Though Michele greatly appreciates her passionate fanbase, she admits that the stream of comments that flood her page when she posts a picture with Paetz can be emotionally exhausting.
“This industry is really tough, and the only way to get through is to create a solid unit, and that’s really what we have been since Day One.
