Here are some interesting excerpts from the article:
You’ve got 29 million Twitter followers and 26.5 million Instagram followers. How do you brand yourself as a celebrity with social media?
I don’t think of this as a planned-out thing. It just kind of happened. Social media plays a huge role in my life and my career. I came at the right time when people just started to get into reality shows. Social media works when you’re open, when you’re honest and people want to feel like they’re getting a little glimpse into your life. It’s not that I brand myself like I’m a celebrity. It’s just I’m living my life and sharing a part of my life with the world.
Is there any pressure to keep surprising people with the next big thing?
No matter when we think we’re so boring, no one wants to see this anymore, something really crazy happens and there are a couple more seasons of the show. It just naturally happens. I don’t know why or how. We never would have imagined that this would have gone on so long, but we’re all blessed that it has.
Do you think you’ll always be that open on social media?
You never know. I love sharing my world with people, so I don’t see me just having a freak-out and just stopping. Will I do it forever? I’m not sure. But I love the whole idea of it, especially because you get to share things your way. You get to tell your own story through your eyes.
