Back in the day, when she was an up-and-coming dancer and trying to make it, she was struggling, and there was one food she remembers eating all the time to survive.
“I remember only getting to have one piece of pizza every day when I was a dancer,” the Shades of Blue star, who kicked off her career as a Fly Girl on ’90s sketch comedy In Living Color, said during NBC’s Summer Press Day for her upcoming dance competition show, World of Dance, according to Entertainment Tonight.
“That’s how I lived. I did that for a couple of years before I got my first big job,” she continued. Still, she appreciates that that struggle made her stronger. “I wouldn’t trade it for the world,” she added. “For me, coming from that struggle, this is a dream come true for me. I don’t say that lightly.”
