1I did a lot of theater growing up, and in college I was in the musical 'Chicago.'
2My great-great-grandfather was a shah back in the 1800s. Unfortunately, I don't have any gold coins or jewels to show for it.
3My mother raised three kids on her own, so I was taught that to be a working mom was a good thing.
4NFL cheerleading is harder than most people think. They train up to six hours every day with games on Sundays. They gave me a great work ethic.
5To be beautiful in Texas, you had to be blonde and blue-eyed and have a name like Ann.
6I know it sounds weird, but my definition of 'sexy' has changed as I've gotten older. And being smart and informed makes me feel sexier than any outfit.
7Right when I finish a workout, I feel pretty sexy. Even though I'm sweaty and I don't smell like a rose, I feel strong. It does a lot for me mentally and physically.
8When I was in my early 20s, I looked towards exterior things to make me feel sexy - guys, clothes, shoes, etc. Now it's all about how I feel internally.
9You know, I never really paid attention to sports, which, coming from the mecca of football in Texas, is kind of odd. I played sports, but I was nerdy. Having a single mother, the pressure was on me to get good grades and a scholarship and go to college.

16Studied opera.
17When she randomly auditioned and got the part of Carmen de la Pica Morales on The L Word (2004), she wasn't sure that she wanted it because of the character being a lesbian and having to partake in various make-out/lovemaking scenes with other women, but she now considers it her dream role and also ranks it among her best work.
18Moved to Los Angeles in 2000.
19The great-great-granddaughter of a 19th century Persian Shah, Fath Ali Shah Qajar by Begom Khanom (daughter of Hossein Qoli Khan Afshar, niece of Begom Khanom, daughter of Emam Qoli Khan Afshar), through their son Jahansouz Shah.
