First and probably the least exciting is Lydia McLaughlin. The 35-year-old mother of three previously appeared on the eighth season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Reportedly, she opted out of Season 9 to have a baby. Now that her youngest is a toddler, she’s back in the fold. Filming for Season 12 began this week and rumor has it, she’ll be a part of it. Personally, I’d rather have Alexis Bellino, Gretchen Rossi or Lizzie Rovsek back instead.
Next up is Danielle Staub. The controversial 54-year-old reality star left The Real Housewives of New Jersey after Season 2. Not by her own choice apparently. The rest of the cast joined forces to have her ousted. For years, Staub has teased a comeback but Season 8 might just be it. E! News reports everyone’s favorite prostitution whore is making her return. It’s not certain if she’ll be an official Housewife, friend of a Housewife or simply a guest. Whatever capacity, I can’t wait to see what crazy she has in store this time around.
Lastly, Kim Zolciak-Biermann is making her triumphant return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Bravo officially confirmed this when the network released the mid-season trailer for RHOA this week. The 38-year-old is an OG member of the RHOA franchise. She left after Season 5 to helm her spin-off show, Don’t Be Tardy. Based on the preview, Kim hasn’t lost her flair for the dramatics. She’s seen getting into it with Kenya Moore. #TEAMKIM
