‘I really think when she got on the show she didn’t really know how to interview me, and I think she didn’t know how to interview me. Because I felt like those first five minutes were very, almost like she felt compelled to ask me these questions she thought she should ask, ”she said.
Her staff eventually called me and said, “We’re so sorry because we didn’t know she was going to continue with that level of interrogation.” And that’s not even why they booked me, ”she said.
“They booked me because she was so interested in Seeking.com and I was the spokesperson for Seeking.com. And they said she would ask one or two questions about me on the HBO doc at the top of the interview. But that was it. I don’t really know what happened there. ‘
“It got really awkward because it was kind of, she just kept hammering on something and didn’t want to let it go,” she said. And you know, after 10 years of living with a stigma attached to you and something like that, everyone, you know, has got to like imagining you like that, like it’s really enough. I thought that was really a place, now we’re getting inappropriate here. ‘
