Lydia McLaughlin had a very unique upbringing — and not just because the Real Housewives of Orange County star is filthy rich. In Season 8, Episode 6, we meet her mother, who is quite a trip. A former (or current?) hippie who spent Lydia’s formative years smoking pot, Lydia’s mother has recently given up the drugs. Even so, she’s got quite the interesting take on life. Check out some quotes from and about Lydia’s marijuana-loving mama.
