But what does Lydia think of all the female attention her handsome hubby is getting from appearing on Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8?
“I’m into it,” she said enthusiastically during a recent media conference call. “He’s hot and he deserves it all. Someone tagged him as ‘Jesus Abs,’ which I thought was absolutely amazing. That’s basically his nickname with all of his friends. Whenever he walks into a room they all pretend to be doing pull-ups.”
It doesn’t have quite the same ring to it as “Jesus Jugs,” but we’ll give points for effort.
Lydia McLaughlin also gushed about how great Doug has been about her decision to join the cast of RHOC Season 8.
“My husband is super supportive and he just loves me,” Lydia said. “And I think he’s really proud.”
Even when things get rough with the other ladies, Lydia said Doug is incredibly understanding about what she goes through on the show.
“There has been a couple of times where we were filming and we were at a party, and he could hear me from across the party just saying, ‘Screw you, screw you,’” confessed Lydia. “He just knew like, ‘Oh gosh, there’s no turning back now. Lydia is in a mood.’ It’s been an interesting experience, but I think it’s been a good one. If anything, it’s brought us closer.”
