Jon Stewart said it pretty well when he was on The Daily Show talking about Caitlyn Jenner. You have to be really strong, but I think all women should get behind each other. I think the best way to succeed in this business is if we all come together and we don't fight each other, and we don't compete with each other. Yes, there's competition in this business, but we all need to be a strong, united front. I think there's enough room for all of us and beauty has a wide scope; there's room for everybody, and there's room for every shape and size. The more we start saying that and the more we start proving that, the better it's going to be for everyone.

Well said, Jessie. Well said.
