“I’m a bit of a CNN junkie, and I love [chief medical correspondent] Dr. Sanjay Gupta. They were doing a report on people who were living to age 100 in perfect health. What added 10 years to their lifespan was flossing! That was an ‘a-ha’ moment for me. I was like, ‘How blessed have I been?’ My mom worked when I was a child, so we had dental insurance and I went to the dentist regularly. Being in the public eye, I need my teeth. There’s veneers, but I’ve got my own pearlies and they’re healthy.”
