It's an image that the media has given me as a bad girl, and the only reason they gave me that image is just because of the few things that have gone wrong in my life, and also because I grew up living in a trailer.
I've been nothing several times. But it's my faith in myself and in my father that comes back to me and makes me get back up off my butt and be something worth being proud of.
Some people, if you eat a carrot, you're killing it.
The media had me convicted of doing something wrong before I had even done anything at all, before I had talked to anyone, before I get out of bed. I'm always the bad person.
The movie portrayed me as this person who cussed every 10 seconds, and I don't cuss like that.
I was definitely a tomboy. I hated dolls.
My biological mother made my clothes or bought my clothes from Salvation Army or Goodwill.
I was a little tiger. I loved skating. You couldn't get me out of my skates. As many times as I could go to the rink, I was there.
I've been with my husband for seven years. With my husband and my son, I get my second chance in life to be loved and be happy.
I have never been the stereotypical figure skater.
