Personal Quote:

When you grow up on Long Island, you just want to get to the city. It's a big trek. You really want it because it's a different way of life. California is more laid back. In New York, there's more of a feeling of striving for perfection, which is admirable. I grew from being a Long Island girl, but at the same time I didn't forget my roots and I didn't forget the people around me. See more »

Mother of Olivia DeLaurentis and Nick DeLaurentis. See more »
