New York Times Best Selling author Nikki Turner recently interviewed me for a feature on her website called Fabulousity Fridays. Check out our “Girl Talk” session below.
Interview by Nikki Turner
I fell in love with the huge Betsey Johnson purse I saw on Free’s avatar on Twitter! If you havenâ€™t figured out by now, I truly love “girly girl” stuff. Thinking of her bag, during one of our conversations I had to ask her, Iâ€™m sure you carry all kind of goodies in your bag. What are the must haves that are always/usually in your purse on a daily basis?
1.Â Phone and phone charger!
3. Lip gloss
4. Debit card
5. Eterna 27 facial moisturizer
6. Aveda hand moisturizer
7. Hand sanitizer
8. Inhaler â€“ Just in case I end up petting a dog. Iâ€™m allergic but I love dogs!
9. Condoms â€“ Hey, hey, hey! Be prepared, even if it only happens twice a year.
What are your 10 favorite things that you canâ€™t live without?
Music, laughter, Dr. Bronnerâ€™s almond soap, baking soda, Alpha Keri bath oil, coconut water, accessories, jeggings, gorgeous comfy shoes, lovely undergarments, and cuddling.
If you could buy or give all of your girlfriends one thing, what would it be?
A week long, all expense paid vacation to Bora Bora. My friends are phenomenal women! And then $1 million a piece under their pillows to start or enhance their business.
If you could give us one piece of advice what would it be?
Take care of your health. Without it, nothing else matters.
Whatâ€™s on the horizons for you?
After a long, self-imposed exile, or rather break from the industry, currently, Iâ€™m co-hosting “The BigTigger Morning Show with Free” in DC on WPGC 95.5. Mornings from 6â€“10AM, Monday through Friday. I report the entertainment news called The E With Free.
I also have 3 features on Live in The Den with Big Tigger, which is syndicated in 65 cities on the weekends. To see what time and day it airs in your city, go toÂ LiveInTheDen.com
My website, FreesWorld.com, is doing very well (log on and sign up for my newsletter). We feature entertainment, news, editorials, new artist, shoes and life tips. It started as a site about me but is now a site for and about the people!
Iâ€™m using my creative genius to come up with TV shows, writing my first book for young ladies, and more just letting my creative flow. I have some acting roles Iâ€™m shooting at the top of the year, so Iâ€™m really excited to be back.
I also spend a good amount of time in communities across the nation speaking at high schools, colleges, detention centers, and transition homes, discussing life choices, careers, overall health and other issues like journalism, domestic violence, and breast cancer awareness. And of course, hosting events and parties. For booking: email firstname.lastname@example.org.
