I auditioned on my own. I tried to make a mark for myself without anybody's help, not even Mom's.
I basically became a cheerleader because I had a very strict mom. That was my way of being a bad girl.
I got to grow up with a mother who taught me to believe in me.
I guess I was a mom so late in life, my daughter was the greatest thing since sliced bread.
I may be the only mother in America who knows exactly what their child is up to all the time.
