Nicole’s Personal Quotes:

"I do love to shop. But I'm a social shopper. I like to do it while hanging out with my friends. Some of them hate shopping because they treat it like something you have to plan, like a grocery list. But if I'm out and I pass a store, I just pop in."

"People would ask me about being a voluptuous woman. It was weird because I've been skinny my whole life."

"I think fame is harder when people have something to hide, but I'm very comfortable, and have nothing to hide."
