Busy is completely and authentically herself—her real power is authenticity. It’s vital to her job as an actress, author and host of her own talk show, and most importantly, as a mom to 2 young girls.

In her real life and to everyone who knows and loves her on social media, Busy is honest and REAL:

“I am hopeful that by my attempting and succeeding most days of being as most myself as I can be, that that’s empowering to someone else.”

“I’m all over the map in the way that I dress. Eclectic, but I’m kind of fancy, too. I worked real hard to be fancy!”

“Part of the impetus behind wanting to be a real role model is that I have two small girls, and I don’t ever want them to have that struggle of feeling like they’re not good enough. We talk a lot about strength in our household, and being strong is something that’s really important to me.”
