Did Russel Simmons use a pickup line on you when you first met?
No, we met through a mutual friend in Atlanta, and he was really sweet and funny. I just remember sitting next to him, and we ended up talking about yoga. But I don’t remember a pickup line at all.
“Hi, I’m Russell Simmons” is a good enough pickup line, anyway. What’d you do on your first date?
We had Indian food and then went to yoga. He’s done yoga for 15 years, and I’ve done yoga too, so it was a happy medium. I didn’t feel nervous at all; I was very comfortable. We’ve been together for 10 months and have done yoga every single day—for an hour and a half—since we met each other.
What’s your favorite position to do with him?
[Laughs] I don’t have a favorite. All of the poses have meanings to them, so I can’t pick a favorite.
Well, what’s your bendiest position?
I wouldn’t say I’m a contortionist, but I’m pretty flexible. The craziest pose I can do is the Scorpion, which is when you’re in a headstand, and you bring your feet all the way around to touch your head.
We’ll just take your word on that. Are you worried about being called a gold-digger?
Nope. Because at the end of the day, I know who I am and where my heart is. I made a connection with Russell that people will never understand. No one’s gonna get in the way of how I feel about him. People are gonna say what they wanna say, and I can’t control that, but I know where my heart is.
Are you typically attracted to elders? You must admit, Russell could be your father.
Well, bottom line, I’m an adult. It’s my decision in what I choose to do. Growing up, I was always the more mature one. I’ve always had this older mentality. I’ve always played “Mama” in every situation, so it was only natural that I end up with an older guy.
