“I’m giving up the music business and I’m going to become a professional sitcom actress! Just kidding, of course, but I did have a blast while I was there,” she joked. 

The Oklahoma native showed her gratitude for the cast and crew for making her feel “right at home.” 

“I got to hang out with the whole cast, dress up like a flight attendant, play a cavewoman and had a baby pig poop on me…that’s right…jealous,” she wrote. “I’m just glad I grew up on a farm because I think I was the only one who knew how to hold and wasn’t afraid of a little piglet!”
