- “We can best be described this way: Hillary is Lisa Bonet and Diedre is Claire Huxtable.”Mother and daughter Deidre and Hillary have done quite a bit of traveling together. When Deidre was a flight attendant, she sometimes pulled Hillary out of school and took her on trips. When they travel, Hillary's pet peeve is when Deidre combs her hair and gets it all over the bathroom floor. But "she is so much fun to be around," Hillary adds, "We laugh like crazy people when we are together."
Deidre and Hillary decided to team up for THE AMAZING RACE because, in Hillary's words, "Who wouldn't want two SENSATIONAL girls to make the world laugh?" She adds, "I think this experience will help my mom see life through my eyes and understand me more as a friend and not only as a daughter."
