She told a story about her inspiration to get on television began that one day, “I figured it out at 15 years old. I was at home on the sofa watching Phil Donahue, a show I routinely watched. It dawned on me. Wait a second, he’s asking questions and they’re telling interesting stories. Is that a job?”
