[Interviewer] Okay, what's your favorite birthday?
00:02
My favorite birthday was...
00:13
I remember one birthday, I think it was my 14th birthday.
00:17
I was on my show and I had moved out to LA.
00:22
It was me and my dad that had to move out to LA obviously,
00:25
because my mom was still working.
00:27
She worked two jobs out back in Oakland,
00:29
and we had a house, and a dog there.
00:31
It was hard to be without my mom for such a long time
00:33
because you got a dad who doesn't really know girl stuff,
00:36
you know what I mean, doesn't cook.
00:39
[Interviewer] (laughs)
00:40
We just take out, frozen food,
00:42
that was what we lived off of.
00:44
So then, on the morning of my birthday,
00:46
I wake up and I open my apartment door,
00:48
and all my family comes in, and then my mom walks in,
00:51
it was just great because I just missed them all so much.
00:54
You know when you move to a different area
00:56
and a different environment, that's hard.
00:57
So I was so happy to see my mom.
00:59
That, I think, was my favorite.
01:01
But now, we're all together,
01:03
and my mom comes with me to every video shoot.
01:05
In fact, she's out there somewhere with my puppies.
