Kathrine’s parents hail from different religious backgrounds, her father was a Catholic while her mother was a Lutheran. However the parents later converted to the Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Church, also known as the Mormon church. This was where Katherine grew her faith. She still admits to being a believer of Mormonism, but doesn’t practice her faith since it would contradict with her lifestyle.
Though she admitted not to like politics, she is however an avid Obama supporter. This makes her a possible Democrat. She also is a big LGBT supporter and animal rights activist which would also suggest this theory.
Since a child, Katherine has enjoyed acting and modeling. In her blog, she describes her hobbies as keeping pets and doing advocacy work with animals.
