On raising twins Max and Emme:
“It takes a village – you do really learn what that means when you have kids. It’s a juggling act, just like any single mom. They just started sachool, three days a week. I have to travel without them here and there, so it’s really important they’re surrounded by family when I’m not there. They come first, though. I like to wake up with them. I like to put them to bed. That’s how we do it so they feel loved, happy and what they are – the most important thing in my life.”

On starting a relationship:
“You’ve got to be OK on your own before you can be OK with somebody else.”

On the importance of keeping new relationships out of the spotlight:
It matters. Especially at the beginning of a relationship. To give something a chance, to really get to know somebody, you want to do it out of the public eye. The media, they wantto rush everything. Give their seedy opinions without knowing all the facts.”

On cosmetic surgery:
I’d like to think I’ll age gracefully, but then I think, ‘Well, what if I do want a little bit of something?’
