I would say, as a human being, I would tell myself to tell Daren Kagasoff to stop buying sneakers because he has a problem, and then as an actor performing on Secret Life, I don’t know. It’s been a really kind of a wonderful journey, and I’d really gotten to know and bond with all my cast mates, and everybody is great and I love them all, and you know, just kind of a large one big happy family. I’ve really no advice I’d give myself except prepare for all the emotional drama that’s coming. I’m obsessed with GREY'S ANATOMY and DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, and like most ABC shows and soapy, oh gosh, I watch a lot of Spanish soap operas, that’s my guilty pleasure. ” She’s like, “I’m not sure yet.” So she kept beating around the bush saying she wasn’t sure, she was sure, and then I read the script, and then I was, “Oh, my gosh.” I just started crying when I read it because I had been carrying this, you know it’s fake, but I’ve been seeing myself with a pregnant belly for, I don’t know how many months, and then all of a sudden it’s gone, and there’s no result coming from it. So you feel lucky to be able to portray that, and give those people, who had the unfortunate experience, give them some representation, make them feel like they’re thought of, too.WE LOVE SOAPS TV: Do each of you have a soapy, sort of guilty pleasure television show that you like to watch on a regular basis?
