@BravoAndy. Andy Cohen. He's a dear pal, & used to follow, but I didnt understand twitter and by accident...oops ran out
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes. I unfollowed someone who was writing me inappropriate DM's. Drunk-tweeting a sober person? Bad call

Tough one. Gary Janetti, Paula Pell, Jenny Johnson...who am I forgetting?

That it's only weirdo's. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of crazies, but I've met so many smart, funny & witty people too.

I don't edit myself. I'm a smartass but I'm never mean. And sometimes I write funny crap.

To promote my book, GUTS (outinpaperback1/22). But I realized that was revolting (pleasebuyit) and decided to trash Leann Rimes instead
