 It's debatable because I have the passion and the heart, andI'm going to love them to death. So I can say, 'you're going to Hollywood,' but also you gotta tell them 'don't hate me for what I say, don't get mad, get better.'" I will send them home with a broken heart, I'm going to be honest and truthful and open as best I can...and tongue and cheek.

 I'm watching Back Up Plan [Jennifer's movie] and I fell so in love with Jennifer because I watched her eyes and how she interacted with the actor and they really put it across that they were falling in love. I thought that takes a deep soul to be able to pull that off, and that I would maybe someday soon be looking into her eyes...not quite like that. But as most things go in my life, watch out what you dream for and they may come true, and here I am sitting next to her and it's just phenomenal.
