“I am excited,” she said of the decision. “I'm a fan of the show, and I never saw myself [as] fancy enough to be one of the housewives but I thought, Why not? I've been through so much in my life and I've been very private about a lot of it and I thought, I'm in a really good place and that would be fun to be a part of the show.”
She also added that she admires the show’s stars, whom she'll be joining, for their honesty and for supporting each other over the years.
“I think they're a great group of strong women and they have strong opinions and I love that," she noted. "I think, at the end of the day, they're very supportive of each other. No matter what kind of little conflict might go on, they might fight a little bit like sisters, but they still support each other and I love that.”
