‘But I want my voice back, you know, I’ll do anything.

‘I also wanted to tell you, I want your pity. Right, you know in the movies, when they say, “I don’t want your pity, don’t feel sorry for me!”

‘Hell yeah, I’ll take it, I’ll take your mercy. I will take your feelings of regret. I’m lovin ‘it. Bring it.’

On Instagram, Kathy received supportive comments from five-time Grammy nominee Carnie Wilson, Oscar winner Tatum O’Neal, Emmy nominee Mo Collins and The Peripheral star Alexandra Billings.
