I don't think that they know fully what's happening with Miss Match so therefore I don't know how many more if any, if the show's even gonna keep going.
I have insecurities about being a good mom, or balancing my career with motherhood. All of those are very strong, very real obstacles. My motto is just unconsciously, and maybe now consciously because I'm saying it, is sink or swim. I'm a fighter.
I'm a mixed breed and hope to live longer because of it.
When I was first starting out, and I was less established, I was really concerned about being typecast.

Television is my home. It's a special breed of person that can do nine months on and three months off, with 22 episodes of one-hour shows. It's very hard work. It can be a grind. It's not a grind for me. I relish in that.
You know, nothing is ever happily-ever-after. Ever.
