In addition to her church — which boasts Tom Cruise, Lisa Marie Presley, and Kirstie Alley amongst its famous members — Preston adds that people all over the entire world offered up their condolences and support, and although they were strangers, it also helped to bring her out of the darkness of her grief. "People were so beautiful — so, so extraordinary from all over the world. Everybody grieves in their own way. I felt at times like I was drowning. It felt like a sea of wet blankets. And then I just peeled them off, layer by layer, so that I can now say, 'I want to live. I love life. My life is beautiful and amazing.' … Nobody should have to lose a child. It's unfathomable. But I'm here to say that you can get through it. You can live again. You can want to live again."

"The Conversation" took place months ago, before Preston's husband of 20 years was accused of sexual battery by four different men who gave him massages. Two of the men filed $2 million lawsuits against the "Grease" star, although one of the plaintiff's stories has since been called into question since Travolta was not in Los Angeles at the time he said the assault occurred. The second man is preparing to battle Travolta in court, according to his attorney. "It looks like [Travolta's attorney Marty Singer] wants one hell of a fight," said the man's lawyer, Okorie Okorocha, "and that is what he'll get from me."
