When I go to teach, that’s not my workout. It’s my show. I’m 134 pounds – I’m a teeny thing. I work out 11/2 hours a day and eat 1,600 calories. I can’t stray because I have to fit into these Dolfin shorts!

I am a California girl, born and raised, so flip-flops and cutoff shorts are my go-to look. An easy Angeleno uniform, so to speak.

I hate wearing make-up, I hate doing my hair. With events and everything, you dress up so much that you get exhausted. So, whenever I go to Delhi, I’m in my dad’s oversized shirt and torn shorts.
I feel like I am a lot of who I am because I watched these shows that said it was okay to be a total weirdo. Shows like ‘Pete and Pete,’ ‘Hey, Dude,’ ‘Salute Your Shorts’ – that’s what I grew up with.
