The TV star was singled out as one of the African-American women Mayer called "gorgeous" in a controversial new Playboy magazine article - and the comment has made her year.
She tells Eonline.com, "I'm levitating. There's nothing that makes a 45-year-old mother of four feel better when she's dropping her kids off at school than to get a link on my iPhone that says John Mayer thinks I'm hot."
And her husband, former American football star Rodney Peete, appreciates the comment too.
The actress adds, "I don't know who is happier, me or my husband. John Mayer is part of the soundtrack of our everyday lives. We always have music playing in the house, and it's usually dad's mixes with John Mayer songs. Rodney has like a big giant bromance crush on John Mayer."
