Exclusive: Lydia McLaughlin Reveals Why Lisa Vanderpump Was On The Cover Of Beverly Hills Lifestyle & Heather Dubrow Wasn’t

Lydia McLaughlin was introduced on The Real Housewives of Orange County when she and her husband, Doug, wanted to feature Heather Dubrow’s home in their magazine, Beverly Hills Lifestyle. As we saw on the show, Heather and Terry Dubrow only wanted to do the feature with the magazine if they got the cover, and in a conference call with press, Monday, Lydia exclusively, explains why Heather did not get chosen for the cover, but Lisa Vanderpump did.

“There’s a team of people that decide what goes into the magazine and who goes on the cover and who gets featured and how many pages they get and things like that. And there’s a lot that goes into it and anyone that has worked with a magazine knows this. Lisa Vanderpump has worked with our magazine from day one. She’s been a contributor of ours and been a huge supporter. And she has basically writes an article in every issue for the last five years,” Lydia explained.

“So for us it was a celebration. She has been involved with our magazine before she was even on the Real Housewives franchise. So it was a no-brainer and a celebration when she got famous and she got on the show. We wanted to support her. She’s a family member for our magazine. So of course it was a no-brainer to put her on the cover. Now about a year and a half later when we had approached Heather I approached her as a home feature. We were looking for about a four-page spread for an architectural feature. We were not looking for someone to be on the cover. And once we approach people and asked them for features we get requested all the time as you guys would know being reporters or publicists. You’re always asking for the next thing. So of course I didn’t think it was odd of Heather to ask for the cover at all. It just didn’t make sense for us. Like you had just mentioned we had already had a Real Housewives on the cover and Heather hadn’t been involved with our magazine before. So we didn’t want to become like a Real Housewives magazine. So that was why we decided to say, “No,” and she decided to pass. But then actually her husband and her approached us and they’re in this issue as an architectural feature. And it’s a beautiful story about their home. And she got some lovely pictures and it was really fun to work with her. So it actually ended up as a happily-ever-after type of story,” Lydia revealed.

    I’m so distracted by this woman’s teef! Does anyone know if they’re hers? Or did some dentist perform this disaster. I wanna get veneers on my teeth, but this is holding me back; that and about $10k!

      I agree! The teeth are distracting and her voice and mannerisms are annoying. UGH!! With all her money — why didn’t she get her teeth fixed?? On the other hand, now you can see — money does buy anything. Now I get it — THAT’s why she is on the show.

    It’s still hypocritical to me. Heather has been an actress for years. There should’ve been no reason for her to be on the cover. But Heather was happy with the issue so it doesn’t really matter.

      Heather is a phony — I’ll bet she is the next one on the divorce list. God help her poor husband.

        Amen to that !!

    Binky, I agree with you this womans teeth keeps me from taking her suerus, with all the money these people have why don’t she them fixed?
    As for as Lisa and Ken’s house being on the cover it should not matter to this other housewife it is not her magize maybe they do not have as much as they want people to believe and if she does than let her and herr husband and they can be on the cover all the time.. Lady get real there other than you and your house not being on a cover of a magize that most of use have never heard of..

      I can totally see why Lisa and Ken’s house would be on the cover. They are beautiful people and have made a definitive mark in Beverly Hills. Plus they have a pretty fine home. Heather does have a beautiful house as well.. well, kind of stuffy but in a very over done kind of way. At any rate, who has ever heard of Heather??

    I have to laugh after reading this boring and ranting explanation about who, what, when, where, why who is and who is not on the cover of their magazine. I recall Lydia claimed her IQ is at a “Genius” level. Gad, I’d hate to see stupid, then.

    WHO HAS A NAME LIKE BINKY. THAT IS DISTRACTING ENOUGH. WHY IS SO IMPORTANT FOR EVERY ONE TO BE SO PERFECT LOOKING. THAT IS NOT REAL LIFE. BINKY, I WILL BET THAT SOME ONE CAN LOOK AT YOU AND FIND SOMETHING TO MAKE FUN OF EVEN IF IT ISNT JUST YOUR NAME. LYDIA IS FINE. LEAVE HER ALONE. MOST OF US DO NOT EXPECT PERFECTION….

    • barbie May 4, 2013 at 8:44 PM

      It’s just that she looks like Bucky Beaver… or is that Binky Beaver?? BTW — I will be that Binky is not her real name any more than Barbie is mine. HellOOO!!

      • barbie May 4, 2013 at 8:45 PM

        Make that, I will bet that Binky is not her real name, etc etc
