? Your children aren't newborns, so you can't say it's for them. Could it be because the world is seeing your life play out on our television each week and you don't approve of your mother? There you go judging again. Shame, shame. We can tell you're going to be buddy-buddy with Vicki and Tamra, the two biggest s__t-stirrers on the show. They are so narcissistic and fake and they are jealous of anyone prettier than they are. They are trying to be 20 with their ridiculous attire. Can't they see how ridiculous they look? (Especially at Vicki's "all about me" snow party.) Vicki yelled at Slade for things he has said about her, but she said horrific things about Slade for years until he finally had enough and retaliated - I don't blame him at all. Please Bravo, give us some real housewives to "entertain" us. Orange County used to be my favorite Housewives show, but sadly it's become my and my friends' least favorite. You all just use the show as a platform to be the center of attention because most of you can't accept that you are no longer 20-something. Really, I'm embarrassed for Vicki and Tamra. You know what they say about the company you keep? You hang with trash, you become trash. You might keep that in mind little preacher girl.
Again Lydia, you really need to watch past seasons of the show to understand how badly Gretchen, Slade and even Alexis have been bashed by Tamra and Vicki. Your alignment with those two mean women is baffling for someone who claims to be so religious. I'm not sure how you and Heather got on this show, you both do not fit in well at all. Heather is all about her money and fame while claiming not to care about either and you are claiming to be this religious chick that wants to mend all the riff with the women while really making things worse and chimming in with the mean gals.
Lydia, please stop grilling people for their personal information which, is no business or yours. You peck and peck them until you finally get it out of them and to me, that is just classless and rude. If they wanted you to know they would have told you without your have to grill them ad nauseous. And when you are not grilling them then you just let drop something about one of them so you can continue to stir the pot.. That is devious behavior and is not in line with your faith. Just remember, as our Lord says, you will reap what you sow.
You want to talk, a good talk, of all the peace and happiness, like some 60's Love child, yet YOU my friend are the very first to jump on the bandwagon. Not a fan! You took something that wasn't meant in no way shape or form to be an insult and you freakin ran with it! If you were truly trying to be a peace maker, you would butt the hell out and stop adding your goody 2 shoes comments of garbage!!
for the life of me ,I cannot explain why lydia a attractive young 33 year old women with a handsome husband and beautiful children would associate with these self obsessed older women . whats the real story?
Hi lydyia , I think you are the sweetest most loveable funny, housewife ever you remind me of myself you are a peace maker , im so glad you are on the show. you bring something special to the show and don't ever let anybody get to you about your size you are beautiful when slad said that and you stood up to him u explained that its not nice to make fun of peoples weight goo job anyways I just wanted to say I love all the love you bring to the show you see the good in people and that is special thanks for coming on the show I think all the other girls are great and yes they have faults like we all do but I think you and heather really balance these girls out keep being you sweetheart god bless you and your beautiful family take care teddy bear : )
Don't sweat the haters Lydia, you're awesome. Lol it's hilarious how many people are jumping on you about your America/Canada comment, seriously lighten up people.
I understand your humor. I just finished watching the Canada trip again and I really think your comment about giving Gretchen your first born child was insensitive. Gretchen should be pissed at you and all 3 of you deserve it too! You do put your two cents in too much when the situation isn't about you. You actually choose Vicki to pal around with? Give me a break! God has a way of putting a person in the same situation when they weren't understanding of another! It may take a week, month or even years, but I believe it will happen. You need to open your Bible more!
If none of the drama had anything to do with you then why are you always putting your two cents in and always trying to blame Gretchen for what was happening...you seem to have nasty things to say about Gretchen. Sounds like you are jealous of that girl and would rather be her enemy than friend...you just don't belong on this show, you don't fit in with any one on it except for maybe being jealous of Gretchen because all the housewives seem to be jealous of her as well.
I don't care for her. She doesn't fit in with these women and she is/will be a troublemaker. Her comment about Americans not knowing where anything is outside of America is rude. She is not a peacemaker. I lower the volume on my TV when she speaks.
Lydia is awesome! I love her personality and feel she's a breath of fresh air. I love how she lives her faith out and doesn't talk excessively about it. I love how her husband Doug treats her; he isn't controlling or demanding. He hasn't forced her to stay at home, cook, and clean. He supports her., it's cool. Love the trip to Whistler, that place is goregous like a winter wonderland! And Lydia's uncle is hot! Lydia, you rock! GOD bless
Too bad that you going overboard with Slade calling women names didn't cure him of calling Vicki the tupperware face.
Could not have said this better! Where do these women get off attacking people for the same thing that they do themselves. Seems they have put a target on Gretchen and Slade and everything they say or do is wrong. These women need to take a good look at themselves......a really good look!
So agree patiomama!!!!!!! Everyone forgets how much crud Slade took from Vicki and Tamra. Tamra really has some serious issues, she has to have one person to bash on each season, poor Gretchen is it this season.
you and heather are just nasty people. last night you cannot possibly look in the mirror and think yourself to be attractive. honey, stop making your eyes up so harsh, they are way too big as it is. I know you can't change the size but you can stop with the drastic eye makeup. you are at a Bible study of some sort, and you acted the way you did in Canada, and not to forget the awful way you acted in mexico. you have joined the mean girls vicki, tamra, alexia. so don't even try to impress us with your so called Bible study. you must have a different kind of Bible than I do.
I agree. Gretchen is the one who went to all the trouble of getting the party and trip to Mexico arranged. Then NASTY Vicki steps in and makes it all about her, Tamara and Lydia. How can you act like your s@@t doesn't stink and your a family person then get on a bar and show your stuff. You spoke mean about Gretchen just like the other 2 over aged wantabes. Shame on you.
If your such a Christian then stop being 2 faced about Gretchen talking about her with the other women u don't have a clue how Gretchen has been bullied!!!!!! And God don't like ugly don't know how they got u but they need too send u back.
First of all you call yourself a Christian but turn around & call Gretchen Malibu Barbie. How would you feel if someone called you buck-toothed Barbie? Then you try make a big deal out of what Slade said to Gretchen. He didn't whisper it & you should have turned the other cheek. I think you were just waiting for him to say something just a little bit off kilter so you could jump him. What he said last season during his stand up routine was not funny. So why bring that up this season. You were not a part of the show last year. I found it interesting that you had to tell everyone that watches this show just how rich you are. You're really rich. Like really rich. I think your Mom is so cool. Take some lessons from her. I don't feel that you are the fight fixer either. You are a strange person & I find your voice so irritating that I turn down the volume when you're talking. I have to wonder if you are who you say you are.
I am so happy that you bring your faith into the show along with your love of life. Keep it up Lydia!!!!
Lydia....seriously you need to stop saying "LIKE" Every other word out of your mouth is "LIKE" You sound like a stupid young teenager. Please stop saying LIKE!!!!
sitterpatsy I came to this blog just to see if anyone thought what I thought. ITS ANNOYING THE HECK OUT OF ME. she says LIKE every other word.
And by the way, your joke about Canada is so obviously self-decpreciating I don't see how anyone takes it as an insulting commentary on American's ignorance. Unless they have a unconcious inferior complex. Or you might have to reduce the humor level to the joking on others/cruel type a la Tamra's.
Lydia, I feel for you. You are bashed for your humor, for speaking out to Slade etc. Just to cheer you up, we love you and we think you are the most authentic one of them all. You can be direct without screaming like Vicki and Tamr or being cold and nasty like Heather. I am glad you are on this show.
