Absolute OC Mag Interview

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and not fighting a flu, like myself! I am however super excited to be on the cover of Absolute OC Magazine! This was a very fun and different photo shoot for me. It’s not my typical look, but it was fun to change it up and create a very different look for the launch of this beautiful Magazine. I’m much more subdued and serious in this cover which creates an artistic point of view, however the inside photos are more of how you typically see me with my blonde curly hair and a face full of smiles! It's out now, so please pick up an issue to see the fun interview we had! Here's a snippet of it below:

Max Shar of Absolute OC: Has fame changed you as a person at all?

G: It has not changed me as a person, I’m still me. I’m silly, I’m goofy and I’m a dork. However it has changed my life in the public. Fans are always taking pictures so I have to always look good, sometimes the pictures end up in the media so I have to always try to look my best.

M: Who has been the biggest influence in your life?

G: My parents. They are amazing and wonderful people, and they are my best friends. They taught me the value of working hard, being entreprenuers themselves from the ages of 17 and 18 and married for 40 years. They are definiately the people I look up to in my life

M: If you had to choose to change just one thing in your life what would that be?

G: I don’t know if I would change anything, everything that I have gone through in my life has brought me to where I am today and taught me very valuable lessons. I am very blessed to have a wonderful family and friends, and I have a wonderful man In my life, so I feel very blessed right now.

M: How long does it take for you to get ready in the mornings before you step out of the house?

G: Truthfully or made up answer? Seriously if I had to wash my hair it could take one and a half hours but I don’t wash my hair everyday so it depends. If I’m just going to Target 3 minutes max. But I have my own makeup line and I love to put on my make-up and look good every day.

M : If you had to choose to stay for a weekend with one of the members of the Housewives of New York, who would it be and why?

G: I would love to say Bethany but she is no longer on the show. So I am going say Ramona because she seems like a lot of fun and she has her own line so we could have a good time together.

M: If you could relive any day in your past so far, which day and why?

G: Wow, good question… hmm… it would have to be the day I signed papers for my house, as a 26 year old girl it was a proud moment for me. It was the best feeling ever.

I adore your look on the cover of AbsoouteOC. I would love to see you a few times on film like that. Or with your air up, completely. You are stunning and very "for real"! Keep up the amazing work that you do. Hi Slade!

Great interview. I hope the magazine use a spell checker though! Apparently you wash your "haid" and it can take "on and a half hours" :D
