Why she might be annoying
She left high school without graduating, but talked her way into the University of Arkansas by claiming that her diploma must have been lost in the mail.

She said that she and her husband, actor Ray McKinnon, bonded over care packages from their Southern families: 'My mama sent me canned poke salad and turnip greens. His mother sent him pepper sauce.... It was a match made, right there.'
