I had dreamed of visiting Bali for many years and because I had an extended family of Balinese friends in Los Angeles, I felt connected.
I never thought I'd make the pages of 'Sports Illustrated,' because I've always been skinny.
I just remember Stella Tenant and me dancing in Donatella Versace's bathtub until like four in the morning. It was one of those 'pinch me' moments.
I just decided to take some time off. I've been modeling since '93, '92, and that's a pretty long time. I'm a single mother and I chose to focus on her.
Being in the world of fashion you have to be very self-absorbed, and you are surrounded by people who are very self-absorbed.
