Lydia McLaughlin and Her Mom Spill Family Secrets

What's the RHOC's star's most (embarassing) prized possession? Judy tells all.

The ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County all have some dirt on each other, but what about when it comes to the stars and their own families?

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

In an exclusive video, OC housewife Lydia McLaughlin and her mom Judy spill secrets about each other.

"My mom has this thing where she gets really into something, she breathes really heavy," Lydia reveals. "It's like she just ran a marathon."

Judy also opens up about Lydia's most prized possession: her baby blanket. "Lydia still sleeps with [it]!" she reveals. "I'm constantly begging her to let me wash it...I love that she loves her baby blanket, but just let me wash it!" But Lydia has no shame: "My husband won't even touch it!"

Judy's quirks don't stop at heavy breathing. "She sticks her tongue out when she's concentrating," Lydia says. And apparently it's genetic. "My son who's four does it and I don't even know where he got it from."

Some of Lydia's habits are all relative, too. "When she was a little girl, I had a little video called 'Little Miss Bossy,'" Judy shares. "Lydia would have her hands on her hips like this and she railroaded her little brother. He did everything she wanted. She was Little Miss Bossy. Stirling, he's Little Mister Bossy now! He gets his hands on his hips and organizes the entire crowd."

But according to Lydia, the family that's quirky together sticks together. "Family is thick! We have good genes!" Judy agrees: "Family is forever!"
