She also reveals in her interview that her grandkids have been her anchor.

“A lot of people say, ‘Well, they're not your grandchildren. They’re Peter's grandchildren,’" she says. "But they don't feel that way, and neither do I. Nothing has given me more comfort than those kids calling me Grandma Stephanie.”
