ROZONDA 'CHILLI' THOMAS IN MUSCLE & FITNESS MAGAZINE
While that might seem like the end of her dream, today the girl who hoped for superstardom and a huge family is anything but bitter. At 35, she simply has different priorities. "Through relationships, I learned being alone doesn't mean you're by yourself," she says, referring to single motherhood. "To me, the worst type of alone is being with the wrong person. My [great-grandmother] Big Momma told me to never settle. 'I don't care how old you are, 'she said, 'or how young you are--never settle.' That has always stayed with me in the back of my head."

Silk soymilk ("I have a 9 year old, so we use regular and chocolate) Smart Balance butter brown eggs turkey sausage and bacon
("I use Wilshire Farm; there are no nitrates and only three other ingredients: raw sugar, sea salt, and some spices.")
WHAT SHE COOKS FOR A TYPICAL MEAL:
