She told Andi, 50, “I think I’m crazy. I thought it would be nice to learn a new skill and my daughter and I have been watching the show for years and she loves it.
“And I was like, ‘If I’m ever going to do it, I’ll do it now when she’s 10 and she thinks I’m cool. If I leave her until 12 or 13, I will be embarrassing.
“So I thought,” do it now while I’m still flexible enough to do some of the lifts. But it’s so hard, it’s so much harder than I thought.
