“But that’s sort of the beauty of this group. If you shy away from conversation, you can’t learn anything from it,” Kung-Minkoff continued.
Although Kung-Minkoff had her moments with the ladies, she said that she also saw resolve to a lot of the issues they faced during filming.
“Did I butt heads? For sure. But do I feel like there’s resolve and that you can come out to the other side? For sure. It’s a big learning lesson for all of us,” she explained.
