What’s the most bling thing you’ve done in Dubai?
The most bling I have ever done is being a part of Dubai Bling.

The best part of filming was that I had my baby boy Aiden on the show with me. He is my rock star. He’s my lucky charm, my everything. I am so happy that I got to share the big screen with my son.
