The America's Got Talent judge gets our "yes" vote for being a multitasking mom.
Q. You've got several TV gigs, design clothes and more. How do you manage that and be a hands-on mom to four kids?
A. If you do what you love, it never feels like hard work. I always involve myself in projects that mean something to me. My children and I have always been fans of America's Got Talent and love watching the show. And I love my collaboration with New Balance because I always found myself looking for workout wear that was fashionable and a bit more edgy. It was important for me to design a collection where women would feel confident and comfortable.
Q. What inspired you to start the Truly Scrumptious clothing and furniture line for Babies R Us?
A. It has always been a dream of mine to design a collection for kids, since I've gone through all those baby and toddler stages and learned what works and what doesn't. It's really fun because I'm able to add more color, sparkle and embellishments. I wanted my collection to be a one-stop shop for parents. Having a baby is such a special time and I wanted the nursery items to reflect that.
Q. Your oldest child, Leni, is almost a teen. Are you ready to deal with the attitude and eye-rolls and everything else? What's your game plan?
A. I have a very close relationship with all of my kids. The teenage years are filled with learning lessons and we'll take each one as they come.
Q. When she's big enough, are you going to share clothes with her?
A. We've already started this. I have definitely seen the girls running around in my high heels!
