I'm 5 foot 6. When I was Miss Tennessee, I weighed 135 [pounds]. You can see my bones at 135. But when I moved to Chicago, I started really putting on the pounds. I think I wanted that weight as a defense, so if the show failed, I could blame it on that. Same thing with men. As long as I'm heavy, I've got a great excuse. But I tell you, this is the biggest, biggest problem in my life. Not being able to have the self-discipline to beat this. It truly makes me real depressed.
