Joining Alex Jones and Jermaine Jenas, she explained, “I’m super private and will continue to take care of my relationships.
“The only reason I wrote this chapter is because I wrote this book feeling I was cheating not only myself but everyone else if I didn’t include it.”
“It’s been such a big part of my life, it’s about falling deeply in love, that feeling that we all wish for and I was lucky enough to have that.”
