More: Speaking of happy, you are teaming up with The Hub, which is a really fun network to watch.
MJH: Yeah, and they air Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. At Christmastime they’ll even air a Sabrina marathon. Not only am I helping the network launch the new season of My Little Pony, but I also get to color in the world’s largest coloring book with my boys.    

More: You talked about your onetime hit Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. If you were really a witch and could grant yourself a wish, what would it be?
MJH: How about reversing Hurricane Sandy? I’ll also wish that my boys grow up to be loving, caring, smart and thoughtful people who are dedicated to society.

More: After the Sabrina series ended, did you have to reinvent yourself since you were on the path to becoming an adult?
MJH: Believe it or not, I was 20 when I started filming Sabrina. I was an adult playing a kid again. My reinvention came after Sabrina ended. I was 27 years old and in the process of getting married. After the show wrapped, my day-to-day activity was gone and I needed to find things to do with my time.

More: Which were?
MJH: I did a lot of charity work, spent time with my husband and became a mom. I can say, when I did Dancing with the Stars that was a bit of a reinvention, because I was trying to be more of a glamorous woman. I felt it was time to wear heels, lipstick and pretty clothes. I never learned how to style myself because I always had people doing it for me. In fact, I am still trying to figure out how to put on eyeliner.
