‘‘When we were preparing to do it, she started to cry. She was like a little girl, she was terrified. This is another side of her that we, the public, doesn’t see. She is like all of us, she is a human being with fears. And once she was tied upside down, she hung 53 minutes upside down. And I said to her ‘Are you okay?’ and she said ‘Yes, I am very okay. I never felt so free.’’’

And the salad was like a really unhealthy salad; it was like fried chicken or something. So I said, ‘I’ll be right there.’ I got up, went to the bathroom, threw up the salad, did a line of coke went to the meeting. I was completely mental and had just been through so much.”
