On her body image:

“The first thing you learn when you put on borrowed clothes at a fashion shoot is that someone always has bigger boobs, a smaller waist and longer legs than you do. Actually, everyone has bigger boobs than I do!”

On date nights with Mark:

“A date night for us is watching Top Chef. A date night for us is getting our kids asleep before 9:30! It’s really just about checking in, asking how the other person’s day is, and cuddling up. It doesn’t have to lead to anything, although it usually does. But it doesn’t have to.”

On fame:

“I’m never recognized. We were doing the show in the Bahamas, and we were shooting in the hotel lobby, and it was [Live executive producer] Michael Gelman, Regis, and me standing there. A crowd gathered, and a woman said, “Oh, my God! It’s Gelman, it’s Regis!” and handed me her camera and asked me to take a picture of them. Then she said, ‘Where’s Kelly?’”

On her favorite family time:

“We are a family who lives for the weekends. My youngest, Joaquin, will say to me on Tuesday, “How many days until Friday, Mom?” We drive out to our house in Southampton, Long Island, on Friday, and we don’t schedule anything. We watch movies, we go to the beach. Even in the winter we’ll take hot chocolate and bagels and just sit there. My son recently asked me when that Sunday-night, disappointed pit in your stomach goes away, and I said, “Honestly, I’m not sure if it ever does.” But then Monday, I feel energized because we had a relaxing weekend.”

On her best relationship advice:

“My girlfriends and I talk about this a lot. The more, let’s say, affection — the more you do it, the more you do it. The more you reach out and hold that person’s hand, the more it’s going to happen. The less you do it, the less you do it. That includes everything from intimacy to hand-holding and kissing. I say reach out and grab your husband’s hand every once in a while. Even if he’s wrong and he makes you sick. Because a little bit of that gets you a little bit of a back rub, which gets a little bit of “You look pretty today.”
