Josh Holloway once brought her a portfolio of male models, who he had previously worked with in an attempt to help her find a pre-approved guy.
The cat now accompanies her to shoots and she calls him her ‘travel buddy’.
In 2008-2009, she then dated a contestant from the second season of The Amazing Race and founder of TOMS Shoes, Blake Mycoskie.
Minutes later, Mycoskie, wearing a captain’s cap and multicolored pants, steps onstage to address the roughly 250 employees. “The experiences and things we’ve done over the last 10 years changed people’s lives,” he says in a tearful speech. It’s given him the financial clout to invest in other like-minded companies.
While he’s spoken thousands of times about Toms and its one-for-one mission in the past decade, today’s talk is different. And it’s challenged him, at times, in ways he said he never imagined — from a grueling speaking circuit and management turnover to running a massive company and eventually finding a partner to buy half of it.
We were talking to people for hours, getting them excited. And today, I don’t think it could launch to the success we’ve had because media is so saturated with people doing good, which is something we feel like we played a part in and we are proud of.
