Is There Any Way Shannon Beador and Lydia McLaughlin Can Be Friends?

Will this #RHOC beef ever be squashed?

By Laura Rosenfeld
Can Lydia & Shannon Be Friends?

There's always drama among The Real Housewives of Orange County ladies but nothing this season compares to the conflict Shannon Beador and Lydia McLaughlin have experienced with one another. The two didn't get off to a great start — to put it mildly — when they first met at the birthday party for Tamra Judge's granddaughter Ava. After that, it seemed as though Shannon and Lydia butt heads every time they got together. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Bravo Thursday, July 11 at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

But is there anything — anything at all — that could happen to make these two set aside their differences and actually become — dare we say it — friends? That's the burning question that one caller posed to Lydia when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Monday night. So is the so-called "friendship whisperer" optimistic about fixing her own relationship with Shannon? Find out in the video, above.


Then, see what's in store for Lydia, Shannon, and the rest of the RHOC gang this season, below.
