IT: How did you come up with the concept for The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition?
SS: I think the mother daughter dynamic is super relatable, even when your relationships are great, they are still tough. My mom was my bestie and I could have been on this show, I think its because you love so hard.
IT: The cast members have appeared on various reality shows before, do you think that experience prepared them for this show?
SS: No, the opposite actually, I think the cast was surprised at just how real and how much emotion was involved. I don't think they expected it to hit home as hard as it did.
IT: Which celebrity mother/daughter duo surprised you the most?
SS: I think it was a roller coaster ride for all and different therapy topics hit different duos harder.
IT: When you put that many reality stars and women in the same house there is bound to be drama. Was there one moment that just made you go "wow"?
SS: Four minutes in, when Heidi walked through the door and got into to it with Natalie, I never saw that coming.
IT: How did you choose this cast and how was it different from your other casts who have never done reality tv before?
SS: It was important to have a great mix of personalities who all had love for their family but were honest about having issues.
