The sun's not shining as bright today in Orange County!
Real Housewives of Orange County pixie Lydia McLaughlin has announced that she will NOT return for season 9.
"It's bittersweets. I compare it to breaking up with a boyfriend you know you're not going to end up with — it's hard, but overall you know you're doing the right thing."

After firing divas Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino, this means that only queen bees Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney and Heather Dubrow are left.

Who will Bravo pick to juice up Orange County's already ripe, drama-filled show??!
