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