And Garfield says it’s flattering how people know about their home lives:
“They’ll ask Sherry how her kids are and me, about my cat because that was on the show, so I think that has really made us much more likeable. People don’t hate us nearly as much as they used to.”
Kuznits: “So they hate you less?”

Garfield says the show makes PPA employees more relatable. You can tune into a new season of the show, this fall.
