Early life

Lydia Schiavello was born on October 23, 1970 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Her parents moved to Australia from Italy and Lydia was born few years later. She grew up with her parents and her brother John. Lydia attended Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.

She got a degree in Interior Design and decided to pursue a career right after that.

Career and reality TV

After she finished college, Lydia decided to pursue a career in interior design. Finding the right job wasn’t easy and she first found a job as a hostess at a hotel. While she was working there she met Andrew Norbury and fell in love with the wealthy architect.

Being married to Andrew opened her new possibilities and job offers. After marriage she started several businesses, including her own blog, interior design projects and a cooking career. She loves preparing meals and writing about fine cuisine, so she made it a good way to earn money.

She is still running her blog where she writes about lifestyle, cooking and fashion. In 2014 she got an offer to appear on a new reality TV show called The Real Housewives of Melbourne. To expand her career and to get her talent in the spotlight, Lydia gladly accepted the offer and has been a regular member of the cast since the beginning.

The show was the first of its kind filmed in Australia, and it received good reviews. Most of Lydia’s income comes from her show salary and her blog.

She is also a big philanthropist and together with her husband she often gives back a lot to the community. She is involved in Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, and often helps charity events held for this Institute.

Because of her appearance on the show, her career and business are expanding more than ever and we will see Lydia in the next season most definitely.

Personal life

Lydia married her husband Andrew soon after finishing college, and the couple has three children together, two boys and one girl. They all live in Malvern together with Andrew’s three children from his past marriage. In the last year, Lydia was in the media spotlight because of her possible affair with Shane Warne.

Lydia denied all of the rumors and proved the media wrong.  The family owns a greyhound, and she and her husband are known as animal lovers. Lydia enjoys cooking and that is no wonder due to her Italian ancestry.

The couple also owns a beautiful holiday home in Thredbo and a private plane. It seems as though this happy family has everything they only dreamed of.
