chelsea settles interview
If you ask me (okay, you didn’t, but whatevs!) Chelsea Settles, star of her namesake reality show on MTV, is a breath of spankin’ fresh air. She’s young, cool, smart, has awesome style, and the confidence to deal with her weight and body image issues on TV. Love. Her.
That’s why I totally flipped when she popped by our office for a quick Q&A and answered our Big Gurl Ten!
Gurl: What’s your worst date story?
Chelsea: This is gonna sound really crazy, but I’ve never gone on a date. I started dating Rory in college, so we kinda just hung out on campus at night. We would stay outside all hours of the night, but we never like went anywhere, like on an official date. He’s been my only boyfriend so, I don’t know what will happen down the line…
Gurl: If you could only have one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Chelsea: Pizza! I haven’t had it in so long. I’d have to find a gluten-free pizza with low fat Mozzarella cheese. I haven’t had pizza in forever, but pepperoni pizza from Domino’s on the thin crust is AMAZING!
Gurl: Whose phone number do you wish you had?
Chelsea: Kim Kardashian, or actually, any of the Kardashians! Actually, Mason’s phone number. He’s cooler than me at this point. That is one baby I’d love to be.
Gurl: What’s something you’ve always wanted that you’ve never gotten?
Chelsea: A puppy. I’ve always wanted a little companion. That, or a Range Rover.
Gurl: What’s your secret nickname?
Chelsea: I have a ton of nicknames. Moomoo pie. That’s embarrassing. Most people just call me Chelse. Some people call me CSet. (C and Set, Chelsea Settles)
Gurl: What’s the guiltiest pleasure on your iPod?
Chelsea: Lots of Disney songs. “Under the Sea.” “I Wanna Be.” I even know the ad-libs. It’s pretty bad.
Gurl: Best advice you ever got?
Chelsea: Nothing’s permanent. You can do anything. You can try something new if you don’t like it. You can always go back to what you had before, but at least you know you tried.
Gurl: Favorite bargain purchase?
Chelsea: I get everything on the cheap. I’m definitely a bargain shopper. I’m Team Target, Team Wal-Mart, Old Navy. The shoes I have on are $25 from Shoe Carnival. I love fashion, but I can’t spend $500 on something I can get for $5. I’m not about a knockoff that’s like a fake Louis Vuitton bag or something like that, but definitely other stuff. What’s the point? You’re gonna get rid of it anyway. Trends go by so quickly, it’s silly.
Gurl: Instant pick me up?
Chelsea: It used to be ice cream, but now it’s spin class. It’s the one thing that just gets all my energy going. It’s not as daunting and like, ‘I just can’t do it, I hate it’ anymore. I love it.
Gurl: Describe the high school you in 3 words.
Chelsea: Timid, self-conscious, awkward.
