I do not assume that folks ought to be up in arms about the truth that she waits tables as a result of I feel {that a} waitress, identical to anybody else, has a really powerful job.”

She concluded: “I feel that remark would possibly’ve been taken slightly out of context in phrases and made into a nasty remark as a result of I do not essentially assume Sandy meant it in a malicious approach.

The show does comply with an precise yacht, we really are out at sea, it is not only a Hollywood manufacturing. We are all working.
