What Up, Biatch?
Speaking in Her Own Words
"I am very clear that a part of my personality is what some people might call a bitch. And I am very comfortable with that. I accept it both as a personality asset and as a personality defect. And I think as I´ve gotten more mature - $500,000 worth of therapy later - I know when to be a bitch and I know when not to be a bitch. I make a conscious decision about when I´m gonna, you know, open up the bitch tap and let the water run. It can be really effective when I need it to. I´ve gotten through to people who are far more important than me by being, you know, a real bitch to their staff on the telephone."
