LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Lauri Peterson joins RHOC 2013, with an April 1 debut date announced to news this morning. Also joining is Lydia McLaughlin. Last year, LALATE exclusively reported that Lauri Peterson will be rejoining the show that she left several years ago. Moments ago, Bravo confirmed the same. Lauri will not be a full housewife, as Tamra Barney told LALATE earlier this month.
In a news statement today, Bravo confirms that Lauri Peterson will be among the housewives. “After leaving the show four seasons ago, original Housewife Lauri Peterson makes a surprising return, rekindling her friendship with some of the ladies and revealing shocking information that will rock one of the wives’ worlds.”
Lauri in fact finds herself in the season promo giving shocking revelations to Gretchen Rossi. Tamra exclaims “Lauri is back in the mix.” Vicki Gunvalson responds upset, “oh my god”. But what is Lauri’s shocking revelation? “I walked in and she was in a bed with another woman. And there with both in bed with another man.”
In December, LALATE explained how viewers may recognize Lydia McLaughlin. She heads Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine. And yet, she lives in Orange County. On RHOBH this season, fans watch a Lydia Stirling’s fashion shoot envisioned by Lisa Vanderpump for Brandi Glanville. Before the cast trip, Brandi does a stunning spread for Stirling’s magazine. RHOBH and RHOC, of course, are produced by the same company for Bravo. Lydia Stirling will go by “Lydia McLaughlin” on the show. The new season debuts April 1.
