It feels like I'm in a swimming pool, and I am constantly trying to stay above water. Sometimes I feel like I'm slipping, and you try to come up for air, and that's how it is when looking for the next role.
It is a challenge trying not to give in to pleasing other people.
I'm not cheap, I'm thrifty.
I'm always fighting with profanity and Christian comedy. I'm telling you, it's always a fight. Because my father said to me, he said, 'Well, Kym, I feel like comics and people that use profanity, you have a lack of vocabulary, actually, a whole lot.'
I love Cleveland, and I love going back home. That's where my family is. That's where my roots are.

I've always had an entourage. Even when I was a little kid, I had a lot of little children following around me.
