Susan has been embroiled in a lawsuit with the actor's children over his estate

The interview comes after Susan settled her lawsuit against Robin’s three children in early October. Zachary, Zelda and Cody Williams disagreed with the late star’s wife over the division of the Oscar winner’s money, property and personal items after his tragic death.Although his will stated that his wife-of-three years would receive their California home and expenses to maintain it, she claimed the children weren’t giving her enough to cover what she needed. In addition she requested to keep other items such as his dinner suit from their wedding and other "knick-knacks", but was happy that the children received his Oscar and film memorabilia.
