Sep 06 2017

I want my kids to be loving, decent, compassionate human beings. But it's been a rollercoaster ride.feedback

Sep 06 2017

I had this funny notion that when your children get older, they learn to take care of themselves and it gets easier. But actually, the older they get, the more challenging it gets – because now they're becoming adults, and they really need guidance.feedback

Sep 06 2017 - World Happiness report

I used to be a basket case but now I live in Lisbon.feedback

Sep 06 2017

I had children, and I was looking at all these kids who were going to become orphans or already were.feedback

Sep 06 2017

I brought in these architects and everybody was doing everything pro bono, and I was designing a curriculum, designing the uniforms. I thought it was going to be this wonderful experience, and it ended up completely backfiring on me. There was a lot of dishonesty and people taking money and putting it in the wrong places. Sometimes it was spent wisely and everyone was transparent; other times it was like throwing my money out the window. I thought, I trusted these people.' There were so many disappointments.feedback

Sep 06 2017

I'm the biggest philanthropist in Malawi, but I was being treated like a criminal. It's crazy. But all my work in Malawi's been like that. People would say to me, Oh, you're so naïve – who do you think you are?' Then I would go, Maybe they're right. Who do I think I am?' After a couple days, I'd think, Everyone who's criticizing me: What are you doing to make the world a better place?' At the end of the day, you just have to get on with things, if you believe in what you're doing.feedback

Sep 06 2017

I thought, I'm the luckiest person in the world. I have so much, and I feel like I'm not doing enough to help people. The universe was listening. I knew that's where I was supposed to go.feedback

Sep 06 2017

I love when my kids are in Africa. Their selfless behavior, compared to the normal complaining in the privileged world we live in, is great to see. Helping people is like tattoos. Once you get a tattoo, you keep getting them. It's addicting. You see the difference you're making in one person's life, so what's the big deal if I help one more person and one more person? It's been a rollercoaster ride.feedback

Sep 06 2017 - Sex

I felt like there was another, deeper meaning and reason to be there – to, again, come to the service of people who have been marginalized by a disease that nobody wanted to talk about in Africa. The spread of HIV is so prevalent there because nobody is talking about sex or practicing safe sex – those things are taboo. It was just shocking: 'This is happening again?feedback

Sep 06 2017

At first I did too much and was spreading myself too thin, and I couldn't handle the workload; I was trying to find people who would be willing to be on the ground. But there was a lot of turnover – nobody wanted to commit for long periods of time. I couldn't do it all and take care of my family and do my job. So some of the projects that I worked on fell by the wayside because management was not willing to be accountable to me.feedback

Sep 06 2017 - Women

Every newspaper said I kidnapped him. In my mind, I was thinking, Wait a minute. I'm trying to save somebody's life. Why are you all s–-ing on me right now?' I did everything by the book. That was a real low point for me. I would cry myself to sleep.feedback

Sep 06 2017 - Sexism

The way I was treated – that sexist behavior – was ridiculous. I've had some pretty dark moments, but I'm a survivor. They don't have a clue, and that's a good thing. I'm just their mother.feedback

Aug 29 2017 - Trump Presidency

Is Barletta going to be a Trump surrogate? If so, I don't know how he pulls away.feedback

Aug 17 2017

It's a line I can use every day. Some things I use when I don't wear makeup and am not doing shows, and others are specifically good for having to apply makeup and be on stage under lights.…I developed it for me specifically, but it also feels universal. I mean, my children use it, my friends use it.feedback

Aug 10 2017

If she is against the Roman Catholic Church and she has a problem with them, I think she should talk about it.feedback

Jul 19 2017

It's so unequivocally frustrating to read that Whitney Houston has the music career I wish I had and Sharon Stone has the film career I'll never have.feedback

Jul 18 2017

The fact that I have attained celebrity status as a result of success in my career does not obviate my right to maintain my privacy, including with regard to highly personal items. I understand that my DNA could be extracted from a piece of my hair. It is outrageous and grossly offensive that my DNA could be auctioned for sale to the general public.feedback

Jul 17 2017

I dreamt that I opened up Billboard Magazine and my song had dropped to Number Three and Whitney Houston's had gone to Number One. And then I went down to my voice teacher's studio, where I take lessons, and I walked in, and she was humming Whitney Houston's song. And I was devastated. This is what I'm dreaming about!feedback

Jul 14 2017

It's so unequivocally frustrating to read that Whitney Houston has the music career I wish I had and Sharon Stone had the film career I'll never have. Not because I want to be these women because I'd rather die but they're so horribly mediocre and they're always being held up as paragons of virtue and some sort of measuring stick to humiliate me.feedback

Jul 14 2017

I've been in such a foul mood lately and I don't mean to be mean and unkind. I'm just so uncomfortable in my own skin right now. You see my frenzy of activity is like an anti-depressant and up until now I've always felt like I was unstoppable and could do whatever I liked. I never thought twice.feedback

Jul 14 2017

Now I have made so many people angry that I'm being punished and basically made to be quiet and sit in a corner while other less-interesting and exciting people are keeping the benefits of the roads I've paid.feedback

Jul 14 2017

I always thought that after last year's 365 days of blood sweat and tears, I could kick back and relax and have a baby and enjoy my success. But I have lost in everyday and now I can't stop fighting because I feel I've lost the fight and now I feel I have no career, no family, nothing permanent or tangible. My outlook on life is black black black – that's why I'm not good for you or anyone else right now. I have to regain my sense of power and my joy for living. Do you understand what I'm saying? My bitterness gathers like dust.feedback

Jul 12 2017 - Supreme Court

If you know me, you can imagine how I received this information. It's true, I am a freedom fighter. I am a feminist. I am a rebel heart. But I am also a compassionate and intelligent human being. And if you cannot give me a logical reason for the word 'no,' then I will not accept the word 'no.' I hired a team of lawyers, and I took my case to the supreme court, and it was not an easy battle.feedback

Jul 12 2017

I met Mercy soon after I met my son David, but they were living in different orphanages. David was in Mchinji in Home of Hope, and Mercy was here in Blantyre at Kondanani. Mercy was suffering from malaria, and David from pneumonia. And when I held each of them in my arms, I whispered in their ears, that I would look after them. And I promised them that they would grow up into strong and healthy adults.feedback

Jul 12 2017

The adoption laws in Malawi had not been reformed since the early '40s, and it had not occurred to anyone to change them yet. So my argument was that women have been raising children for centuries, on their own … not to mention the fact that I was doing just fine raising my own three children.feedback

Jul 11 2017

There are so many things I never imagined I will do. I never imagined one day I will build this kind of a hospital. Never give up on your dreams.feedback

Jul 11 2017

When you look into the eyes of children in need, wherever they may be, a human being wants to do anything and everything they can to help, and on my first visit to Malawi, I made a commitment that I would do just that. As we approach the opening of the Mercy James Institute for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care, I'd like to thank everyone who has joined me on this unbelievable journey. What started out as a dream for Malawi and her children has become a reality, and we couldn't have done it without your support.feedback

Jul 11 2017

We will ensure that not only will it be a world-class children's hospital, but also a superior center of learning. This is as much about healing as it is about empowerment.feedback
