What’s your greatest fear?
As an ice-cream addict, I fear there will be no more ”free cone days” at Ben & Jerry’s.

Pick three people, living or dead, who you think would make the most fascinating dinner guests imaginable.
A pinch of Mother Teresa, a splash of Wanda Sykes and a dash of JFK.

What would you serve?
Traditional Italian fare, from one of my grandmother’s recipes. Definitely some homemade pasta with gravy – it’s not sauce, it’s gravy. I’d probably serve cannoli, too.

Define good in bed.
Firm on the back, soft when it needs to be and all night long. Oh, wait, I thought we were talking about my therapeutic mattress.

Who should star in a movie about your life?
Ellen DeGeneres. She’s very qualified to dance like me.

Who was your first celebrity crush?
Mark-Paul Gosselaar. He was – and still is – a dreamboat.

Who gets on your nerves?
Anyone who has a weak handshake.

If your home was burning, what’s the first thing you’d grab while leaving?
My gratitude journal. I write down every day five things I’m grateful for or that challenge me.

What’s your biggest turn-on?
Hillary Clinton, in a pantsuit, with a bowl of Ben & Jerry’s vanilla ice cream.
