1 "I'm proof that surgery is not a magic potion. There are many ways to sabotage it. I didn't feel like myself, and I turned to alcohol because I couldn't turn to food anymore. Alcohol numbed me out for a while, then it got scary. I needed to get into recovery. It was a very private struggle, Rob (her husband) was pretty scared for me. I was always the one who was strong and in charge, and I let go. I've been clean and sober for almost two years. I stopped, I got healthy, and I got pregnant." (People, May 8, 2006)

4 "My mother gave me a spiritual perspective. She felt her life was miraculous. She came from a poor background, one pair of shoes, from a loving Jewish family. She was fourteen when she met my dad. She married him at sixteen, and she had me at twenty. She grew up very fast. She taught me about karma: If you do something nice for someone, it'll come back to you. It's the most powerful thing on Earth. That's how I live my life." (from a 1996 interview)
