I don't think you should block the halls off when you want to walk down the hall. It's important to stay normal, but people lose their heads in this business. They lose who they are as people. I knew Christina before her stuff came out and she's a great girl, but -- boom! -- she hit so fast and some people just can't handle it."

Very few abusers come to recognize, admit the gravity of their mistakes and then have the courage to go on to rectify things as he's done--particularly when they've got the entire world watching. That takes a LOT of work. I'm suprised and feel I must hand it to him."
