Hey, dear. My name is ________.

Lisa

GB: That was the very first movie audition I had ever had, and I was green. I had no business going in there, and I went in for the Lisa character, the main character. Of course, I didn’t get it. Then John Landis called my modeling agency and said, “If she wants to get into acting, this would be a great way.” He offered the rose-bearer part, and he says, “That way she can learn she can be on set.” I was like, Yeah, let’s do it. I didn’t realize it was going to take so long. I thought, Oh, you know, a few days. We shot for like two months in New York, and then we shot like a couple of weeks in L.A.

GB: A friend of mine asked me if I wanted to be an extra in a commercial, and I didn’t even know what an extra was. I’m like, “What’s that?” And he goes, “It’s two days. It’s for an orange-juice commercial.” And I said, “Great, sign me up. Let’s do it.” By the end of the second day, there was this beautiful black girl who was one of the leads of this orange-juice commercial, and I went up to her and I said, “I want to do what you’re doing.” Honey, she was not there for me. [Laughs] It was my preparation for Housewives.GB: Right? It wasn’t like a psychiatrist. And I said, “Why is that important?” And she said, “Everything that happens in your life that is seen as traumatic — your mother leaving you at 6 years old, you going to a new place where you knew no one you knew — those are traumas that become a part of your body and may change some kind of makeup in you,” and all that. And I thought, Wow, I never had anybody say that. All these little things make us who we are, good and bad. (Source: www.thecut.com)
