“The book is about communicating and relating to other people, and it’s called IF I UNDERSTOOD YOU, WOULD I HAVE THIS LOOK ON MY FACE? And that’s really what it’s about, it’s about the value of relating. I think the basis of communicating is when you understand what’s going on in the head of the person you’re talking to or communicating with, whether you’re talking to them in person or in a written piece of material. You’ve got to know what they’re going through—otherwise, you’re just spraying information at them.”

“When I was a young actor in New York, I premiered in a show called Sly Fox, which starred the great George C. Scott. I had three lines in the show.

“My book is called There is No F*cking Secret, Lessons from a Badass Bitch, and what inspired me to write this book is that so many people have decided who they think I am, and tell me who they think I am, and come to me all the time and ask me what my secret is. And, I want the world to see who I really am, and the only way I could do that is by writing this book.”
