On her husband coming up with the name of her podcast 'Pretty Big Deal':
He said it so practically: ‘Pretty Big Deal.’ I was like, ‘Why?,’ and he’s like, ‘Well, you’ve always been called pretty for a big girl. 'He’s like, ‘You’re my pretty big deal, and all the people that you’re gonna be interviewing are a pretty big deal.’ I was like, ‘Perfect. Let’s do it.

On the advice Gayle King gave her:
Gayle King doesn’t know this, but she’s my mentor. I called her and I was like, ‘Okay, how do you interview people?’ And she’s like, ‘Well, it’s about curiosity. What do you want to learn about this person? Where do they come from? What can you take away?,’ and I was thinking, That’s exactly what I want to do.

On not talking about gossip on her podcast:
I’m not a tabloid; I’m not trying to get the juicy gossip on something. I’m here to talk about what matters in the world. If you happen to have, like, five ex-boyfriends that are mad famous, okay, great. Do you want to talk about one of them? Okay! I don’t care.

On having a family:
For me, being a wife and being a woman, happiness doesn’t equate to having kids. Kids will come when they come. Happiness, right now, is building with my husband and building my business.

On keeping her marriage fresh:
Just have sex! I have found that if we haven’t had sex, we get snippy, and then if we are having sex, we’re all over each other. For us it’s like, ‘Oh, let’s have sex.’ And then we’re just right back in a great mood.
