On her favorite thing about being a woman:

 

Women have so many different facets; we are not one dimensional. Women can fix a car, change a lightbulb, fix a toilet, or do anything we set our minds to. We are mothers, wives, best friends, coworkers, and one day we will be a US President. What I love about women is that we don’t take no for an answer. We are strong mentally and can move mountains. We can really get stuff done. That’s why and how I am a mother, an actress, a wife and a talk-show host. Women are SMART. We have been given the gift of intuition and I think that is something to be proud of.

 

On the most important lesson she's learned from other women:

 

When women get knocked down, we don’t stay down. We get right back up with the lesson we learned from that experience. Then we teach our sisters that lesson. Women have a natural instinct to help others. We always want to encourage and learn. Another thing women love to do is prove you wrong. We can and will show you that we can do it!
