When asked if she was surprised that her mom has become such a personality on the show, Lydia responded, "I had no doubt that the world would fall in love [with her]."
In fact, Lydia has a funny story about how her mom even overshadowed her. "The first time I met Andy Cohen, he was like, 'Oh my gosh I've seen the first four episodes and I love your mom!' I'm like, 'Hi, nice to meet you.'"
You might be surprised that those were his first words to the new housewife, but Lydia isn't super surprised. "She's always been like that. I'm so proud to be her daughter. Everywhere we go, she's always leaving behind a trail of fairy dust."
