On her divorce from Garth:
"I regret having a marriage that didn't work, because divorce is 'forever' for children. I regret that my two oldest daughters have to grow up knowing that sometimes a family falls apart. That's my heartbreaking life lesson. But I'm happy that they can see love now."

On her life with Dave:
"I feel more accomplished because I have a family and I'm very lucky to be in a loving marriage with a man that I'm in love with and he's in love with me. That's, like, amazing so in that I find beauty."

On her children:
"They educate me every day. I've learned how to be flexible, and how to listen. I've learned how to accept people for who they are. They have different personalities - what works with one fails with another. I've learned to speak a different language with each of my children."

On her body as she ages:
"Forties started out a little bit rough because there have been some challenging life issues but physically feel better today than I did in my thirties. I feel like there is a number of reasons: I know myself better. I have boundaries, a louder voice and I know myself as a woman. I know my body better, how to dress my body and I have a better sense of style. I am also more experienced."
