Memorable Quotes:

I’ve never used chat-up lines; I don’t have the gift of the gab.

I’m more of a mimic. My accent tends to drift to where ever I am.

I have always thought beach weddings are beautiful. A sunset ceremony with a beautiful sky, white drapes and fire lanterns.

I’m ambitious and I’m determined and I know where I’m going to be. It’s not where I want to be, but where I’m going to be.

The best food I’ve had was actually in catering at ‘Single Ladies.’ It’s insane. I can’t live in Atlanta. In fact, even if I’m offered, I’m not sure I could come back for another six months, because I’ll just be fat.
