Take a sneak peek at Marcia Cross‘ upcoming interview on the Rachael Ray Show.

Marcia is getting ready to make the transition to life after ‘Desperate Housewives’ as her show comes to and end after 8 seasons. Helping to make that transition easier are her daughters with husband Tom Mahoney, twins Eden and Savannah, 4. The celebrity mom sat down with Rachael Ray in an episode airing on January 6, 2012 to talk about her girls and her career.

On the sacrifices she has made being a working actress and busy mom: “The thing I’ve really given up is friends. Because it’s either work or my children.”

Marcia loves that her twin daughters are individuals who have very different personalities: “I love it and from the moment I could, I said ‘wear what you want’ and one of them would never touch a dress and one of them is like ‘give me the fluffy sweater’. One does karate and the other does ballet. It’s amazing they get along so well, they’re so different.”

She shares her New Year’s resolution: “This is a very big year because the show’s ending. I have a very big birthday. So it’s a powerful year. I need to slow down a little and just cherish this time.”

What Marcia would tell her 16 year old self: “I would probably say what I’m still saying to myself which is ‘you’re ok’ because at 16 I was wracked with insecurity.”
