1. I wish I could sleep more.

2. I love my spiralizer. It makes any type of vegetable look beautiful.

3. My sister [Tamera] is older than I am by two minutes, and I always remind her of that. But I act older.

4. My biggest pet peeve is racism. I think it’s ignorant across the board.

5. My biggest fear is heights. 6. The best hashtag to describe my life is #FunnyGirl.

7. My go-to dish when I cook is spaghetti and meatballs, which my family [husband Cory Hardrict and kids Cree, 8, and Cairo, 14 months] enjoy and love.

8. I could eat red velvet cupcakes until I get sick.

9. My first car was a Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer. I had that car going into college. I remember listening to music and singing at the top of my lungs with the windows rolled down.

10. My biggest splurge when I first got a job was that Eddie Bauer car.

11. I can’t live without my Balmain leather jacket. I’d love to give it to my daughter once she gets older.

12. I burp a lot.

13. The song I like to sing in the shower is, of course, anything by Beyoncé. I’m obsessed with and love “Run the World (Girls).”

14. Since I’m a mom, my go-to coffee is made with almond milk and honey. It’s something I need to get me through the day.

15. My biggest turn-on is someone being considerat­e. That beats flowers, jewelry or candy any day.

16. My first job was as an extra on some Disney Channel project.

17. My favorite movie of all time is The Goonies. No matter when it’s on, I’ll sit and watch the whole thing as if I’ve never seen it.

18. My first celebrity crush was Michael Jackson. When I’d see him on TV, I’d cry. I had his poster and I’d kiss it. 19. If I had to be stuck on a desert island, I’d take my husband, son and daughter, ’cause with them, I know I could survive.

20. I collect cookbooks. Some of my favorites are by Giada [De Laurentiis] — she’s amazing.

21. The weirdest thing a fan’s sent me is an engagement ring.

22. I live by “carpe diem.” It’s something I think about every single day.

23. I fangirled when I met Beyoncé. I remember telling her, “Oh my gosh, I am so obsessed with you. I’m Tia.” She was like, “I know who you are.” I’d met her several times.

24. My most embarrassi­ng moment was when I met the group Shai, and a feminine product fell out [of my bag]. 25. My favorite book is

The Alchemist [by Paulo Coelho]. It taught me to focus on the simple things in life and know that I’m not on this journey alone.
