What typically happens when I do an on-air fashion segment is I return the clothing. Well, during my last Today Show appearance, I loved a dress so much, I went back to the store and bought it.

It’s totally natural to have a body part that isn’t exactly your favorite asset. Well, fast forward a few years and I’m proudly showing serious leg in a pair of DIY cutoffs.
