My younger sister had kids before I did and managed to earn a master’s degree while raising them as a single parent. Now she’s a brilliant second-grade teacher. I’m in awe of her ability to juggle everything and still be a great mother.
I’m a mom – I’m lucky if I get to shower in the morning. Luckily nail polish stays on my toes. I’ve been so bad on the upkeep though.
I’d been a wedding singer through college but after a few years of doing my best renditions of jazz standards to clinking glasses and the sound of forks on salad I thought ‘Oh God if this is all I do I’ll never be able to live with myself.’
I would love to play ‘Funny Girl’ or ‘Evita’ but I idolize the women who have played those parts. I don’t know if there needs to be another version of those shows.
I love working with a cast and a group of people every day which is different than recording because you’re usually pretty isolated and alone. They serve as a good balance for each other.
I always use my husband’s cocoa butter stuff. He has amazing skin!
Everybody thinks it’s going to be so glamorous so cool you’re on ‘Glee’ you know a hit show or whatever.
As a mom I don’t have much time for beauty.
For me ‘Rent’ was all about coming out of myself finding out who I was learning the power I could have as a performer.
My biggest project right now is trying to be a really great mom and learning how to balance family and career. I’m just trying to spend as much time with my family as I can.
