Because of supportive fan mail, she continued appearing in all of the last 13 episodes of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer's" 7th and final season.

Personal Quotes (1)

It was years ago, and we still talk. His name is Efren Ramirez. And if you go to his IMDb page and see the picture with him and Paris Hilton-from a year or so ago. He's wearing a necklace and on the necklace is his wedding ring. We've been separated for about three years. Actually I was married to him, but I got an annulment. But I still stayed with him 5 years after that. He just took me to Vegas and I just couldn't say no and then afterwards I was like, 'Holy Shit, what did I do?' and it's not that I didn't love him, but it was a secret! Nobody knew we were married! I had to be home by 11, he dropped me off at home and here I am married.
