The reality TV mom hit Good Morning America for her first sit-down interview since being released from federal prison.

Jessica hit The Daily Show on Monday night with a response that was right on point:
As a black person, you walk around everyday constantly reminded that you are black. We’re more likely to get paid less, we’re more likely to get sent to prison, and we’re more likely to win a dance competition,” Williams said, joking, “What? It’s not all bad.”
