I’m so excited for it. I know one more cast member who I can’t say anything about yet, but it’s so exciting for me because I’m really good friends with this person."
    • About her music career she says, "I recently left [my record label] Capitol Nashville because it was getting too difficult to travel to have to make my record and publicize my record. I was spending so much time in Nashville but also working on the show in LA. I didn’t think it was fair to anybody to do that. I felt like I needed to figure out where I needed to be and just stick to that. I definitely hope that music comes into my life in the future in some ways. So I guess its just a matter of finding if there’s a label that will be a good fit for me and a genre that will be the perfect fit for me. I want to make sure my feet are firmly planted before I take the next the step. But yeah, I definitely love making music and I’ll post covers and stuff in the meantime.

    • iThink They Kissed: "The dentist-chair scene was one of my favorites in the show's entire run. That scene is the primary reason this is one of my favorites. Also, good character development in the episode."
    • iWas a Pageant Girl: "The tap dance routine was great fun to learn and perform, plus we learned some interesting things about Sam's past. I love those revealing episodes because they lend more insight and depth to a character."
    • iGo to Japan: "Was such a fun episode. There were lots of stunts, funny bits, and special character moments. Plus, the outside scenes were really rainy and cold, so between takes we had chicken noodle soup and bundled up in blankets - a true bonding experience!"
