The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - REAL LIFE -

1 When I was a child, I was a real tomboy. I had a big brother and to keep up with him I had to run very fast, climb trees and do all the boy-type things. I was re­ally tough and brave back then – much more so than I am now. 2 I col­lect china bird fig­urines. My mother had a shelf in the kitchen full of ce­ramic mice, and I’d think, ‘Ugh, I’ll never col­lect those.’ Then the other day I looked at my shelf and re­alised it was full of china birds! 3 The worst gift I ever re­ceived was a pair of work-out pants a boyfriend gave me for Christ­mas. I was like, ‘Why are you giv­ing me th­ese? Is this a hint that I need them?’ The re­la­tion­ship didn’t last very long af­ter that. 4 My first pay cheque was for $75, for mod­el­ling back-toschool fash­ions for a news­pa­per. I was 14 and felt rich! I bought some black jeans; it was a big deal as I wasn’t usu­ally al­lowed to wear black, but it was my money and I was go­ing to spend it how I liked! 5 I’m al­ler­gic to cats. I have a farm just out­side LA with pigs, goats, chick­ens, horses, minia­ture don­keys and three dogs. My kids [Ava, 12, and Dea­con, eight] love them. But sadly there are no cats.
