What does your normal morning breakfast consist of?

My normal breakfast is a protein shake. I do that, I drink it on the way to the studio. I'm up and out by, oh, 7 o'clock, and I've got about a 20 or 25 minute drive to the studio. I'm usually on the speakerphone talking to the staff about the show we've got coming up.

Consider yourself a morning person?

Not at all, I'm sorry to say. But it's been a great morning so far today.

Snooze or no snooze?

Maybe I'll snooze once, but that's it. Gotta get up and get to the show!

Do you have a morning ritual?

Well, you know, I hit the shower, get Maggie, and go to the studio.

Who's Maggie?

Maggie is my dog, and she goes with me every morning to the studio. Every day. I call her Maggie the Wonder Pup.

Love it! Any morning beauty tips?

I shake like a dog. Like Maggie. Yep, that's pretty much it [laughs].
