still_unforgettableWendy: Natalie, you’ve been a big sister in my head, and I’ve explained what that is, I went through a thing, and you were already over your thing with drugs in a lot of ways, and, I don’t know, we come from similar families regarding much is expected and there’s no room for mistakes especially being black in this country and trying to move ahead and do things. Your mother and your father put down such a thing for you and you messed it up with drugs.

Natalie: A couple of times.

Wendy: But you got it together.

Natalie: Yeah I think that it’s a path, unfortunately when you‘re in this business, everything that you do is magnified and you can’t be wrong, there’s so very little grace that being in this business gives you. You have to find you own way. You have to get tough. You have to get a tough skin but underneath you still have to have that spirit, of passion of love and being able to say to yourself ‘I’m still ok.’ I’m trying hard and I’m going to get there one of these days, but ‘I’m ok.’
