    • Jaclyn Smith: Oh, balance...that's not an easy thing! If you told me that somebody had a handle on it, I'd wonder. And when you're grieving the loss of a loved one, nothing can take the place of time. Even in the best of times, when you have kids and a career, something will always take a backseat. You have to be reasonable with yourself and not feel guilty when things aren't perfect.

    • (on presenting the reality show "Shear Genius")
      Jaclyn: It was rather daunting and frightening because it's not like just taking a character and creating it…and fine-tuning it. You are on the spot at all times. And you have to be very present. And it was challenging. But I must say the second time around it was easier and I had fun. And…I love the challenge of it, I really enjoyed it. I really didn't know what to expect…I just wanted to have fun. I wanted to be challenged. And believe me, the first season I was challenged.

    • (on whether or not she would let the winer of her show "Shear Genius" style her hair)
      Jaclyn: No. They're all very talented. But you know what? You get into your groove.

    • (on the importance, or not, of beauty)
      Jaclyn: In the beginning of my success, I was dazzled by the glamour because I was young. But it soon became superficial. After I had my children, it was the best time of my life and I can honestly say that from that point on, looks lost their importance. When you're on a show like Charlie's and you're being photographed for every magazine, it's easy to buy into it. But after having children, life becomes about living beyond yourself; about being bigger and better.

    • Jaclyn: Angels are like diamonds. They can't be made, you have to find them. Each one is unique.
