q&a interview by cali ann lee
My name is Cholita but my friends call me fabulous! My favorite phrase to say I never repeat gossip, so listen carefully. If I could be anywhere right now I would be accepting my Grammy award. I can't live without my son Valentino and razzle dazzle! I get my daily fashion fix from leopard print, copious amounts of Swarovski crystal, a great push up bra, obscenely high heels, and red lipstick, it completes every ensemble! Top 5 songs on my playlist are... ah that’s a tough one I have a constant rotating playlist. At the moment it includes Edith Piaf, Tom Jones, Nate Dogg, Whatever the most obnoxious number 1 billboard song is at any given time, Edie Gorme y Los Panchos. I feel sexiest when I’m performing. I love this designer Pinup Girl Clothing because their clothes are feminine and make me feel like an instant bombshell. From work wear to glamour goddess to sex kitten they offer so many great collections and I always feel like a woman in their clothes. Everything is superb quality, made in the USA My inexpensive beauty tip is when in doubt, go naked! I stay healthy by keeping my arms toned lifting 2 stiff cosmopolitans to my lips each day, my tongue sharp by french kissing (as many reps as needed) and exercising my right not to give a damn what anyone thinks. My definition of fashion If it ain’t sucked, tucked and offending someone you are doing it wrong. My favorite food is the olive in my martini. I'm addicted to Corsets from What Katie Did (Moses may have parted the red sea but honey if what that woman has accomplished with lingerie ain’t a holy experience I don’t know what is I went from a 36 inch waist down to 30 now that’s a miracle worker if I ever did meet one!) My favorite reality/tv show is True Blood (TEAM ERIC!) and Yo Gabba Gabba. Women are capable of so much more then they give themselves credit for. I'm afraid of nothing because it’s a waste of time. I’d rather regret the things I have done than the things I have not. I work hard at being a good mama because motherhood is the most valued and important role in my life. If I could tell my younger self (age 18-21) one thing, it would be “anything less than extraordinary is a waste of your time. Don’t compromise.” In 2 years (because 5 is just to damn long) you will find me jet setting with my entertaining on a grander scale, bigger stages, bigger productions, designing my own line of diamond jewelry and also happily married to the world’s greatest MMA fighter Georges St Pierre! Where you can find my face...
