Breakfast of choice: “Protein, protein, heavy protein!” Think scrambled eggs, Greek yogurt, granola and honey.
The one story she’ll never forget: The Sunrise Propane explosion of 2008.

Proudest moment: “Having a daughter and launching a new national show, [The Social,] at practically the same time. Talk about a balancing act!”
