On Mondays episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, newest housewife Lydia Mclaughlin asked Heather Dubrow to let her photograph her home for Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine. Lydia owns the mag with her husband Doug. Heather wasn’t feeling it because she felt that she had to be on the cover. Once Lydia found out how Heather felt she told her husband who said only big stars get the cover.
On Heather’s Bravo blog she decided to call out Doug and Lydia for using Lisa for a cover claiming she’s not an international star. Heather wrote,
“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.
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.”
Lisa decided to correct Heather via twitter saying, “@HeatherDubrow true darling as you state I am not an “international superstar” I had the cover as I have written for the magazine from day 1.”
Heather responded, “Sorry love, meant no disrespect-I’m a big fan of yours. Just that they said it had to be someone of Movie star status.”
Lisa then said, “understand, if you look at magazine I am and always have been a contributor..clearly not a movie star tho..:)”
I don’t think Lisa needed to acknowledge what Heather said. Heather was just explaining that Lisa is also a real housewife. Thoughts on the situation? Should Heather have used Lisa as an example?
