Is this yet another case of the Second Season Syndrome?
The Real Housewives of Orange County franchise is supposed to be a superficial bunch of light, bubbly, overly botoxed fake boobed fake tanned money obsessed wannabe morons who live in an Orange Bubble That’s how we like them. Perhaps this is why Bravo TV didn’t cast Heather Dubrow when she first tried?
Perhaps the former D-list actress who has lived on her husbands’ dime (Plastic surgeon Dr.Terry Dubrow) until her first RHOC check last year should have done her homework on Lydia Stirling McLaughlin and Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine before mouthing off and showing her jealousy of Lisa Vanderpump ‘s cover shoot for the magazine.
From her Bravo blog:
I had never heard of Lydia’s magazine, however I didn’t look down my nose at it. My friend Kacey told me that the McLaughlins were good people. Thats why I took the meeting. Terry and I had no interest in having our house photographed for a magazine.
Yeah, we believe you Heather. She goes on to say:
We asked for the cover because we decided that it would help our local advertising. An inside story would just be a vanity piece that we didn’t need at the time. Also, Lisa Vanderpump from RHOBH had recently been on the cover. Sorry, Doug, I love Lisa, but she doesn’t match with your explanation of the cover being an international superstar.
Then she goes on about other things, yada, yada, yada, but comes back to the subject:
I have to admit, I was surprised to see Lydia laughing about us asking for the cover. I’ve been on covers before and Terry and I have been on covers together. No hurt feelings on our end if they didn’t want us…But it did hurt my feelings to hear her speak that way about me when I thought we had started a nice friendship.
It turns out Lydia is an heir to the Stirling publishing fortune, and Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine is sponsored by:
Villa Blanca (owned by, guess who?)
Not to mention the fact that the home the Dubrows wanted to grace the cover of the magazine was sold in December.
Old saying: Get in where you fit in.
Serve up the onion rings with the lobster, Heather. You’re in Orange County!
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Monday nights on Bravo TV.
