Worst flubbed line: I blanked out in the middle of "I Can Hear The Bells" once; I literally just went to la la land and when I came back I heard myself singing but could not remember where, so I started making things up that rhymed with the last thing I said which I thought was bells....so I said.....bla bla bla....smells........
Who have you played on "Law & Order"? Which edition? HAHAHAHAHA. I have been in for them like six times, all different editions and they never hire me. I mean I'm not sure what that says about me, but that question made me laugh.

Cats or dogs? I have a silky terrier named "Chloe" after my fave designer

Worst job you ever had: I trained to work at a posh downtown restaurant for one day as a waitress. The owner was a nightmare and was very rude and degrading so I quit before I began!
What leading-lady role have you been dying to play? Wow, I mean I thought Hairspray would be it for me as far as dream roles go, but I am open to anything. My dream would be a role that was written for me that features a comedic and improvisational side.
