BRAVO’s Newest OC Housewife Boasts Impressive Media Background

How’s this for a mixed media message? Lydia McLaughlin, the newest co-star of BRAVO’s original franchise hit The Real Housewives of Orange County, co-owns quarterly magazine Beverly Hills Lifestyle magazine. And it was via that zip, 90210, that she came to the Season 8 opportunity rather than Dana Point’s 92624, where she lives with her husband and two young children.

Maybe this is old hat for Real Housewives fans, but it was news to us. There’s other fun info in Orange County Register reporter Richard Chang’s Q&A, including McLaughlin’s equally impressive Fourth Estate family tree:

Lydia is the granddaughter of Canadian media mogul Geoff Stirling, founder of Stirling Communications International. One of Stirling’s biggest properties is NTV in Newfoundland, North America’s first 24-hour TV station.

McLaughlin doesn’t appear until Episode Three of tonight’s debuting new season. In the Q&A, she also explains that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump is also one of her freelance employees. Read the full Q&A here.
