On why she thinks “Mom” is ending: “It was a shock [about the cancellation]. I have my own theories, but I’ve been told not to express them. But listen, eight years is a great long run for a show.”

Previously, Allison thought this was the main reason for the show ending.

On the importance of showing addiction on television: “You know, it’s one thing to be part of a show that entertains, which in and of itself is a wonderful thing. But to also have an impact on people who are in recovery, or people who have loved ones or family members who are going through it, to make recovery a more approachable option.”

If you missed it, here’s what Allison doesn’t regret not having kids.

On why she’s afraid of what’s next: “I hate change. It makes me … I get afraid – I always have – to let something go and not know what’s next. I think the biggest thing I need to learn how to say is no.”
