A lot has been said about this recent historic election that with the passage of Prop. 2 (protection for farm animals) and of Prop. 8 (amending the state constitution to restrict marriage to a union between a man and a woman) that Californians care more about chickens than human beings. What do you think?
We’re all disappointed. On a good note, it was close. But it’s shocking and stunning to think this happened, given how progressive we think Californians are. It’s sad this issue is even on the ballot in this day and age.
Did you and Jen walk down the aisle before the election?
No. We’re domestic partners. We were legally advised not to rush to the altar, because once you get married, your domestic partnership goes out the window. With another child on the way, a health-care proxy is absolutely necessary to have. But I support everyone who has gotten married.
Did you ever fear that some of your adoring public might view you differently?
Jen and I have never hidden the fact that we’re together. Our kids are important to us, and we want them to know we’re proud to be their mothers. You have to stand up for who you are, because you are basically standing up for them. We’re just an all-American family living the all-American dream.
While she's upset over Prop. 8, Cat still has other reasons to be happy. She's opening her first restaurant CCQ (Cat's take on global BBQ) soon in Costa Mesa, Calif. and is expecting another son (Jen's and Cat's 3rd together) in April 2009.
