Personal Quotes (2)

[on Are You There, Chelsea? (2012)] It's a dream come true to have someone else portray me. Because I've been living this life for a long time, and I'm over myself. It's a pleasure to play my sister because everything I've accused her of my whole life, I can now re-enact before her eyes. Her name isn't Sloane. We had to change her name for legal reasons so that my own family can't sue me.
Well, I don't live in the past like you, so I don't remember.
