On Sunday night's episode of My Kitchen Rules, things got extremely heated at the table when Lyn admitted she thought Karolina was a 'trans' when she first met her, a label that Karolina took as a slur.
Proud mum Lisa tells New Idea what happened behind the scenes.
'That was really unfortunate. I think that Lyn just really put her foot in her mouth and she was devastated,' she admitted of the incident.
'She said it off camera, she said it privately to Karolina. It probably didn't need to go any further but Karolina wanted it to be brought up at the table so it was on camera,' she added.
According to Lisa, 'Karolina was happy to tackle it publicly when Lyn said it privately'.
'It was a terrible faux pas on Lyn's behalf and I felt really bad for Lyn but I felt really proud of Karolina for forgiving her,' she continued.
At the table Karolina first admitted that she was 'friggin upset' when Lyn said it, but after Lyn apologised multiple times all was forgiven.
'Karolina did forgive her and they went on to have some happy times. I was sad about that because Lyn is a great person and she was there for all the right reasons and she's not a nasty, mean, vindictive person,' she added.
