It's inspiring, I think, for women out there to see I'm a regular person. I am the every woman who's struggled with my weight.
I was a girl and became a woman. Something about having the freedom at home to be in the position I wanted, to have the people I wanted, was empowering.
For somebody famous, it's weird anyway to meet someone, because they have a preconceived notion of who you are.
I am wearing a size 28 Paige Jeans. Jeans don't lie, and I am just happy!
Normal birth to me should not be numb from the waist down and waiting for the doctor to tell you to push. There's a reason we feel it. There's a reason we need to feel it.
My body holds on to every part of every, you know, calorie that there is out there.
Being fat worked, and I think that was what was confusing for me for a long time in my career.
I hate the feeling of falling - I'll never jump from a plane - but I love a good roller coaster. Go figure!
It was a long time in the making, my divorce. One day became less special than the next, and pretty soon, we ceased all conversation. It is a sad day when you have nothing left to say.
I can't even plan tomorrow.
I had a really kind of yucky divorce and it was really challenging to get over that.
I never set out to be a role model for large women, I just do what I feel is right.
I am not a natural dancer.
I want to spark ideas and conversations and inspire people to take active roles in their communities, relationships and their well-being.
I do not want to die being known for doing baby mama DNA tests on my show.
What's the difference between tough love and acting like a jerk?
If I had been on 'Bowling for Dollars', I'd wind up owing them money.
Motherhood is the greatest thing and the hardest thing.
For me, being memorable is more important than winning.
I was this role model for heavy people. But the thing is, I never set out to be a role model at all, and I don't set out to be one now. I won't preach to anyone and tell them how to lose weight. I don't know any better than the next person.
I've lost 12 inches in three weeks. Every time I go for the costume fitting each week, it's smaller and smaller. I'm feeling great. I'm putting in the work. I'm getting a lot of sleep. Everything is on the backburner right now. 'Dancing' is my priority.
