On moving forward after the death of Cory Monteith:"Getting to the other side takes a lot of work. All you can do is get to the other side. It's a struggle. When you do, there is happiness there. It's important to me to keep private some of that process with how I got here. But I am here, I am good, and I am very grateful for that."
On new boyfriend Matthew Paetz:
"Matthew is a good cook. Food, for me, was always about love and connecting.'"
On her new life:
"The new house might be a little baller. I've earned it."
On her favorite body part:
"I love my butt. It is a showstopper."
On being famous:
"Everybody thinks you're a star with roses being dropped at your feet. You have to take some fucking punches. Now I have my groove…I am much more aware. I also don't care as much. I am very content with me."
