© 2011 Copyright Notice


Just filming your show, The Price of Beauty, and what was the most memorable about that? </p> <p>Every country looks very, very different. </p> <p>Uh-hmm. </p> <p>And people just really like take care of themselves. </p> <p>Right. </p> <p>When-- like in Paris, they spend a lot of money on their facial products. </p> <p>Right and they're really into facials. Yeah. </p> <p>They're very into facials. In Morocco it was the Kohl eyeliner. </p> <p>Uh-hmm. </p> <p>And India like the-- </p> <p>Right. </p> <p>the Kohl liner which was-- I mean it's amazing. It doesn't come off. </p> <p>I know. I've seen people actually put the Kohl on like without a mirror. They can just sort of go like this and it's perfect. </p> <p>It's perfect. Yeah. And then we did the henna tattoo. </p> <p>Uh-hmm. </p> <p>And they did it so quick and it was all up my arms. </p> <p>Wow. </p> <p>It was so beautiful. We learned a lot of things about every culture. I mean, when were are in-- </p> <p>Uh-hmm. </p> <p>Uganda, in the village, they-- the fatter you are, the more beautiful. </p> <p>Right. </p> <p>So, it is a compliment to call someone fat. </p> <p>Uh-hmm. </p> <p>And in Thailand, the bleaching of the skin-- </p> <p>All right. </p> <p>That's dangerous. It's-- and all of their products were in the market and-- </p> <p>Right. </p> <p>ends up if they are out in the sun, it does end up damaging your skin. </p> <p>Right. The woman you met had a really severe case. </p> <p>Yeah, that was a very emotional day when we-- </p> <p>Yeah. </p> <p>when we sat with her but-- </p> <p>It definitely looked that way. </p> <p>in the final episode, we get to bring her back to the States and-- </p> <p>Uh-hmm. </p> <p>I wanted her to sit down with my dermatologist and, </p> <p>Uh-hmm. Oh, that's nice </p> <p>of you. </p> <p>He gave her a lot of stuff-- </p> <p>Right. </p> <p>that was bringing back the melatonin in her skin. </p> <p>Uh-hmm. </p> <p>So, hopefully, you know, she will feel beautiful again. After everything that I've gone through in the past year, </p> <p>Uh-hmm. </p> <p>with people just being fixated on me gaining some weight. </p> <p>Right. </p> <p>I mean, that was really hard on me. </p> <p>Right. </p> <p>I mean, to be in the media and the press at all times. </p> <p>Right, and be scrutinized like that. </p> <p>Yeah, to be scrutinized like that and just-- you know, I was just always paranoid. </p> <p>Uh-hmm. </p> <p>Everywhere I would go, you know, people will like oh, you're not that fat. </p> <p>You'll say? </p> <p>And I go, "Thank you. Thank you very much." I really-- I'm so glad that everybody I'm walking past is checking to see if I'm fat or not. </p> <p>Right. But it's just-- </p> <p>That was very difficult-- </p> <p>Uh-hmm. </p> <p>difficult time for me and-- </p> <p>Uh-hmm. </p> <p>doing the show, The Price of Beauty, I really found confidence within myself. I wanted to take all that was negative that everybody was just harping on. </p> <p>Uh-hmm. </p> <p>And make something positive out of it. </p> <p>Right. </p> <p>Because I think that we do put too much-- </p> <p>Uh-hmm. </p> <p>pressure on women to be beautiful-- </p> <p>Right. </p> <p>And to be perfect. </p> <p>Right. </p> <p>And so that's really what the show was and it was my own search to find my own beauty within and whatever I have inside of me that is authentic, </p> <p>Right. </p> <p>that nobody else has, you know, discovering that and embracing that. </p> <p>Uh-hmm.
