When Lydia McLaughlin was offered the chance to join the eighth season of The Real Housewives of Orange County she leapt at the chance.
But now, just halfway through her maiden season, she admits that she may have been a bit naïve when she climbed aboard the reality TV ranks.
"It is more difficult than I thought it would be!" she told PEOPLE while attending Corolle's Adopt-a-Doll event in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Before the explosive new season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres June 2 on Bravo, Andy Cohen is sitting down with the show's feuding stars to discuss a number of topics, including how close relationships were fractured.
Among them? Melissa Gorga's song, "On Display."
Apparently, her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice thinks the song – which Gorga wrote and recorded during her first season on the show – may be about her.
"So many people told me that," Teresa tells Cohen in a clip of Watch What Happens Live: NJ Housewives Tell All, airing Sunday (8 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
The issue is in the lyrics about being followed by paparazzi.

Porsha Stewart may want to watch her back.
Since Kim Zolciak's mid-season departure from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe Leakes is the only remaining original star of Bravo's hit show.
Does that give her any sway over who's in and who's out when it comes to a sixth season? Maybe it does and maybe it doesn't, but one thing is for sure: NeNe is not afraid to let her opinions be known.

He said yes!
Slade Smiley is engaged to his longtime girlfriend and Real Housewives of Orange County costar, Gretchen Rossi, 34, after she recently proposed, PEOPLE has confirmed.
The popping of the question will be televised on Bravo's hit show.
"They're really happy about getting married," a source tells PEOPLE of the pair. "Gretchen always does everything out of the box, so no one is too surprised she was the one who proposed. She really wants kids with Slade, so that was a big motivator."

Is Kim Zolciak going to have another baby?
In an exclusive first look at the new season of her Bravo show Don't Be Tardy, the former Atlanta Housewife visits a doctor with her husband Kroy Biermann.
"We'd like a little girl," says Kim, who has two sons with Kroy and two daughters from a previous relationship.
"How do we guarantee that?" Kroy asks.
The doctor's response – not to mention Kim's antics this season, which premieres with back-to-back episodes on April 16 (9 p.m. ET) – are likely to make viewers laugh, but there is also plenty of drama, including dealing with her parents' decision to demand visitation with their grandchildren.

It's time for another The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion – but this time, one important cast member will be missing.
Host Andy Cohen starts off the reunion by announcing Maloof's departure from the reality series, "Today we are missing one of the Housewives who has been with us since the beginning. Adrienne Maloof has decided not to participate today," he explains. (Watch the video below.)
"This season was hard on Adrienne – as you know all know – a secret about her family was revealed by Brandi [Glanville] and from that moment on, Adrienne refused to speak directly about it ... Not only is she absent tonight, but she won't be on the show next season," Cohen continues.

Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes have nothing to worry about when it comes to the next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Rimes will not be on the show.
"That's all a farce," Glanville said of the rumor that's caught traction over the last several days. "She wouldn't do it. They didn't offer it. She squashed it on Twitter. My people would never do that to me. It wouldn't happen."
Glanville and Rimes have clashed publicly since 2009 when the country star had an affair with Glanville's then-husband, Eddie Cibrian – whom Rimes later married and is now living happily ever after.
