We’ve been keeping a watchful eye on Lydia McLaughlin ever since she left The Real Housewives of Orange County last year. Right off the bat, the 33-year-old announced that she was expecting her third child — and now we know that it’ll be another boy, bringing her total number of sons up to three. But after she gets through this pregnancy, is there any chance she’d ever return to reality TV?

“There are aspects of the show that I miss,” Lydia told OK! Magazine in their June 25 issue. “Who knows what the future holds? That door definitely hasn’t closed.”

So it sounds like there’s always hope for Lydia to return to reality TV, though that doesn’t necessarily mean she’d ever make her way back to RHOC. We do think her time on the show has officially come to a close — but at least she made friends while she was there, right?

“I haven’t seen an episode,” Lydia said of the current season of RHOC. “I didn’t watch the show before I was on it, so I haven’t watched it after. I still see Gretchen [Rossi] and Alexis [Bellino], though. We’ve remained friends. Alexis and I were actually workout buddies before this pregnancy, and we’ve continued to go to classes together.”

Would you like to see Lydia return to reality TV? Are you surprised about who she still keeps in touch with from RHOC? Hit the comments and sound off!
