“Well, if you’re just working on being happy…Happiness is a lot more sustainable. This can take into account being truly happy and not so happy, but being okay with yourself. It’s with you for life,” Melissa added.

“The best investment I’ve ever made in myself is to get better at myself. Ugly parts, weird parts, funny parts, you know, all of it.’

Melissa also said she tries “not to share private life,” but admitted that being in the public eye can be difficult.

“I think any adult that gets to a certain age will make it if they try,” she said

“Sometimes that is pushed to the public. I still don’t know how I feel about it. In fact, I really despise it. I despise it very much. I don’t like being forced to talk about things,” she said.

Melissa announced her split from bar owner Joe after almost four years of marriage.

“We were so happy to be walking together but the time has come for Joe and I to part ways and move on separately,” she wrote on Instagram at the time. ⁣⁣
