Funniest/craziest thing that has happened on set?
Tichina Arnold. My answer is a person instead of an incident, but that is because she is the funniest and the source of almost every laugh on set.
If you want to spoil me rotten?
Nice restaurants, handbags, and weekend roadtrips.
Your thoughts on the whole social media entertainment thing and how its changing the industry?
Entertainers are pretty much expected to maintain some sort of social media presence now, both because people like being able to have greater access to entertainers in this age over-sharing, and because the people hiring us like knowing we have at least some sort of built-in platform to advertise our shows/movies on. So I feel a certain amount of pressure to post on a fairly regular basis, even though my social media presence wouldn’t be that different if I wasn’t in entertainment. I would probably just post less pictures of myself (like why do we like looking at people’s faces so much?). Social media also makes word of mouth that much more powerful, because everyone has a platform to be their own critic. If people are tweeting that show or movie is good or bad, it can greatly affect how successful that show or movie will be.
Known by your friends as the __________ one? And why?
Realistic. If you’ve got an issue and you come to me I won’t necessarily tell you want you want to hear, but I will tell you what I really think the situation is.In what way are you a “Diva” in real life? Usually I’m too laid back and wish I was more of a diva. But I hate being cold. I WILL complain at least once in cold weather.

What is your favorite thing about playing “former child star Kibby Ainsley” on DD?
She’s a sexually fluid girl who struggles with sobriety, so her storylines have plenty of ups and downs. And she’s fun to play because she’s basically a party in human form.
Whats your summer 2017 style motto?
Wear more color and prints! Dress like it’s a vacation even if it’s not!
When you are not working you enjoy?
Tearing up a brunch, maybe a mimosa or two, then going home to watch Netflix. I also try to go to school at Columbia in New York when I’m not working. Less fun than mimosas but better for my brain.
What can we look forward to next?
Daytime Divas on Monday nights at 10/9c on VH1!
