"When I looked down at my arm and saw she had had really scratched me and I felt it on my back, I just, you know, went over and slapped her back. It's not like my proudest moment but we were going through it ... We shut down production for a week after that. Everyone was really shook for a minute and just was like, 'This isn't like our type of show.' We want everyone to be comfortable and safe."
