Lydia told the podcast, Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef, of how real Real Housewives really is: “I mean, I think that my, I honestly, with the whole experience, I think that I assumed that it was fake or like the girls are being dramatic and then once the camera goes off, everyone has a glass of wine together and are actually friends. But that is the exact opposite.
“I would say it’s just very much worse. It’s worse to behind the scenes than it is. Yeah. They like hate, they hate each other, even more almost behind cameras. And we’ll pretend to be friends on camera sometime. Not pretend, but like you’re using each other and they’re, it’s a, it’s a very much a game of chess and that was hard for me in what is your storyline?”
Lydia was a housewife on season 8 and then again on season 12.

Lydia went on of the mentality of the housewives cast: “Well it’s also everyone wants to be liked. And so everyone wants to have their story there a point of view because in life like nobody is the bad guy in their own world. Your, you know, you’re starting in your own movie where your, this year are the good guy.
“So it’s interesting when you get put and you’re not telling this story and the way that you saw it, it was very different. But it’s, it’s weird because you’re almost seeing something from another point of view and you’re like, wow, I didn’t know all that was happening or cause it in it’s a very real, I would say it was way more real than I expected it to be.”

Last month Lydia told Bravo’s The Daily Dish podcast of RHOC’s casting shakeup: “I am here to spill the tea.”
She said of Tamra and Vicki Gunvelson not returning to RHOC: “I felt like it was a long time coming, honestly. I think it’s a good switch-up. I’m excited to see what the cast does.”
Lydia went on: “I love Vicki, and I ran into her a couple times, and I think it’s good for her. I think she’s ready to leave. She has a successful relationship, she has an engagement. She has a daughter, she’s a grandmother. I think that she has a lot going on.

Lydia went on: “I do know that Tamra…she’s not letting it go. She’s still talking about it.
“I just feel bad for her, it’s kind of like, OK, you need to move on and do something else. She’s talking about the next season, and I think it’s a little…it sounds pathetic.”
The mom-of-three continued of her relationships with her former castmembers: “Shannon [Storms Beador] and Tamra both have blocked me, so I don’t know what’s going on in their lives.
“I don’t know, maybe they’ve unblocked me now. I haven’t checked lately.”
