"I’m just now doing post-[production] on that episode, and she’s great. She completely went there. Not a stitch of makeup. She’s just a frumpy waitress. She really got it and embraced what the show was. I’m thrilled. And I knew she was a big fan of the show, and we had this role that opened up. It was sort of a one-off and I knew we’d be able to get her in and out in a day. And the timing worked for her. She was thrilled."

kitchykitchen So fun cooking for the lovely @msleamichele last night! I hope you had a fabulous birthday & had a slice of cake for breakfast

life is too short to be serious

"I am a very outspoken person, and if something makes me uncomfortable, you will know that it makes me uncomfortable, but that’s as far as it goes. I can assure you that [the diva rumors] aren’t real. It’s super-frustrating sometimes, and I used to fight back, but now I feel like, You can think what you want about me — that’s OK. I have the most amazing fans, friends, and family members who have stood by me, and I know that my cast and crew really enjoy working with me. That’s all that matters."

"I think if you show up and you work hard and you’re straightforward, you can always create your own opportunities. I hope I’m right."
