What does the part in bold mean here?

Me: When it was my turn to read out loud, the teacher looked stunned. I was asked to take a series of test the next day. After what she called my parents and told them I was a genius with an IQ of 180.

My step mum: Aw, Wow! I guess that explains why she is so ugly.

There is a common idea that very intelligent people are not usually pretty or handsome. It isn't true, but what often happens is that people who find themselves to be unattractive spend more time studying and learning rather then socializing, and therefore are seen as more intelligent. Her parents see her IQ as compensation for not being pretty.
