I wanted to have a really good experience at the end all and just celebrate being myself again, without a tether or another person." "Nicole's outfit helped me remember my newfound freedom.
As a surprise for party-goers, Maupin wore a custom reproduction of Kidman's shirt.

"I feel complete relief!" Maupin concluded. Maupin concluded, "I feel rejuvenated."
