1. What do you typically do on our non-taping weeks?
When we are not taping on “Price,” I usually work out, go shopping, catch up with my friends, try to do some other modeling on the side, or simply stay at home and do nothing…ooh, it feels great!!!
2. What do you like to do on weekends?
On the weekends, I usually like to be outdoors as much as possible. I will spend the afternoon with my mom and get some lunch together, and later go to see a movie or grab dinner with my friends. If the weather is nice enough, I will spend my day at the beach either jogging or bike riding.
3. What is your favorite place for vacation?
Vacations to me mean pure relaxation, so my favorite place is any place that has a beach and beautiful landscapes to look at. The Bahamas, for instance, is the perfect place to relax and get away from all the city traffic and pollution.
4. What’s your favorite way to relax and pamper yourself?
The spa is definitely my favorite place to relax. I love massages and beauty treatments such as facials and body scrubs…yes yes yes!!! I LOVE IT.
