A New York Times reviewer raved that Griffith was "a sensational Roxie, possibly the most convincing I have seen." Since then, Griffith has starred on the WB sitcom Twins (2005-2006) and appeared on the popular FX drama Nip/Tuck (2010).
After several tumultuous marriages and repeated struggles with alcoholism and drug addiction, Griffith is finally in a happy, stable marriage, living a healthy lifestyle,
and once again enjoying consistent acting work. And she hopes her story of addiction and recovery can serve as an inspiration to others. "The change for anyone who's been addicted to any mind-altering substances like alcohol or drugs is so great," she says. "And it's so great being straight. Now it's like ... it gets better all the time. [Recovery] was really a wonderful experience for me. It changed my life. It's hard. But I encourage everybody who has a problem to do it."
