And our show was canceled immediately...It wasn't no break with us. It was like, seven hours after the news broke, canceled! I'm not mad because they canceled our show -- that's not what I'm mad about. But I believe it's a double standard, that they're gonna cancel our show because of rumors and stuff, but they're not gonna cancel their show. And he did a whole lot more horrendous stuff than I would've ever thought about with my children. That's just crazy." She adds, "In the long run, I look at it this way. If you're gonna take away one family's income 'cause of speculation and rumors, and I didn't even touch or molest anybody...and you're gonna blackball me and take away from my children's future, but you're not gonna take away from their family? Come on, now, get your priorities straight."
