Briana's husband, Ryan, yelled at Lydia's mom during the Season 8 finale, and Lydia doesn't appreciate how Briana and Ryan have handled the situation. "I was upset with how Briana acted at the reunion," Lydia writes in her Bravo blog. "She said she didn't want to talk about 'it,' but then went on to insinuate that my mother was somehow responsible for 'mud and red wine' on the couch."
"Why wasn't this mysterious glass of red wine ever mentioned before, and where is this magical mud patch my mom supposedly walked through before resting on the couch?" Lydia asks. "My mother doesn't drink red wine, and Vicki's home has all cement in the back."
Lydia says she was expecting an apology from Briana or Ryan, but she has yet to get one. "Neither Briana nor Ryan have reached out to me or my mother since this all happened," Lydia continues. "They haven't apologized in the slightest, even after watching the scene when it aired on TV." Lydia hopes Ryan can eventually "grow from this because there is absolutely no excuse for his behavior."
Lydia also explains why she walked off the set of the reunion as Briana was making her accusations about Brooks. "It's one thing for one of the Housewives to call out another for something petty, but the drama went to a whole different level when Vicki's daughter starting talking about Brooks, a man her mother cares about," Lydia writes. "In no way am I defending Brooks' actions or taking sides, but Briana made some serious accusations about Brooks on a world stage and my heart broke for my friend Vicki."
"[Vicki] looked broken and so sad and while it was all happening, I was sitting there wondering, 'How did I get myself into such a bad situation?' and I decided I didn't have to be," Lydia adds. "So... I got up and left. I had a good cry, said a prayer and took a few deep breaths. When I felt composed I was able to rejoin the group."
We can't say we blame Lydia for wanting to escape from all of that drama!
