2. “I will tell you what I can’t abide — and I think the Internet has really created a space for it — women criticizing other women and mothers criticizing other mothers.”

6. “I know I live a charmed, beautiful life and nobody wants to hear a celebrity whine. The last thing I want to do is complain; I love what I do and I know every job comes with a downside.”
