  • Every time I went down the aisle, I was totally, 100 percent in love. I loved being in love. And the downside was, I really was attracted to men very opposite from myself. You know, that old story. You know, if you're warm, they're cold. If you're a hard worker, maybe they're lazy. If you were realist, they're a pessimist?...
  • ...On one side, there was super, super conservative, regular girl-next-door. And on the other side, there was this kind of fantasyland, pretend, dancing-school, wonderfulness: you know, the hair, the makeup, the costumes, the music, the recital halls. I mean, so for me, I needed that balance.
  • It took me quite a while to learn how to do the corporate dance. I was just too defensive. I just got involved with too much and I don't have to do that. All my companies that I work with have been around for years with me. They got the brand down. They keep it going in a really good way. I realized one day I am not going to love all the people around me. I did with my company, because we really ran it like a family. Everybody loved everybody else, and they still do. I still have my pink lady sorority club going on.
