*Disclaimer: When laughing with Rich backstage one night, Teresa was informed by him that this quote from him, which she had been using in her obviously kickass and well-vetted bio for years, had nothing to do with her brilliant artistry and amazing dialect work, but all to do with the shape of her nose. She’s still choosing to use this quote, and enjoys speaking of herself in third person.
