I was cued four times.

People always ask me, how do you do everything you do?

I love spaghetti and meatballs...I eat a lot.

I was very happy here with my job in daytime television as Erica Kane. And being able to see my children, and all of that has worked for me.

I really always felt that I was going to be an actress. I had a lot of confidence in the fact that I would do well from a very early age. I didn't know how tough the business is.

My parents were both from extremely different backgrounds. My father's Italian, my mother was of Swedish descent. They're both first-generation Americans.

You know what my greatest personal stumbling block is? My shyness.

All right then. I guess it is.

It was such a thrill to see my photo on a mobile billboard. What a super promotional tool!
