"This is a very personal experience that I think is important to share. This is an experience of recovery. I was in a very deep, dark slump, and I needed to find a way to get myself out of it.

I have always admired Shania Twain, and am sorry to hear what she has been going through. Great she is coming out of this dark time in her life and it is good that she will be doing a reality show.

Would like to wish her all the best for the future.

Forty five and looking better than ever.

In my opinion one of the most beautiful entertainers of all time.

I have had the priviledge of meeting her face to face, and she looks even better in person.
