4. Tell seven things about yourself:

1. My oldest daughter is named Sam Malone because my husband was a ballplayer when he was young but a bartender when I met him (now he is a lawyer).

2. I was a stage mom for 2 years when Sam and her identical twin, Carly Simon played Bree Buchanan on One live to Live. YouTube - My Girl - Nash & Brennan mvid and yes, the guy who plays their daddy is super hot in real life. (btw-the infant shots are not the girls-they started when they were 3 months old)

3. I let my mother pick out my wedding gown and I got to pick out her dress for my wedding.

4. I have a Masters Degree in Communication Theory (Media Ecology) from NYU and my thesis is on men watching sports (not playing mind you...just watching) prognosis- men are silly.

5. I credit my dad with my obsession with shoes because he bought me (against my mother's wish) my first pair of kitten heels when I was 14 (shhhhhhh).

6. My favorite foods are chocolate rum cake, Pizza with Basil and BBQ Pulled Pork.

7. I always wanted to go to circus school to learn how to be an aerialist- you know those ladies who do ballet above the crowds.
