Danniella shared on her son’s Firecast podcast, “I just closed that other door like it never happened. I just expect everyone to catch up with me.

“I can’t expect this just because I’m clear that everyone will suddenly forget the pain I caused. I have to realize that it might take other people a little longer to come because I hurt people.

Now, the actress has insisted that she is dedicated to making sure that she is a good mother and that she always consults with her daughter and son on her big decisions in life.
