I want to help others 'think first' before diving into a pool or lake to prevent these types of life-changing accidents. I know I'm in a very fortunate minority and hope my story inspires both adults and children to be more careful.




At night if I'm in a hurry, I'll just put on a lot of mascara and black pencil all the way around the inner rim. It's a totally sexy eye in a minute and a half.




I would borrow my mom's red Borghese lipstick and smear it on like a clown!




I swim all the time at night - I've always been a water girl. It's a black-bottom pool and my pool light was out, and as I've done a thousand times I just kind of did a little seal dive. I saw a huge bright light and I literally thought, 'That's it.'




I'm a Southern girl.




There are still personalities that you bond with or a fighting spirit that you connect with, but as a host you have to stay impartial and root for all of them.




I've been a swimmer and a diver for quite a while. It was something that I think I got too comfortable with, and I dove into my black-bottomed pool and hit the slope from the shallow end to the deep end. And I had a chin to chest paralyzing break.




I broke my neck, it's a classic neck break from chin to chest. If I had been alone, I would probably be dead.




I'm a Southern girl. I like when they open the door and pull out a chair. I'm really into a man's man.




I actually had kind of one of those crazy experiences where when I hit, it was black out excruciating pain, and then white out absence of pain, and the subconscience thought that I want to go back.




My natural color is dark blond, but right now I like being a brunette. I did a movie last summer and they dyed my hair platinum - I hated it.




To help my muscles rebuild after I work out, I have a small serving of cottage cheese.




I like when they open the door and pull out a chair. I'm really into a man's man.




OMG, I am a married woman!




I have a big personality, and I think big personality plus blond hair makes me come across as glib. With dark hair, people look at your face more. Before, it was all about the hair.




I am so happy, so in love, and so content.




I love being a single mom. But it's definitely different when you're dating.
