CelebHomes: In the finale as we watch Maggie put aside her feelings to help Ben and Jessie get back together, did you feel like Maggie was self-sabotaging herself?

RR: No, it’s so much more complicated than that. In a way it’s easier for her to self-sacrifice than to say ‘No, I believe this, and I want this for myself.’ Many women have done that. I know I’ve done that, where I’ve been like, ‘Oh well, I’ll let this boundary go because I know I can handle it and I don’t want to hurt this other person even if it’s a boundary that I really need to keep for myself.’ It’s clear that she feels she wants to do the right things, even if she doesn’t feel it is in her best interests.

CelebHomes: Would you want to see the future like Maggie?

RR:Absolute no. It’s an invitation to disaster.

I’ve learned a lot from Maggie—she doesn’t always see the whole picture. Although she thinks she is seeing one thing, she may not see all the details.

CelebHomes: Maggie is a futurist. But if she could go back in time to live a day in someone’s life, who and why would they choose?

RR: I’d love to be Catherine the Great. It was an amazing woman. It was amazing to be able to get down under foreign conditions and still manage your s—-t.
