How did you get where you are today? Basically just putting one foot in front of the other. Never being close minded and being open to trying new things. When I first started in this business I would never have predicted I would be co-hosting a radio show with Jamie Foxx. But because I didn't just stay in one box and try to just be a model-I was open to trying out radio and comedy and here I am working alongside an Oscar winner every week
Have you ever been fired? The only time I was fired was when I was on Celebrity Apprentice. It was odd and I almost wanted to laugh because I couldn't believe it. But I learned a lot from that experience and eventually Donald Trump hired me to host the Miss Universe Pageant... so it all worked out for me
What are your real passions? I love to laugh, I love to cook, I love to make people laugh. I love running and working out. But I love to inspire others and spread my optimistic spirit and love of life. I want to live my life with no regrets.
If you won the lotto what would you do? I would get some nice veneers! Lol-just kidding. I would probably blow some money in vegas on a craps table cause I just love the rush of rolling the dice (I know-I know I know) I would travel more than I already do. I want to take an alaskan cruise, buy my mother her dream house. Set up college funds for my 2 beautiful nieces Camile and Sofia. I would help out some hand picked people in need as well as randomly spread some joy to some homeless folks (something I already do) once I just approached an old lady and gave her $100 so she could buy som e shoes because her feet looked like they were in pain. It was heartbreaking. I would invest money to make sure my children will be well off. And of course I would step up my wardrobe since I NEVER buy expensive clothes. Oh and did I mention pay off all my bills and my 2 mortgages.
What do you hope to accomplish in the future? I want to produce television shows and movies. I have always wanted to do that and work more behind the scenes putting deals together. I want to produce and host this fun and edgy financial show I wrote a couple years ago. I want to get married and have a little family (no more than 2 kids.) And I would love to run in some masters (35 and over) meets.
What do you like to do in your personal life? I like to travel. I love to go to comedy clubs, I love to lay out by the beach and take in the sun and play around in the waves. Its no secret that I am a big kid at heart. I also love to cook turkey dinners and have get togethers at my house.
Please give us one shamless plug: I got a new reality show on VH1 that will start airing in March. It's with myself, Elise Neal and Melyssa Ford and I promise it won't be boring.
