Bravoleb New Pet Alert! Lydia McLaughlin Got a Cat and Her Name Is *So* Regal

Hint: She's named after a princess...

If The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Lydia McLaughlin were a cat, she would definitely be pretty and fluffy. Her name would be Sparkle, and she would wear a diamond-encrusted rainbow collar. 

Of course, this means it only makes sense that Lydia would get a fluffy white cat IRL. Not only is her new addition absolutely beautiful, the kitty's name is ... Princess Diana. Awww.

We figure that with three human boys, Lydia has the right to name her cat the girliest thing possible. Perhaps, in the name, Lydia is also aligning herself with the deceased princess, given that they were both famous mothers of beautiful boys? 

The cat appears to be a Persian with a little smooshy face, and she goes perfectly with those tailored white jeans. 

Although Lydia won’t be appearing on The Real Housewives of Orange County for season 12 — she shared that her family took a vote, and decided that she needed a break from the drama — we still hope to see a lot of Princess Diana on Lydia’s Instagram feed. And perhaps on the pages of Nobleman magazine? The world needs a cat supermodel.
