During that season a lot was going on. My son had to go into a rehab; I was going through a really terrible custody battle, and awful divorce. You know how they let you pick one song... so I had picked 'Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. I talked to my dad, my mom had passed away right before, and I said this song is for you and mom.

Marie further explained:

And then, after we shot that, I was told that my dad died. And it was so hard to keep going. My father was a man that said you keep going. You don't let anything get you. It was the first time I stepped in and I stood at that door and I thought, I can't go in there... It was like all of a sudden my mom was gone; my dad was gone; I felt like an orphan.
