“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough,” the mother of two said. Good line! But it sounded familiar...
A little Googling proved that the quote is attributed to actress Mae West. Known as a sex symbol and for her clever bon mots — she once said, “I used to be Snow White, but I drifted,” — she seems an unlikely idol for wholesome Lydia.
Alexis described her friend as a “Christian on steroids,” while Mae was literally in a movie called I’m No Angel.
We doubt we’ll be hearing Lydia say anything like another famous quote from the screen star: “I didn't discover curves; I only uncovered them.”
Is it no big deal that Lydia borrowed her line, or would you have preferred her to come up with something original?
