When she was on the popular sitcom, her looks were always in the news. However, the producers did not push her to change her looks or make her lose weight. Right before filming the series, she had twins. She revealed, “They [publications] said, for instance, that the producers made me keep the weight on, and I was just like, ‘How are they making me keep the weight on? Do they come to my house and force feed me?'”
She continued, “What was great was that the producers were like, ‘We don’t care. I was like, ‘I am working hard to try to lose the weight,’ and they were like, ‘We don’t care, look like whatever you like, you look real, we don’t care.'”
