“Gay marriage is becoming legal now in so many places, and there's a controversy surrounding it, but at the end of the day, it does exist,” she said. “To keep pretending that it doesn't is really, I feel, is irresponsible because there are children that do grow up in these families… you want them to know that as long as they are surrounded by love -- that’s the most important thing.”
When it comes to a guest appearance on the show, she’s undecided. “I don’t know… I feel like this show stands alone.”
She also revealed a little bit about her own life, saying she often goes grocery shopping near her house. “My son loves to go to the supermarket. He says, ‘Mommy when are you going to take me to the supermarket?’”
She added, “I'm a normal person, see! There is no normal, that's the moral to this story, to this series, to everything.”
