Lydia Explains her Discomfort with Drag

When The Real Housewives of Orange County crew stepped out in drag earlier this season, Lydia McLaughlin participated in the, um, ladies' night but also wasn't shy about expressing her reservations when it came to her faith and drag (clip above). When Lydia appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Monday, she clarified what she meant by her statement.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

"I felt like I was misunderstood a little when I'm quoted and I say that drag queens aren't in the Bible. What I meant by that was I didn't know a verse that meant like 'Oh, I can't go and participate in this,'" she explained. "I wasn't meaning like 'Drag queens aren't in the bible, so therefore they're somehow excluded from God's promises or something."

With that all cleared up, Lydia then shared how she ended up with her drag king look. You can check out the back story in the video above. And relive a highlight from that memorable group outing, below.
