1. FOR SOME REASON IF WE HEAR 100 PRAISES AND ONE CRITICISM, WE FOCUS ON THAT ONE HURTFUL THING.
2. I WANT SOMEONE WHO CAN KEEP ME ON MY TOES, HAS A GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR AND A GOOD HEART.
3. FOR SOME REASON I ONLY CRAVE FRUIT WHEN I’M IN A TROPICAL PLACE – IF IT’S REALLY HOT IN THE SUMMER OR IF I GO TO A TROPICAL ISLAND FOR WORK. BUT OTHERWISE I REALLY DON’T CRAVE IT.
4. BEING FLIRTY IS A WAY OF LETTING A GUY KNOW YOU’RE INTERESTED WITHOUT MAKING A FOOL OUT OF YOURSELF.
5. AM I STILL INTERESTED IN A GUY’S BODY? NOW THAT I HAVE GROWN UP, I AM MUCH MORE OF A ‘VIBE’ KIND OF PERSON! IF A MAN HAS A GOOD BODY, THAT IS AN ADDED PLUS.
6. MY MOM WAS AMAZING. SHE BELIEVED IN ME AND WE WERE BEST FRIENDS.
7. WHEN PEOPLE ASSUME THAT YOU’RE ONE WAY AND YOU’RE NOT THAT WAY AT ALL, IT’S HARD.
8. I LOVE A MAN WHO HAS LIVED A FULL LIFE AND LIVED ON THE EDGE.
9. DINNER IS A GREAT FIRST DATE. DON’T BELIEVE THAT STUFF ABOUT GIRLS NOT WANTING TO EAT ON A FIRST DATE – SHARING A ROMANTIC MEAL IS SO SEXY.
10. IF YOU ARE THINKING EVERY DAY, ‘I HAVE TO GET TO THE GYM’ AND ‘I HAVE TO LOSE THIS WEIGHT,’ AND THAT’S ALL YOU THINK ABOUT AND YOU OBSESS OVER IT, IT’S NOT HEALTHY.
11. IT’S ALWAYS GREAT TO HAVE A GREAT MASCARA THAT MAKES YOUR LASHES LOOK THICK AND FULL. THAT’S A DEFINITE MUST HAVE.
12. I THINK IT’S SEXY WHEN SOMEONE MAKES A STATEMENT THAT SAYS, ‘THIS IS WHO I AM. THIS IS WHAT I THINK IS SEXY.’
13. IF YOU DON’T HAVE A VALENTINE, HANG OUT WITH YOUR GIRLFRIENDS, DON’T GO LOOKING FOR SOMEONE. WHEN IT’S RIGHT, THEY’LL COME TO YOU.
14. NO MATTER WHERE I’VE BEEN OVERSEAS, THE FOOD STINKS, EXCEPT IN ITALY.
15. I KNOW I’M NOT PERFECT.
16. PEOPLE ARE SURPRISED AT HOW DOWN-TO-EARTH I AM. I LIKE TO STAY HOME ON FRIDAY NIGHTS AND LISTEN TO ‘THE ART OF HAPPINESS’ BY THE DALAI LAMA.
17. I LOVE TO GO GET FIREWORKS, EVEN THOUGH SOME OF THEM ARE ILLEGAL.
18. I LOVE KIDS. I JUST LOVE KIDS. THEY PUT YOU IN A GOOD MOOD AND THEY ARE SO FULL OF LIFE.
19. I GUESS I’VE ALWAYS BEEN ATTRACTED TO PEOPLE WHO STAND OUT AS INDIVIDUALS – PEOPLE WHO ARE ADVENTUROUS AND TAKE CHANCES.
20. I HAVE A CONSTANT SWEET TOOTH, SO I LIKE ANYTHING FROM THE BAKERY, LIKE CUPCAKES, COOKIES.
21. LAUGHING MAKES EVERYTHING EASIER.
22. I’M MORE ATTRACTED TO A STRONGER MAN RATHER THAN A FEMININE MAN. SOMEONE WHO WOULD JUST THROW ME DOWN AND TAKE CONTROL. I LOVE FEELING HELPLESS. I DEFINITELY LIKE A MAN WHO IS AGGRESSIVE AND CONFIDENT.
23. WHEN ANYTHING BAD HAPPENS, MY INSECURITIES COME FLOODING OUT.
24. GUYS CAN GET BORED EASILY.
25. AS A DANCER, I LOVE MUSIC THAT MAKES ME WANT TO MOVE.
26. AT 18, I WAS ATTRACTED TO BAD BOYS.
27. I DON’T FIND ANY PRESIDENTS ALL THAT SEXY. THEY’RE NOT VERY ROCK’N’ROLL.
28. I LIKE EVERYTHING LOUD, OVER THE TOP, DRAMATIC.
29. I LOVE DOING COMEDY – I GET A LAUGH OUT OF IT, IT’S NOT SO SERIOUS.
30. I WENT TO THE PERFORMING ARTS SCHOOL AND STUDIED CLASSICAL BALLET. THAT ATTITUDE IS SOMETHING THAT’S PUT INTO YOUR HEAD. YOU ARE NEVER THIN ENOUGH.
31. I’VE CHOSEN JOBS THAT WERE SEXY BECAUSE I WANTED TO DO THEM.
32. ONE OF THE BIG MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT ME IS THAT I WALK AROUND IN MINI-SKIRTS AND HIGH HEELS TWENTY-FOUR SEVEN AND GO TO THE GYM IN HEELS.
33. OTHER PEOPLE’S PERSPECTIVE, JUST SEEING THE SEXY IMAGE, MIGHT BE THAT I TAKE MY SEXUALITY VERY SERIOUSLY. BUT I REALLY DON’T. I LIKE BEING SEXY. IT’S FUN, AND I HAVE HAD A NICE LITTLE CAREER OFF IT.
