On her fitness plan:
“When I was dancing on “Dancing With The Stars,” I was 102 pounds and all muscle. Once I stopped, I gained 20 pounds in a month! I want to be healthy, I want to have kids and I want to live a long time. So, I”m eating well, working out and embracing my butt, curvy legs and hops. Besides, if you”re too thin, you look older.”

On her beauty secrets:
“If you want to do something fun, pick one thing, like shoes or a bag. I used to match everything. Like, I”d wear gold shoes, a gold belt, a gold skirt, a gold headband, all the way down to gold eyeshadow. I don”t do that anymore.”

On Ryan”s support:
“From day one, I”ve said that I”m here to accomplish my goals whether somebody is in my life or not. I”d never want anybody to be in control of what I do. He knows that”s big with me.”
