Personal Quote:

I have played a couple of nice moms in my career [think Jennifer Grey's mom in the classic film Dirty Dancing] but, in my opinion, playing nice is a complete bore! The nastier they are the more fun they are [as in Howard Stern's mom in Private Parts, perhaps?]. See more »

Trivia:

At age 18 she made it to New York and landed her first job dancing in a year-round ballet company at Radio City Music Hall. See more »
