"I feel good. I think it's the freedom of not being responsible for someone's emotions or how they feel about certain things. And since I had the babies, my agent's been calling me for auditions...and you just know when it's your time to strike, when it's your time to do what you need to do. That whole feeling has me elated, like I'm giggling inside. My peace of mind, my quality of life, my home and my happiness mean everything to me. Those things mean more to me than living with the father of my kids and now I have that."
