It's been four seasons since Lydia McLaughlin had the pleasure of sitting down for a reunion. We last saw her on the couch back in Season 8 (clip above) — she later exited the series after that season for several seasons before emerging again this current season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. So, how is Lydia approaching choosing the perfect get-up for the Season 12 sit-down?
"You guys, it's pressure! Are you kidding me? This is the real deal! Like, I'm actually going to the mall to find my dress," she told E! News recently.
That's right: Lydia, who recently launched her Lydia M Jewelry line, won't be commissioning a stylist to help her find the perfect look. She'll be doing the picking all by herself. "I'm in my 30s. It's not prom, but it's my reunion dress. I will go to a department store like a normal human being and I will get a dress that I think is cute," she further explained. "And then I will get a dress that I will never wear again because it will have all those vibes of going to war with other women trying to take me down."
