On the popularity of the show:
"People are sitting on their couches and they're in a relationship with us. When people come up to me, they're saying, 'What are you going to do next week?'"
On the fashion difference between Olivia & Kerry:
"Olivia has three [fashion] modes: Work Olivia, Black-Tie Gala Olivia and At Home Olivia... My fashion is more eclectic: There's Going to Work Kerry, which is gym clothes and Nike kicks. That's the Bronx girl. There's also Red Carpet Kerry and Out to Dinner With Friends Kerry."
On how she spends a girls night out:
"It would involve a lot of wine. I drink maybe twice a year. I would be with my three best friends from high school or my girlfriends from the show."
