Q: You’ve done a lot of reality TV, how real is it?

A:There’s an audition process where they screen to find the most outgoing people that fit the bill, I’ve never been prodded (I don’t really need to, lol) but I have seen productions try to get anything out of people that just aren’t being interesting, I can’t blame them either.

Q:  Were you happy with the way you were portrayed on these shows?

A: The only show I hated seeing the footage for was one of my Millionaire Matchmaker episodes, they made me take ALL my make up off so Patty could give me a makeover with whatever product line she was pushing…but she didn’t even notice!!! I was on national TV in a cocktail dress and no make up!!! What a nightmare, she even had the balls to say that I was only an “8!” If I’m an 8 without make up I’ll take it. She’s generally horrible in person as well.

Q: What kind of day jobs have you had?

A: I done everything from being a pizza delivery girl, to a grocery bagger, even I worked at a Hot Topic and the local video game store.

Q:  What role do you play in Helen Keller had a Pit-Bull?

A:  I play a reality star, I did not have to audition, lol.

Q:  What attracted you to the role?

A:  I usually get recognized from being on one of the dozen reality shows I’ve done (Take Me Out, King of the Nerds, Mac Miller Show, Excused, Tough Love, etc) I assumed I could handle being a fake one.

Q:  Why do you think people watch reality TV?

A: Because it is interesting to watch real people, if you made a show about a post office, people would watch it….humans are naturally voyeuristic.

Q:  What was the biggest lie anyone in Hollywood ever told you?

A:  I once had a guy go on and on about how he was a producer, when he reluctantly gave me his business card…it was for custom party hats!!!!

Q:  You are in more projects that are in post production than any actor I have ever seen. When can we expect to see these films?

A:  Movies get stuck in post production black holes all the time, it’s one of the reasons that I did a lot of reality TV…to build up a fan base while my movie projects were getting worked on. Pain and Gain came out to theaters this week, Casting Couch just came out to Blockbuster, VHS-2 is playing at festivals and coming to theaters soon, A Blood Story and 7 Faces of Jack the Ripper should be out this fall, it’s kind of hard to keep track of them sometimes honestly, lol.

Q:  What kind of training have you had?

A:  Instead of paying to take classes I decided to just gain experience on set, even if the role was background or unpaid….it’s a great way to network and learn for free.

Q:  Who are some of your influences?

A:  Goldie Hawn is a huge influence, I’d love to play her daughter in something. She wasn’t afraid to be silly, which I think a lot of girls are. And John Cusack, because 80’s comedies shaped my life in ways they probably shouldn’t have.
