Dad and TV Star: Mark Cuban

The Shark Tank star and Dallas Mavericks owner dishes on his killer dance moves, daddy duties and his secret sweet tooth.

7 Things You Might Not Have Known About Mark

"I may be CFO at home, but my wife, Tiffany, is the CEO. I do whatever she wants because she has made my life a thousand times better. Getting her to marry me was the best deal I ever closed."

"Most people would be surprised to learn that I love acting. I auditioned for a role in Twister and actually got callbacks. If anyone has parts for me, just holler!"

"My worst habit? I really can't seem to stop biting my nails."

"I was once paid $25 an hour to teach disco dancing at a sorority house. If you want proof that I've still got it, come to any of my girls' daddy-daughter dances."

"I like to squirt whipped cream—low fat, that is—in my mouth, even though it makes Tiff roll her eyes at me.

"Being a good dad is far more difficult than being a good businessman. I can always recover from a failed deal, but there are no do-overs when it comes to my kids."

"I embarrass my kids—Alexis, 11, Alyssa, 8, and Jake, 5—when I sing. Nothing clears a room faster."
