Double Trouble

Only a week after finishing her recent stint on Galactica, Lawless took to the stage to compete in Fox TV's star-studded charity sing-off Celebrity Duets. It was a total departure from anything she had ever done before and one that has forever changed her life. "I was working up in Vancouver when a friend of mine's singing teacher called me and said, 'My friend at Fox just called me and said the network has been trying to get you on this new show called Celebrity Duets but your reps keep turning them down, They say you won't do reality TV.'

"My reps were telling the truth, but this time I made an exception and said, 'Are you kidding me? I definitely want to do it.' Subsequently, I had to turn around and fight a lot of people and say you know what? I as a Human being need to do this. Forget career move, forget how you think other people are going to perceive me. I cannot go to my deathbed knowing that I chickened out of an opportunity to sing with Smokey Robinson, which I did four times," enthuses Lawless.

"I have to tell you that performing on stage like that was such a drug, and since then I've been craving it. Something crazy happened to me, especially on the last night of the show, and I can't think about anything else. When i sang Tell Mama it was like, 'I've only just begun. I'm done being underestimated and this Mama is coming out of the kitchen,'" chuckles the actress.
"I'm so proud of what I did because it was something I did entirely on my own. Again, I had to fight for it, but it was worth it. I feel like I'm moving into a new phase of my life now and it's thrilling."
