"There is no way one person can sit down and go, 'But why did this happen to me?' Or, 'It was all going well, what the hell happened?' Or, 'No, this just can't be,' the denial of it."

"Running away from it is not going to help you find your answers. So we're facing it. And we're dealing," she says. "And Dev and I are best friends. That's never going to change."
