Personal Quotes 

If I could have a Dancing with the Stars (2005) partner, it would be Michael Jackson, but since I can't any more - sadly - it would be Roshon Fegan.
This is so beautiful... doing and making positive programming for young people is so important to me, and I will keep doing it. To all the parents out there, thank you for allowing me to be a role model for your children. I really, really do not take that for granted.
