"Also, I gotta say again, Whoopi was very instrumental in that, because we had some really good conversations I needed to have that were illuminating for me and eye-opening for me."

The actress also spoke about being excited about her future.

"I'm like, 'All right, Lord, if you allowed it, what's next, Dad?'" she further shared. "It's exciting for me low-key. I feel like I get to start my life over in some ways and have a second chance at whatever's supposed to be next."

"I'm really embracing that, excited about it. I don't know what to expect, and that's kind of amazing."
