My mornings go by so fast I forget breakfast. Lunch – that's turned out to be my biggest meal. I like tuna fish with low-fat mayonnaise and celery, egg whites and garlic. It's delish.
Women often come up not knowing how to make decisions. We get wishy-washy. We become great wage earners – breadwinners – but we don't know how to control empires.
My goal is to give young girls confidence in this world so they can be more like men in the decision-making process.
If you're being attacked by something on the outside, which I feel a lot being in show business, you just have to dial it back and breathe and know that you are protected.
When I got '227' and broke out from the rest of the cast, I became a workaholic, and I was very lonely.
I love DKNY. I love her sweaters because I can take them and just wear nothing underneath and just wrap them.
Sitcoms are making a comeback, but you've got to have a little quirkiness in there now.
I'll use men's shirts, I love men's shirts, but you have to get them altered because they're shaped differently and I like them to be fitting.
Right now I am trying to be in a place of calm, a place where I can chill out and then handle the chaos of life better. You don't just get it overnight; you have to work at it. It's a daily struggle.
Red, electric blue – the only color I don't wear is green, which I still don't wear. I wear certain color greens, but I have such yellow skin so I always like to wear bold colors.
I hate to say it, but the older you get, you really do have to cut down on the amount you eat. Less food and less portions.
