But just who is Doug McLaughlin? Aside from being easy on the eyes, Doug runs Skylab Media Group with Lydia and his brother, Marshall. The full-service creative agency has a reputation for turning out top-notch web design, online marketing, video production, and advertising campaigns. Doug and Lydia also run Skylab Modern Art, a gallery in Laguna Beach that offers works by contemporary artists from around the world.
As if this couple couldn’t get any busier, Doug and Lydia also co-founded and manage Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine, which will be celebrating its 5-year anniversary this year. One of the mag’s notable contributors? None other than Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump.
Lydia explained in Season 8, Episode 3 that she first met her husband at church; she immediately had a crush on the tall and dashing Doug. Both practicing Christians, Lydia and Doug now live in Dana Point with their two young sons, 4-year-old Stirling and 2-year-old Maverick.
Let’s hope we get to see more of Doug in Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8!
