Alison Sweeney is featured in the May 2012 issue of Redbook. Here’s some highlights from her interview:
On life in Hollywood:
”Thank God my life is normal. I work hard to make it normal. My husband and I don’t want Hollywood drama. I go to the market and do the dishes. I’m not treated differently because I work on TV. Ben [Alison's son] only recently realized I was somewhat famous. He Googled me.”
On her husband of 12 years:
”My husband and I have known each other since kindergarten…I had a crush on him in school, but we never dated. Then we saw each other again after high school, and there was something instantly familiar about him. I’m a very shy person and was very closed off. But he allowed me to be myself. And there’s a safety in that.”
On staying fit & healthy:
“Fitness is not an option. Its part of my job…If I didn’t bring my duffel bag with me, I wouldn’t work out. I’m running my first official half marathon this weekend. So I need to get in my workouts after I’m done here for the day. If I go home, I know I’ll get distracted.”
Alison’s currently featured as the host of The Biggest Loser airing Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC.
