Reviewer Brandon K. Thorpe wrote, "Theriault's [turmoil] belongs to a thinking woman. Even as she reflects this, she retains her grip on the quick-mindedness of the devoted social climber who rose from the mob to become best friends with a queen and who soon must find another place to alight. This is a lot to show on a face or in a voice, but she does it, and she never cracks for a second." [1]

In 2001 she announced her intention to wed the English born Canadian musician John Southworth. [2]
