The 22-year-old starlet opened up about playing favorites, keeping her body healthy and the paparazzi. Check it:
On her favorite Dancing partner: “I hope my partners donâ€™t get mad at this but Apolo [Anton Ohno] is probably my favorite because he was my first partner. You know, it was my first time. I got three tens for the first time, got to do the Pasa Doble for the first time and just experience everything for the first time so [Apolo] was definitely my favorite.”
On staying fit while sheâ€™s on the road: “Itâ€™s so hard to stay fit while youâ€™re traveling, but for me it always makes me feel better on the inside if Iâ€™ve worked out. I worked out this morning before the shoot. It was very early, but I made myself get up and do it and Iâ€™m so glad I did!”
On the paparazzi and being photographed on her recent trip in Mexico with boyfriend, Ryan Seacrest: “I was thinking, Oh, crap, maybe I shouldâ€™ve sucked in a little. They were photographing us from a boat, and it was the first time Iâ€™ve gotten upset, like â€˜I canâ€™t just lay out and stuff my face?â€™ It really messes with you.â€
On being proud of her body: “Growing up, I could eat anything, but the minute I hit 22, I stopped dancing and kept eating whatever I wanted, and I gained weight. Then I started reading [critical] comments in blogs. That freaks you out and you get caught up in it. But if I deprive myself, I end up binge eating. I didnâ€™t want to do that. Now if I want something, Iâ€™ll have it and I wonâ€™t feel guilty. Then the next day I wonâ€™t crave it.
