On NBC's 'Today Show,' Christy said she literally just had change in her banking account (81 cents!) when she went for the initial audition...she moved into her own place 'with my own washer and dryer!'

She also reveals that in season 2, we'll see closure after (father) Jack has passed away - or we might summize - was killed in a car wreck.
